71Xsuites is the culmination of decades of work by Bill Schultz on the master plan 195-acre Covered Bridge subdivision. Located in Oak Hill Austin, Covered Bridge offers homes, condos, and apartments, all currently served by pools and trails. At the entrance of HWY 71, Covered Bridge offers commercial uses. Bill’s planning has always maximized the beauty of the land, whether it be single-family houses with hilltop views or commercial buildings seen from bypassing residents and visitors.
All views, as well as natural sunlight, were determining design factors in building 71Xsuites. The green space and trees all preserved to provide that Hill Country feel to each individual’s experience while sitting at their desk and working. This accomplishment was a painstaking exercise for Bill years ago. Today’s finished project has resulted in large roof overhangs with balconies, an abundance of windows for spectacular views, and no hassle of direct sunlight.
This approach was second nature to Bill, as he has proven within the development of Covered Bridge itself and other noteworthy projects, including a waterfront residential subdivision. Whether viewing Lake Travis from a bedroom or viewing the nearby valley from an office at 71Xsuites, Bill focuses mostly on the users’ experience.
