Active-Adult Land Developer Launches Serenity Communities by Gracemark Homes

Local real estate professional Adrian Jacob is launching a new company aimed at developing intimate, active-adult communities for those age 55 and older — Serenity Communities by Gracemark Homes.

This is Jacob’s second venture into the active-adult model having worked as president of WoodFalls Development Group, developer of award-winning Villas at White Oak Ranch in Conroe.

“There is a real need for more active-adult communities, particularly in south Houston,” Jacob said. “Our Serenity Communities will offer homes designed for mature active adults and designated exclusive amenities on a scale that encourages a sense of community.”

The first Serenity Community by Gracemark Homes will be in Meridiana, a master-planned community located along the Highway 288 corridor in Iowa Colony. With a gated entrance, Serenity at Meridiana encompasses more than 45 acres and will have 144 homesites.

“Our focus will be on developing exclusive, more intimate neighborhoods that will make it easier for like-minded individuals to get to know each other and enjoy the active carefree lifestyle that they desire,” Jacob said.

Pre-sales in Serenity at Meridiana are expected to begin in October with two model homes opening in the second quarter of 2021. Gracemark Homes will be the exclusive builder, offering eight home designs priced from the low $300,000s to the upper $400,000s. The floor plans offer two and three bedrooms, open concept living and generous covered patios.

Residents of Serenity at Meridiana will enjoy a private clubhouse with a pool, pickleball and bocce ball courts, as well as access to amenities enjoyed by all Meridiana residents. A lifestyle director will keep Serenity at Meridiana residents busy with a variety of activities.

“Also, HOA dues cover front yard maintenance allowing for a lock-and-leave lifestyle for residents who travel extensively,” Jacob said.
