Woodforest Taps Highland Homes for New Gated Enclave

Highland Homes is expanding its presence in master-planned Woodforest, starting presales in a new neighborhood, Russet Peak.

Highland Homes is offering homes ranging from 1,800 to 3,500 square feet in Russet Peak, a gated neighborhood of 32 wooded homesites. Pricing for the neighborhood starts in the $260,000s.

“Russet Peak offers buyers ample value,” said Virgil Yoakum, general manager of Woodforest. “Highland Homes offers highly amenitized, elegant designs and the gates will help minimize traffic throughout the neighborhood. Plus, the Forest Island recreation complex is nearby.”

Until now, recent development within Woodforest has been concentrated in the community’s South District, where nine new model homes have opened this year. Russet Peak, centrally located within the master plan near the active adult village of Bonterra at Woodforest, signals the expansion farther north within the development.

Woodforest also recently announced the start of construction within another new neighborhood, Kingsley, located near Fish Creek Thoroughfare across from the Woodforest Homefinder Lodge. Kingsley will feature Southern-styled homes from Gracepoint Homes and Wendell Legacy Homes.

Highland Homes is one of Woodforest’s earliest builders, offering homes in the community since 2009. Employee-owned Highland Homes was founded in 1985 and today builds in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.

Highland Homes is one of 22 builders offering designs priced from the $190,000s to the millions in Woodforest. Learn more at www.woodforesttx.com.
