Grand lakes Katy Homes for Sale August 19,2013

Grand Lakes Katy TX  is a Katy real estate community with single family homes and now with a Commercial Center in front of the East of Highway 99 section. Grand Lakes was developed by Trendmaker and homes were being built in the first section back in 1998. We bought one of the first homes sold in Grand Lakes.There are no more new built homes in Grand Lakes as the neighborhood is entirely built out and has been for probably at least 4-5 years. The neighborhood has a very strong Homeowners Association and looks great all the time.  If you want to speak to someone call Planned Community Management 281-870-0585 as I have recently had several inquiries for a phone number.

Grand Lakes is made up of single family one story and numerous two story homes and some patio homes. There are no condos or townhouses in Grand Lakes as reported by other agents who obviously do not live in Grand Lakes or this whole area. 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. These streets help to cut down on drive through traffic in the neighborhood. Grand Lakes is a family neighborhood loaded with children of all ages. 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. It is really fun place to run, walk, ride your bicycle and sit to relax.

Builders who built this neighborhood include Newmark, Trendmaker, Ashton Woods, 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 or driving in the neighborhood. Grand Lakes is another of those communities with a small town feel but located in excellent location to take advantage of everything Katy and Houston offers its residents.  

Right now there are only 23 homes for sale in Grand Lakes with prices starting at 225,000 for 2,141 square feet up to $799,900 for 5,719 square feet. The median list price is $350,000with median square footage of 3,120  and the median days on the market are 17 days. See my most recent market report about available homes in Grand Lakes here.

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 golf 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 but consumers need to do their own school research. Right now children attend Roosevelt Alexander elementary school, Beckendorff Junior High School and Seven Lakes High School. Katy ISD however, due to rapid growth has been changing school boundary lines on a frequent basis. There are no absolute guarantees as which school will be zoned to which Katy neighborhood now and into the future.

Grand Lakes through the year holds several community events for residents to attend.  

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 and sometimes take pictures. I also really like riding my bicycle through the neighborhood  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.

As I had mentioned earlier above, a new Commercial Center located on Fry Road immediately in front of Grand Lakes has added convenient shopping stores including a grocery Whole Foods store and several excellent restaurants. Carrabbas opened in early July and was an instant hit.

I would be very happy to get the opportunity to show you and your family this beautiful neighborhood in Katy Tx. in person and explain why it is such a great place to live.  As I mentioned above I live in Grand Lakes. Simply contact me and let’s get started while interest rates are still low.  Call or text me, Bob Gilbert directly at 281-904-6772 or email me at bobgilbert2003@msn.com or bob@bobgilbert.com.
