Southland Homes of Texas builds custom residences for those who want the best in the design and construction of their new home. We focus our attention on sections of greater Houston that offer not only the lot size and location you want when you build, but also the amenities that make your community everything it should be so that it enhances your lifestyle. A particular lot, or a particular street, may appear perfect for your custom home, but without nearby shopping areas, parks, schools and available public services, it simply may not work for you and your family.
How to Choose a Location?
When looking at potential locations for your new home, it is always helpful to have the assistance of someone who specializes in residential real estate to guide you through the process. At Southland, as part of our all-inclusive process, we have a licensed real estate broker on staff who is well-acquainted with the various areas in an around Houston, including the amenities, geography, demographics and services (including schools) available in each. This is particularly important in an area as varied as Houston.
The choice of a location for your home is a personal decision that will be a function of a number of factors. Perhaps you are concerned with the quality and availability of the public schools. Others may consider outdoor space or nearby shopping to be a significant determinant. Still others may be looking to be near a corporate headquarters. Our licensed broker has the experience and expertise to present you with all the information you need to make your choice the right one. As an added benefit, you may be able to save thousands of dollars on broker’s fees when you choose Southland as your custom home builder. We call this a “win-win” situation.
The Woodlands offers unlimited possibilities to those thinking of building an upscale custom home in the greater Houston area. With its neighborhood feel, green space and available shopping, parks and forested paths, it represents the best in suburban planning and design.
Located about 30 miles north of Houston, Woodlands is one of the country’s first master-planned communities. It began as a suburban development, but has grown substantially in recent years. The Woodlands is now home to over 90,000 residents, and the area serves as the corporate headquarters for a number of corporations, including some of the larger energy companies in the world. Access to Houston is available by car via Interstate 45 and the Hardy Toll Road, as well as by bus from any of several park and ride lots.
The Woodlands consists of a number of villages, districts and neighborhoods, including:
- Cochran’s Crossing;
- East Shore;
- Alden Bridge;
- Indian Springs;
- Sterling Ridge;
- Carlton Woods;
- College Park;
- Creekside Park;
- Grogan’s Mill; and
- Panther Creek.
Each of the villages has its shopping area, including a grocery store, along with other services such as banks and gas stations. In addition to the villages, there is the area known as Town Center, which is largely commercial, and which includes a convention center, a number of hotels, as well as the Woodlands Mall. The Woodlands is home to two movie theaters and over 100 restaurants.
The homes in The Woodlands range from urban-style lofts and townhouses to large homes, estates, and even a gated community. There are also golf course and lakeside homes. A major attraction of this Houston suburb, much of which is attributable to its meticulous planning, is over 6,000 acres of green space, over 100 parks, and seven golf courses. The area is heavily forested, and the neighborhoods have tended to retain the trees both for shading and aesthetics. For over 35 years, The Woodlands has received award after award recognizing its success as a community. The areas covered by these awards include, among others, environmental practices, architectural design, office projects, landscape design, parks and recreation facilities, preservation, and forestry.
