Established Country Place is a Soothing Place 55+ Community Near the Gulf Coast and Features Brick Homes on Quiet Lanes
Between Houston and the Gulf Coast in southeastern Texas, pleasant Pearland is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. It is also the location of Country Place, a gated and guarded 55+ community with nearly 850 single family homes, patio homes and town homes.
Country Place was built by U.S. Homes between 1981 and 2000, and it has a soothing suburbia ambiance. Neighborhoods feel solid and established, with tidy lawns, short and tall trees, quiet lanes with no sidewalks. The one story brick homes sit close to one another, and garages face the street. Residences have two to three bedrooms and two baths, and most have a view of the lake or the golf course. Some dwellings still have an early-1980s feeling, while others have been upgraded with designer finishes.
Home prices begin in the high-$100,000s. The HOA is $170 per month. Please check with a Realtor to verify these prices as they may change.
Amenities are not on par with some newer 55+ developments, but Country Place homeowners do enjoy the newly renovated, nicely manicured Country Place Golf Club. It has 18 holes, a new design and winds throughout the community.
An attractive carriage house serves as the community clubhouse and is where residents gather to socialize and engage in a variety of activities, including bingo, card games, book discussions, exercise classes, painting classes and others. Residents also enjoy a swimming pool, tennis courts, an exercise room and a library.
Outside of Country Place's gates and just down the road, the Pearland Town Center is a "lifestyle center" and stands out as a model of mixed use design. It is home to Dillard's, Macy's, Ann Taylor, other national retailers and eateries.
The historic Pearland city center has been revitalized and is now the site of the year-round farmers' market. The Pearland Arts League's Corks and Canvas events showcase local artistic talent. Housed in the Pearl Theater, the Pearland Theatre Guild is also an active member of city's cultural community. Pearland manages a variety of dog parks and people parks, and the nearby Brazos Bend State Park includes six fisherman-friendly lakes.
Pearland does not have a hospital, but Houston, just 10 to 15 miles away, has several medical centers, most of which are accredited by the Joint Commission.

Two Spanish explorers in the 16th and 17th centuries were the first Europeans to visit this area and settled near El Paso in 1682. A French colony also existed for a time at Matagorda Bay. Americans started to settle at the edge of the Brazos River in 1821. Mexico, recently independent from Spain, controlled Texas at this time.
The American settlers eventually rebelled against Mexico and fought for their independence in the Texas Revolution (1835 to 1836). Legendary battles included San Jacinto and the Alamo. The U.S. annexed Texas in 1845, and the Mexican-American War began in 1846 as Mexico fought to keep Texas.
The U.S. captured Mexico City in 1848 and ended the war. The subsequent Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo not only kept Texas in the U.S. but gave the Americans ownership of California, half of New Mexico, most of Arizona, Nevada, Utah and parts of Wyoming and Colorado. Texas has been a part of the U.S. ever since.
The Lone Star State is the second biggest in the country in size, after Alaska, and it leads every other state in the production of cattle, sheep, oil, as well as cotton. Geography ranges from arid, flat plains in the west to the thick piney woods in the east.
Texas also boasts 100 state parks, the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, the Alamo and Big Bend Mountains National Park. In September, 2017, one of its major cities, Houston, received 51 inches of rain during Hurricane Irma.
What are the Benefits of a 55+ Development?
Developments designed for the 55+ crowd offer a lot of benefits. The main ones are security, plenty of recreation opportunities and a sense of community with people of similar backgrounds, but the benefits do not end there. Nearly all 55+ single family home communities, particularly newer ones, have single story homes, whether single family homes, town homes or condominiums. No more having to go up and down stairs all day long. Many have a homeowners' association that take care of the exterior maintenance, including mowing the lawn and shoveling the snow. Others have rental programs so that if you decide to go on vacation for six months, the association will find a qualified renter for you. There are even communities that will, for a monthly fee, provide meals, housekeeping and 24/7 emergency services.
