 The-Woodlands-Mitchell-Island

Named for George Mitchell, the late founder of The Woodlands, Mitchell Island will be the most exclusive address in The Woodlands.

Located on the eastern edge of Lake Woodlands, Mitchell Island was created in 1985 with plans to locate the corporate headquarters of Mitchell Energy and Development on the island. This plan was abandoned in 2005.

When The Woodlands East Shore was first announced in the 2000’s, the developers were going to turn the island into an exclusive clubhouse for East Shore residents. This plan for Mitchell Island changed again with the announcement of ExxonMobil’s new campus being built south of The Woodlands for 10,000 employees plus the explosive growth of Hughes Landing.

While the size of the island has been reported from various sources as 19, 20, and 22 acres, we know there will be approximately 19 one-acre lots and the bidding will begin at $1.5 million to $3 million per lot depending upon location on the island. As in every neighborhood in The Woodlands, there will be minimum and maximum square footage for the homes built on the lots.

Construction of the bridge to the island is almost complete. A pier is under construction that will eventually dock boats that will shuttle residents to Hughes Landing.

The Woodlands Creekside Park Village

The Woodlands Village of Creekside Park is planned to be home to 7,100 new families. A mix of home styles, price ranges and homebuilders is found in the Village of Creekside Park, similar to the other villages in The Woodlands. Many of the same popular homebuilders who build in other areas of The Woodlands are building new homes in Creekside Park. New homes are currently priced from the $180’s to more than $3 million.

New homebuilding is underway in several neighborhoods located off the main entrance to the village on Gosling Road and in the neighborhood of Timarron off Kuykendahl Road. Sale of new homes and homesites is also underway in the gated community of Carlton Woods Creekside, home of a Tom Fazio Championship Golf Course.

Lakes & Parklands to Discover

Vast areas of parklands, totaling 1,850 acres, along with plentiful lakes and ponds, are the highlight of the new Village of Creekside Park. Here, you and your family can enjoy hiking, swimming, fishing, kayaking and canoeing, mountain biking, birding and other creative ways to commune with nature. It’s a true adventureland!

Many of the neighborhoods in Creekside Park are centered around parks or water features. A 72-acre lake and linear park, called Lake Paloma (Spanish for “dove”), extends east to west in the center of the village, acting as a scenic connector between neighborhoods. A 12-foot wide walking and biking trail will run along the banks of Lake Paloma. Major parklands include the 1,700-acre George Mitchell Nature Preserve, named in honor of The Woodlands’ founder, George Mitchell, and 20-acre Rob Fleming Park, named in honor of Rob Fleming, Texas Parks and Wildlife naturalist and artist.

A Vision Named for a Visionary

Trailheads will lead from several of the neighborhood parks into the 1,700-acre George Mitchell Nature Preserve at the northern border of the village. Two trailheads leading into The Preserve – one in the Village of Creekside Park and one in the Village of Indian Springs – are now open. Miles of soft surface trails are also open for hiking and birding. The George Mitchell Nature Preserve includes seven miles of frontage along Spring Creek, and is part of the Spring Creek Greenway Project, a joint effort of Harris and Montgomery Counties to amass 33 miles of Spring Creek frontage for a bi-county nature trail system extending from US 59 to Spring.

Rob Fleming Park features a Craftsman-style Pavilion; a playground; tree-lined promenades and groves of specimen trees; a naturally landscaped one-acre lake with lakeside conservation trail; a bluebonnet meadow; a field for community festivals; a butterfly garden; and a picnic area. A wildlife sculpture trail that will be a tribute to the artistry of Rob Fleming will be completed soon.

White Kitchen Fatigue?

By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR® Magazine

Are homeowners growing tired of the all-white kitchen? Some design experts believe so. White kitchens have been popular over the past few years, but Houzz editor and writer Mitchell Parker predicts that the number of homeowners who will get “white-kitchen fatigue” will grow in the new year.

Some homeowners may experiment with adding more colors back in to the kitchen.

“While white kitchens aren’t going anywhere, expect to see a rise in color, especially other neutrals like gray and blue,” Parker notes in reporting on 2018 home trends. “Plus, warm wood tones are becoming a popular replacement for painted cabinets, leading to sophisticated, rich palettes.”

The two-tone look started catching on in 2017, in which cabinet colors were mixed and matched in the kitchen. For example, the bottom cabinets might be a darker color, such as gray, and the upper cabinets then all in white. Or, homeowners were making a bigger statement with their kitchen islands by painting it a bolder color that contrasted with the rest of its kitchen cabinets.
