Homebuilder Meritage Homes announced Aug. 18 that it has joined Lennar in building single-family homes in Alexander Estates, a new residential development under construction near Hufsmith-Kohrville and Spell Roads in Tomball. Meritage Homes has acquired land to build 125 one- and two-story homes in the community, the homebuilder announced.

Alexander Estates is zoned to Klein ISD schools.

“Alexander Estates will be ideal for families looking for a spacious new home within the sought-after Klein ISD,” said Kyle Davison, division president for Meritage Homes in Houston, in the release. “With Meritage Homes’ high standard for quality construction and energy efficiency that goes into every home, this is a great opportunity to escape escalating rents and transition to homeownership in this fast-growing area.”

Homes built by Meritage will begin in the upper $200,000s and range from 2,067 square feet to 3,237 square feet, according to the release, with nine open concept floor plans with up to four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Additional features include island kitchens and extra spaces, such as studies, game rooms and flex rooms, as well as energy- and money-saving features. According to the release, every home includes high-tech features, such as Energy Star-certified appliances, Low-E windows and a high-performance air filtration system to improve the home's air quality and reduce allergens. Each home also includes an automation suite, including smart door locks, USB outlets, a smart garage door and advanced thermostats, according to the release.


The model home, The Kendall—a two-story, four-bed, 2.5-bath option with a three-car garage—is expected to open this fall in Alexander Estates, according to the release.

Alexander Estates is located near the Tomball Business & Technology Park, where a brewery and restaurant headed by brewmaster Chris Juergen of Houston's Karbach Brewing Co. is expected to break ground by year's end and open in the second quarter of 2021.

Alexander Estates will have 251 homes and was approved by the city of Tomball in 2017, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.

Lennar, a housing development company, announced plans July 15 to launch its model home in Alexander Estates this fall, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.
