Cypress, Texas -- Taylor Morrison, a leading builder and developer in North America, has announced that its newest neighborhood at Alder Trails is now open for pre-sales, offering buyers three distinct collections of homes.

A total of 388 new home sites, set in a prime Cypress location, will be offered at Alder Trails. Taylor Morrison will be building its popular Villa Series, Chateau Series and Grande Series of homes, offering 18 different floor plans.

“We’re excited about the wide variety of floor plans and options we’ll be offering at Alder Trails,” said Jim Ellison, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison’s Houston division. “These are beautiful collections of homes that are sure to fit our homebuyers’ needs.”

The Villa Series offers charming homes ideal for Austin homebuyers and those who appreciate the comfort of well-designed homes. The four floor plans include a variety of desirable features, including one and two-story homes, formal foyers and dining rooms, cozy breakfast nooks and open kitchens. The three- and four-bedroom homes, which range from approximately 1,884 to 2,506 square feet, start in the high $230,000s.

Homes in the Chateau Series offer ample space with seven floor plans ranging in size from approximately 2,700 to 3,780 square feet and sophisticated designs that create elegant, praise-worthy interiors. The popular one-story Emerson floor plan offers grand entryways and classic rotundas that lead from formal living and dining rooms to a separate family room, gourmet kitchen and breakfast nook with a sweeping, open floor plan, allowing friends and family to spend time together in an upscale yet casual environment.

The seven floor plans in the Chateau Series offer three and four bedroom configurations, two- and three-car garages, and a variety of options including guest suites, media rooms, game rooms and extended covered patios. Prices start in the $330,000s.

Taking after its name, the homes in the Grande Series offer seven elegant one- and two-story floor plans ranging from approximately 3,280 to 5,080 square feet. The distinctive characteristics of this series are exemplified in the Brantley floor plan, which embraces the series’ sophisticated style. The Brantley boasts six bedrooms with options for a second and third master suite complete with private baths and ample walk-in closets. This floor plan greets visitors with a two-story foyer and formal living and dining rooms as well as offering a kitchen featuring an elegant, open floor plan, and an extensive first floor master suite. The second floor delights homebuyers with a private bedroom with an attached playroom and a nearby media room. Three additional bedrooms (two with private baths) a den and a game room are also included.

Planned amenities at Alder Trails include a resort-style pool with splash feature, covered picnic pavilion, playground, and two beautiful lakes with walking trails.

“Alder Trails will be a community you’ll want to come home to,” Ellison said. “With a great location like Cypress and the innovative floor plans that we have available, Alder Trails will be the kind of community people will want to call home.”
