Two New Builders Announced for Sienna Plantation’s Village of Sawmill Lake

 MISSOURI CITY, TX (March 2, 2015) – Shea Homes, which recently entered the Texas market, will make its Fort Bend County debut this spring in the Village of Sawmill Lake, Sienna Plantation’s newest village.  Joining Shea Homes in Sienna for the first time is Westin Homes, another award-winning builder, who is very active in several Johnson Development communities throughout the Houston area.

Shea Homes, the nation’s second-largest privately owned home builder, will open a new model home in April and offer new homes on 35 home sites starting in the high $300’s. “We’re thrilled to make Village of Sawmill Lake our first Fort Bend community,” said Keith Luechtefeld, division president for Shea Homes Houston. “Sienna Plantation has been synonymous with quality and we’re certainly looking forward to carrying on that tradition.”

            Luechtefeld adds Shea Homes will offer 14, two-story plans on 65’ home sites with three elevation options – Hill Country, Texas Traditional and Tuscan – and several builder options new to the market. 

            Shea Homes’ buyers can choose from optional features new to the market including stackable sliding glass panels, which open the spacious great room and dining space into a gorgeous, wrap-around porch with serving bar creating continuous indoor and outdoor entertainment space. 

            Another newcomer to Sienna Plantation, longtime Houston-area builder Westin Homes, has built sophisticated, high-quality luxury homes in some of Houston’s most desirable communities since 1994. 

Westin Homes will offer new homes on 60-foot home sites along with Meritage Homes; both opening new model homes this spring.           

“We are delighted to be among the select group of home builders invited to participate in the next phase of Sienna Plantation, one of the finest and most successful master-planned communities in Texas,” says Kyle Davison, division president, Westin Homes.

            Davison adds Westin Homes will offer floor plans from 2,000 – 3,600 square feet priced in the mid-to-upper $300’s.  

            “Our interest list for prospective buyers is growing by the day,” he adds.

Named after the historic sawmills which operated on the property in the mid 1800’s, the Village of Sawmill Lake will offer 500 home sites along with a new Fort Bend ISD elementary and middle school scheduled to open in 2017.  A new amenity center is planned to open in 2016 along the banks of Sawmill Lake in the northeast corner of the village.
