Everything really is bigger in Texas and no home tour will be more immense than the one planned by The Johnson Development Corp. in April.
The long-time Houston land developer is opening 84 model homes and more than 300 available homes throughout the area weekends in April for “Houston’s Largest Home Tour.” Homes will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. Admission is free.
“Thousands of design ideas featured in our fully decorated model homes will inspire tour visitors,” said Doug Goff, senior vice president and chief operating officer of The Johnson Development Corp. “With communities throughout the Houston area, the public can tour homes in their immediate vicinity one weekend and then explore a new part of Houston the next.”
Seven Johnson Development communities are participating in the tour, including three ranked among the nation’s top-selling developments. They are:
• Cross Creek Ranch, a 3,200-acre community in Fulshear, just minutes west of the Grand Parkway off of FM 1093. Among the region’s 10 top-selling communities, Cross Creek Ranch has been named Houston’s 2011 Master-Planned Community of the Year by the Greater Houston Builders Association.
