J. Patrick Homes Debuts New Plan, Standard Features in Artavia

J. Patrick Homes recently unveiled a new model home in Conroe’s Artavia community and in doing so, introduced a new floor plan for the Houston-based homebuilder and a smart home package that is now standard for all of its designs in Artavia.

The McKenzie II design, at 15314 Viviente Drive, is J. Patrick Homes’ model in Artavia, offers four bedrooms, a media and game room, private study and three-car garage. The home features a modern stone-and-stucco front exterior with both broad and transom windows. The model’s interior also has cutting-edge nuances such as a vertical glass fireplace with color-changing gas flames, floor-to-ceiling tile fireplace surround and the builder’s signature “car wash” shower.

“In keeping with the developer’s vision for the community — to live colorfully — we painted the front door and the garage door blue, which also adds to the home’s modern sensibility,” said Tim Drone, Executive Vice President of J. Patrick Homes.

There are three versions of the McKenzie design — which is now also offered in Aliana, Jordan Ranch, Harper’s Preserve and The Lakes of Shadow Creek at Augusta Pines — allowing for a fourth garage bay or extended guest suite. Numerous options are available for each version.

Something standard in the model and all of J. Patrick’s homes in Artavia is a smart home technology package powered by Qolsys, a company dedicated to efficiency and connectivity in home technology. J. Patrick’s whole-home automation package includes a smart home and security hub with Bluetooth, a Skybell video doorbell, a Z-Wave-enabled front door lock and light switch, cat 6 and RG6 quad shield wiring and 5.1 surround sound prewiring. After closing, buyers will receive “white glove service” to get all of their devices set up and connected.

“We are introducing this package in Artavia with plans to roll it out to other communities in the future,” Drone said.

J. Patrick Homes offers eight highly customizable floor plans in Artavia ranging from 2,802 to 3,791 square feet. Base pricing is from the $410,000s.

An Airia Development community, Artavia is located along FM 1314 and State Highway 242 between Interstate 45 and U.S. Highway 59. Residents will enjoy a generous amenity palette including a splash pad, ponds, paddleboats, playground, event lawn, meditation rain garden, clubhouse with fitness center and the Palate Café.

Community Spotlight: Jordan Ranch

Community Spotlight: Jordan Ranch

Small town charm and big-time amenities are what make Jordan Ranch in West Houston one of the premier communities J. Patrick Homes is proud to build in.

Located in family-friendly Fulshear just a mile away from Interstate 10, Jordan Ranch prides itself on offering residents a traditional, tightly knit community near major employers and urban attractions.

When it comes to having fun, the most popular place to hang is a resort-style pool with one of the most unique amenities ever to grace a master-planned community — a lazy river. Provided inner tubes allow residents to float along the river, which winds around the pool.

Residents also meet up at The Shed to use the state-of-the art fitness center or practice their backhand on the tennis court. Kids work off energy at the playground after school. A large event lawn provides the backdrop for concerts and movies under the stars.

A full-time, award-winning “Director of Fun” plans more than 75 activities per year including food truck Fridays, murder mystery dinners, clubs and activities for the kids.

Great schools are another attraction. Young residents attend recently built schools in the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District including top-rated Fulshear High School as well as highly regarded Leaman Junior High and Lindsey Elementary. Roberts Middle School a sixth grade-only campus opened this August.

J. Patrick Homes is now offering homes in Jordan Ranch priced from the $390,000s. Homes are situated on sprawling 70-foot homesites. The nine available designs range from 2,802 to 3,764 square feet and feature island kitchens, covered patios and master suites with sitting areas.

Master-planned Artavia’s Model Home Village Now Open

Artavia, a 2,200-acre master-planned community in the Montgomery County/Conroe area has opened its model home village to the public and features 10 model homes including J. Patrick Homes.

“We wanted home shoppers to have the opportunity to see and experience the broad range of housing styles and options that are available all in one location,” said Travis Stone, president of AIRIA Development Company, the developer of Artavia. “Buyers will find a wide variety of floor plans and home sizes that meet the growing demands in the area, from first-time buyers to empty nesters.” The model home village is nestled along towering pine trees in a picturesque natural setting.

Phase 1 of Artavia consists of 458 homes with prices ranging from the $240,000s to the $500,000s. The community offers 50- to 70-foot lot sizes and floor plans from 1,600 to 4,600 square feet.

At the heart of Artavia will be a 13-acre community complex including a 5-acre lake with paddleboats and a kayak launch area. The complex is being developed to include a contemporary-style clubhouse featuring a 24-hour fitness center, cafe, and gathering spaces. Surrounding it are intended to be thoughtfully designed areas promoting imaginative play, outdoor living and an active lifestyle.

Regularly scheduled events, classes and activities will be facilitated by a community lifestyle manager, creating a community that encourages residents to live colorfully by connecting with the outdoors, bonding with neighbors and forming lasting memories.

Artavia is located north of Grand Parkway, midway between I-45 and U.S. 59, and east of FM 1314 on Texas 242. The development will bring approximately 5,200 homes to the area, and plans currently include over 120 acres of mixed-use, commercial and retail properties.
