Houston’s Largest Home Tour Features 3 Montgomery County Communities
HOUSTON, TX – Artfully decorated model homes, rousing community events and selfie-worthy pop-up art will offer inspiration during “Houston’s Largest Home Tour” in April.
Throughout the month, 13 Johnson Development Corp. communities — including three in Montgomery County — will open hundreds of model homes and available homes for sale daily. Hours are 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 6:00 p.m. Sundays. Admission is free.
“Around the city, there will more than 150 model homes to explore and in Montgomery County, there will be nearly 50 models open,” said Christen Johnson, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Johnson Development. “Beyond the homes, though, we will have a huge variety of pop-up art perfect for family photos or that Instagram-worthy snap. The tour is really about inspiration, both in home design and feel-good artful moments.”
From crawfish to barbecue to giant art installations, the three Montgomery County communities — Grand Central Park, Harmony, and Woodforest — will be offering numerous reasons to visit during April, Johnson said.
Grand Central Park, a 2,046-acre master-planned community in Conroe is inviting the public to Brews & BBQ April 13 at 715 Camp Strake Road.
