Other Areas

There are a number of other communities in northern Montgomery County.  Here are just a few:

Willis

The City of Willis is a growing community about 8 miles north of Conroe. It is at the crossroads of Interstate 45 and FM 1097 which traverses Lake Conroe. 25 miles north of Willis is the City of Huntsville, home of Sam Houston State University, my husband’s alma mater. While still in the Texas Piney Woods Region, the terrain becomes more rolling as you progress toward the Willis area. West of Willis includes many lake subdivisions such as Point Aquarius and Seven Coves that were included in the above Lake Conroe section. As you drive north or east, you encounter a rural feel with many small and large acreage tracts available.

Panorama Villiage

The city of Panorama Village was originated in 1964 and is comprised of 660 acres with a golf course.  It is a heavily wooded subdivision just minutes away from I-45, shopping and restaurants. It has a number of homes built in the 60’s and 70’s and has newer homes as well.

The Woodlands

The Woodlands is by far the largest master planned community in Montgomery County. It is comprised of a number of villages with a variety of price ranges. The Woodlands includes a large amount of office space, shopping and entertainment. It is primarily on the west side of I-45 starting in the southern most reaches of Montgomery County. Its location and park-and-ride facilities make this one of the best areas to live and commute to the Houston job market.

Imperial Oaks

Imperial Oaks is a 1400 acre master planned community east of I-45 in South Montgomery County. The master plan devotes over 100 acres to recreational facilities, including greenbelt trails, swimming pool, tennis courts, soccer fields, t-ball fields, playgrounds, nature preserve and clubhouse.

Other communities

The above list includes many of the major subdivisions. But there are other areas you may be interested in as well. Like the cities of Shenandoah, Cut and Shoot, Dobbin, Splendora, Oak Ridge North, Magnolia, and New Caney. Or the vast areas in between which include many large tracts of property for the prospective rancher or developer. Give me a call at 936-537-1656 as the possibilities are endless…
