According to the Houston Chronicle, the home site in the NorthGrove community just north of Houston that was donated by Toll Brothers is now hosting construction by Chesmar Homes. The home is a charity effort launched under the Benefit Homes Project banner that will benefit HomeAid Houston and Operation Finally Home. The resulting effort will conform to Chesmar's Mesquite plan.

“For Toll Brothers, it’s a great honor to contribute to the Benefit Homes Project for its meaningful cause,” said David Assid, Toll Brothers Houston division president. “It is evident by the tremendous success of the Project, that it truly makes a profound difference in our community.”

The community design celebrates and elevates the natural beauty of the area that is a lush 12,000-acre park and trail system. It is one of Texas’ premier destinations for hiking, biking, canoeing, fishing and playing and is the perfect setting for a broad range of amenities.

There are 200-plus acres of preserved green space, hike and bike trails, natural waterscapes, luxury outdoor gathering spaces, three community lakes and a 7.5-acre recreation center called The Retreat. This center gets its name for the 9400-square-foot clubhouse that is a contemporary lodge design featuring numerous amenities such as a pool, a 24-hour fitness center, flex space for community classes, a children’s playroom, and indoor and outdoor entertaining areas.

Chesmar is building its 2,746-square-foot Mesquite plan, a two-story design featuring four bedrooms with a fifth bedroom/study option, three full baths, walk-in closets, a game room, an island kitchen and a two-story open family room off the kitchen.

Each year, two to three homes are built for the Benefit Homes Project, with donated materials, labor and services by GHBA members. The homes are sold at market value and proceeds benefit the two local charities. The Benefit Homes Project has raised $11 million since it began.
