Lennar and Meritage Homes have just opened decorated models in Falls at Green Meadows, located across the street from Katy City Park in the heart of the historic Katy.
The site of the former Green Meadows Golf Course, Falls at Green Meadows is now offering new homes priced from the $300,000s, amenities that include lakes, parks, greenbelt trails and a central recreation center; and a location that is minutes from Interstate 10, the Energy Corridor and the Grand Parkway.

“There has been a lot of interest in this community since it was first announced,” said Christine Draughn, Marketing Director for Falls at Green Meadows. “We are seeing people who are from the Katy area as well as those who are relocating to Houston and love the location, access to great schools and convenience to major employment centers.”

Enhancing the scenic surrounds and convenience to major roadways, and key employment, medical and retail centers, Falls at Green Meadows benefits from a location in the Katy Independent School District and is served by Katy Elementary, Katy Junior High and Katy High schools.

Now open are new decorated models by Lennar and Meritage Homes – each offering visitors a preview of the design innovation and impressive features that are offered by both of these well-known builders.

Meritage Homes’ new Colonnade model is highlighted by soaring ceilings, open living areas and appears much larger than its 3,448 square feet.

A spacious two-story foyer has access to a formal dining room with a unique stone wall and views of the front porch, and a large living room that is showcased as a study. The foyer also has views of the open staircase and the second floor which is divided by a bridge surrounded by a continuous railing of wood and iron. The split staircase provides access to the second floor from the foyer and the kitchen area.

An oversized island includes a sink, ample work space and breakfast bar seating and is open to the breakfast area and two-story family room that has a stone fireplace. Located off the family room is the private master suite that features a sitting area and elegant bath that includes a room-size closet.

The second floor is divided into two separate wings and includes a game room and bedroom on one side and two additional bedrooms on the opposite side. The three-car tandem garage in this floor plan provides for additional options that include a media room or fifth bedroom and fourth bath. Meritage Homes is offering nine one- and two-story floor plans that are priced from the $313,990 and range in size from 2,705 to 4,254 square feet.

Next door is Lennar’s two-story Sapphire model, one of the designs from builder’s Texas Reserve Collection which is priced from the $330,000s. A total of 10 one- and two-story designs are offered in the Texas Reserve Collection which range in size from 2,753 to more than 3,800 square feet.

The elegantly appointed Sapphire model has more than 3,500 square feet, five bedrooms and 3 ½ baths.
The model welcomes visitors with a grand two-story foyer which is open to the formal dining room and study and has views of an overlooking bridge/walkway enhanced by a wood and wrought iron railing.

The two-story family room has a wall of windows, an open staircase adorned with wood and iron, is open to the spacious kitchen. The kitchen features an oversized island that provides breakfast bar seating on one side and a sink and work space on the other. Additional highlights in the kitchen include a breakfast area and a butler’s pantry complete with a serving bar, storage and glass front cabinets and wine storage.

Upstairs, the model has a game room that features a “chalk board wall,” and the home’s optional step-up media room with theater style seating. Located across from the game room is a bedroom suite with a full bath.

A bridge/catwalk that overlooks the foyer and the family room lead to the opposite wing of the second floor, where a Lego style room and a Katy High School football-themed room share a Hollywood style bath.

Both model homes and sales offices are now open daily, where visitors can find more information on available homes, schools and the surrounding Katy area.
