Clear Lake City
Amaster-planned community composed of several neighborhoods and subdivisions, Clear Lake City is located about 20 miles to the southeast of Houston along the main portion of Clear Lake, after which it was named. Clear Lake City is considered the second largest master-planned community in the Houston area after Kingwood. Founded in 1963, the city has grown and evolved well with time, populated mostly by NASA employees during the early years. Today, homes in the Clear Lake City communities are still highly sought after properties even after more than 50 years, mainly in part because of its excellent location, outstanding schools, quality amenities, and easy accessibility to larger metropolitan centers in the Greater Houston area.
