Grand Lakes Katy TX focus neighborhood for June 28, 2012


Grand Lakes Katy TX focus neighborhood for June 28, 2012 is a Katy real estate community. Grand Lakes was developed by Trendmaker and homes started being built in the first section back in 1998. There are no more brand new homes in Grand Lakes as the neighborhood is entirely built out and has been for probably at least 3-4 years.  This is my fifth blog in a series of seven blogs or more covering various neighborhoods in the Katy or surrounding areas.


Grand Lakes is made up of single family homes and some patio homes. There are no condos or townhouses in Grand Lakes. The neighborhood is located both on the east side of Highway 99 or Grand Parkway at Fry Road and on the west side of 99 at Fry Road. Grand Lakes encompasses approximately 1,250 acres with numerous cul-de-sac streets which helps to cut down on drive through traffic. It is estimated that over 20 % of the total acres of land is devoted to parks, hike and bike trails, manmade lakes and several recreational facilities.

Builders who built this neighborhood include Trendmaker, Ashton Woods, Newmark, Coventry, Perry and David Powers. Homes range in size from approximately 1,600 square feet up to approximately 6,000 square feet. The basic concept was to build an old fashioned family community where everyone could feel at home when being home. Right now there are 55 homes for sale in Grand Lakes with prices starting at $180, 000 for 1,563 square foot home up to $579,900 for 4,788 square feet. The median list price is $339,900 and the median days on the market are 53 says.


As the name suggests Grand Lakes has 27 man-made lakes and some are stocked with fish. The community has a catch and release policy on all fishing activities. There are several area pools including a swim team pool. Grand Lakes has a putting green, tennis courts, community center, dog park, formal park, many miles of bike and hiking trails, and kids splash pad.


The community is zoned to Katy ISD schools and all of these are excellent schools.


I live in Grand Lakes and we were one of the first occupied homes in section 1 back in 1999. There is a special feel or ambience associated with living this neighborhood. We love to walk all the trails that exist on the east side of highway 99. It is very easy to get from one section to another via the numerous trails. The area is friendly and the sights along the way are very appealing.
