Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 19, 2008
Lakes of Bella Terra, the newest resort-style community by Ryko Development, Inc., is at the top of its class in West Houston with high scores in every category homebuyers use to evaluate new communities.
From its ultra convenient location just minutes from the Westpark Tollway and around the corner from The Shops at Bella Terra, to its resort-style amenities, low taxes and access to great new schools, Lakes of Bella Terra offers homebuyers everything they could want in a new neighborhood.
Families with children now have an additional incentive for considering Lakes of Bella Terra - one year of free tuition to Westlake Prep, offered by the Lakes of Bella Terra Builders. This offer is valid on new home contracts starting July 1 through October 1, 2008, and it is joined by an offer from Westlake Prep to extend a 15% discount on tuition to all Lakes of Bella Terra students for the remainder of their education at that school.
Scheduled to open in the Fall 2008 semester, the first phase of Westlake Prep will consist of a 40,000 square foot elementary school that will serve students from pre-school through fourth grade. The brand new facility will house classrooms, a state-of-the-art media center and library, gymnasium, administrative offices, and more. An especially exciting feature of Phase I is "Before And After School Care" from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm.
Lakes of Bella Terra's youngest students will also soon have access to nearby Joe A. Hubenak Elementary School, a brand new facility scheduled to break ground this summer and open in 2009. This campus will be part of the award-winning Lamar Consolidated Independent School District, which is renowned for its modern facilities.
While access to great schools certainly contributes to the "family-friendly" atmosphere at Lakes of Bella Terra, it's the people who live there that make it such a special place to call home.
"There's a tremendous sense of community here," said Lisa Clark, Vice President of Ryko Development, Houston's 2006 "Developer of the Year". "We have so many great homeowners, like Stacie and Tom Langland, who take tremendous pride in the community and who actively help bring neighbors together."
The Langlands recently helped organize a neighborhood Fourth of July Party, complete with a parade, a cook-out, games, activities and an inflatable "moonwalk". The party was held at the Lakes of Bella Terra Recreation Center, a multi-million dollar facility with a junior Olympic pool, water playground, tennis courts, volleyball courts, state-of-the-art exercise center and community gathering rooms.
"The turnout was terrific and everybody had a wonderful time," added Clark. "This is the second event in the last few months that was organized by homeowners. Prior to the Fourth of July Party, Evelyn and Jay Hroch organized an Easter Egg Hunt, which was a huge hit with the neighborhood kids and is sure to become an annual event."
Another feature of Lakes of Bella Terra that continues to attract homebuyers is its extensive offering of homes by many of West Houston's most popular builders. Lakes of Bella Terra offers Executive Homes from the $170's to the $600's, and 10 models are currently open. Lakes of Bella Terra also features Estate Custom Homes in a gated, waterfront enclave within the community. These spectacular, one-of-a-kind designs are now selling from the $700's to $2 million.
