Matthews Southwest Announces Land Sale of 178 Lots in The Tribute to Meritage Homes

(The Colony, TX) Matthews Southwest announced today that Meritage Homes has acquired 55 acres of land in The Tribute Lakeside Golf & Resort located in The Colony, Texas. Meritage plans to develop 178 homesites over the next three years in The Tribute’s newest neighborhood, called Stonehaven, just south of Lebanon at Boyd Road.

“We are pleased to add Meritage Homes to our family of builders at The Tribute,” said Jack Matthews, President of Mathews Southwest, the developer of The Tribute. “This is the first land sale that we’ve made at The Tribute and we were careful to select a builder that we felt would bring beautiful, fresh designs to a gorgeous piece of land. Potential homeowners will love how they incorporate authentic architectural elements with the timeless European styles in the community.”

Meritage will introduce two new collections of homes in the community that will bring together old world architecture and wide-open contemporary living spaces.

“We’ve created these elevations specifically for The Tribute,” said Stephanie MacLean, President of the Dallas Division for Meritage. “The European architecture and new floor plans with courtyards and covered patios will exemplify the high-quality standards and outdoor living that The Tribute is renowned for. Our extreme energy-efficient homes reflect our concern for the environment and its resources, which is in perfect alignment with The Tribute. Our Stonehaven site is surrounded on three sides by open space and waterways and will allow us to offer many premium homesites. We couldn’t be more excited about being a part of The Tribute family!”

English Tudor, French Eclectic, English Cottage, and European Eclectic styles will be featured. The homes have been designed with gourmet kitchens, spacious master suites, comfortable living areas, and beautiful fireplaces. The houses will also feature the latest energy efficiencies such as spray foam insulation, CFL lighting, and ENERGY STAR appliances. Stonehaven will range from 2,000 to 4,000 square feet and will be priced from the low $300s to the mid $400s.

Meritage will be joining Highland Homes, American Legend Homes, Grand Homes and Reflection Homes as well as the community’s custom builders Belclaire Homes, Sanders Custom Homes, Southgate Homes, and M. Christopher Homes.

Meritage will break ground on the lots in January with models expected to open in early 2015.
