They are also ideal for residents with active lifestyles with the 645-acre Old Settlers Park adjacent to Diamond Oaks and the 800-acre regional park next to the Gardens.
Blackburn can trace its roots back to 1984 when R. Julian Allen began a construction company in Oxford, Mississippi. When R.J. Allen & Associates began purchasing the apartments and condos they were renovating near the University of Mississippi campus, Blackburn Communities was formed in 2009 to manage the residential development. R.J. Allen and Associates continues to focus on commercial construction in both Mississippi and Texas. You’ve probably shopped in one of the many gas stations and convenience stores they’ve built in our area.
Blackburn Communities won the Community of the Year Award for the Greater Austin area 2 years in a row when they opened Oaks at Wildwood in Georgetown. The Preserve at Mayfield Ranch was the company’s second community in Williamson County, located off of 1431 and Mayfield Ranch Blvd. The Preserve was so popular that it sold out two years ahead of schedule.
Blackburn is both the builder and developer of the communities it creates. This provides a number of advantages to the consumer. Blackburn is able to integrate and save many of the older original trees on the property. The consumer has a builder who is more invested in the long-term success of the development. Having one builder also maintains a continuity to the look and feel of architecture throughout a neighborhood.
Blackburn Communities is proud to be a Mansion Member of the Williamson County Association of Realtors. We know that Realtors® are an important part of our success. That’s why we’ve invested in providing free continuing education classes for real estate agents. We’re looking forward to continued growth and success in Central Texas.
