Homes for Sale in Katy’s Firethorne August 21, 2013


Firethorne Katy TX  is a master planned community in far western section of Katy with the neighborhood entrance located off of FM 1463. Firethorne in certain respects is similar to other neighborhoods in the immediate vicinity including Churchill Farms, Cross Creek Ranch and Cardiff Ranch, as Firethorne has what some call a small town charm and feel about it. A big advantage of course to living in this neighborhood is that you are close to a huge US city being Houston with all the attractions a big city contains. I estimate  Firethorne is depending on where you start and stop probably about 28-32 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 a 12 acre lake which is surrounded by greenbelts in the front of the west section of this neighborhood; hike and bike trails; parks, and playgrounds for the kids; wildlife observation section which is a natural bird habitat. The Katy Rotary club holds its annual Katy Triathlon at Firethorne during the fall.  


There are several new homes still being built in Firethorne. The applicable builders include Coventry, Highland Homes, M/I Homes, Perry, Plantation and Ravenna. If you would like a quick summary discussing the various builders clickhere.

Currently there are approximately 62 homes listed in the HAR MLS system available for purchase in Firethorne with prices ranging from $249,900 for  4 bedroom 2,187 square foot home up to $689,990 for a 6 bedroom 6.296 square foot home.  The median list price is $399,825 for a 3,548 square foot home which equates to $109.10 per sq.ft. with a median of 55 days on the market. There are 42 out of the total of 62 available homes that are new built homes. Prices have risen steadily in Firethorne during 2013.

Families of all ages love the numerous amenities available in Firethorne including resort-style multi-level  swim center, sports fields, Lacrosse Field, 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 opened a brand new elementary school inside Firethorne for school year 2012-2013.  

If you or your family wants to know about Firethorne or any other neighbor in the Katy or surrounding areas contact me at your earliest convenience as I would be happy to take you a on tour of the area.
