Master-plannedRiverstone is adding Texas-based Emerald Homes to its extensive line-up of community builders.
The luxury division of DR Horton, Inc., will offer a series of high-end patio homes in the Fort Bend community’s new “Villas at Riverstone” neighborhood.
Design details have yet to be released, but pricing is expected to start in the $390,000s for a 2,450-square-foot home in the 10-acre section along University Boulevard. Homes will have a Sugar Land address.
Riverstone continues to rank as Houston’s most active master-planned community, according to data published by Metrostudy.
The housing consultant firm ranked Houston’s top 25 developments based on the number of houses builders started in 2015. Riverstone started 692 houses last year – 200 more than the No. 2 development. This is the third year in a row that the Fort Bend community has landed the No. 1 spot.
Newmark Homes has opened a new model home in the Pebble Creek neighborhood of popular Riverstone, rated as Texas’ best-selling community.
Approximately 30 homes have sold in the neighborhood since sales started there earlier this year, nearly half of the 71 homes that will be built in the neighborhood.
Recently released rankings of Houston schools once again indicate that Riverstone is a smart choice for parents, with the Fort Bend development served by several of the top-rated schools in the greater Houston area and the state.
Registration is now open for a series of comic booked-themed Kidventure day camps that will be held in Fort Bend’s Riverstone June 6 through Aug. 12.
Summer Quest 2016 is the theme of this year’s camps, which will allow children, ages 6 to 12, to activate their inner superheroes through a range of pursuits designed to keep children’s minds and bodies moving. The camps are open to the public.
The public will have their finer sensibilities served during Houston’s Swankiest Crawfish Boil, Saturday, April 23, in Riverstone.
Set for noon to 4 p.m. at The Club at Riverstone, 18353 S. University Boulevard, the event will feature 5,000 pounds of free Creole-spiced crawfish with sweet summer corn, savory potatoes and seasoned smoked beef sausage. An assortment of wines and craft beers available for purchase from No Label Brewery, St. Arnold Brewery and Karbach Brewery will complement the tasty fare, as will black linen-clad tables adorned with flowers.
Fort Bend master-planned community Riverstone has hired Solomon Delaney as the community’s new assistant lifestyle director.
The southeast Texas native assumed the post in March and is already liaising with residents who are planning events at the community’s 8,000-square-foot clubhouse in The Club at Riverstone recreation complex.
“I love it here at Riverstone,” Delaney said. “It's way more than I expected. From the residents to the co-workers, they have all welcomed me with open arms.”
Already one of Fort Bend’s largest dedicated dog spaces, Riverstone’s Bark Park just received a big addition — one that weighs about 500 pounds.
Riverstone residents are cleaning out their closets and bargain hunters will be the beneficiaries, during the community’s semi-annual garage sale 8-11 a.m. Saturday, March 5.
The sale takes place at the Creekstone Village Recreation Center, 5438 Creekstone Village Drive in Sugar Land. More than 75 families are expected to participate, offering gently used household goods, books, toys and clothing for bargain-basement prices.
