In October 2022 Fulshear welcomed its newest resort-style community, Del Webb Fulshear, for residents 55 years old and older. Located at 7733 Lifestyle Blvd. in Fulshear, this community features 725 single-family ranch-style homes across more than 230 acres, and three unique home series: The Scenic, Distinctive and Echelon. While floor plans in each of the three Series have different attributes, they all come standard with upgraded features and the ability to personalize the home with popular finishes and options. Prices start in the upper $200s.

“We are proud to open our third Del Webb community in the Houston area,” said Lindy Oliva, president of PulteGroup’s Houston division. “With Fulshear’s unique blend of rural charm and modern conveniences, excitement has been high for this community. Residents will truly appreciate the many upgraded features within their homes and the resort-style amenities and activities that this community has to offer.”


Featured as one of “Houston’s Most Affluent Communities” by the American City Business Journal, Fulshear is a site of several notable and awarded communities like the acclaimed Cross Creek Ranch. Last year the community was awarded Charitable Project of the Year for its 2021 “Give Back, Build Hope” campaign. Through the initiative, Cross Creek Ranch donated nearly $20,000 to six Fort Bend charities: Abigail’s Place, Brookwood Community, Family Hope, Fort Bend PAWS, Rainbow Room and Texana Center.

A 3,200-acre community, Cross Creek Ranch features a range of homes, community events, sports fields, water parks, ten-

nis courts, a dog park on-site schools, and more than 60 miles of hike-and-bike trails. Because of the opening of Texas Heritage Parkway and the growing retail corridor, entertainment, dining, shopping and employment opportunities are within reach. Cross Creek Ranch also features Bonterra 55+ for its senior residents and the 1,250-acre master-planned community, Cross Creek West which includes 18 home plans and can accommodate more than 3,000 homes. Cross Creek Wes also includes access to a recreation center, pools, trails, waterways and open green spaces.

In addition to lakes, creek and parks, Fulbrook on Fulshear Creek offers a fitness center, competition pool, resort-style pool, Bocce ball court, lodge, an amphitheater and playgrounds. Known for its “lakeside lifestyle,” Fulbrook accesses the scenic Huggins Lake where residents can unwind, walk, jog and enjoy the outdoors.

Fulshear Run, which was named after the scenic creek that flows through the property, offers open spaces, hiking trails, woods, ponds, creeks and parks. The community offers distinctive homes from Partners in Building and Tri Pointe Homes, special events like Fulshear Run Farm and Vineyard Faire, not to mention its impressive tree collection which includes pecan

Last year, Jordan Ranch was named Community of the Year and additionally won Community Amenity Center of the Year-Developer for its Sunset Farm, which was planned and planted by Amenity, a Houston-based company known for its garden and farm designs that emphasize fresh and healthy produce. On the farm’s 1.5 acres are vegeta-

ble plants, fruit trees and berry vines that residents are invited to harvest. Fresh vegetables are always available via the self-serve “Grab-and-Go” cooler that is freshly stocked every day, or visit on Saturday mornings for the weekly Farm Stand. Jordan Ranch also features a playground, fitness center, the Lazy River, tennis courts and will soon offer a dog park.
