Grand Lakes is one of the more established of the master-planned communities. Having said this, Newmark Homes is beginning a new section of construction in Grand Lakes just north of the Westpark Tollway along Peek Rd. So, with this newest section, Grand Lakes offers some old and some new for buyers in the Katy market to consider.
Grand Lakes is a Katy, Texas master-planned community nestled within a particularly beautiful part of Katy Texas. Grand Lakes is a home development consisting of condominiums, townhouses and single family homes. Displaying a wealth of old style community charm, while maintaining easy access to the Westpark Tollway and Interstate 10, Grand Lakes offers residents both comfort and convenience. As a past winner of the best large community award, granted by the NAHB Best of American Living Competition, Grand Lakes has established a reputation as a top class Katy real estate development.
True to it's name Grand Lakes offers beautiful lakes, walking trails, tennis courts and pools. Grand Lakes, being a master-planned community, offers shopping, restaurants, and other amenities all very close to any of the development. The development group, consisting of Trendmaker Homes, Perry Homes, David Powers and Ashton Woods, have made a great effort in an attempt to achieve a peaceful setting, while maintaining a functional community. Traffic through individual Katy neighborhoods is significantly reduced by utilizing many cul-de-sacs, and great care has been taken to ensure that neither privacy nor access has been compromised. The overall concept is of building a tranquil, family focused, old style community, while incorporating modern requirements for a streamlined and productive lifestyle.
Grand Lakes does have an HOA. The fee assessed to all residents ranges from about $1000-$1150. This fee helps cover maintenance and upkeep of the common grounds and amenities throughout the Grand Lakes community. In addition, Grand Lakes has a number of recreational areas like walking trails and swimming pools that are open to all Grand Lakes residents. You will always have a place to enjoy the outdoors and cool off during Katy’s hot summer months. Learn more about Grand Lakes swimming pools and recreation centers in the Amenities section of this page.
By incorporating all of these small town features, such as peaceful streets and neighborhoods, crystal clear lakes and leafy walks, Grand Lakes holds an ambiance that is hard to find in the modern world. Possibly the most remarkable thing to have been achieved, is the simple ease of living that has been incorporated into the development, alongside the obvious charm. Far more than a attractive community space, Grand Lakes is also designed for 21st century living, and spares no effort in creating a synergy between aesthetics and functionality. It is a good place to live, a good place to work and a good place to relax, all provided in a single, well priced package of Katy real estate. If you are considering a move to Katy, then you will definitely want to take a good look at Grand Lakes.
