About Castlegate II
The Castlegate neighborhoods are split up with Castlegate and Castlegate 2, this distinction grows out of Castlegate being the original housing development plan and Castlegate 2 being the expansion project. Both of these neighborhoods are wonderfully located with Castlegate just off of William D. Fitch Parkway, and Castlegate 2 can being easily accessed by Greens Prairie Road West and backing up to Wellborn Road. The neighborhoods are also just 5 miles southwest of Texas A&M University and can easily be access by a short drive down Wellborn Road.
Living up to their name, both of the Castlegate neighborhoods have a prevalent old English theme with the “castle-like” architecture seen in some of the homes. This 800+ housing development of Castlegate is a master planned community built by J. Wendt & Associates in 13 unique phases, while the Castlegate 2 portion is being continually expanded by builders such as David Weekley and Omega Builders, who can build a custom home in the neighborhood in 5-6 months. The houses in the neighborhoods typically hold 3-4 bedrooms with anywhere from 2-5 full bathrooms in home sizes ranging from 1,500 to over 3,500 square feet. Many of the beautiful homes in the neighborhood are highlighted for their amenities, with a few homes having granite countertops, spacious bedrooms, and gorgeous fireplaces. Though the two neighborhoods are side by side, the amenities of each neighborhood differ.
The neighborhoods are full of lush greenery on greenbelts that line their private roads, with jogging trails winding through it, ponds, and a beautiful central park in Castlegate. The Castlegate Park is open for residents to enjoy its two lighted tennis courts, three ponds, basketball court, picnic tables, gazebo, shaded playground. However, Castlegate 2 has its own state of the art, resort style pool and splash pad open for its community. In addition, there is a 4-acre lake stocked for fishing.
If the neighborhood amenities themselves are enough to capture your attention, these neighborhoods are also conveniently located near to shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities because of their access to both Wellborn Road and William D. Fitch Parkway! Both Castlegate and Castlegate 2 share the closest school system of College Station ISD, both being in a close distance of Forest Ridge Elementary and Spring Creek Elementary schools. Also, there is a close proximity of these neighborhoods to the Baylor Scott and White Hospital!
