Audubon, a 3,000-acre residential development in Magnolia expecting to have 4,200 single-family homes at buildout, moved into its second phase of development, a Dec. 3 press release from the company said. Drees Custom Homes and Perry Homes both recently began home sales in the community, the release said.

Anglia Homes and Devon Street Homes developed in the community during the first phase, with Anglia Homes opening the first model homes in the community in April, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported. Empire Communities will also begin building in December, the release said.

“Drees Custom Homes, Perry Homes and Empire are new to Audubon and will broaden the home choices and expand the price points available in Audubon,” said Sam Yager, vice president of Audubon Magnolia Development, LLC. “Expanding our range of offered floor plans and square footage will not only bring in new move-up buyers, but will give current residents an option for a new home when their needs change without them having to leave the community.”

Perry Homes and Drees Custom Homes will have 60 homesites available, while Empire Communities will have 33 homesites, according to the release. Prices will begin in the low $500,000s for Perry Homes and $550,000s for Drees Custom Homes.

Home prices were not announced for the Empire Communities homes.

Screech Park, which offers a playground, bench seating, activity lawns and a Screech Owl habitat, is now open in the community, the release said. Future amenities include more trails and parks, a clubhouse and a resort-style pool.

The master-planned community will also have 550 acres dedicated for mixed-use development, according to the release.
