Towne Lake, in Texas, near Houston, is opening for sale 27 half-acre lots in its custom-home section of the community called Great Oaks, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Great Oaks requires a 4,000-square-foot minimum build, and home owners can select a custom builder from Towne Lake's preferred builders or present their own builder for approval. Home owners have the option to purchase the home site of their choice today, and hold it for up to two years before starting construction.

The gated neighborhood features large oak trees and wooded seclusion. Builders include Ravenna Homes, Drees Custom Homes, Ashton Woods, Village Builders, Partners in Building, Princeton Classic Homes, Chesmar Homes, Plantation Homes, Newmark Homes Houston, David Weekley Homes, Coventry Homes and Trendmaker Homes.

"Great Oaks offers the unique ability to get a large, half-acre lot with all the amenities of a master-planned community," said Jon Harper, custom home sales director at Towne Lake. "You can have Cy-Fair ISD schools, wooded seclusion and lakeside living all in one."
