Be it due to difficult economic times, demanding work schedules, or cultural preference, multi-generational living has been on the upswing over the last couple of years. The number of buyers looking for houses in Spring Texas with mother-in law suites, separate entrances, living quarters over the garage, and/or 2 bedrooms have continued to increase.
Builders have acknowledged the demand for multi-generational living and have begun to offer multi-generational housing in some of their newer communities in the Spring Texas area. In section 4 of Lakes of Cypress Forest, Darling Homes built their model home to showcase their new multi-generational housing option. The 2 story model home has a 3 car garage, 5 bedrooms with 3 bedrooms on the first floor, and 5 full baths. Located on the first floor, the in-law suite resembles an efficiency apartment. The in-law suite has a private outside entrance into a large living area with a kitchenette and connects to a spacious bedroom and a full bath. The in-law suite can also be accessed through one of the home’s interior doors.
Another example of a multi-generational housing option in Spring Texas is being offered by Lennar in Auburn Lakes. The in-law suite is accessible via a hallway from the one car garage. Although the in-law suite doesn’t offer the true privacy of comings and goings as the floor plan offered by Darling Homes in Lakes of Cypress Forest.
Only time will tell how multi-generational housing will do in the resale market. But with the ethnic diversification of the Spring Texas area, future demand for multi-generational housing should be strong.

We chose Jill Wente as our buyer's agent and she provided knowledgeable, top-notch service. We decided to go with a new build, which we had never done before, and Jill guided us expertly through the process. We were in the old location for much of the time, but Jill updated us regularly on the progress of the construction, sending photos and checking on anything we had questions about. She even took the time to go to the Design Center with us. Jill's knowledge, service-focused attitude and credentials add up to excellence at work for you. read less
