Congratulations to Dr. William Rhodes, principal at Robert and Felice Bryant Elementary (one of Cane Island’s outstanding Katy ISD schools), named a Texas National Distinguished Principal Finalist by the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association.  Dr. Rhodes is one of only five school leaders across Texas to earn the honor.

At Bryant Elementary, a culture of kindness can be found in every aspect of the school, from the all-volunteer Kindness Crew and kindness fundraiser to teachers who demonstrate their kindness by building genuine relationships with students.

Kindness does more than just help students respect one another, at Bryant Elementary it gives them the confidence to ask questions and seek guidance without fear or hesitation.

Bryant Elementary’s unique environment is further enriched by an active PTA and the presence of school namesakes Robert and Felice Bryant, two pillars of the Katy ISD community, who routinely participate in collaborative learning activities and share their more than five decades of experience with teachers and administrators.

Cane Island families also attend Katy Junior High School, where teachers uphold a standard of excellence backed by a partnership with parents and community; and Katy High School, where teachers present a well-rounded curriculum, including Advanced Placement coursework, dedicated to the study of languages, mathematics, fine arts and humanities.

  • 2021 Home Design Trends

    April 1, 2021

    READ MORE

    It’s a new year which means it’s time to update your décor or possibly upgrade your home. Whether you are tired of staring at your kitchen after being homebound in 2020 or you’re planning to take advantage of low interest rates in 2021 by purchasing a new home, it’s time to prioritize your wants vs needs and get to decorating.

    There’s no doubt 2020 shaped, or re-shaped, home design trends and forced homeowners to decide what is most important for them. Here’s a look at what home builders and homeowners are looking for in the latest home design trends for 2021.

    Cane Island Home Office

    Dedicated Home Offices

    2020 saw many of our work environments abruptly switch from corporate offices to new, often ill-equipped, work-from-home setups. Now, with many employers allowing employees to work remote permanently, having an adequate home office is more important than ever. In 2021, homeowners are stepping away from the kitchen table and creating a space that fits their 9- to -5 needs. Whether you’re building a new construction home or renovating your current house, an efficient home office, away from the chaos and television noise, is on the top of the list for almost every homeowner.

    You may not be driving to the office every day but it’s still important, maybe more so now than ever before, that homeowners have a dedicated space that allows them to focus during work hours, then shut the office door and seamlessly transition to personal life after work hours.

    Clearly Defined Rooms and Spaces

    Remember when open concept ruled all? While it’s still valued by many, 2020 taught families the value of defined spaces and being able to have their own room for everything from quiet time to studying to working out. Homeowners are now seeking to define spaces, or create nooks within open floor plans, that will easily allow for family gatherings or for family members to step away and enjoy personal time.

    What does that look like exactly? Don’t worry, it’s not tiny rooms within the home that result in a cramped feeling. Instead, it’s unique pockets or loft-style rooms for e-learning, home workouts, lounging, and more. There is such a thing as too much togetherness, or so we found out during the pandemic. These rooms allow for individual hobbies, personal time and work to be uniquely “yours” in a time where that once seemed impossible. Additionally, many new home buyers are looking for more space to accommodate their multigenerational family, giving each member a defined space within the home.

     

    Houseplants and Indoor Gardens

    Last year, people were confined to their home and unable to get their nature fix, emphasizing the importance of the great outdoors. Whether you were staying indoors or taking walks around your neighborhood to simply occupy your time and breathe some fresh air, the benefits of trees and flowers was never more evident. This has led homeowners to want to bring the outside in in 2021.

    This year you’ll see homeowners and those building their dream home, continue to plan around indoor and outdoor gardens, making room for more living plants as well and adding plenty of windows for natural light. Think more zen and monochromatic relaxing vibes to bring the outdoors in!

    Cane Island Outdoor Living Area

    Outdoor Living Spaces

    The pandemic forced families to step back from their typically hectic lives filled with sports practices, vacations and commitments, only to embrace their loved ones and find the same sense of adventure within their home or backyard. To the surprise of many, being at home was exciting and finding new ways to have fun was an adventure in and of itself. Now, homeowners and new home buyers are prioritizing outdoor living spaces that include pools, elaborate playgrounds and outdoor kitchens.

