Rising Lake Levels!

With a record setting drought this year, lakes across all of Texas have greatly suffered. Richland Chambers was no exception as it fell eight and a half feet at its lowest point this year on December 3rd. With the lake level at 306.31 feet, that was the lowest the lake has been since 2006! Luckily, a good bit of rain here and there has accompanied the winter season and we have gladly welcomed the rainy days. The month of December has yielded 4.71 inches of rain pointing us in a direction out of this drought. This brings the total rain for 2011 to 49.86 inches so far.

The November and December rains have helped to refill all of the stock tanks, small lakes, creeks, etc. around the area so it appears that the lake will receive more run off in the next rains. You can visit www.corad.org for more information on this. As of today, the lake is 7.67 feet below the full pool of 315 putting the current level at 307.33 feet. This means that the lake has risen almost a foot in less than one month! This is good news across the board and we hope to see this pattern continue. If you are interested in keeping up with lake levels, check out our Richland Chambers Lake Levels page here:




Until next time, hoping for more rain and wishing you all very a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the team at REMAX Lakeside Dreams and Northshore Harbor Condominiums!

What kind of condo are you looking for??  With six different floor plans, chances are that we have the one you want, and the best part about it is that they are ALL waterfront! Looking for something affordable? The two bedroom, two bath Windjammer is the one for you. With 1,216 square feet of living area plus your own private lanai this unit is one of the best waterfront deals on the entire lake! Starting at $159,900, it is our most inexpensive unit and they won’t last long at this great price!

If you need something a bit bigger than the Windjammer but still want a good deal, the Mariner is a wonderful option. Starting at $179,900 for a first floor unit, it is 1,502 square feet and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and its own private lanai. With its nice wide open spaces and great floor plan, the Mariner is the best value that Northshore Harbor has to offer and has the lowest price per square foot!

Looking for something even more spacious? The Yachtsman unit is a fantastic use of space with an open floor plan that perfectly flows. Its big picture windows allow for amazing views making this unit one of the best wide open waterfront residences on all of Richland Chambers Lake!  Even better, this floor plan is offered in two variations. The first, starting at $234,900, is a two bedroom, three bath with a study that opens into the foyer. The second option starts at $239,900 and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Each unit totals 1,804 square feet of living space and have their own private lanais looking out over the third largest lake in Texas.

The last two floor plan options are called lockout units and both feature two front entrances and a hotel suite type door. This gives you the option of creating an efficiency type residence on one side that could be used for privacy or leasing purposes. The first of these two floor plans is the Catamaran which starts at $209,900 and has 1,653 square feet. With a total of three bedrooms and three baths, you will still have a full two bedroom, two bath residence with its own private patio even after closing off the efficiency. The second lockout floor plan, the Outrigger, starts at $184,900 for a first floor unit and has a total of two bedrooms, two baths, its own private lanai and 1,431 square feet. Now how’s that for some affordable maintenance-free waterfront options?

Construction Update

Construction is moving right along here at Northshore Harbor Condominiums, quickly turning this great waterfront dream into a reality! Our excitement is continuing to build with the progress of construction as we are able to get an actual idea of the layouts of floor plans, the incredible views and the general waterfront experience these condos will provide. Just last weekend around sunset, we crawled through the construction, up several ladders and scuttle holes to the fourth floor where we made our way to the biggest floor plan available, the Yachtsman. As you can see in the photo below, the views are breathtaking and almost indescribable. This great unit faces west and looks into the sunset and over the Shores Peninsula—an incredible view.

Here’s the latest construction update. The roof trusses were put up with a Sky-Trak lift only last week and they already have the entire frame and deck of the roof in place! They are currently putting on the felt which only leaves the shingles before we have complete roof! The stairwells are also being built, with the first floor stairs already in place. The electricians, plumbers, and the HVAC guys have also been hard at work. Between them and the guys working outside, the condo site is busy every day. The plumbers have completed the rough-in up through the fourth floor including bathtubs and shower valves, the HVAC rough-in is under construction on the fourth floor, the electricians are finished on the first two floors and are working on the third and the waste water treatment plant is underway. Wow, there is a lot going on!

At this rate, construction will be complete before we know it. Come see us while we are still offering pre-construction pricing, free stainless steel upgrades and free washers and dryers! Stop by our Lakeside Dreams office during the week, or just come on down to the condo on the weekend for tours and more information!
