These newest homes by Trendmaker are based upon the proven success of Chardonnay Farms Country Cottages, a Texas-based company located in Round Top that was founded by Sandy Reed. "The success of Chardonnay Farms Country Cottages over the past few years gives Trendmaker a great foundation on which to build, and we have been able to make tremendous strides in a very short time frame because of it," said Holder.
Sandy Reed offers another perspective:
Trendmaker's expansion into the rural and semi-rural market areas of central Texas is well underway. A new "Model Home Farm" will open June 19 in Round Top, a short drive west of Brenham. The "Farm" is located on Highway 237, across from the Big Red Barn, a well-known antiques center landmark, halfway between 290 and the town of Round Top, Texas.
The new line of high-quality, country-style homes includes a turn-key package of construction and home site preparation services from one source - a reliable and financially secure Texas-based homebuilder. Floorplans range in size from a perfectly-sized guest cottage (450 sq. ft.) to a truly sprawling Texas farm house of 4,500 sq. ft.
Texas Casual Cottages include such desirable finishes as hardwood floors, granite countertops and fireplaces. And, while designs are inspired by the historic farm houses built in the area by early settlers (they all feature metal roofs, large porches, pine floors, and wood walls), they also reflect modern living preferences like wide-open family room and kitchen combinations, spacious master and secondary bathrooms, and walk-in closets. All of these design features can be seen at the Model Home Farm that has been designed to also give visitors a taste of the laid-back country lifestyle to be found here.
"We found that the majority of past and current cottage buyers purchase these homes for weekend retreats and vacation get-aways," says Lin Spear, Trendmaker's vice president of marketing. "Many of our buyers live in Houston, while others are from around the state, own land in central Texas, and need to locate a reliable builder who can deliver the right, country-savvy product."
Trendmaker's Casual Cottages' project manager, Bruce Okruhlik, adds that building country cottages was a natural extension of Trendmaker's expertise in building on acreage communities in the Houston area. "Trendmaker pioneered the concept for acreage developments in Houston more than ten years ago, and the idea has grown in popularity, since that time," he says.
"As Houston has evolved, so have our home buyers," says Will Holder. "True country living, that is easily accessible to Houston is very desirable, and represents the next exciting frontier for our business."
Chardonnay Farms Country Cottages was started in February 2007 by Sandy Reed, a long-time Houston Realtor whose company, Sandy Reed & Associates, grew into one of the city's largest independent real estate firms. Reed moved to Round Top in 1990 to raise American Saddlebred horses, renovate and sell historic houses, and to sell real estate, of course. She serves as sales manager and design consultant for Texas Casual Cottages by Trendmaker.
