Schertz Master Planned Community Selects Homebuilders
Monday April 10th, 2017
Scott Felder Homes, Pulte Homes and CastleRock Communities have been chosen by Freehold Communities as homebuilders for phase one of Homestead, a new master-planned community in the Schertz area. Homestead adheres to Freehold’s signature Vital Communities concept, which encourages healthy living and community engagement. Some healthy living features within the community include:
- More than 88 acres of open space for outdoor living, including an activity center with an open air pavilion, grill stations, sports courts, natural playscape for children, and an adjacent pet park
- Nearly 5 miles of trails of walking and jogging trails, as well as ponds
- State-of-the-art fitness center with innovative fitness equipment and on-site fitness classes
- Resort-style pool and splash pad for children
There will be a full-time, dedicated lifestyle director who will plan ongoing community social events. Additionally, Homestead will have direct access to a Schertz public park. Prices will begin in the $200s. The Schertz/Cibolo area has been the scene of much residential and commercial development over the last 15 years or so. “Homestead’s architectural style is centered on family, community and a respect for the land,” said Suzanne Maddalon, vice president of marketing for Freehold Communities, in a news release, “Homestead boasts one of the highest elevations in Guadalupe County, and with our builder teams now established, we plan to embrace Vital Communities principles with architectural cues from farms and homesteads of a much simpler time.” Infrastructure and model homes for Phase I are anticipated to be completed by late this summer.
