College Station, home of the Aggies, and part of the booming Houston region, is a quietly conservative college town that likes to be the opposite of Austin. But the two cities share a few things in common, and one of those things is some of the finest new residential communities in Texas. College Station’s newest communities offer the increasingly attractive mix of urban lifestyle and suburban quiet in neighborhoods such as:
Village at Creek Meadows
The Village is the newest part of the Creek Meadows planned community and some of the finest in family and student living in College Station. This is a one-of-a-kind duplex community that pairs the huge living spaces with apartment complex amenities in a rural setting close to town. The two- and three-bedroom floor plans feature spacious rooms with nine-foot ceilings, tons of windows, two-inch wood blinds, full size kitchens with eating bars, spacious dining areas, walk in closets, built-in desks for each room, fenced back yards, covered patios, and exterior storage closets. The amenities include swimming pools, a fitness room, a covered baby pool, a covered children’s playground, and a basketball court. The Village also features many natural spaces with mature oak trees that seem just built for lazy weekend snoozes and afternoon picnics.
King Oaks, one of College Stations newer, growing communities, prides itself on combining the friendly neighborliness of small towns with proximity to city life. This is a community where neighbors still wave to each other and where there are too many stars in the night sky to count. King Oaks is a master-planned community of 1-to-3-acre secluded, wooded homesites about 4 miles from Bryan-College Station. Nature trails meander through the community and the fishing pond is sure to be an inviting respite. There’s also an outdoor amenities center with a pool and an outdoor kitchen.