    Outdoor living spaces are creating a vacation-feel without leaving your home and families in 2021 are excited about it. With our larger Cane Island homesites and year-round Texas sunshine, your family will enjoy ample room to build an outdoor living space that will have you saying, “let’s stay home” more often than ever before.

    Cane Island Kitchen Design

    Fun and Functional Kitchens

    Now that families are accustomed to cooking at home, as opposed to the previous default of dining out, homeowners are wanting fun and functional kitchens. It’s not news that the kitchen is the hub of the home, especially for families and regular entertainers. However, many who once preferred restaurants are now enjoying cooking and baking.

    Kitchens are one area of the home where open concept still reigns supreme and that’s not changing in 2021. Novice and professional cooks alike are designing kitchens with top-notch appliances, playing with bolder colors, using luxe finishes while incorporating islands that allow for more storage and gathering space to sit and join the conversation.

    Cane Island Home Design

    Varieties of Texture

    Neutrals are no longer boring in design. This year, homeowners and designers are incorporating more neutrals, such as white, cream, beige and sage green, into their color scheme. If you’re thinking blah, think again! This monochromatic look, coupled with rich textures and natural elements such as jute, rattan, oak or marble, create a luxuriously rich environment while still remaining serene.

    Fear not, color lovers. A neutral room is a great canvas for those colorful pieces you love most, allowing them to pop and make their own statement within the room.

     

    Home Gyms

    Remember when you rushed to make it to the gym on time for your favorite class or stopped by for a quick workout after leaving the office? Thanks to virtual classes, luxury spin bikes with overly excited instructors, and countless apps that bring celebrity trainers into your home (for a fraction of the cost) home gyms are the way of the future. So it’s no surprise that homeowners are wanting a dedicated space for a home gym.

    Sure, a garage is always an option but many new home buyers are incorporating this room into their design and floor plan preferences. While our amenity-rich master-planned community has an on-site fitness center and yoga room, having an in-home fitness studio is a luxury many are opting for in 2021. 

     

    Gallery Wall

    If 2020 and an unprecedented global pandemic taught us one thing, it’s the importance of family. Homeowners are embracing an old classic and creating artful gallery walls that showcase family adventures, sketches, old black and white images, and family keepsakes, paying homage to people who came before, the ones we laugh with daily, and the moments we never want to forget.

    These gallery walls can be elaborate stairwell art or simple designs in guest rooms. Whatever option you choose these walls should be a reflection of your heritage, telling the story of you. Include antique frames with a mix of metal and wooden frames to give an eclectic but intentional design that will have people reading the story of you and your family in a visual book displayed beautifully on your walls. 

    While design trends are known to shift and expected to ebb and flow year after year, 2020 and the ramifications of the pandemic have brought about trends we are excited to see and know that many of our Cane Island families will embrace. From outdoor living spaces to home gyms to the all-important functional kitchen, our Cane Island new home builders can help you create a space that will fit your family’s needs and embrace all the good things that came from a year full of unpredictability.

  • Here’s How to Find The Master-Planned Community That’s Right For You

    January 19, 2021

    READ MORE

    The Houston area is home to a number of quality master-planned communities and with so many to consider, knowing what to look for in an enclave of new homes can help you select one that’s best for your family for years to come.  

    Before you start looking at homes, take in the community’s arrival experience and drive its neighborhoods.  Are there special features that create a unique arrival? Are esplanades and green spaces well landscaped?  Do shrubs and plants at neighborhood entries appear healthy and well maintained? 

    Take stock of amenities for fitness, recreation and entertainment.  In Cane Island, one of west Houston’s top-selling communities, residents enjoy unlimited use of a two-story, 24-hour fitness center, a tranquil yoga studio with hundreds of on-demand classes, lap pool, lagoon-style family pool and cabanas, children’s water playground and central lawn for movie nights, concerts and other events.

    A quality community should offer well-known homebuilders with ample, move-in ready homes and plans to suit any lifestyle.  Plus, homesites should be wide enough to provide sufficient open space and the feel of a larger property. In Cane Island, for example, buyers can choose properties from 50 to 100-feet in width.  The community also offers acreage properties in its exclusive custom home neighborhood, The Estates.

