Rock Creek called a 'spot of paradise'
By FLORI MEEKS
Rock Creek has never been a subdivision, Caldwell Companies CEO Fred Caldwell said. It was designed to be much more.
It's a true community," he said. We want to enrich people's lives."
Since Caldwell Companies launched the master-planned community west of Grant Road and north of Spring Cypress Road in 2000, approximately 500 custom homes have been constructed. About 60 to 75 lots remain.
Rock Creek's layout and amenities are intended to encourage residents to get out and spend time together, Caldwell said.
More than 60 of the community's 215 acres have been reserved for streams, Rock Creek's seven lakes and a greenbelt trail system with jogging paths.
Rock Creek also has an Olympic-style swimming pool, a playground, a children's pool, tennis courts and a clubhouse.
So far, Caldwell said, the design has met its intended objective. The people here love to get together."
Further, Rock Creek has been ranked the No. 1-selling custom home community in northwest Harris County more than once over the years, community sales agent Paul Clifton said.
People like the fact it is entirely custom from start to finish," he said. You can draw it from the ground up and do whatever you want within your budget."
Homes We're fortunate to have a vision that people embraced, and that was to bring Texas Hill Country to northwest Harris County," Caldwell said.
Builders working with Rock Creek including Bill Edwards Custom Homes, Frontier Homebuilders, Rockwell Homes and Stoneleigh Custom Homes.
In addition to features within Rock Creek, the community is near a Kroger and Wal-Mart Super Center, ample commercial development and within the Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District.
It's a good little area," he said. It's grown in the last 10 years."
Currently, Rock Creek offers patio homes selling for $350,000 to $500,000, along with full-size homes from $525,000 to $1 million.
Rock Creek features a gated patio home community specifically for active empty nesters, featuring its own community center.
But residents of all ages are welcome in the community's main areas. Grandparents Connie Abel and Henry Abel have lived near Rock Creek's main lake for 9 years.
It's just a friendly, warm community," Connie said. You feel like it's an extension of the home."
Connie also appreciates the resident activities, from yoga classes to holiday programs for children. There's tons of things going on whether you're 2 or 62," she said.
The Abels lived in northwest Harris County for years before moving to Rock Creek, Connie said. Henry was drawn to the community's large main lake and overall environment.
Now, Connie said, she can't imagine living anywhere else.
I loved where I lived before, but I'm passionate about this place," she said. Probably my favorite part is the entry."
Residents go over a small hill as they enter Rock Creek, Connie said. From there, they have a panoramic view of the community and its water spots. It's my little spot of paradise," she said.
