MANVEL/IOWA COLONY, TX (April 27, 2016) – The Texas Highway 288 master-planned community of Meridiana has opened another luxury model home, a comfortable retreat by David Weekley Homes where the award-winning homebuilder is offering new homes on spacious, 80-foot homesites.

Meridiana’s newest fully furnished model is a four bedroom, 3.5-bath plan featuring owner’s retreat with spacious, resort-style bath and walk-in closet, open-concept family room with gourmet island kitchen and dining area, handsome study and three, spacious secondary bedrooms.

Starting in the $410s, David Weekley’s single and two-story plans on 80-foot Meridiana homesites feature four and five-bedroom layouts from 2,869 – 4,106 square feet with classic exteriors, nostalgic front porches and a bonus room for a home theater, game room, homework area or hobby room.

The longtime homebuilder also is opening a model home for its 50-foot Meridiana homesites.

Developed by Rise Communities, Meridiana is the newest master-planned community south of the Texas Medical Center on Texas Highway 288 and the future Meridiana Parkway (now County Road 56) just south of Highway 6.  The 3,000-acre community also is minutes north of several major Brazoria County employers.

Meridiana offers new homes by David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes, Perry Homes, Plantation Homes, Ryland Homes, Shea Homes, Taylor Morrison and Trendmaker Homes.

The community also will feature a sprawling Amenity Village, now under construction, with resort-style family pool, cabanas and nearby café, kids’ splash pad and an outdoor game area with giant chessboard, ping pong tables, washer toss and wide open spaces for play.  A spacious fitness center rivaling the finest health clubs will offer an on-site personal trainer, spin bikes, free weights and exercise machines.  The fitness center also will house lockers, showers and a kids’ playroom.

The Amenity Village will be home to a glass-walled conservatory set over the water, ideal for receptions and special events, and a fully customized, 40-foot luxury Ambassador’s Yacht where Meridiana dog ambassador Soleil will invite residents to spend the night in honor of a birthday or special occasion.

As part of the community’s unique education focus for every stage of life, the development team is working closely with faculty of the Alvin Independent School District to create engaging outdoor learning and discovery experiences, each with dedicated websites, as part of Meridiana’s first phase.  Each experience will be designed to fit into the District’s curriculum for students from kindergarten through high school.
