Show Us Your Home for the Holidays in Katy TX
Debbie Laity who is a Broker Associate with Cedaredge Land Co. in Western Colorado created a December 2016 Active Rain Challenge to show your Home for the Holidays. I will show everyone some of the homes with decorations in Grand Lakes Katy TX where we live. As our children are not living at home any more we do not decorate the outside of our home anymore due to time constraints.
First I need to tell everyone a few things about this neighborhood. Grand Lakes located in Katy TX is a community with over 2,200 single family homes with varying different styles and floorplans. Grand Lakes is a family oriented and pet friendly neighborhood. Grand Lakes was developed by Trendmaker and the first section homes homes were being built back in 1998. There are no more brand new homes in Grand Lakes as the neighborhood is entirely built out and has been for at least 8 years. The neighborhood has a very strong Homeowners Association and looks great all the time. The HOA can be a pain but their close control helps to keep property values from falling and the whole area looking very appealing to all who view the neighborhood.
Grand Lakes is made up of single family one story and numerous two story homes and some patio homes. There are no condos or townhomes in Grand Lakes as reported by some other agents. The neighborhood is located both on the east side of Highway 99 or Grand Parkway at Fry Road and on the west side of 99 at Fry Road. Grand Lakes encompasses approximately 1,250 acres with numerous cul-de-sac streets. These streets help to cut down on drive through traffic in the neighborhood. Grand Lakes is a family neighborhood loaded with children of all ages.
It is estimated that over 20 % of the total acres of land is devoted to parks, hike and bike trails, man made lakes and several recreational facilities.
Below are pictures of some of the homes decorated for the holidays.
This tree is inside our home and Yolanda spent time carefully decorating it.
Some folks in Grand Lakes hire third parties to come out and decorate the outside of their home. We have always resisted this urge.
