Living the Luxury Waterfront Life
Just about a half-hour’s drive south of Dallas/Fort Worth sits a River and Lake City like no other in Central Texas. With many riverfront real estate properties and lakefront homes for sale, ranging from affordable to downright luxuriously expensive, Granbury is a popular city for people to live who want the convenience and luxury of waterfront living, but yet remain close enough to the Metroplex as is reasonable. Here are four of the top communities with homes for sale in Granbury Texas.
Bentwater on Lake Granbury
Up from the banks of Lake Granbury is the renowned neighborhood of Bentwater. As a lakefront community, Bentwater gets its name from the steep curve in the Brazos River. Surrounding hills offers fantastic view property opportunities. Vacant land sites start at 1 acre and go up from there. IF you like forest, fishing, nature, and access to the great outdoors, make sure Bentwater is on your list of communities to check out. A nice feature not included with every home is a boat slip at the community Marina that is actually included in the deed to your property. That means you don’t need waterfront property to have direct lake access! The Marina is a great place to spend recreational time down at the boat docks. It offers an outdoor picnic area, sports activities, and, always important, full restrooms. If you also enjoy horses, there are 5 acre horse properties available, just another feature that makes this real Texas living!
Catalina Bay & The Island
Considered “exclusive” by many of Granbury’s residents, Catalina Bay is most embraced for its convenience to everything that makes Granbury special. Also, both communities on Lake Granbury, Catalina Bay and The Island provide some of the most diverse homes in Granbury. Ranging from lakefront homes, homes on canals, and not to mention, some of the finest and newest waterfront homes built in Granbury, Catalina Bay and The Island are both great choices for those seeking the best in life. While both communities are gated and private, they are both different. Homes in Catalina Bay are more of a Mediterranean or California style, including stucco and/or stone exteriors with concrete or clay tile roofing. Very modern and beautiful. Neighboring Catalina Bay is The Island. Again, with a gated entrance, The Island is an amazing place to live as well. Both communities are just a golf cart’s drive away from the Harbor Lakes Golf Course and Country Club, and close to dining, shopping, and the water. Catalina Bay and The Island communities are a must see!
One of my personal favorites, DeCordova Ranch is a wonderful place to buy a home. A little more towards the direction of Fort Worth, DeCordova Ranch is a stone’s throw away from dining and shopping. The designer of the master-planned community intentionally left a large number of original trees in the area when clearing out the lots. It gives DeCordova Ranch a feel like no other place. It offers large lots, hiking trails, and a neighborhood park, and some lots are surprisingly affordable. You can buy or build your next home here. If you’re interested in living in a natural setting, DeCordova Ranch might just be the place for you.
Strictly for the luxurious, the gated community of Grand Harbor, similar to DeCordova Ranch, sit on the eastern side of Granbury TX, and is a little closer to Fort Worth. Most lots in Grand Harbor are an acre or more, and many homes are custom built. Some lots go up to four or five acres, with prices in the low $300’s, all the way up to the millions. With amazing panoramic views of Lake Granbury, Grand Harbor is a premier community where luxury truly resides.
Paradise Point Subdivsion
This classic Mediterranean custom home sits alone on a serene peninsula in the middle of a beautiful winding lake in Sugar Land, Texas. “The setting for this home is truly one-of-a-kind,” says Sims Luxury Builders president, Chris Sims.
