The Benefits of Master-Planned Communities

While many of our prospective home buyers have also been excited at the possibility of obtaining high-quality, affordable homes in this stellar location, some have asked us, “What makes a master-planned community so special?” Today, we’re going to answer that question—along with some you may not even have thought of yet—and try to show you how a master-planned community isn’t just a good choice; it’s a great one.

What is a master-planned community?
A master-planned community like Sterling Lakes is a self-sufficient entity, focused not just on residences, but also on the host of auxiliary services that a thriving community requires. In the case of Sterling Lakes, residents will enjoy an exceptional location (located on Highway 288, and just south of Highway 6) along with leisure and recreational amenities built with family needs and modern lifestyles in mind.

What sort of amenities will Sterling Lakes provide?
Part of what makes us here at LGI Homes so excited about working within Sterling Lakes are the exceptional and attractive amenities that have been included in the area’s plan. From the $2.5 million Recreation Center Complex, to the walking trails and lakes, to the convenient bundled services (such as cable and internet) available to residents at low prices, and the safety and comfort of a fully guard-gated community. Sterling Lakes has tuned itself to what residents want, and left no detail outstanding in its effort to meet every need and desire.

Is Sterling Lakes really that much different than an existing community?
The answer to this one is both yes, and no. The beauty of a master-planned community is that it isn’t subject to years of whim and waiver by builders, residents, and local government. By being designed as a whole, the community follows a logical, comfortable plan that serves common purposes as well as individual comforts. While there are many existing communities that have grown organically into functional, pleasant places to live, we believe that master-planned communities like Sterling Lakes have an edge; at Sterling Lakes, residents are able to enjoy the benefits of owning beautiful brand-new homes, while luxuriating in the comforts, convenience, and sense of neighborhood that a fully-developed neighborhood can bring.

So how can I find out more about LGI Homes’ offerings in Sterling Lakes?
We’re glad you asked! LGI Homes is proud to offer six different floor plans in Sterling Lakes, ranging from 3-5 bedrooms. Best of all, prices to live in this community start at just $679 per month. You can find out more about Sterling Lakes in general—and LGI Homes’ houses there in particular— on our website.

Evaluating Floor Plans: What Makes it Right for You?

Evaluate Floor Plans

When you begin your search for a house in a new home community, you may be wondering how best to evaluate a floor plan that a builder offers. In many of its communities, LGI Homes offers a number of flexible and modern floor plans, sometimes as many as six—how do you choose which one is right for you?

One of your first considerations should be space. In particular, how many bedrooms are right for you and your household? In the master-planned community of Sterling Lakes, LGI Homes offers a range of home sizes, from 3 – 5 bedrooms. Our most popular layout, with three bedrooms, can be found in three of our five models. Beyond sleeping space, remember that bedrooms can also serve a variety of functions: office, playroom, hobby room or library. A bedroom is a place where respite of all forms takes place, so take your relaxation and lifestyle into account when counting up bedrooms, too!

Next, you will want to consider how the bedrooms are arranged. Separated sleeping areas are flexible and comfortable, maximizing the privacy of each bedroom. In our single-story residences such as the Blanco and the Sabine (offered in a number of different LGI Homes communities), a split layout keeps the Master Bedroom in the back of the home, and places the two accessory rooms towards the front of the house. In both of these floor plans, the Master Bedroom enjoys proximity to the fully-fenced backyard, and is situated away from the noise of the street.

In our two-story homes, such as the San Marcos at Deer Creek in Fort Worth, the sleeping quarters are comfortably removed from the daily living areas and are located upstairs from the family room, dining room and kitchen. Removing the sleeping areas to the upstairs of the house means that the privacy of the bedrooms never has to be impeded by the more public areas of the home.

In the course of choosing a floor plan, you’ll also want to consider the traffic patterns, or flow of the home. How does the layout work for you and your lifestyle? For instance, are you looking for a kitchen that opens into a family room, such as in the Blanco? This sort of layout is great for younger families, where activities such as homework or play can occur alongside with meal preparation. Or perhaps you are an inveterate entertainer. In that case, you may prefer a layout such as that of the Driftwood, in which the kitchen is more proximate to the dining room. Are you somewhere in-between? The Colorado, with its open access to both the dining and family room may be the perfect choice.

Whichever way your family likes to live, we here at LGI Homes have created modern, functional floor plans that are right for you, and that are available now in communities across Texas.