    Finally, get a sense of the community’s lifestyle.  Are there residents out on the walking and jogging paths?  Are families out on the playgrounds?  An active lifestyle community such as Cane Island also is staffed by a full-time, onsite Lifestyle Director who plans events to foster that camaraderie among neighbors.

  • Cane Island Donates Outdoor Classroom Seating at Katy High School’s Tiger Prairie

    November 7, 2020

    READ MORE

    Katy High School teachers and students as well as those visiting the Tiger Prairie now have a comfortable spot to hone their skills in biology, environmental science, art and nature photography thanks to a gift from Katy’s Cane Island.

    The Katy community of new homes located minutes from the school has donated four, large outdoor tables and benches to create a new outdoor classroom setting within the nature-inspired property at the corner Highway 90 and 1463. 

    Situated under a giant live oak on the northeast corner of the prairie property, the new benches are large enough to seat up to 32 students at a time.

    “The tables and benches are a wonderful focal point for the prairie and will be the central gathering area as we conduct lessons,” notes teacher Kelly Knight of the Katy High School Science Department.  “Since each bench seats eight, we can fit an entire classroom at the same time. That’s a big plus.”
    Dr. Rhonda Burrough of the school’s Science Department adds the new, all-weather benches and tables also provide a comfortable spot for residents visiting the property.

    “The Tiger Prairie is not just for Katy High School, it’s for the entire Katy community,” she says.  “We want residents to wander in, sit for a while and enjoy the beauty of a native Texas prairie.”

    The donation came about when the Cane Island development team learned of the Katy Prairie’s needs for tables and benches. 

    “Our families attend Katy High School so we certainly feel a special connection to the prairie,” says Lawren Eckhardt Couvalt, director of marketing for Cane Island.  “We’re delighted to support such a worthwhile endeavor.”

    The native prairie ecosystem at Katy High School was created under the direction of the Katy Prairie Conservancy and the Wildlife Habitat Federation.

  • The Oaks Kitchen & Bar, Cane Island’s Onsite Restaurant,  Adds Private Wine Lockers as Part of New Wine Club

    READ MORE

    There’s good news for Katy-area wine aficionados.

    The Oaks Kitchen & Bar, the popular lunch and dinner spot in Cane Island, has installed a collection of exclusive, climate-controlled wine lockers as part of the restaurant’s new Wine Locker Club.

    Forty private wine lockers with stylish, glass-encased display windows allow club members to store wines purchased from the restaurant at an ideal, 58-degree wine cellar temperature. Each locker’s nameplate also will don the name of their respective member. The new wine lockers are available to the public on a first come-first served basis.

    “They are a wonderful addition,” says Adam Pettit, general manager of The Oaks Kitchen & Bar. “There’s a certain prestige that comes with having your own collection right in the restaurant. When dining, members can request wines right from their locker.”

  • On Record-Setting Pace, Katy’s Cane Island Reports New Home Sales Up 38 Percent

    September 1, 2020

    READ MORE

    Sales in Katy’s Cane Island are up an impressive 38 percent through the end of August as west Houston families flock to the community for new homes offering gourmet kitchens, spacious living areas, flexible home office settings and modern features.

    “The community has experienced year-over-year growth since it opened in 2015, but this is far and away shaping up to be our best sales year to date,” says Lawren Eckhardt, Cane Island’s director of marketing. “As always, our valued Realtor partners are a big part of this growth.”

    Heading into Labor Day, Cane Island recorded 202 new home sales in 2020, up from 146 sales from the same time period a year ago. New homes in Cane Island range from the $280s to custom estates over $1 million.

    “As families spend more time together, there’s a greater emphasis on enjoying all the bells and whistles of a new home, particularly with more professionals working remotely,” she adds.

    Residents enjoy unlimited use of the community’s resort-style Cane Quarter featuring a yoga studio with on-demand classes, two-story fitness center, lap pool, lagoon-style family pool and cabanas, children’s water playground and central lawn.  Cane Quarter also is home to The Oaks Kitchen & Bar, open daily for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Plus, a full-time onsite Lifestyle Director plans community gatherings, outdoor concerts and seasonal events.

