Thirty three miles south of downtown Houston, midway to the sunny beaches of Galveston, sits the gated community of Whispering Lakes Ranch in League City, Texas. When you pull into the gates on Whispering Lakes Ranch Drive, you cross over to the serenity of winding roads escorting you among the manmade lakes with fountains spraying. Imagine a place where every home sits on a minimum of one acre, where children are free to ride their bikes around acres of lakes on sidewalk trails, where neighbors visit each other by traveling on golf carts and where automobile traffic is limited. Indeed, once your neighbors are done with their work week, it is common for them to travel by foot or golf cart for most of the rest of the weekend, walking the lakes, feeding the ducks or visiting neighbors. Cookouts are the norm and get-togethers abound, as residents have plenty of outdoor space to entertain.
The homes of Whispering Lakes Ranch are equally spectacular, as the three original builders- Trendmaker, Perry Homes and David Powers shared their individual flair in developing home styles that vary from one another, creating a neighborhood of unique diversity. Although the smallest homes are around 3,000 square feet, the average home in Whispering Lakes is 4,700 square feet and the largest around 8,000 square feet. Many sizes are available, but in general when construction took place, most residents wanted to make use of their expansive lots by building the home of their dreams according their unlimited size desires. With new construction coming to an end recently and with the desirability of the neighborhood, you won’t find many homes for sale. Indeed, of the 310 homes in the neighborhood, it is common for only 5-10 homes to be for sale at any point in time. When listings do come up, prices can range from the $400s to the $800s.
Children of Whispering Lakes Ranch are fortunate to be schooled at the award-winning Education Village, a much sought after complex that brings together Mossman Elementary, Bayside Intermediate and Clear Falls High School all situated on one beautifully designed campus. Residents can golf at one of the many public or private golf courses or if boating is your passion, there are numerous marinas in the area. Whatever it is that suits your lifestyle, Whispering Lakes Ranch is in the middle of it all and provides you with luxury living away from the big city chaos!
