About April Sound
Some of the most sought after residential real estate in the Houston metropolitan area is located in April Sound. The neighborhood is situated on about 1000 acres on the south shore of Lake Conroe and about 50 miles from Houston. In the 1970’s April Sound began as a country club weekend getaway for the affluent from Houston.
Today, it too, like many of the neighborhoods in and around Houston, offers championship golf and tennis facilities in addition to all the water activities and pleasures, excellent schools, and plenty of shopping opportunities.
One thing of note about the area is the increasing income base that is generated from the very attractive business environment that Houston offers. Couple that fact with the excellent school districts in Montgomery County that offers top-notch education to the children of the area, and April Sound becomes very inviting as a place put down roots.
April Sound homes lie within a picturesque gated community and offer a fully staffed professional security department that monitors the entry and exit, as well as patrolling the area in cars. Within April Sound are amenities such as a golf country club, fine restaurants, a marina, parks and tennis courts, a fitness center and swimming pools.
The Civic Association of April Sound
Designed as a resort-style area for retirees and weekenders, April Sound’s sudden growth in the area suggests a trend of more families migrating to waterfront homes. The Civic Association of April Sound is constantly working to maintain the natural beauty and security of April Sound. Its mission is to engage in beautification and recreation projects that will enhance the quality of life for the residents, and improve the property values so that April Sound homes remain attractive to residents.
April Sound has a Country Club that features 27 holes of golf for all levels of players. The club offers twelve tennis courts, some covered, and a workout facility as well as a boat launch, swimming pools and a conference center for business meetings, and recreational and kiddie parks.
The Civic Association is responsible for the landscaping and hanging baskets along the Boulevard which make the entrance to April Sound homes so inviting. In partnership with the Property Owners Association and the Country Club, they organize and sponsor several events such as the Fourth of July and Christmas Golf Cart Parades, Easter Egg Hunt for the kids, an annual golf tournament, and a special dinner-dance event.
For all the amenities one could want available within its secured gates, you can't beat April Sound homes when you consider making your home in this area!
