Firethorne reached an all-time high of 368 new home sales in 2014, bringing the Katy/Fulshear community two-thirds of the way to its build-out. Project-to-date, Firethorne has sold 2,359 new homes and closed on 2,258. When completed, the 1,400-acre master-planned community will feature 3,400 homes, with 150 acres devoted to parks and recreational amenities.
Katy/Fulshear – Jan. 8, 2015 – “We sold more than a home a day, on average, which was record-breaking for us,” said Firethorne General Manager Wayne Meyer. “We look forward to another outstanding year in 2015,” added Meyer, who attributes the community’s success to its high-quality, family-oriented amenities, neighborly spirit, top-rated public schools, and easy access to I-10, Houston’s Energy Corridor and Texas Medical Center-West Campus.
According to Meyer, Realtors and relocation specialists accounted for 83.2 percent of Firethorne’s new home sales in 2014.
Firethorne recently opened six new sections and will open a new Model Home Park for its 70-foot lots in Spring 2015 showcasing homes by Ashton Woods Homes, Coventry Homes, Highland Homes, Perry Homes and Ravenna Homes.
Family amenities include a resort-style multi-level family swim center, sports fields, a neighborhood Community Center with a meeting room and fully equipped fitness facility, a competitive Swim Center with regulation six-lane, 25-yard-long lap pool and a Clubhouse for residents’ private functions. Hand-in-hand with Firethorne’s skyrocketing growth came the construction of the community’s first school, Ray and Jamie Wolman Elementary in Katy ISD, which opened in 2012.
Named for a resilient evergreen indigenous to the Texas prairie, Firethorne blends with the best nature has to offer: 150 acres devoted to parks and recreational amenities highlighted by a scenic 12-acre lake with surrounding greenbelt, hike and bike trails, parks and playgrounds, discovery-rich wildlife observation area, a natural bird habitat and more.
The Firethorne builder team consists of Ashton Woods Homes, Coventry Homes, Highland Homes, Perry Homes, Plantation Homes, Ravenna Homes and Saratoga Homes. New homes range in price from the high $100s to the mid-$800s. The builder team was selected based upon the highest standards for design, quality, customer satisfaction and reputation.
