Pelican Builders has purchased two acres of land in East Shore, the Garden District of The Woodlands Town Center from The Woodlands Development Company for the construction of homes in two new neighborhoods – Ellipse Park and East Gate, according to Buck Driggers, Vice President of Residential Sales and Development for The Woodlands Development Company.
The first phase of development in Ellipse Park will feature 12 single family homes. The homesites are situated in the Mid-Lake area of East Shore, adjacent to Ellipse Park, a one-half acre private garden park. The homes will feature views of either the park or 200-acre Lake Woodlands.
According to Derek Darnell, Principal with Pelican Builders, the homes will feature classic architecture, elegant interior finishes and view corridors to side courtyards and patio spaces. The architect is George Hopkins of The Hopkins Company, Architects, based in New Orleans. The average home size will be 3,000 square feet with three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and a breakfast room. Homebuyers will have the option to convert an additional 722 square feet, adding a fourth bedroom, fourth bath and study. The homes will range in price from the $690’s – $770’s.
Situated off Lake Front Circle in East Shore, East Gate will be a neighborhood of 41 single family patio homes with gated access. “The community will offer privacy and elegance at an affordable price,” said Darnell. East Gate will feature a swimming pool and cabana, available exclusively to its residents. Home sizes will range from 2,100 – 2,600 square feet with pricing from the $400’s. Construction is expected to begin this winter with initial occupancy in the fall of 2012.
