Austin-based builder Wes Peoples Homes is finishing up the first few of more than 100 cottage homes in Solms Landing, a 98-acre mixed-use development adjacent to the Creekside shopping center near Resolute Baptist Hospital in New Braunfels.

Over the next two years, the project will total 117 cottages when complete, Founder Wes Peoples said.

The takeaway

The development—dubbed Garten Haus Cottages at Solms Landing—will consist of cottage homes ranging from 875-1,389 square feet in size and feature two bedrooms and one-, two- and two-and-a-half bathrooms. The cottages range in price from $278,000-$342,000.

The cottages will not have attached garages, but will have detached 50-square-foot multiple purpose rooms, Peoples said.

“We refer to it as 'zoom' rooms. They come standard; they're on slabs. They come standard not finished out inside so you can use them as storage,” Peoples said. “Since all are eligible for short term rentals, you can put your owner's stuff in there when you're renting it out.”

Peoples said in addition to the owner storage, should a buyer want to utilize the short term rental zoning, for an additional charge the stand-alone rooms could be finished out into a private office space for residents working remotely.

Diving in deeper

The cottages are located centrally within Solms Landing and next to The Court House, an entertainment venue that is slated to have pickleball and padel courts, a game area, a full bar, restaurant, playground, splash pad and live music stage, as previously reported by Community Impact.

Peoples said “numerous businesses” are potentially coming to Solms Landing. A brick-and-mortar farmers market is anticipated to open nearby the cottages, along with a Cajun market and cafe and several other businesses.
