We published our Towne Lake profile page today with stats, amenities, maps, pictures, etc.
Single family house prices in Towne Lake have been on the high end as far as home prices go for Houston area master planned communities. The lowest end houses range in the $250s and go up to the $600s. However, this price range is about to expand from both sides. Towne Lake announced a new section of 60′ lots with prices expected to start in the low $200s and new custom home builders on larger lots in a gated section expected to go in the $700s+.
The Heritage at Towne Lake
Also unique to Towne Lake is their “active adult” neighborhoods called “The Heritage at Towne Lake”, an adult-only neighborhood for people ages 55 and higher. These lots are smaller than those in the single family sections with prices ranging from the $170s to the mid $300s.
The big amenity here is obviously the lake. The ultimate vision of the developer is to not only allow residents to use the lake for fishing and skiing (motorized boats are allowed), but to also use a boat to visit neighbors, shop at waterfront stores, and eat at waterfront restaurants.
Towne Lake also has a pool and splash pad, parks & playgrounds, tennis courts, and a fitness center. The Heritage has a community center (billiards, cards, and a ballroom), it’s own pool, and it’s own fitness area.
The current pool is average in size, but the proposed main pool and marina area will be very nice. It will include an olympic size swimming pool, play pool, water slides, a lazy river, and a large marina / boat docks.
There is also an open-air lake-side pavilion for special events in the master plan.
Towne Lake is a huge asset to the Cypress area. In addition to the lake, the nice houses, and amenities, they have family friendly events year round such as 4th of July celebrations, breakfast with Santa, an annual triathlon, and the list goes on and on.
The main drawback to Town Lake, at least in these first few sections that they have been building out, are the huge power lines that go right through the southern end of the community. This is obviously no fault of the developer, but those power lines are painfully obvious no matter where you go within the neighborhood. The fact that this section of the development was built on prairie land without any trees does not help either as some large trees would help block the eye-sore.
I am curious on why the Caldwell decided to begin development on the southern edge of the community versus closer to the northern part. The northern sections of the community has trees plus it is a little closer to Hwy 290 which would help out with commute times a little bit.
So if you are in the market for a nice house in a master planned community with a lot of amenities and activities and power lines do not bother you, you definitely need to include Towne Lake on your list of places to look.
