Houston Luxury Home Builders

Sep 3, 2007
Houston has long been considered one of the most cosmopolitan of cities, but according to Money Magazine and CNN Money (among others) the best place to live in the Houston metro area is the small city of Sugar Land. Sugar Land, Texas, once a company town owned by the Imperial Sugar Company, has been making a big splash in many circles and the 2006 Money Magazine award - third place among the Top 100 Best Places to Live in the US - is only the biggest in a series of "Best of the Best" awards that spans the last ten years.

In addition to the Money award, Sugar Land has also placed high on The Best Places to Raise Your Family, The Best Cities for Young People, Best Places for Business Relocation and has been named the Fittest City in Texas for the past four years running. It's also the fastest growing city in Texas, with population growth of 158% in the past ten years.

The low crime rate, low tax rate and high quality of life index have made Sugar Land one of the most popular destinations for companies who are looking to locate an office close to the major metropolitan area of Houston. Houston luxury home builders have responded by teaming up with development companies like The Johnson Development Corp to create luxurious homes in carefully master-planned subdivisions in Sugar Land and other nearby cities and towns.

These master-planned communities offer amenities like lakeshore living, golf courses and country clubs, water parks and retail areas that put everything residents could need or desire within a few short miles of their front doors - all while preserving the privacy and natural beauty of the land itself.

Among the hottest new addresses in the Houston area is Johnson Development Corp's community, Riverstone. Riverstone, located in Fort Bend County, actually spans two Houston area cities - Sugar Land and Missouri City. The luxury community is built around over 500 acres of sparkling lakes, with many of the home site properties enjoying lakefront access and lake views.

A number of top Houston luxury home builders are involved in the building, each offering many different architectural styles and home plans for new buyers. The variety of home styles and customizations available ensures that every home built in the upscale development will be unique, bearing the stamp of its owners.

Riverstone is planned around the beautiful man-made lakes, and will include many amenities for residents, including a championship golf course and attached country club clubhouse. The plan includes over 300 acres of park land with 28 miles of marked hiking trails - would you expect any less from the Fittest City in Texas? The community will also include several recreation complexes, one of which is already complete. The complexes will offer facilities for swimming, tennis and other activities to make them community centers available to the residents of 74 separate and unique neighborhoods.

Residents of the master planned community will enjoy a lifestyle that includes swimming, fishing and boating on the beautiful lakes, hiking along the wooded trails through majestic oak forests, dining at fine restaurants and attending community events that are designed for gracious and warm family living. The Sugar Land community calendar of events includes planned annual activities like the Daddy-Daughter Dance and the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Each community is built around its parks, playgrounds and recreational activities that fit the active outdoor Texas lifestyle.

Among the Houston luxury home builders involved in the development of Riverstone are Westport Builders, who are the builders of the stunning and upscale The Manors subdivision of townhomes, which offer eight different floor plans and many customizations in a gated, luxury community with residences starting in the mid-$230s and ranging to about $500,000.

In other neighborhoods, Houston luxury home builders Ashton Woods, Coventry, David Weekley, Highland, Newmark, Perry, Trendmaker and Wilshire offer a wide variety of production homes starting in the $250s, and Bayou Bend, Christopher Sims, Peterson Homebuilders, Sterling Classics and Westport Homes are creating custom luxury homes on large lots in choice neighborhoods on private streets, many of them in gated subdivisions to provide the ultimate in luxury living.

Sugar Land is still considered one of the best bargains for those who aspire to luxury living in family-friendly communities. With home prices starting in the low $200's and ranging up over $1 million for stunning works of architectural art by some of the top Houston luxury home builders, Sugar Land is definitely the place to be raising your family and enjoying life to its fullest.
