Ashton Woods Debuts Townhomes, Cottage Designs in Towne Lake

Ashton Woods Homes is expanding its array of communities and home designs, introducing cottages and townhomes in the popular development of Towne Lake.

Ashton Woods’ cottage series features 10 elegantly styled home designs. Priced from the $320,000s, the floor plans offer three and four bedrooms and up to nearly 3,100 square feet of living space. The open-concept designs provide ample storage, multiple outdoor spaces, extended island kitchens and functional features such as a built-in desk, mud rooms with a valet area and oversized utility rooms. Elevation choices offer a pleasing mix of stone, stucco and brick with wood accents.

Quick home buyers will have first selection of choice properties, many of which border one of the numerous waterways for which the community is known. Other properties are served by rear alleyways and face greenbelt and recreation areas.

Ashton Woods’ first townhome designs to be offered in the Houston area feature multi-level plans with open, second-story living areas, third-floor master suites with lofts or extra bedrooms and flexible spaces on the ground floor that could be used as guest suites, exercise studios, media rooms or more. Numerous options allow buyers to customize their homes with a fourth floor dedicated to entertainment, additional bedrooms, a private study or rooftop terrace. Homes also are designed for optional elevators for added convenience.

The builder is offering six townhome designs in Towne Lake, ranging from 1,982 to 2,497 square feet. Pricing is from the $260,000s.

“Our townhomes and cottage homes have been very popular in other parts of the nation, and we are excited about the opportunity a community like Towne Lake provides to introduce something other than traditional floor plans,” said Dan Gezella, vice president of sales and marketing for Ashton Woods.

Located in Cypress, Towne Lake is built around a 300-acre lake, the fourth largest private recreational lake in the Greater Houston area. Community amenities such as boat ramps and a marina and boardwalk — scheduled to open this spring — allow residents to enjoy lakeside living. Residents also enjoy pools, splash parks, fitness centers, an amphitheater and The Lakehouse, Towne Lake’s newest amenity center that features a demonstration kitchen, fitness center, banquet venue for up to 200 guests, a pool with water slides and a lazy river.
