Taylor Morrison and Darling Homes Unveil Seven New Model Homes During Grand Opening Celebration at Avalon at Riverstone

HOUSTON – Taylor Morrison and Darling Homes, two leading Houston homebuilders, are celebrating the debut of seven new model homes at the highly acclaimed master-planned community Avalon at Riverstone.

The builders plan to celebrate the grand opening with seven days of luxury including a home tour that offers the latest trends in home design and a chance to win luxury prizes from March 30 to April 5.

“It’s luxury times seven,” said Amy Rino, president of Darling Homes’ Houston division. “For seven days, homebuyers can visit seven new model homes and register for luxury prizes.”

The new homes are the latest additions to the existing collections from both builders in the Sugar Land community. Darling Homes will debut three new luxury model homes while Taylor Morrison is showcasing homes from its 60-foot Chateau, 70-foot Legacy, 80-foot Inspired and patio series.

“We’re excited about the new models as each one is distinct, and uniquely designed to fit the needs of Houston homebuyers,” said Jim Ellison, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison’s Houston division. “Each of our collections offer thoughtfully designed interiors, plenty of living space and a host of options for maximizing the potential of each home.”

The Marseille, a part of the Legacy Series, features a grand foyer that showcases a spiral staircase and opens into an oversized dining room that’s lined with columns and is completed by a butler's pantry. The master bedroom offers options to fit every home buyer’s needs including two bay window options and a fireplace. The second floor includes three bedrooms, two baths, an oversized game room with optional deck and a movie room. The Marseille offers approximately 4,057 square feet of living space, with prices starting in the high $500,000s. 

The approximately 5,315-square-foot Portofino, part of the Inspired Series, features a private front courtyard that give way to the main entry of the home. Once inside, homebuyers are greeted by a spiraling staircase that flows to the open dining room and an open conservatory area, perfect for social gatherings. The master suite includes an extended sitting area and a bathroom that features a whirlpool tub, bay window and a large walk-in closet. The Portofino is priced from the low $700,000s.

The three collections join a suite of patio homes at Avalon at Riverstone that range from 2,315 to 3,161 square feet and include up to three bedrooms, 2.5 baths in both single and two-story home designs. Prices start in the high $300,000s.

Darling Homes’ first collection of luxury designs features homes on 55-foot wide home sites that are priced from the $430,000s and include approximately 3,600 square feet of living space. The collection’s model home boasts approximately 3,281 square feet of luxurious living space featuring a private owner’s suite, game and media rooms, gourmet kitchen, optional extended patio and three-car garage.

The next Avalon at Riverstone collection from Darling Homes offers 70-foot-wide lots priced from the $510,000s with up to approximately 4,300 square feet of living space as well as a wealth of amenities including game and media rooms, outdoor living spaces with custom fireplaces, exterior summer kitchens, walk-up attic storage and private guest casitas perfect for entertaining.

The final collection offers Houston homebuyers expansive 80-foot-wide home sites with stunning amenities including gated porches and courtyards, master suites, walk-in closets, balconies and more. The 5,018-square-foot model home allows homebuyers to experience the beauty of a larger home site with luxurious extras such as a private guest casita.
