Taylor Morrison Builds Benefit Home in Grand Vista

Terry SwensonBenefit Homes Project

Taylor Morrison is nearing completion of the GHBA Benefit Home in the community of Grand Vista. Not only is Taylor Morrison donating construction management, the company is also donating the homesite in Grand Vista, located on a secluded cul-de-sac.

Each year two homes are built by GHBA builder members for this 42-year-old charity, with donated materials and services. The homes are sold at market value and proceeds from the sale are presented to two local charities, Operation Finally Home and HomeAid Houston. The Project has raised more than $12 million.

Taylor Morrison has built several homes for the project, and this is the second Benefit Home in Grand Vista. The Taylor Morrison-developed community is located in the Richmond area on 600 acres just 30 miles from Downtown Houston. Grand Vista includes 150 acres of parks, open space, and recreational amenities such as two community clubhouses and pools, plus playgrounds for the kids, and it has easy access to the West Park Toll Road and the Grand Parkway. Students who reside at Grand Vista attend highly acclaimed Fort Bend ISD schools. The community offers one- and two-story floorplans priced from the $400s to $600s+.


“The Grand Vista community, an established neighborhood that is home to growing families, is the ideal location for setting down roots,” said Jennifer Keller, president of GHBA. “This community offers homebuyers all the popular amenities and price points that are in demand today. We can’t thank Taylor Morrison enough for donating the lot and the home to the Benefit Homes Project.”

Taylor Morrison is building its popular Dahlia Plan. The Dahlia is a 1,532 sq. ft., one-story home with three bedrooms, two baths and a two-car garage. This home is elegant with a splash of charm while it offers optimal living space for growing families.

An extended formal foyer flows into an open concept gathering room and kitchen that is perfect for family gatherings or entertaining. There is also a formal dining room that is the ideal setting for intimate dinners or grand celebrations. The private owner’s suite is located at the back of the home offering a beautiful retreat with its wall of windows that capture the light, making the room bright and airy. There are two closets that provide plenty of storage for separate wardrobes, a double door entry to the owner’s bath, a vanity with dual sinks and a separate walk-in shower.

“The Taylor Morrison team is excited to take part in the 2022 GHBA Benefit Homes Project,” said Todd Rasmussen, division president of Taylor Morrison. “Both charities will receive valuable funds that will help the homeless of Houston and wounded veterans returning from active duty and their families. We are excited the house will be completed soon.”

Throughout the 42-year history of the GHBA Benefit Homes Project, more than 110 homes have been built with the help of donations.
