Lake Forest Katy Texas Michelle Sturdevant

Lakeforest offers homebuyers something completely different. Heavily-wooded on one side with lakes and lighted fountains on the other, this community of just 73 Estate Homes, all on oversized lots was conceived as a hidden-away sanctuary for homebuyers who prefer to remain secluded from hectic city life.

Lakeforest offers a prestigious and beautifully landscaped gated entrance with 24 hour security. Beautiful clean lakes, lighted fountains and palm trees create a tropical oasis for these exceptional Kickerillo custom built estate homes.

With lush landscape framed circular driveways and exquisitely manicured properties, these homes range from $850,000 to over $2 million.

The neighborhood attracts all types from self-made millionaires, sports figures and Oil and Gas executives to growing families with small children. Although we still quite a few long-term “empty nester” owners who still live here.

GPS lovers will really enjoy my special guide to the best shopping, restaurants, golf & attractions including addresses and distances from home to help you navigate your way around. It is small booklet we have put together just for you...OUR RESIDENTS.
