Elegant, Gated 55+ Community of The Village at Tuscan Lakes Has Single Story, Single Family Homes, a Sumptuous Clubhouse and a European Flair
The Village at Tuscan Lakes is an elegant, gated 55+ community that borrows its stylish architectural features from Italy's Tuscany region. Located on nearly 900 acres just southeast of Houston, Texas, it is part of a larger all ages development, Tuscan Lakes, and began in 2007. Building is now finished.
The orginal developer was Centex Homes, but Pulte (Del Webb) took over a few years later. Now that it is complete, The Village at Tuscan Lakes has nearly 360 single story, single family houses. The overall community has a resort atmosphere, as does The Village, and 55+ buyers have three home collections from which to choose.
The Classics collection has five floor plans with livable space ranging from 1,628 square feet to 2,025 square feet. These homes have two to three bedrooms, two baths, covered patios and oversized garages.
The Estates collection has three floor plans with 2,272 square feet to 2,581 square feet, two to three bedrooms, two to three baths and flexible living spaces (indoor and outdoor living rooms).
The Garden Series has smaller homes, with floor plans from 1,109 square feet to 1,469 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths.
All exteriors are brick or stone with an attached two or three car garage. Mature landscaping is standard.
Prices begin in the mid-$200,000s. HOA fees are approximately $3,180 per year. Please verify all prices with a Realtor as they may change.
The Village's sumptuous, 12,000 square foot clubhouse is modeled after a Tuscan villa and boasts a tile roof, gardens and a small fountain. Inside, luxury awaits in rooms decorated with dark wood paneling, overstuffed chairs and distinctive finishes. The outdoor pool shimmers and has a beach entry.
Homeowners also enjoy a spa, a fitness center, a putting green, bocce ball courts and more. To ensure that no one is ever bored, a full time activities' director manages a full calendar of festivals, casino nights, health fairs, movie nights, potlucks and more.
League City does not have a hospital of its own, but Houston has several hospitals, including CHRISTUS Saint John Hospital. This facility is accredited by the Joint Commission and is a Primary Stroke Center.
Summer temperatures in this area reach the high-90s. Winters are mild with temperatures in the 40s and 50s. On average, the region receives 35 inches of rain per year.

Two Spanish explorers in the 16th and 17th centuries were the first Europeans to visit this area and settled near El Paso in 1682. A French colony also existed for a time at Matagorda Bay. Americans started to settle at the edge of the Brazos River in 1821. Mexico, recently independent from Spain, controlled Texas at this time.
The American settlers eventually rebelled against Mexico and fought for their independence in the Texas Revolution (1835 to 1836). Legendary battles included San Jacinto and the Alamo. The U.S. annexed Texas in 1845, and the Mexican-American War began in 1846 as Mexico fought to keep Texas.
The U.S. captured Mexico City in 1848 and ended the war. The subsequent Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo not only kept Texas in the U.S. but gave the Americans ownership of California, half of New Mexico, most of Arizona, Nevada, Utah and parts of Wyoming and Colorado. Texas has been a part of the U.S. ever since.
The Lone Star State is the second biggest in the country in size, after Alaska, and it leads every other state in the production of cattle, sheep, oil, as well as cotton. Geography ranges from arid, flat plains in the west to the thick piney woods in the east.
Texas also boasts 100 state parks, the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, the Alamo and Big Bend Mountains National Park. In September, 2017, one of its major cities, Houston, received 51 inches of rain during Hurricane Irma.

What are the Benefits of a 55+ Development?
Developments designed for the 55+ crowd offer a lot of benefits. The main ones are security, plenty of recreation opportunities and a sense of community with people of similar backgrounds, but the benefits do not end there. Nearly all 55+ single family home communities, particularly newer ones, have single story homes, whether single family homes, town homes or condominiums. No more having to go up and down stairs all day long. Many have a homeowners' association that take care of the exterior maintenance, including mowing the lawn and shoveling the snow. Others have rental programs so that if you decide to go on vacation for six months, the association will find a qualified renter for you. There are even communities that will, for a monthly fee, provide meals, housekeeping and 24/7 emergency services.
