Firethorne is revving up for its 2013 Taste of Texas Model Home Tour Saturday, May 4 – Friday, May 10, showcasing 12 homes in the master-planned community’s four Model Home Parks, including a model in Firethorne’s first-ever gated section. The Model Home Tour, free and open to the public from10 a.m. to7 p.m., will feature prize drawings for those who complete the full tour.
Firethorne will open its dozen fully furnished and landscaped model homes in the four Model Home Parks, including a new brick and stone veneer Perry home in Firethorne’s Model Park III. The Perry model is a one-story, four-bedroom, three-bath home with a three-car garage. Perry Homes is the exclusive builder in this gated neighborhood composed of 60-foot lots. The two-phase section will house approximately 150 homes upon completion.
Other members of the Firethorne builder team are Ashton Woods Homes, Coventry Homes, Highland Homes, M/I Homes and Plantation Homes.
Firethorne’s Model Park I, II and III are east of FM 1463 on Pinpoint Crossing Drive and Iron Point Court, respectively. Model Park I features three two-story homes by Coventry Homes, Perry Homes and Highland Homes on 80-foot lots. Perry Homes and Coventry Homes built homes in Model Park II. Firethorne’s Model Park IV, situated on 50- and 60-foot lots on Firethorne West’s Power Ridge Drive, has six homes (one two-story and five one-story), built by Ashton Woods, Highland Homes, M/I Homes, Perry Homes (two houses) and Plantation Homes.
Those who tour all the Firethorne model homes on the tour and have their Taste of Texas passports stamped accordingly, are eligible to win such prizes as $100 gift cards, $50 Shell gas cards, Houston Astros baseball tickets and a Texas wine basket. Taste of Texas passports are available at each model home and at the Firethorne Visitor Center.
Firethorne blends the best nature has to offer: 150 acres devoted to parks and recreational amenities, a 12-acre lake with surrounding greenbelt, hike/bike trails, parks and playgrounds, tennis courts, Fitness Center, Community Center, resort-style swimming pool, Swim Center with regulation lap pool, discovery-rich wildlife observation area and a natural bird habitat. Served by highly acclaimed schools in Katy I.S.D. and Lamar Consolidated I.S.D., Firethorne combines the vibrancy of West Houston with the small-town charm of Katy/Fulshear. It is located near the crossroads of I-10 West and FM 1463, 10 and 15 miles west, respectively, of the Texas Medical Center-West Campus and Houston’s Energy Corridor.
To visit Firethorne, take I-10 West and exit Pin Oak to FM 1463.
