Why buy a home that is obsolete when you can own one designed for the future? Whisper Valley offers a better way to live, both now and decades ahead, with zero-energy-capable homes ranging from the mid $200s.


As the largest sustainable master-planned community in the nation, Whisper Valley is designed around three key concepts: sustainability, technology, and healthy living.

Sustainability

Chosen as the 2019 Best Sustainable Community by Green Builder Media, Whisper Valley is making highly efficient and eco-friendly geothermal heating and cooling systems mainstream by introducing the innovative EcoSmart Solution. Now Austin’s top home builders can deliver zero-energy-capable homes filled with smart home technology, all in a beautiful community filled with amenities that focus on healthy living, organic gardening, and connecting people who want a better way to live.


A growing number of homebuyers want to reduce their carbon footprint and save natural resources, and Whisper Valley makes it easy through a  community-wide GeoGrid that reduces home energy consumption by 65-70 percent. This results in exceptional savings on monthly energy bills and provides a HERS rating typically between 16 and 26 — far, far below the average HERS ratings of  60-plus that’s found in most of today’s new construction homes.

Technology

These EcoSmart homes are safe-guarded and managed by a Google Nest package that includes Nest Yale door locks, Google Home Hub, Nest Learning Thermostat, and the Hello Video DoorBell.  


Google Fiber delivers high-speed internet service, which is critical to the large number of people who now work from home and need consistent, high quality service. Over one-third of Whisper Valley homeowners say that GoogleFiber was the top reason they moved there.

Healthy living

Whisper Valley’s holistic approach to living includes a wide array of health and wellness activities directed by Kara Weinstein, the community manager and lifestyle director. Amenities include a resort-style swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, and nature trails, as well as a show kitchen that hosts cooking and nutrition classes utilizing delicious organic produce from the community’s many organic demonstration gardens.


New Phase 2 amenities opening soon include a dog park and event lawn, plus more gardens and parks.


Lifestyle programming includes yoga, fitness, and meditation classes and 5K runs and biking clubs, as well as activities that bring friends and neighbors together at community carnivals, food trucks events, and holiday gatherings.
