A neighborhood that continues to romance the residents
Selecting a neighborhood is very much like finding the person whom you will marry. When you fall in love with someone, first, there is first a hint of attraction. Next the suitor makes you feel safe, secure and warm. Then you slowly discover dozens of magical qualities about them, each quality increasing your level of interest. Infatuation comes quickly, but true love blooms over time.
Parklake Village, a little waterfront jewel, east on Stonelodge from Fry Road offers just such a situation to the lucky few that call it home. Visitors and future homeowners who drive through the well-manicured entrance will feel their first hint of attraction when they see stunning Mediterranean and traditional homes surrounding sparkling lakes. Next, the lucky homeowners will be made to feel safe and secure by the beautiful access gate, proximity to Pattison elementary, and the friendly camaraderie of the neighborhood. Then the homeowners will slowly discover the other magical qualities of the neighborhood, detailed in this article, each increasing the level of interest. Infatuation comes quickly to anyone who visits this neighborhood, but true love will bloom overtime for the homeowners lucky enough to call Parklake Village home.
Parklake Village is nestled over 73 acres and features almost 15 acres of lakes. Fadi Semaan, the manager of the company that has overseen the development of Parklake Village from the early stages is very proud of the fact that only 118 homes will be built in the neighborhood, only 1.6 homes per acre. Mr. Semaan noted, "We wanted each homeowner to be able to be able to have a pool and still have a large backyard." Mr. Semaan can live anywhere, but still resides in Parklake. His voice resounds with pride when he notes that he has seen neighborhood children pull six-pound bass from the stocked lakes. Homeowner Jennie Marzella states, "Our backyard feels like our own little retreat. Looking out at one of the water is a relaxing pass time especially when we entertain."
Walks through the neighborhood are highlighted by architecture and landscaping reminiscent of a stroll though a south Florida resort hamlet. Many homeowners look at their home as their own private vacation spot. The stunning architecture and waterfront amenities may provide the initial hint of attraction, but internal features like breathtaking master retreats, epicurean kitchens and water features, high end media rooms are common features in this community. One home even features a full gym and recording studio. Many of the homes were custom built to meet the homeowner's own idea of paradise.
There is much to enjoy in the neighborhood. Many of the neighbors interviewed did not even mention the lakes or their beautiful custom home. Trisha Cubit loves the fact that she can walk her children to Pattison Elementary, recently ranked among the best schools in Texas by Texas Monthly Magazine. She also mentioned the camaraderie of the neighborhood. She especially enjoys the Parklake Ladies Tea and the neighborhood progressive dinners.
Ms. Cubit also stated that her homes, "close proximity to George Bush Park allows her family to almost instantly be in a park setting." Neighbor Russell Wright agrees, "We have the lake views across the street and 7,500 acres of woods and trails off the back yard. It is so private and peaceful."
Fadi Semaan stated that the park and trails were a key draw for the developer as well. He feels there are other communites on the lake, but few if any can offer all the little details of Parklake Village. "From the back of the neighborhood you wan literally walk or bike through George Bush and Terry Hershey Park and emerge a few blocks from Beltway 8 and I-10." Parklake Village is the perfect setting for outdoor enthusiast who want the come home to the luxury of lakefront living.
Russell Wright continues, "We used to live in nearby Nottingham Country, and about 7 or 8 years ago we discovered Park Lake Village. At that time, there were only a handful of homes that were completed, but we thought that the subdivision had the potential to be one of the coolest in the Katy area. The size of the neighborhood is just right. It is a warmly inviting and quiet atmosphere that we have enjoyed calling home for the past four years."
As the neighborhood nears completion more homeowners have the opportunity to buy one of the beautiful existing homes or design the homes of their dreams. Just as a paramour woos a spouse, Parklake Village waits to charm the next generation of home homeowners with the neighborhoods obvious appeal and hidden charms.
