Without even having been completed, a new custom-home neighborhood in the Texas Hill Country is raising eyebrows and earning accolades. Friedën, the new Fredericksburg neighborhood that’s in the process of being constructed, has earned the prestigious honor of being the first Texas community included in the Southern Living Inspired Community list by the magazine of the same name.

Touching on all things Southern, including lifestyle and values, this list encompasses communities with great aesthetic and appeal. It features properties in Alabama, Georgia, and the Carolinas, among others. Friedën is the first Texas community to become a part of this select group. Of this recognition, Skip Preble, Heirloom Communities CEO, told “It’s an incredible opportunity for our community to be recognized by Southern Living, and to be in such great company. They believe in our idea of a community of modern farmhouses, and we think Friedën is in line with the Southern Living lifestyle. Their support will be a huge help when lot selection opens.” Located south of the downtown Fredericksburg core, Friedën is a 220-acre master-planned community consisting of a variety of modern-farmhouse-style homes in varying price points.

Kristen Payne, Meredith’s Vice President of Licensing (the publishing company for Southern Living) told, “They’re determined to build something that reflects the lifestyle Fredericksburg is famous for, from the preservation of the landscape to the design of the homes.” Friedën developers have said that over 40 percent of this planned community will remain as dedicated green spaces. This includes three natural lakes. The first homes will debut in 2019, and over the course of the project, approximately 240 homes will make up the entirety of the community. Additional amenities are planned to include a community pool, a trail system, a fitness center, and a modern-barn venue.
