(Richmond, Texas – October 2019) Homebuyers want more than a house, they want a community where they can connect with neighbors and live an active, healthy lifestyle. That’s why so many buyers are choosing to put down roots in Harvest Green.
The Richmond community centered on a working farm has been popular with buyers since sales began in 2015 — so popular that last year three builders were nearly sold out.
This year, Harvest Green is in the process of developing four new neighborhoods and is already experiencing a 9 percent increase in sales— three times the nation’s average for growth. Recently, those robust sales catapulted the community onto the Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO) mid-year report naming the nation’s top 50 best-selling communities.
Eleven nationally recognized homebuilders offer a range of designs priced from the $240,000s to the to the $700,000s.
The primary draws, however, are the community’s mix of unique amenities and Fort Bend location.
Cultivating a ‘Farm-tastic’ Lifestyle
Harvest Green was named Master-Planned Community of the Year by the Greater Houston Builders Association in 2018 due in large part to the community’s most well-known amenity, the 12-acre Village Farm.
Designed to be an educational experience for residents, the farm encompasses fields, a greenhouse and plots that members of the Farm Club can rent to grow produce for their own use under the guidance of professional farm educators. The farm also is home to the community’s chickens and Nubian goats.
Home buyers also have the option of installing backyard, ready-to-plant gardens when they purchase their home. Plus, residents are able to pick berries, herbs and other produce from several designated gardens throughout the community.
While impressive, the farm is not the only amenity Harvest Green offers. The Farmhouse recreation complex includes a resort-style pool, splash pad, state-of-the-art fitness center, an ever-growing roster of exercise classes, a playground, an event lawn, dog park and a lakeside amphitheater. A full-time lifestyle director oversees numerous clubs, classes and events throughout the year.
More than 30 acres of lakes and waterways, 280 acres of greenbelts and open space, 50 acres of parkland, and a walkable trails system are also available. Tennis courts and playing fields are currently under construction.
The Heart of Fort Bend
Although centered on a farm, Harvest Green’s location near the Grand Parkway allows residents to easily access major employers, dining, shopping and entertainment options.
Many retail and dining options can be found just outside the community’s front entrance. The Shops at Harvest Green, a 14,000-square-foot retail center located at the intersection of the Grand Parkway and Harlem Road, houses eateries such as Burgerim and Subway as well as services such as dry cleaning and dentistry.
Messina Hof’s will soon break ground on the largest winery on Houston — located within Harvest Green. It will include a tasting room, wine bar, open-kitchen restaurant that can seat 130 diners and a 2,600-square-foot covered patio for larger, private events.
Also located within the community are three highly regarded Fort Bend ISD schools —Neil Elementary, Bowie Middle School and Travis High School.
