“As Houston has evolved, so have our homebuyers,” says Will Holder, president of Trendmaker Homes. “With baby boomers retiring and Texas leading national population growth trends, we see tremendous potential in the second home market… we believe the timing is perfect to launch this new product line that we are branding: Texas Casual Cottages by Trendmaker.”
Trendmaker’s “Model Home Farm” opened June 19 in Round Top, a short drive west of Brenham. The “Farm” is located on Highway 237, across from the Big Red Barn, a well-known antiques center landmark, halfway between 290 and the town of Round Top, Texas.
The new line of high-quality, country-style homes includes a turn-key package of construction and home site preparation services from one source – a reliable and financially secure Texas-based homebuilder. Floorplans range in size from a perfectly-sized guest cottage (450 sq. ft.) to a truly sprawling Texas farm house of 4,500 sq. ft.
These newest homes by Trendmaker are based upon the proven success of Chardonnay Farms Country Cottages, a Texas-based company located in Round Top that was founded by Sandy Reed. “The success of Chardonnay Farms Country Cottages over the past few years gives Trendmaker a great foundation on which to build, and we have been able to make tremendous strides in a very short time frame because of it,” says Holder.
Sandy Reed offers another perspective: “Joining forces with Trendmaker Homes has leveraged our combined experience and expertise and takes advantage of Trendmaker’s corporate strength, and strong leadership position in the homebuilding industry,” says Reed.
Trendmaker’s Texas Casual Cottages are unique in that they’re built off-site using traditional construction methods, then delivered to your homesite. They include such desirable finishes as hardwood floors, granite countertops and fireplaces. And, while designs are inspired by the historic farm houses built in the area by early settlers (they all feature metal roofs, large porches, pine floors, and wood walls), they also reflect modern living preferences like wide-open family room and kitchen combinations, spacious master and secondary bathrooms, and walk-in closets. All of these design features can be seen at the Model Home Farm that has been designed to also give visitors a taste of the laid-back country lifestyle to be found here.
According to Lin Spear, Trendmaker’s vice president of marketing, “the majority of past and current cottage buyers purchase these homes for weekend retreats and vacation get-aways… many of our buyers live in Houston, while others are from around the state, own land in central Texas, and need to locate a reliable builder who can deliver the right, country-savvy product.”
