With people excited to live the “Lagoon Lifestyle,” 704 home buyers purchased new homes in Balmoral last year, enough to rank the community at No. 17 on a list of the nation’s 50 top-selling master-planned communities.
The list, compiled annually by Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO), tracks the number of new homes sold each year in master-planned communities across the nation.
Home buyers in Balmoral have a broad choice, with 14 builders offering tons of one- and two-story floor plans to suit any need. Pricing is from the $200,000s to $500,000s, and builders offer plenty of options for further customizations.
And while the wide selection of new homes and the prime location near Beltway 8 certainly draw home buyers to Balmoral, it’s the award-winning Amenity Village anchored by the state’s first Crystal Lagoons® amenity that is the showstopper. Named “Best Community Amenity” in the 2020 Texas Association of Builders Star Awards, the complex features a 2-acre lagoon of turquoise waters surrounded by white-sand beaches. A 7,500-square-foot clubhouse with patio and infinity-edge pool overlooks the lagoon. Nearby is a splashpad, playground and sand volleyball court. Hammocks Row beckons when all you want to do is sway in the breeze and relax with a good book.
But these amenities are not the only ones Balmoral residents enjoy. Trails crisscross the community, and two new parks open soon. Victory Park will encompass a tennis court, basketball pavilion and sports field for sports enthusiasts. Kids will enjoy two playgrounds. An amphitheater with a stage, a picnic pavilion with restrooms and an outdoor kitchen complete the park.
Fitness buffs can challenge themselves at the upcoming Fitness Hub Park, which will have a climbing wall, bamboo jungle, cargo net, dip station, row station and more to target a variety of muscle groups.
Connecting amenities to homes is the GreenBoLT, a 12-foot-wide path that easily accommodates pedestrians and cyclists.
This is the third year Balmoral has been ranked among the nation’s 50 best-selling communities.
