Achieve a lock-and-leave lifestyle at Somerset Green

March 10, 2019

Today’s home buyers lead active lives and often desire the ease of stress-free, low-maintenance homeownership. Whether traveling the world or escaping for the weekend, Somerset Green offers residents the convenience of lock-and-leave living.

Former Bellaire residents Helen and Cal Leeke said they had been searching for a lock-and-leave home.

“Many options inside the Loop were beautiful and had large windows, but they looked onto a neighbor’s roof or were in densely populated areas,” Helen said.

Somerset Green is a luxury community with amenities usually found only in a master-planned community. It is located off I-10 and Old Katy Road, 10 minutes from downtown. Its location provides convenient access to the city’s major thoroughfares and is minutes away from popular destinations like the Heights, Washington Corridor, the Galleria and River Oaks.

Visitors drive through the guard-gated entry and find themselves surrounded by canals, lakes, meticulously manicured gardens and gathering spaces. The community features amenities that include a swimming pool and entertainment space, walkable streetscapes a playgound and dog parks.

“We were impressed by Somerset Green’s European-inspired architecture, the pond, water features and the overall beauty of the neighborhood,” Helen said.

Developed by Hines, Somerset Green offers layouts with expansive living areas ideal for entertaining, hardwood floors, marble countertops, rooftop terraces and elevators. Featured builders include Coventry Homes, Darling Homes, Pelican Builders, Riverway Homes and Toll Brothers.

“We selected a design from Toll Brothers,” Cal explained. “The buying and building processes were effortless, and the team made several excellent suggestions based on experience, which Helen and I appreciated.”

Their home overlooks the community’s pond, which they describe as one of their favorite features.

“It is peaceful to overlook the water and watch the wildlife,” Helen said.

A respite in the heart of the city, Somerset Green offers a sense of community with the excitement that comes with Inner Loop living.
