The Garden Oaks and Oak Forest area has another new community in its midst.
National homebuilder Lennar Homes recently opened a community coined Chapel Heights on a 1.6-acre site at 707 Embercove Dr. near the intersection of North Shepherd Drive and Pinemont Drive. A grand opening is scheduled for 10 a.m.-noon Saturday.
“Being close to Garden Oaks, the Heights and fairly close to the Galleria and downtown Houston is really what most of our buyers are looking for out there,” said Michael Reamer, Lennar’s vice president of sales.
The 18-townhome community features homes similar to those in nearby Neumann Oaks, four of which are at or near completion and immediate move-in stage, according to Reamer. Amenities in each home include a living room, dining area and kitchen on the first floor, along with a walk-in utility room, loft space, master suite, two secondary bedrooms and a full bathroom on the second level.
There will also be a two-car garage and backyard for each townhome, which has prices beginning in the $330,000 range according to a report from the Houston Business Journal. Reamer said there is also a lake area in front of the community that will greet those entering Chapel Heights, along with a trail system running through the community.
