Who — or maybe what — was Ike and why does his tree get a namesake street in the Augusta Creek Pointe neighborhood in Spring? Sure, there was the notable hurricane by that name, but Ikes Tree Dr., which slices through the semi-shaded 64-lot section of The Creeks at Augusta Pines golf course community east of Kuykendahl Rd. and north of FM 2920, was in place by the beginning of 2008. The semi-custom, non-gated neighborhood’s model home, built by J. Kyle Homes in 2011, went onto the market this summer with a $409,563 asking price.
A spring listing this year with a different agency priced the home $5K higher — and then, for a few days in May, $5K lower than its current price, before settling on the most recent number. The home has never been lived in; its current staging identifies the floor plan and flow.

Even with an outdoor hearth and kitchen (above) and 3-car garage, the (almost) quarter-of-an-acre property leaves lots of lawn (and a little landscaping) out back — but no trees (Ike’s or otherwise):
