Tuscan Lakes Celebrates New Name, Awesomeville, With Open Homes Tour

LEAGUE CITY, TX – It’s not often a community is re-named, but that is precisely what has taken place in Tuscan Lakes, the Bay Area’s premier master-planned community, fittingly re-named Awesomeville based largely on the one word residents use to describe their community.

“Tuscan Lakes is awesome,” says resident Rebecca Kimbrell.  “I love getting off work and coming home to a community where families are outside spending quality time together.”

While it’s not an official name change, signs of Awesomeville can be found in local businesses, on ornamental light poles and other prominent spots in the area.  Tuscan Lakes residents also received free Awesomeville stickers for their cars.

Tuscan Lakes will celebrate its new name with an Awesomeville Open Homes Tour, April 13-29, with six model homes including a new model from D.R. Horton.  Families also can tour model homes from Castlerock Builders, D.R. Horton, Harwood Homes, KB Home, Newmark Homes priced from the $140s to the $400s.  A gated community for adults 55+, The Village at Tuscan Lakes, also is open for tour including a model from Pulte Homes. 

Tuscan Lakes’ gated, custom-home community, Siena, offers homes starting in the $600’s from Harbour Classic Builders, Masterpiece Custom Classics and several other custom builders. 

Later this summer, Westin Homes will open a model in Tuscan Lakes with homes from the $230s. 

Besides its collection of outstanding homes and community amenities, Tuscan Lakes is the Bay Area’s only master-planned community with a Lifestyle Director who coordinates a full calendar of fitness programs, family festivals and day excursions. 

“We love the constant involvement of having a lifestyle director,” notes resident Annette Snow Falks.  “We have activities we can participate in everyday or whenever we want.”

Kimbrell recalls the community appeal of the area during her first visits to Tuscan Lakes with her husband Raymond. 

“Every time we visited, we saw families walking around the lake, parents running with a child in a jogging stroller and families riding their bikes together,” she says.  “We felt like this was the place for us, a young couple ready to start a family.”

Tuscan Lakes residents also enjoy community events, hike-and-bike trails, several lakes and the Cypress Point recreation center with a resort-style swimming complex, splash pad water park and a large play area. '

Tiffany Pearce, a Tuscan Lakes resident since 2010, adds, “we enjoy family walks around the lake and our daughter loves to feed the ducks that have made the lake their home.”

Children in Tuscan Lakes attend outstanding public and private schools, just minutes from the community.  Both the Clear Creek and Dickinson Independent School Districts have earned Recognized status from the Texas Education Agency.  Tuscan Lakes also offers a Kiddie Academy onsite childcare learning center with another educational daycare center to open in the coming months.
