It is a good location and bella terra is right across from Cinco Ranch. Westpark will soon be extended out starting later this year and is going to do great things for that neighborhood and anything going out toward Fulshear.

We used to call it "Lakes of HELL-a-terra" because any builder that went in there died and lost money. That was a few years ago however, and that whole area is picking up big time...along with Long Meadow Farms. They also changed the product mix which went over well. They started with high end Village, Weekley...etc. Now it's the cheaper big box builders in there and it's selling well. I still wouldn't buy a high-end home in there though...just my opinion.

Both are nice communities and if gated is important part in your decision then i would go with Lakes of Bella Terra.

I have been in Bella Terra for a little over a year. We selected LOBT because we liked the community feel of the neighborhood and liked they way most of the houses looked. I also liked being close to Katy and Westpark Tollway. There is a lot of development going on in the neighborhood right now. I have heard that they have picked up some new builders too. Some of the really good builders left years ago. We don't have any safety concerns here and we are not even in the gated section.

Safety?

Would I leave a laptop in my car unlocked? No, but that's pretty much anywhere.

Would I walk my dog at night? Yes, even a Yorkie.

Any neighborhood with $400K+ homes is going to be safe.
