LakeHouse will offer a highly anticipated resort-style amenity center with year-round recreational activities in a premium lake living setting
KATY, TEXAS (November 30, 2018) – Trendmaker Homes & Development has announced that construction is underway at LakeHouse, a new gated community just west of Houston in Katy. As the developer and homebuilder of LakeHouse, Trendmaker will deliver upon completion approximately 350 home sites and several community amenities on a 225-acre property. The epicenter of the lifestyle community is The Lakehouse Recreation Center, a resort-style amenity and fitness center, which is under construction.
“As the cornerstone of LakeHouse, The Lakehouse Recreation Center represents an important milestone in the launch of the new community,” said Joe Mandola, president, Trendmaker Homes. “It harkens back to the days of backyard campouts, watching the kids play, and having a real sense of community. Residents and families will be able to enjoy the outdoors, go swimming, and gather with family and friends in a carefully designed, thoughtfully envisioned space.”
The Lakehouse Recreation Center will feature a 4,000-square-foot resort style pool with water slide and splash pad, a playground that features a multi-tiered play structure with slides, balance bridges and climbing features, swings, a toddler playhouse and open areas for multiple age groups. The recreation center will include Neighborhood Green, a 2,800-square-foot activity lawn made from water-saving artificial turf where residents can gather for yoga, sports, or outdoor activities of all kinds. Other features include a fitness center, 60-foot-long shade structure with seating areas perfect for community gatherings, celebrations and parties, a fishing pier, a kayak and canoe launch for easy access to the lake, walking trails that will connect residents to the recreation center, and Wi-Fi for the whole recreation center area. The center is expected to open in early 2019.
Trendmaker Homes will offer premium lake living to a broad range of new homebuyers—from first-time homebuyers to move-up professionals—with homes on spacious 50’, 60’, 70’, and 90’ wide sites that include oversize backyards. The one- and two-story homes will feature open floorplans with up to five bedrooms, 2 to 5.5 baths, and two- to three-car garages, and will range in size from 1,800 square feet to 5,000 square feet. All plans will offer features from Trendmaker Homes’ HomeSmart™ program, such as Lennox Wi-Fi controlled smart thermostats, Schlage Touch Keyless entry locks, and Ring Pro video doorbells. Select plans will offer Trendmaker’s signature hidden storage room and dual shower heads in master showers and incorporate optional amenities such as media rooms, outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplace, extended covered patios, and covered balconies.
“In addition to a premium outdoor living lifestyle and some of the most unparalleled home amenities on the market, residents will enjoy no Municipal Utility District (MUD) tax, meaning lower payments compared to communities with a MUD tax. This gives residents more purchasing power, more house, and the ability to save more money each month to use towards other things,” said Mandola.
LakeHouse provides easy access to nearby Hwy 99, I-10 and Hwy 290, and offers a quick commute to local and regional employment, including the Energy Corridor business district. Numerous shopping and dining options include LaCenterra in Cinco Ranch, Katy Mills Mall, and the Houston Premium Outlets in Cypress off Hwy 290. Children living at LakeHouse will be able to attend school at the nearby highly acclaimed school district of Katy ISD, including Bryant Elementary, Katy Junior High, and Katy High School.
Trendmaker Homes anticipates that the grand opening and start of sales will begin in early 2019. Prices are expected to range from the $200s to $600s. For more information, visit lakehousekaty.com.
