New neighborhoods are sprouting up in Harvest Green as the community prepares to release 254 homesites in response to record-breaking home sales.
The Fort Bend community will release the first 71 homesites in May with an additional 183 to follow in the summer. The new neighborhoods will feature 50-, 60- and 65-foot properties.
The release is in response to a 46 percent increase in Harvest Green home sales this year, with 98 homes sold during the first quarter of 2017.
“The continued success of our community has been gratifying,” said Shay Shafie general manager of Harvest Green. “From the beginning we have offered prospective buyers something unique — the opportunity to be part of a community with a lifestyle that encourages health and sustainability — and the response has been overwhelming.”
Homes sales in the unique community, which is centered on a working farm, have always been strong. Builders sold 85 homes within three months of beginning presales when Harvest Green opened nearly two years ago. An additional 262 properties were released when the community was less than a year old.
Eleven builders offer homes in Harvest Green with designs priced from the $240,000s. Builders include D.R. Horton, Darling Homes, David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes, Lennar, Meritage Homes, Newmark Homes, Perry Homes, Plantation Homes, Trendmaker Homes and Westin Homes.
In addition to opening up new neighborhoods, Harvest Green is putting the finishing touches on its suite of amenities including The Farmhouse, a recreation center featuring a pool, fitness center, splash pad, event lawn, playground and lakeside amphitheater.
Residents also enjoy a weekly on-site farmers market and a community service agriculture program by Loam Agronomics that delivers farm-fresh produce to their doors. A new school, James C. Neill Elementary, will join on-site Bowie Middle School and Travis High School in August.
