The People Make the Community: Bonterra at Woodforest

When shopping for a new 55+ Houston home, it’s easy to get too caught up in the square footage, curb appeal, countertops, flooring, storage and so on. While this stuff is important, the real secret for finding the best age-qualified new home community in Houston is to focus not on the physical residence but the lifestyle you can expect to live there.

How will you spend your time? What amenities does the community offer? Do they match your hobbies and interests? What clubs and activities are available?

And perhaps even more importantly, what kind of neighbors will you have? What sort of people does the community attract? Are they like you? Do they aspire for active-living and love to live, laugh and get the most out of life like you do?

In this post, we’d like the share two real-life stories from residents at Taylor Morrison’s beautiful active-adult community in Montgomery, TX. You’ll see the kind of people who live in the community and love the lifestyle that Bonterra at Woodforest offers.

Would you fit in?

The Bonterra Bluebird

You can tell a lot about a person from the type of car they drive. Are they adventurous? Cautious? Flashy or full of energy?

When Connie Knox rolls into the neighborhood, it’s clear at first glance that she’s vivacious and loaded with spirit. She’s painted her car front to back with colorful birds and a gorgeous flower wreath. The beautiful artwork puts a smile on her face, just as it does for her neighbors at Bonterra, too.

In fact, Connie’s so proud of her Bonterra Bluebird that she even entered her car in the 32nd Annual Houston Art Car Parade. Ask how they did the next time you see them parked around town.

The Bonterra Rough Riders

At Bonterra, life isn’t just what happens inside the community. The full-time Lifestyle Director coordinates all sorts of thrilling adventures and excursions and fellow residents do, too. And when the Tour de Houston was set to return, the community cycling club just knew that they had to participate.

The Tour de Houston Presented by Apache is a fundraising bike ride that benefits Houston’s Reforestation Program. It’s an annual event and a unique way to explore the city on two wheels. The cycle route dips and winds its way through Houston’s historic neighborhoods, scenic districts and parks. To make the event more accessible, there are three different length options, ranging between 20 and 60 miles.

At the end of the race, there’s a big post-ride party in Hermann Square at City Hall. Riders enjoyed free food and drink with a backdrop of fantastic live music played by local musicians.

Think you could hang with the Rough Riders? Grab your helmet and get peddling. You’ll be in shape in plenty of time to take to the road for the Tour de Houston in the spring of 2020!
