Eight well-known builders offer an array of home designs in master-planned Veranda, located in Richmond. Prices are from the $190,000s to the $600,000s.

It can take time for a master-planned community to make a name for itself, but in two short years, Veranda has become known for connecting buyers with beautiful homes and residents with an elevated lifestyle.

The iconic clocktower found in Veranda is a nod toward the rich history of the Fort Bend community.

Creating Connections
Since it opened in 2017, Veranda has welcomed nearly 300 homeowners drawn by leading builders and home designs priced from the $190,000s to the $600,000s to fit every budget and lifestyle.

Beyond homes, Veranda offers authentic living. Connections are the cornerstone of community life — to the past, nature and each other. Inspired by its location in the historic heart of Fort Bend, Veranda was designed with the idea that friendships are developed naturally over a metaphorical front porch. 

Veranda has fostered a community of happy residents who enjoy welcoming activities planned by an on-site lifestyle director.

Innovative Home Design
Cookie cutter homes are not Veranda’s style. Eight builders offer a range of designs and floor plans so buyers are able to put their individual stamp on them.

Some builders like Newmark Homes have even debuted new lines of floor plans in the community. The builder’s Portrait Series was one of the first products designed with the needs of Millennials in mind. Priced from the $230,000s, the homes rethink the traditional single-family home layout, ridding the floor plans of underutilized space. 

Other offerings include Lennar’s Twin Villas series of townhomes. Priced from the $190,000s, the townhomes offer home ownership on a smaller plateau with two floor plans to choose from. Homes feature loft spaces, island kitchens and spacious master suites.   

The success of the community has led many builders to expand their building programs. Sitterle Homes started with its signature luxury patio home designs but recently introduced a Porch Series that offers Craftsman-styled homes up to 3,900 square feet.

Coventry Homes, David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes, Perry Homes and Westin Homes also offer designs in Veranda.

Residents of Veranda beat summer’s heat at the resort-style pool, complete with twisting slides and an in-the-water rockwall.

Beyond the Front Porch
Elevated living in Veranda goes beyond the front porch. New amenities are being added all of the time. 

Last summer saw the opening of the community’s new resort-style pool. The unique design made quite the splash with three different areas for swimming and having fun. A play structure provides a pint-sized slide for young children in the kids’ pool. Two water slides lead into a small pool anchored by a rock wall. The main pool can be used for swimming, floating and games.

This summer, Veranda will celebrate the opening of The Cottage, a state-of-the-art recreation center featuring a fitness center, event lawn, playground and meeting space. Residents will be able to make appointments with a massage therapist and kids will have a private lounge.

Young Veranda residents are all smiles at the community playground, a favorite gathering space for parents and tots.

Parks, playgrounds and trails connect residents to nature but connecting them to each other is the job of Sasha Reynolds, Veranda’s Director of Fun. She oversees clubs, activities and events that allow residents to get to know one another so that one day, they can all hang out on that front porch.  

Veranda encompasses 710 acres near the northwest corner of Williams Way Boulevard and U.S. 59. For more information about Veranda, visit VerandaTexas.com
