There’s an abundance of desirable master planned communities in Katy, Texas and surrounding cities. They’re not only a haven – a place of shelter but also a place of pleasure. A place you’d want to go home to and stay in. Somewhere you can truly say ‘there’s no place like home’ because you don’t want to be anywhere else, be it for rest, relaxation and recreation. That to me is a master planned community.
A master planned community in my own definition is a huge development, usually over 1000 acres, mostly residential but with mixed use, meaning there are commercial/shopping centers, even schools & a galore of amenities, usually the trade-mark of a master planned community. I’ve seen Olympic-size swimming pools, even water-parks; lakes for canoeing, even water-skiing; biking, jogging trails, beautiful landscaped parks, tennis, basketball courts, high-tech gyms, mini theaters, multi-purpose halls for parties. It’s like vacation time the whole year round! Some are gated and/or manned. Virtually a master planned community is like a mini city and a mini resort. It’s the place you want to be and where most of what you need is within your reach.
Master planned communities come with a price though. Price commensurate with amenities available I should say. House prices are more expensive, of course HOA Fees are as well, in order to maintain those perks that go with the neighborhood. I would definitely go for it if I can afford it. I think it pays for itself, in terms of what you are getting especially if you’re one who would enjoy these extra perks. I also think that it adds to the home’s re-sale value as more and more people are looking to live in these kind of neighborhoods.
Here is my top pick master-planned community in Katy: There are a number of master planned communities in Katy but Cinco Ranch is still the one for me. Over 7000 acres of development, there’s not only a wide variety of home styles and price range to choose from, but there’s also recreation, rest & relaxation for everyone of every age. There is even one section for senior living here in this master planned community in Katy. I like it for its beautiful parks, greenbelts, large & wide variety of swimming facilities; putting green, and tennis courts abound. La Centerra, the new shopping center, have plenty of restaurants and shops and set in a most classy & tasteful style. There are about 15 schools housed within this beautifully developed master planned community. As they say, there’s everything for everybody in this favorite master planned community of mine in Katy.
