The Bounce – The Story of Parklake Village
By Timothy Sojka, Katy Realtor® and Parklake Village Specialist
“Everyman falls, some men break and some men bounce.”
This quote defines us. Each of us battle our challenges. Our challenges can either engulf us and pull us down or create an opportunity for success. The most talented, the wealthiest, the best looking among us stumble at some point. Rich or poor, strong or weak, no one and nothing is immune.
Many of our favorite stories highlight those who have risen, fallen and risen again. However, man is not the only entity that can bounce back. Neighborhoods can bounce as well.
Parklake Village is a community that is rebounding. If this community were an actor it would have all the needed tools for winning the Oscar -- looks, talent, winning smile, sense of humor and sex appeal. With manicured common spaces, inviting neighbors and a feeling of a small town, Parklake Village is ready for the next act.
Like an actor who had a breakthrough role then made several bad choices, Parklake Village started with a lot of promise but simply stalled and failed to reach its early potential due to some poor development choices, past foreclosures and a lack of positive publicity. But, the original developer is gone and a strong homeowner's association is taking this gem of a community to the next level.
This diamond level community has a lot going for it. Parklake Village is zoned to some of Katy's best schools including Pattison Elementary, McMeans Junior High and James E. Taylor High School The gated community backs to George Bush Park and features two sparkling lakes stocked with large catfish, bass and perch.
Thanks to great leadership from the HOA and good stewardship by recent and current builders, the community is finally delivering on its early promise. Recent waterfront homes have sold for more than 150 per square foot. Enterprising builders and future homeowners are purchasing the final lots. Like any talented actor, the neighborhood is starting to understand the role that best suits this community. Parklake Village is certainly learning to play the part with panache.
The last few years have seen some stunning estate homes completed and sold. Unique and exquisite lots back to George Bush Park and the neighborhood lakes. Magnificent homes are being created to satisfy any discerning buyer. Where else can you find large 1/2 to 1/3 acre lots with access for a dock and boat in Katy? Even the traditional lots have added beautiful 4000+ square foot custom homes.
Parklake Village is bouncing back. For the homeowners and admirers that have always seen the potential, the results have been worth the wait.
