Introducing Rorick House. The first great destination coming to Elyson
Friday, April 29, 2016
Now under construction at Elyson, Rorick House will be a centerpiece of the community’s grand opening in Fall 2016.
As the first of three major amenity centers planned for Elyson, the Rorick House will be a major focal point of resident life. It will include a resort-style swimming pool with a beach entry, lap lanes and lounging shelves. It will also have a clubhouse with a fitness center and gathering spaces for meetings and special events.
Other highlights of Rorick House will include a playground and tot lot, an event lawn with a stage, and a large patio area with dining tables and a fireplace. Rorick House will also have a full-service café, the Rorick Kitchen.
Located across from Elyson’s first model home village, Rorick House will also function as the community’s official homebuyer information center.
The Rorick House will overlook the first of many scenic lakes and waterways planned for Elyson. It will also include a trailhead to the first segment of the extensive planned trail system.
The original architecture of the Rorick House will offer visitors a taste of the vision for Elyson as a community that celebrates the nature and history of the Katy Prairie. The architecture is inspired by elements of the Prairie and Frank Lloyd Wright styles, reinterpreted for today using materials, colors and other influences that are unique to the Katy Prairie.
Finally – why the name, Rorick House? The Rorick family owned a large part of the 3,642 acres that have become Elyson. We’ll have more on the Rorick family – and the family behind the name for Elyson – in a future post.
