Situated just east of the new SH-130 Tollway just 20 minutes from Downtown Austin, Whisper Valley is an environmentally-conscious, master-planned community offering zero energy capable homes priced from the $230s to $400s.
The 2,062-acre, mixed-use development by Taurus Investment Holdings consists of residential neighborhoods plus planned retail with neighborhood services, restaurants and boutique shopping as well as office/commercial. There are also two school sites set aside to serve Whisper Valley students, as well as a planned transportation hub and a fire station.
The community’s state-of-the-art Discovery and Amenity Center features a Bosch Show Kitchen for cooking demonstrations and events, an onsite fitness center, a resort-style geothermal-heated pool, an event room, and a Tesla Destination Charging connector. The development also offers 700 acres of green space including a planned 600-acre signature park and dog park.
Whisper Valley also offers a custom organic farming and home food delivery program in partnership with Lettuce Networks. The Whisper Lettuce program allows homeowners to choose food grown onsite in the community’s farms or even have a mini-farm installed right in their backyard. Another convenient option is Whisper Lettuce's meal kit delivery plans. Each meal kit includes all the recipe items needed to create nutritious, balanced meals, all at a cost that is lower than the grocery store. Phase I of the program is already producing fruits and vegetables delivered to residents’ doorsteps.
