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.
