Fireflies and the nighttime chirping of crickets is something many of us took for granted as children. Chasing fireflies with a mason jar in one hand while being serenaded by the soft almost longing cricket songs is a favorite memory for many of childhoods. However, many of our children have never experienced this wonderful childhood activity. Fulshear Texas is still a place with flowing streams, amazing trees, and yes fireflies. Fulshear, a formally sleepy town with a population of fewer than 1000 people as late as 2003 is now one of the fastest-growing cities in the Houston metroplex. Many people would simply credit the growth of Fulshear to being a Houston and Katy suburb, however, Fulshear’s real estate growth is fueled by multiple factors.
First, Fulshear is truly a well-positioned and beautiful city, with charm and some of the area’s most wonderful venues. Local real estate developers and businesses seem to truly embrace this very special quality of Fulshear. Many home builders offer larger lots littered with mature trees. Local businesses often embrace an architectural style that helps accent the community. The proximity to the Westpark Tollway and the cities location in fast-growing Fort Bend County help ensure long-term success.
Next, one must consider the builders and developers that have embraced Fulshear. Weston Lakes Country Club and the homes that surround it began construction decades ago offering many homeowners golf courses, or greenbelt views. Weston Lakes is an almost 1500 acre master-planned community that offers a gated entrance, private golf course, and hundreds of gorgeous pecan trees. Nearby, Fullbrook offers custom estate homes, many on acreage, and most with stunning settings. Fulshear Creek Crossing, Fulbrook, and Fulshear Creek also offer gorgeous homes on lots that are usually a little larger than the norm. Major master-planned communities like Firethorne and Cross Creek Ranch offer a more traditional master-planned community experience (traditional sized lots, community pools, walking trails, and amenities galore) and are greatly contributing to Fulshear’s growth.
Finally, Fulshear is lucky to be part of the Lamar Consolidated School District. The area’s growth and the leader’s commitment to education have led to Lamar being ranked near the top of areas schools. While not quite as well known as the Katy School District, Lamar is going a wonderful reputation and following.
Fulshear is truly set for long-term growth. The fireflies and crickets are waiting to greet you. However, more importantly, the home builders and developers are ready with sensational homes.
