Find the right floorplan for your family and source design inspiration at Empire’s newly-opened model homes at Lago Mar. Showcasing two distinctive collections, the Classic Series and Signature Series, the homes are stylishly appointed and replete with upgrade options. This 2,033-acre master-planned community is located off Interstate 45 South in Texas City, offering residents a well-connected, amenity-rich lifestyle.

The Elora model is part of the Signature Series and features four bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a two-car garage. Affordably priced from $311,000, this spacious, single-story home touts a formal dining room, island kitchen, and a great room with an optional fireplace. 

Designed with a contemporary, coastal aesthetic, the 2,204-square-foot model imagines the fourth bedroom as a home office with plenty of natural light and an adjacent powder room. The owner’s retreat is located at the far end of the home for added privacy and boasts an expansive walk-in closet.

The luxurious ensuite bathroom is outfitted with a double vanity, private water closet, drop-in garden tub, and a separate, glass-encased shower. Other notable features of the home include an efficient laundry room, optional covered patio and a welcoming front porch.

Part of the Classic Series, the Wilcox model consists of three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and 2,120 square feet of living space. The home exudes an organic, boho feel with warm wood flooring and rattan furnishings. The two-story floorplan is priced from $315,000 and comes with available options such as a three-car garage, fireplace and covered porch. 

The kitchen is anchored by an oversized, granite-topped island with breakfast bar seating. Expertly crafted cabinets with crown molding and adjustable shelves are paired with contemporary pendant lighting. The GE appliance package comes in a slate finish and includes a gas self-clean range, built-in microwave and energy-saving dishwasher.

The owner’s retreat is located on the ground floor, along with a convenient laundry room and mudroom. Upstairs, there’s an open-plan game room, two secondary bedrooms, and a shared bathroom with a door to divide the double vanity from the toilet and bathtub/shower area. Add an optional fourth or fifth bedroom to make the most of this flexible layout.

Empire’s homes at Lago Mar are in a brand new, resort-style community with beautiful outdoor spaces and curated resident amenities. Experience the 12-acre lagoon with white sand beaches, waterside dining on the boardwalk, and a 3,000-square-foot clubhouse. Future attractions include a 70-acre entertainment district with an onsite amusement park, incorporating a miniature railroad, go-kart track, outdoor ice-skating rink, midway-style boardwalk, an outdoor entertainment venue and much more. 

Lago Mar lies within the highly-regarded Dickinson Independent School District, which features 13 campuses and an “A” rating from the Texas Education Agency for financial accountability. The schools are well-known for their arts, music and athletic programs.