    Cane Island’s walking paths, parks and green spaces also are appealing for families looking to spend time outdoors, Eckhardt says.

    The community offers the convenience of immediate I-10 access via Cane Island Parkway, Katy ISD schools, proximity to major west Houston employers and an abundance of nearby shopping, dining and entertainment.

    “Everything a family needs is within or nearby Cane Island – that’s a big selling point,” she adds.

    Go to CaneIsland.com and choose from one or more of the community’s acclaimed builders for current incentives, virtual tours and private, in-person appointments.

    To reach the Katy community of new homes, take the Cane Island Parkway exit off Interstate 10 minutes west of the Grand Parkway.  Head north on Cane Island Parkway and take the roadway directly into the community.  

  • The Estates at Cane Island Adds Cason Graye Homes to Custom Builder Lineup

    August 14, 2020

    READ MORE

    The Estates at Cane Island, the Katy community’s gated enclave of exclusive estate homes, has added the award-winning Cason Graye Homes to its collection of preferred custom homebuilders.

    Named Houston’s Best Custom Builder in 2019 at the Greater Houston Builders Association PRISM Awards, Cason Graye Homes has completed more than 150 custom homes in Katy, West Memorial, Villages of Memorial, West University, Bellaire and other top-selling areas of town.

    “Whenever we had a project in the Katy area, I always made it a point to drive through Cane Island,” recalls Bryan Phillips, president of Cason Graye Homes.  “What always stood out to me was the quality of the amenities, the landscaping, the hardscape and all the things that make the difference in a community.  That’s why we want to build there.”

    Cason Graye Homes has initiated the design phase of its first custom home in The Estates at Cane Island, Phillips adds.  Construction is expected to commence at the beginning of 2021.

    Founded in 2004, Cason Graye Homes offers a curated customer experience with talented architects, trade partners, construction personnel and an in-house interior designer.  A green certified professional builder, Cason Graye Homes performs a green audit on every home it builds to ensure it exceeds the average HERS Index rating, a scoring tool used to measure a home’s energy efficiency.   The company also is a member of the Builder 20 Club, a specialized organization sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders formed to shape solutions to improve the quality of the home construction industry.

    A limited number of acreage homesites remain The Estates at Cane Island, according to Beth Naef, Cane Island’s custom home sales manager.  Buyers can choose from properties up to three-quarters of an acre with dramatic, lakefront views or lush, forested surroundings. 

    “The size of these properties provides buyers with a great deal of flexibility when it comes to designing their home,” says Naef. “Plus, lot owners can build now or build later to allow for maximum flexibility.”

    The Estates at Cane Island also offers new custom homes by Jeff Paul Custom Homes and William David Custom Homes. 

    To reach The Estates at Cane Island, take the Cane Island Parkway exit off Interstate 10 minutes west of the Grand Parkway.  Head north on Cane Island Parkway and take the roadway into Cane Island, then left on Franz Road.

    Go to www.caneisland.com/homes/the-estates to learn more about Cane Island’s distinguished collection of luxury builders, view available custom homesites and custom homes.

    In addition to an outstanding selection of new homes, Cane Island provides the convenience of immediate I-10 access, proximity to major west Houston employers and an abundance of nearby shopping, dining and entertainment.  Cane Island families also receive a challenging, yet well-rounded education at Katy ISD’s Bryant Elementary and at longtime Katy ISD schools Katy Junior High and Katy High School, all just minutes from the community.

    Residents enjoy year-round recreation and fitness at the resort-style Cane Quarter featuring a yoga studio with on-demand classes, two-story fitness center, lap pool, lagoon-style family pool and cabanas, children’s water playground and central lawn, fireplace loft and The Oaks Kitchen & Bar, open for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch.  A full-time onsite Lifestyle Director also plans a variety of community gatherings including movie nights, outdoor concerts and seasonal shopping events.

    To reach the community of new homes, take the Cane Island Parkway exit off Interstate 10 minutes west of the Grand Parkway.  Head north on Cane Island Parkway and take the roadway directly into the community.
