If you enjoy relaxing at the beach or the beauty and sophistication of California’s wine country, you’ll love High Hill Development, the new master-planned community of vacation homes in Arp, a community in Smith County about 20 miles southeast of Tyler.

“High Hill Development will be the only location in Texas to combine the beach vacation home amenities of the Florida and Washington coasts, plus the atmosphere of California’s wine country, all in one place,” says Jason Romano, co-founder and High Hill Development Principal.

“My own family has enjoyed Florida’s Seaside for almost two decades, but it’s hard to carve out time to get there as often as we’d like. That’s where this dream began. High Hill’s central location between Dallas and Shreveport makes the site easily accessible regionally and nationally for getaways all year long,” he says.

High Hill Development will feature world-class architectural designs created with owners and guests in mind. It offers its community members the combination of home ownership and leisure travel with the finest in modern amenities. The new development includes sites for 110 single- and two-story luxury homes on half-acre lots and 14 condominiums.

Along with scenic views, High Hill Development features a park-like natural setting, hiking trails, bike paths, a chapel and amphitheater.

Luxury Amenities

Residents and guests will enjoy concierge services, fine dining, culinary programs, a live music venue and special events. High Hill will offer golf enthusiasts a six-bay golf range with real-time interactive data, a golf course, infinity pool, sunset bar, a wide range of outdoor activities and a curated retail market space to make stays even more convenient.

As a total-service provider, High Hill Management Co. will maintain the grounds and coordinate vacation rental management for owners and guests.

Based on the principles of New Urbanism and situated among the rolling hills and forests of the region, High Hill Development is located on 85 acres neighboring the existing High Hill Farm Resort and Spa on County Road. The resort is owned by Romano and his wife, Sharon.

High Hill Development’s residents have full use of High Hill Farm Resort and Spa, home to the Côte restaurant, an indoor event venue with 3,000 square feet of meeting space, a variety of outdoor venues, board room, 11 private bungalows, an infinity pool, massage therapy, hiking trails and a nine-hole golf course.

High Hill Development is expected to bring revenue and community attractions that will benefit area residents and the greater East Texas economy.

In addition to all on-site amenities and activities, the surrounding community offers homeowners and visitors cultural and outdoor exploration opportunities, golf and shopping excursions, culinary and organic farming tours, hiking, hunting, fishing, lake activities, horseback riding, art and culture as well as a thriving business and medical community.

Members of the greater East Texas area will enjoy High Hill Development’s community-wide special events, lectures and live concerts as well as curated retail and culinary offerings and new-to-theregion arts, lifestyle, wellness and sporting opportunities.

High Hill Development’s luxury homes and condominiums are planned in a landscapecomplementary aesthetic with hues and architectural features that highlight the natural surroundings. All dwelling exteriors will be constructed in French plaster, featuring metal roof accents and insulated windows. Owners have a variety of exterior and floor plan options, each offering vaulted ceilings, hardwood flooring, natural stone fireplaces, high-end appliances, audio systems, covered and screened porches or balconies, private courtyards and crushed gravel drives and garages, along with pool options. “We expect these homes will be the perfect complement to the flexible way we live today. Owners may choose to spend seasons or months at a time here or enjoy holidays or occasional weekends in their homes while High Hill Management manages rentals the rest of the year. It’s wholly customizable according to owner needs and desires,” says Romano.
