Developer Highlight: Hunt Communities


With its nickname of the “most historic small town in Texas,” Bastrop oozes charm. With its walkable downtown with vintage architecture, strong local economy, and community spirit, Bastrop might just be the perfect Texas town. 

The friendly city is the ideal spot for The Colony, a new planned community that builds upon what makes the town great with picturesque homes from award-winning builders. The developer responsible for meticulously planning the layout of The Colony is Hunt Communities. A planned-community developer with decades of experience to draw upon. 

A legacy of craftsmanship 

Since its founding in 1947, Hunt has built thousands of houses across all 50 states, providing countless families across a span of generations a place to call home. Founded by M.L. Hunt and his sons Jack and Kelly all those years ago, the company is still in the family today and continues to create master-planned communities where families can grow and thrive.

“Consistent with the standard we set for our other master-planned communities, Hunt intends to create the highest-quality community in this submarket,” said Justin Chapman, President of Hunt Communities. 

This means creating a community that is built to highlight the natural surroundings and provide world-class amenities for its residents in addition to homes that fit their lifestyles.  

Practical design and masterfully constructed

Hunt Communities has tapped some of the best home builders in the state of Texas to create an array of single-family homes that are unique in character, yet beautiful in design with modern craftsmanship. 

“Bastrop is beautiful and The Colony offers many amazing amenities to residents in a serene setting,” said Rick Neff, Senior Vice President of Development for Hunt Communities, “But the homebuilders are the backbone of this development.

Hunt has worked with the home builders to ensure that each home’s outer appearance complements the rolling hills and piney woods that are so iconic to this region of the state. 

With home prices starting in the high $200’s and going up to the low $700’s, there’s a wide array of homes available to fit various homebuyer budgets. Prospective homebuyers will be able to choose from move-in-ready options or build from the ground-up, customizing as they go. 

With eight home builders under Hunt’s leadership, residents of The Colony can rest assured they’ll have a variety of floor plans and styles to choose from, without having to sacrifice quality craftsmanship or modern amenities. 

Find your dream home

With numerous homes currently under construction, finding your dream home is simply a matter of reaching out

Among these are 1-story homes built by Gehan construction, with both offering over 2,000-square feet of living space with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a 2-car garage. Several 3-bedroom 1 and 2-story homes are slated to be complete in early spring and summer, making now the perfect time to start looking for the ideal home that suits your lifestyle.
