Firethorne Katy TX focus neighborhood for June 27, 2012
Firethorne Katy TX focus neighborhood for June 27, 2012 is another master planned community in far west Katy where the entrance is off of FM 1463. This is the fourth blog of my series of 7 blogs (or more) discussing neighborhood in the Katy or surrounding areas. Similar to both Churchill Farms, Cross Creek ranch and Cardiff Ranch, as Firethorne has what some call the small town charm or appeal of Katy/Fulshear but major advantage of being close to a huge US city being Houston. My guess is Firethorne depending on where you start and stop is probably about 28 -030 miles almost due west of downtown Houston.
Firethorne is built on approximately 1,400 acre with 150 areas devoted to parks and other recreational facilities. One of many key highlights of this neighborhood is the 12 acre lake which is surrounded by greenbelts, hike and bike trails, parks, and playgrounds for the kids, wildlife observation section and is a natural bird habitat. The Katy Rotary club holds its annual Katy Triathlon at Firethorne.
There are several new homes still being built in Firethorne. The applicable builders include Coventry, Highland Homes, M/I Homes, Perry and Plantation. Prices of new construction range from the high 100,000 price up to $800,000. Right now there are 62 homes listed in the HAR MLS system available in Firethorne with prices ranging from $167,000 to $599,990.
Families will love all the amenities available including resort-style multi-level swim center, sports fields, neighborhood community center with a meeting room, fitness center which is fully equipped and a fairly new competitive swimming pool with six 25 yard length lap lanes.
Firethorne has homes zoned to both the Katy ISD and Lamar Consolidated School District. Katy ISD will open a brand new elementary school in Firethorne this fall.
