Grand Harbor to Change Names

The copper Grand Harbor name plate, which just went up a couple of months ago, has just been taken down off the new rock sign at the main gate. The new name will be North Star Pointe – an Inland Management Corp.property. I’m not sure how they came up with the name, but most of the lake lots and lake view lots will be facing south or south east. According to press reports, everything else will remain the same including their overly repressive restrictions. For more history of the evolution of this new gated community see our archives. For those interested in the restrictions, please read the archives dated May 17, 2005. For detailed information on gated communities, in general, check out Community Association Facts at http://cafacts.blogspot.com/

The rumor mill has been on positive spin ever since Mr. John Femrite bought the land from the Boy Scouts last year in a deal that raised quite a few eyebrows. For unknown reasons, Femrite recently sold GH in early August. For months and months GH/NSP employees have been dutifully dropping hints that more and more lots have been sold. I heard last week that all of Phase 1 had been sold out. This week I heard that they sold over 400 lots. That’s interesting when you consider that Phase 1 only has194 lots. The rest of the phases haven’t been developed yet. As a matter of fact, no one is living in North Star Pointe yet. What’s even more interesting is that if you paid close to $100K (or more) on a lot, wouldn’t you drop by to see the development’s progress from time to time? Where are all these new lot owners? Where are the lookers?

On a positive note, our own neighbors in El Lago and Cozy Cove, builders (Mr. Jeff Wilkes and Mr. Stacey Allred), have contracted to complete the two spec homes started by GH. Wilkes and Allred have built beautiful quality homes in Aurora.

North Star Pointe is located on the gorgeous, heavily wooded, rocky, rolling hills of the North West side of Lake Bridgeport – actually up the Trinity River. To find North Star Pointe, take Hwy 1810 west from Chico to CR 1745. Take a left on 1745, right on CR 1744, left on CR 1736, and right on CR 1734. Follow 1734 to the gates on the right. Yes, it’s out in the bad road boonies (wilderness) and you can estimate that it’s almost a 2 hour drive from the DFW metroplex (on a good traffic day). But once you get here you are going to be impressed with the remote beauty of this rugged land!!!
