Exclusive: San Antonio Homebuilder To Develop Luxe Katy Neighborhood

July 9, 2014    By: Sitterle Homes

While most new homesites are getting smaller, a San Antonio-based homebuilder is going big in a fast-growing Houston suburb.

will break ground in September on a 17-home enclave in Katy at Roesner Road and Saddlehorn Lane. Properties will be a third of an acre and each individually gated. Prices will begin in the $700,000s. The community will be called Roesner Woods.

“Roesner Woods is nestled in the heart of the Katy school district and has oversized properties for this area with homesites averaging 80 feet by 175 feet rather than the typical 80 feet by 130 feet,” , partner and Houston division president of Sitterle Homes, said in a statement. “Plus, because there is an established municipal utility district, taxes are significantly lower than in other communities.”

Roesner Woods will mark the introduction of Sitterle’s estate home product to the Houston market. Six designs will be offered, including three one-story plans from 3,390 to 3,520 square feet and three two-story designs from 4,052 to 4,704 square feet. The plans feature courtyard and verandah outdoor spaces, expansive kitchen islands open to the family great room, three- and four-car garages, wine grottos, rotunda entries and more.

Sitterle Homes entered the Houston market in March 2013 and now builds luxury garden homes in three developments: Riverstone and Imperial, both in Sugar Land, and Cross Creek Ranch in Fulshear near Katy. All are communities developed by Houston-based Co.

Von Hofe said the builder is nearly sold out in its first community, Riverstone.

Riverstone, that ranked the number of homes sold by mid-year in master-planned communities. Riverstone ranked No. 4. Cross Creek Ranch also made the list at No. 14.

Roesner Woods will be Sitterle Homes’ fourth community and its first self-development project in the area. It also builds in San Antonio and Austin.
