Some brand-new houses sold by Lennar Homes will be very convenient to the new Grand Parkway!
Robert A. Hudson, a Spring developer who partnered with Lennar on the project, said builders knew the highway might come through the subdivision.
“We are not up there on a daily basis to make sure that the builders make it clear to everybody else,” he said.
Plans for the Grand Parkway have been on the books for 25 years, but only 28 of its proposed 185 miles have been built. Environmental and neighborhood groups have opposed the project.
It would include 11 segments traversing seven counties. The 12.1-mile Segment F2 would cut directly through the Lakes of Avalon Village, a subdivision with several hundred homes located on FM 2920 just west of Kuykendahl Road.
About 60 homes are in the right-of-way and would have to be demolished to make way for the parkway once construction began, [executive director of the Grand Parkway Association David] Gornet said.
Talk about offering transportation options! But it’s not just Lennar . . . J. Patrick Homes also is selling models in the Lakes of Avalon Village subdivision.
But hurry! The subdivision is in “close out”!
After the jump: pics of a Lennar Homes model for sale in this quaint little village in Spring!
The listing for this Lennar Homes Concord model at 7131 Avalon Aqua Way mentions the following amenities:
POOL,TENNIS,CLUBHOUSE,WALKING TRAILS AROUND LAKE,KLEIN SCHOOLS! EZ ACCESS TO 249,
. . . but there’s so much more!
Is this home directly in the path of the Grand Parkway? That’s hard to say. . . . You’d have to match up a map of the Grand Parkway’s Segment F-2 (PDF) with a map of the subdivision. Which is a little hard to do precisely, since the Lakes of Avalon Village is so new that its streets don’t appear even in online maps. Aerial views show empty fields.
But there’s no need to worry about it.
The home is faced with stone in front and brick all the rest of the way around. Great sound insulation . . . and not so easy to demo!
A privacy fence allows you to enjoy peace and quiet in this lovely backyard.
Just imagine you can hear the soothing sounds of rushing water as you soak in this relaxing whirlpool tub.
