Empire Communities is starting pre-sales in The Reserve at Spring Lakes, introducing its premier series of homes.

Empire is offering six estate floor plans designed for 1+-acre homesites in the gated acreage community located in Tomball. Pricing begins in the low $500,000s.

“This series of floor plans offer elegant designs that take advantage of the large homesites,” said James Miller, Division President of Empire’s Texas Homebuilding Division. “We have a one-story home that is more than 4,100 square feet. And all of the floor plans feature large open living areas, luxurious master suites spacious secondary bedrooms, plenty of storage spaces and numerous entertainment areas so our future homeowners can enjoy life both indoors and outdoors.”

The six designs range from 3,900 to more than 4,800 square feet. Special features include libraries, double-island kitchens, a children’s study, courtyard and more.

Empire offers homes in four other Houston-area communities: Fairway Farms in Tomball, Woodforest in Montgomery, Hidden Lakes in League City and Dellrose located in Cypress.

“We are proud to offer a unique range of products and prices for Houston homebuyers to accommodate every stage and every age of life,” Miller said. “We want to grow with our buyers and always make sure that we offer thoughtful designs with our buyers in mind regardless of whether they decide to buy an Empire home that’s in the low $200,000s or over half a million. And all of the home collections are very different in each community. We have dynamic, flexible floor plans designed for 40-foot, 50-foot, 60-foot, 70-foot and now 1-acre homesites. That’s quite a range.”

Later this month, Miller said he expects to start sales in another Houston-area community, Balmoral, with designs starting in the low $200,000s for a new series of 40-foot properties.

“This really demonstrates the breadth of our capabilities,” he said. “When Empire entered the United States in 2016, we wanted to offer the full scope of home designs and quality that has made Empire one of the most popular builders in Canada. The building program we are rolling out in Houston does just that. Empire has strength, longevity and an impeccable reputation — and that’s more and more apparent as we grow our footprint in Houston.”

Model home construction in The Reserve at Spring Lakes, located near the Grand Parkway and Highway 249, is well underway. The model is expected to open late June.
