Katy Real Estate News - Grayson Lakes
By Katy Realtor - Tim Sojka (shop for a home online at www.Search-Katy-Homes.com )
There are certain days in life that are just better than others. You get up a little early for some reason, but you feel rested and ready to go. You stretch and step outside to a beautiful crisp clear morning. You can think clearly and your day is unravels before you like a beautiful adventure. The prickly, tangent feeling of excitement pulses through your veins, the hair rises on the back of your neck and your spirit brightens. For some reason you just know today is going to be a little better than most.
Not surprisingly, these days seem to occur much for frequently when you are on vacation or in a relaxed state of mind. The redundant task of the work week can engulf you and drag you down. So maybe, just maybe, if everyday had just a touch of vacation in it, we could have more days that unraveled before us like an adventure.
Just a touch of vacation, is exactly what many people think of when they think of the beautiful west Katy community of Grayson Lakes. Many of the best memories that fill our heads are of trips to the beach, splashing in a lake or even floating down a river. Grayson Lake's slogan is Life's Better on the Water, and the community defiantly lives up to the slogan. Water seems to be the heart and soul of the community. Over thirty acres of lakes highlight the community and most neighborhood amenities border the lakes including trails and the community center.
Grayson Lakes was developed Newland, the team behind some of the most respected communities in the country. So needless to say the smallest details of Grayson Lakes are well planned and well executed. Large lots are a trademark of the community with some homes sitting on lots over 100' feet wide.
The neighborhood is located close to Katy Mills Mall and is just moments from Interstate 10 and 99. Even though the neighborhood is near to shopping and dining, when within the confines of Grayson Lakes, the residents talk of feeling a million miles away from the stress of their jobs
Grayson Lake Residents Noel and Vanessa Serrano put it best, "To look out in your own backyard and seeing kids fishing and sail boats floating, by is just priceless. Grayson Lakes is truly unique and we feel that it is one of Katy's best kept secrets. It has all the amenities that a homeowner everything could ever hope for, highly acclaimed schools (KISD), beautiful waterfront community, close-knit neighbors and a sense of security, so much so that you can even see children selling lemonade on a corner streets."
Vanessa and Noel add, "An additional bonus is that Grayson Lakes has one of the lowest tax rate in the Katy area. We feel like we're on vacation everyday and millions of miles away from the hustle and bustle of the big city!"
Over the last 12 months home sales have ranged from over $200,000 to almost $625,000 depending on size and location. The lakefront homes of course are generally higher in price than non-lakefront homes. Still no matter where the home is located of the neighbors have the opportunity to enjoy the best of the community.
Each weekend you will find children and adults peddling through the streets on their bikes, playing in the parks or taking advantage of the lakes in paddle boats or canoes.
If you are a homeowner considering a move, or a new Katy transplant you might try a short drive into Grayson Lakes and see if the prickly, tangent feeling of excitement pulses through your veins, if the hair rises on the back of your neck and if your spirit brightens. Is so, you know clearly that most days may unravel before you like a beautiful adventure.
Price per square foot ranges between $80 and $150 per square foot.
