Diverse slate of homes, European elegance define Tuscan Lakes

(League City, TX – October 2008)            The physical elegance of Tuscan Lakes allows homeowners to bask in the Italian-inspired beauty of rolling hills, gracefully aged aqueducts and lush landscaping of this masterfully planned League City development. Some of Houston’s most noted builders offer designs in a variety of Tuscan Lakes neighborhoods, where prices start from the $160,000s to $800,000s to meet diverse buyer needs. Production builders include Wilshire Homes, Meritage Homes, Chesmar Homes, Highland Homes, Coventry Homes, Newmark Homes and David Powers Homes. Four of Houston’s premier custom builders — Dan Wallrath Custom Homes, Harbour Classic Builders, Marsters Company and Masterpiece Custom Homes – offer designs from the $800,000s to the millions in Siena, the development’s custom-home community. The gated neighborhood offers homesites secluded on cul-de-sac streets or bordering one of the many lakes found throughout Tuscan Lakes. Planned for 1,850 homes, the 870-acre Tuscan Lakes is dedicating more than 150 acres of open space to enhance its Mediterranean style. Architectural elements reminiscent of the Tuscan region of Italy are integrated into amenities and common areas including an aqueduct at its main entrance, parks, resort-style pools, lakes, nature preserves, water features, greenbelts, walkways and jogging trails. Already open is a Tuscan-flavored recreation center, Cypress Point, with arched arcade fronts, stone accents and tower. The multi-use swimming pool includes a tot pool, lap swimming area and zero-entry area with a spray park. With nearly 5,300 square feet of water play, the pool wraps around a large, circular rise landscaped with Italian cypress trees. The complex also features gathering space anchored by a massive stone fireplace and shaded by an arbor, and a large children’s playground with slides, swings, two age-appropriate climbing structures and rolling terrain for added adventure. Meandering pedestrian walkways link the complex to the community trail system.  Students in Tuscan Lakes attend top schools in two notable school districts, including Clear Creek Independent School District – where nearly half the campuses are rated Exemplary by the Texas Education Agency. Silbernagel Elementary, rated Exemplary by the Texas Education Agency, and Dunbar Middle School, which holds a Recognized rating, are Dickinson ISD campuses serving Tuscan Lakes.
