Design Review Process

The Barton Creek North subdivision was developed with very stringent deed restrictions to ensure everlasting beauty and continuity.  In order to ensure that property values are maintained and consistent design guidelines are applied, the Barton Creek North Property Owners Association relies on our resident volunteer Architectural Control Committee and the expertise of architectural professionals. Each of our eleven gated communities is governed by their own unique set of deed restrictions.  For example, properties located on golf courses are subject to buffer zone setbacks that require special attention, while other properties have condominium restrictions or specific landscape materials requirements.

The following sub associations are subject to Barton Creek North Master Architectural Control Committee oversight:

The Fairways*

The Foothills

Governor’s Hill 

North Rim

The Ridge

The Terraces


Wimberly Lane Phase I

 Wimberly Lane Phase II (contact Matt Moore, Stratus Representative at 512-899-1376)

 The Woods, The Woods II and The Woods III


Additional areas that fall under the Barton Creek North Master Architectural Control Committee authority include:  Marquis Apartments and St. Gabriel’s Catholic School.

*Currently, oversight authority for The Fairways and Watersmark has been delegated to the respective development areas. 

Every project, new construction, pools, additions, and even landscape and lighting changes must go through the Master Architectural Control Committee’s design review process.  All improvements must be made through the use of The Woods at Barton Creek Architectural Guidelines. This approval process typically takes 30 to 45 days once initial plans are received.  Incomplete submittal package is the most prevalent reason for delays.
