Construction has begun at Haven at Seven Lakes, a 129-home residential community located directly off of Westpark Tollway at its intersection with Katy-Gaston. The development is being built by Trendmaker Homes Houston and is expected to be completed in the first quarter of this year.

“To love where you are, but also be able to easily get where you need to be is an essential part of quality community living and something the residents of Haven at Seven Lakes will definitely enjoy,” said Joe Mandola, division president at Trendmaker Homes Houston, in a press release. “This rare infill development opportunity called for a tailored, extra-effort approach, resulting in a unique and thoughtful home plan line-up that we’re confident will resonate with Houston-area homebuyers.”


The development will feature 40- and 50-foot homesites with 10 curated floor plans ranging from 2,000 to 3,000 square feet. The floor plans offer opportunities for customization, including additional bedrooms, studies and media rooms. The community will also feature walking trails with exercise stations, a playground and pavilion area, and a butterfly garden.

“Owning new homes in a mature district means residents will also benefit from an already lower tax rate, which has decreased even further,” Mandola said. “According to the Houston Association of Realtors, ‘the good news continues on the development side as Greater Houston home sales soared 29% in September and the single-family home median price and average price increased 8.3% and 10.1%, respectively—both record highs for the month.’” 281-675-3335. www.havenatsevenlakes.com
