Primarily built since 2007, most of the 1200+ homes (approx.) in this neighborhood are Traditional in style. On average, these homes are two-story homes with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and over 3000sf with 2-car garages.

This eco-friendly neighborhood has native trees and grasses (unmowed areas) and natural habitats for Texas birds and wildlife including a 50-acre “polishing pond.” There are 28+ miles of hike/bike trails (see map) winding through the neighborhood’s “tall grass” areas and lakes. Waterfront homes are available in the neighborhood and new construction homes are still being built!

Cross Creek Ranch has a “small town”atmosphere and features a community clubhouse with a 70- foot observation tower that provides 360 degree views of the area. Next to the community clubhouse there is a neighborhood café and a 6,000sf fitness center, plus a large swimming pool and waterpark featuring a 40-foot high hill with a water slide. There is another swimming pool in the neighborhood, plus multiple playgrounds, tennis courts, volley ball court, a disc park, and dog park.

Cross Creek Ranch truly has a “community feel” with frequent events for residents so they can get to know one another and create memories. Past events have included:

  • Movie on The Hill
  • Music on the Patio (Fridays at the Italian Maid Café 5-6 p.m.)
  • Summer Family Luau
  • Texans Watch Parties

Property Taxes

Unfortunately, property taxes in Texas are among the highest in the country. But before you panic, just remember that we don’t have a state income tax in Texas…so one sort of offsets the other. You can read more about Texas property taxes so you are well-informed.

Property taxes in this neighborhood may vary slightly, but are approximately 3.3-3.6 as of March 2020.

One thing I like to point out though…our newer homes tend to be much more energy-efficient than our older homes; so you will save money in energy costs when you buy a newer home. That may help partially offset the higher taxes.

There are tax benefits and other benefits in owning your own home (which can make up for the high property taxes). Please read The Benefits of Home Ownership to learn more.
