Cross Creek Ranch Opens New Luxury Patio Home Neighborhood

The Welcome Center at Cross Creek Ranch.

The fast-growing west Houston community of Cross Creek Ranch has announced plans to open a new neighborhood where Sitterle Homes and Darling Homes will present 68 luxury patio homes against a backdrop of lush greenbelts and winding trails. 

With custom features including gourmet kitchens, open living and entertainment areas, spacious master suites and outdoor entertainment spaces, the luxury patio homes appeal to those seeking a low-maintenance style of living, yet large enough for families to entertain, says Shannon Vining, marketing manager of Darling Homes. “Their design provides all of the amenities a buyer could ask for in a low-maintenance home,” adds Vining.

New patio homes from Sitterle Homes are inspired by Hill Country vistas and have a distinctly relaxed vibe. Since entertaining is important, the plans have open kitchens/great rooms that look out onto outdoor living areas. “Patio homes are a great fit for both active empty nesters and busy, young professionals,” adds Steve Von Hofe, Houston division president for Sitterle Home. “It’s an easy-going lifestyle that has come of age.”

The luxury patio homes from Sittlerle Homes and Darling Homes will be located in the new Cross Creek Ranch neighborhood known as The Pond. Patio homes in Cross Creek Ranch also are available from Trendmaker Homes, priced from the $400s.

Cross Creek Ranch, a project of The Johnson Development Corp., is located just minutes west of the Grand Parkway off FM 1093 in close proximity to the Energy Corridor and several other major employment centers. In addition to its award-winning builders and outstanding schools, families in Cross Creek Ranch enjoy the Cross Creek Ranch Adventure Island Waterpark, a second resort-style pool, Flewellen Creek Park, miles of hike-and-bike trails along with winding creeks and lakes, a fitness center and sports complex with tennis courts, basketball court, sand volleyball court and playgrounds for all ages. The community also is home to the Flewellen Creek disc golf course and a one-acre Canine Commons Dog Park.

Cross Creek Ranch ranks as the second-fastest growing community in the nation based on 2013 new home sales. It also ranks #13 among the nation’s top-20 selling mater-planned communities, according to John Burns Real Estate Consulting. For more information, visit
