Empty nesters will find all of the features and lifestyle amenities they are looking for in new construction by Caldwell Homes, a division of award-winning developer Caldwell Companies.
After conducting extensive research to learn the homebuying preferences and needs of baby boomers, Caldwell Homes specifically crafted a product to suit their every desire without sacrificing the spaces that matter most—kitchens, closets, storage, and master bathrooms. At Caldwell Homes, active adult buyers don’t downsize when looking for their home, they “right size” to a home that’s suited to their lifestyle. The builder also added a much sought-after component that makes an afternoon at home feel like a vacation: covered outdoor pavilions. Caldwell takes outdoor living to the max with patios that are large enough for furniture, kitchens, a large screen TV, firepits and a cocktail pool. Even more enticing, residents have the option of adding sliding glass doors to the pavilion that when left open bring the outdoors inside and the indoors outside.
“At Caldwell Homes, we build more than just homes; we build a unique living environment that accentuates a lifestyle,” says Jennifer Symons, marketing director for Caldwell Companies. “Front yard maintenance is even included so homeowners can travel without worrying about their yard. .”
Live like you’re on vacation
Caldwell Homes placed these exclusive single-story patio homes in the gated sections of two master-planned communities: Towne Lake in Cypress and Mission Ranch in College Station. Each live up to the developer’s live, work, and play motto by being conveniently located near major thoroughfares, employers, shopping, entertainment, dining, and medical centers.
An award-winning master-planned community centered around a 300-acre lake for boating, fishing, and water skiing, Towne Lake gives residents plenty of opportunities to entertain their grandkids and friends. The community boasts miles of hiking and biking trails, parks, a state-of-the-art fitness center, lake house, private island with sandy beaches and grills for picnicking, a waterpark with lazy river and two full-time lifestyle directors who plan a variety of events that bring neighbors together.
“A lot of our clients’ families live within Towne Lake,” says Anthony Moreno, sales manager with Caldwell Homes. “They can drive over on a golf cart and take their grandkids to the lazy river for the day, skiing or tubing on the lake or go to the island to barbecue and have a picnic.”
A rare find in Cypress, Towne Lake offers single-story waterfront properties that give residents an opportunity to take a boat from the marina or their own dock to dinner at the Boardwalk—a mixed-use commercial district with shopping, dining and medical services—and afterward watch a live band in the wide-open green space. If residents don’t own a boat, Towne Lake’s HOA offers a boat taxi service.
While Towne Lake is located minutes from the Beltway and Highways 99 and 290, Mission Ranch is in close proximity to prestigious Texas A&M University and the exciting games at Kyle Field. A peaceful wooded community designed in classic Texas hill country style, Mission Ranch has its own private lake, , acres of glorious green space and more than 400 miles of scenic trails that entice residents to get outside and keep active.
Homes designed for aging in place
Whether buyers seek a Caldwell Home in Towne Lake or Mission Ranch, they will find homes with universal design features, such as zero-entry thresholds on showers and garages, wide doorways that allow for aging in place and smart home technology as part of the company’s LiveWell commitment to buyers. From stringent and environmentally friendly build standards to physical and social wellness considerations, each home is designed to improve quality of life.
“We offer 14 different single-level plans primarily focused on the active adult,” Moreno says. “All of our plans are designed with large open kitchens, lots of windows, nice covered pavilions, tankless hot water heaters, spray foam insulation and front lawn maintenance.”
A sound investment, each home meets the stringent Environments for Living Diamond Level performance rating, which ensures that it’s built with the latest technology for the utmost in durability, air quality and energy efficiency, Symons says. “A high performing home not only costs less to maintain but the quality of the construction adds long-term value.”
Priced from $330,000, homes range from 1,800 square feet to 4,400 square feet and come with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 to 4.5 baths and up to 3-car garages. Fulfilling the wish-lists of empty nesters, the low-maintenance homes have gourmet kitchens with oversized islands for prepping meals and elegant living rooms for entertaining guests. Master baths feature oversized dual closets, dual vanities, comfort height commodes, oversized walk-in showers with seats, and a soaking tub option. Secondary bedrooms can be used as a flex space or hobby room while secondary bathrooms include a shower/tub combo or upgrade to walk-in shower.
“There is an ability to add a half-story to a home,” Moreno says. “Some of our buyers take advantage of that option if they want an upstairs game-room or bedroom/bathroom combination.”
Exteriors in Towne Lake are stucco/stone and brick/stone while Mission Ranch exteriors feature board and baton with brick, full brick with stone or stucco/stone
Extremely busy with work, a client of Susan Annoura’s needed a builder who was flexible, open-minded, easy to work with and made decisions quickly. She found it in Caldwell Homes. “The team was hands on and really cared about my clients needs and timeline,” says Annoura, broker/owner of Annoura Realty Group. “They made sure the house was perfect and all promises were met before we closed.”
Annoura’s client chose a waterfront property alongside a serene park. The home has a simple, elegant stucco elevation and inside, unique rounded vaulted ceilings that give a light, airy feeling to the space. He added an outdoor kitchen, opted for a flex space/single room on the second floor and a five-car garage with a mini- split for air conditioning on an as-needed basis.
“With Caldwell you are not simply buying a home,” Symons says. “You are becoming part of a thoroughly planned lifestyle that starts the minute you enter one of our communities.”
