Traditional Neighborhood Development Features Historic Architecture, Modern Floor Plans
CYPRESS, TX (April 14, 2015) - Bridgeland is showcasing new models and homesites in Lakeland Heights, a walkable, Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) where Main Street-style housing blends with shops, parks, restaurants and services, all following guidelines meticulously crafted by architectural powerhouse Looney Ricks Kiss (LRK).
From April 18 to May 3, the public is invited to take part in a ‘Walk-a-bout Spring Home Tour’ in Lakeland Heights. By touring all four models located in the TND section, participants will be entered to win a $2,500 gift card. Additionally, those who purchase during the promotional period can choose one of three incentives from the home builder – no closing costs, a Best Buy gift card or design center upgrades – all of which are valued at $3,500.
Defining elements of Lakeland Heights include its close proximity to Lakeland Village Center, Bridgeland’s first commercial area, rear-access garages and abundant green space. A highlight of the unique community is its half-mile waterway, featuring a landmark bridge, trails, creatively landscaped park space and seating areas.
Starting in the $250s, homes in Lakeland Heights are built by David Weekley Homes and J. Kyle Homes, while the area’s townhouse product is constructed by Perry Homes.
“We envisioned Lakeland Heights as a community where you’d see neighbors greet each other from their front porches and meet up at local parks, and we’ve seen that come to fruition since the neighborhood opened in 2010,” said Peter Houghton, Bridgeland’s vice president of master planned communities. “LRK extensively researched traditional Houston neighborhoods, including The Heights, West University Place, Southampton and Southside Place, for architectural inspiration, allowing us to create something that’s completely new to the Cypress area.”
Planned for 350 homes, Lakeland Heights incorporates Craftsman, English Tudor, Classical and French housing styles to heighten curb appeal. Diverse architectural styling that is historical in appearance is a recognizable feature of TNDs.
“Lakeland Heights appears to have evolved over time,” Houghton said.
Homes’ exterior cladding is made-up of brick, stucco or wood. Set behind the homes, garages are accessed via private rear lanes. Streetlights are reminiscent of those in River Oaks and other historic neighborhoods.
Despite the nostalgic architecture, homes will have the modern features today’s buyers expect, such as high ceilings, large closets, media rooms and state-of-the-art kitchens and bathrooms. Additionally, the townhomes in the TND are a part of a new ‘lock-and-leave program’ that includes all yard work and exterior maintenance, allowing for stress-free upkeep.
Many of the homesites face the waterway or a neighborhood park, and schools, churches and the Lakeland Village Center — a market square with shopping, services and dining — will be within walking distance. Also nearby is the Lakeland Activity Center, with an aquatic complex, tennis courts, boating and a 6,000-square-foot community center.
Gathering spots in Lakeland Heights include Festival Park, with a covered pavilion, and Central Park, which includes two acres of green space, an open play area and a formal garden. The three-acre Rabbit Run has active open space and is across the street from the Lakeland Activity Center.
