The latest subdivision that Fry Homes, Inc. has installed in the Uvalde area is called Legend Hills. Legend Hills, a gated community in phase one of development, is located off Highway 83 just north of the Uvalde City limits.
An open-air grand opening is scheduled July 21-22, 2023 for anyone interested in viewing the property.
The open house, set at the entrance to the new subdivision, will begin at 10:30 a.m. July 21 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony conducted by the Uvalde Chamber of Commerce.
Refreshments will be served and tours of the property will be given. Flyers will be available with the purchase price of each lot listed. Door prizes will be handed out to the first ten attendees.
The open house will continue Saturday, July 22 from 9-5. Refreshments will be served and tours given on Saturday as well.
“We would welcome anybody—townsmen, businessmen, people interested in lots,” said Luke Fry, son of Greg Fry and one of the owners of the company. “Everybody’s invited.”
The Legend Hills property is located 1.5 miles down County Road 400, which is 1.6 miles north of the Uvalde City limits on Highway 83 North just south of the Leona River bridge.
The ideal residents for the subdivision would be families and those “looking for an opportunity to live in a gated community just outside the Uvalde metroplex,” said Mark Fry, co-founder of Fry Homes.
The parcel of land to be subdivided, 260 acres in all, was purchased from Anna and Beaumont Watkins in December 2022. Watkins is a former Uvalde County Sherriff, active in the role from 1993 to 2000.
Developing a new subdivision has been in the works for two years for the home builders.
“We did a careful investigation of existing properties,” said co-founder Greg Fry.
“I was the one who started pushing and looking for the subdivision,” Like said. “I went looking for it.”
Phase one of the project consists of subdividing 102.5 acres of the purchased land into 39 lots and five roadways. Each lot ranges in size from 1.12 to five acres.
Five paved roads have been laid, four of which are cul-du-sacs. About half of the lots empty into a cul-du-sac.
The main road, appropriately named Legend Hills, dead-ends nine-tenths of a mile into the development, with the possibility of extending the road into the second phase of development in the future.
Ten exempt residential wells have been drilled on ten different lots, with all lots expected to have reliable water. The wells are dug to 300 feet into the Edwards Aquifer.
“Each lot will have their own well,” Luke said. “We drilled 10 wells scattered across the entire subdivision. It’s verified good quality water.”
“We might share a well with a couple lots,” Greg said. “We’ll sell the lots without the well.”
“The lots are priced accordingly,” Mark added.
Electrical service to each lot has also been installed. Property lines have been surveyed and cleared.
“Phase one is under an HOA (home owners’ association),” Luke said.
“Until 75 per cent of the lots are sold, for a while Fry Homes will be the manager and operator of the HOA,” Mark detailed.
One home, an 1,850 square-foot speculative or “spec” home, is already being erected in the new subdivision. In the framing stage, the home is being built on Lot no. 17, one of the ten lots with a drilled well.
Other spec homes in the subdivision are being planned.
When asked how the name for the subdivision came about, Greg said, “Uvalde is full of legendary characters and we honor those legendary characters.”
As a testament to some of those, one of the existing cul-du-sacs from phase one of the development is named Palomino Hills.
“I’m hoping that Legend Hills can be a blessing to many people for years to come,” Luke said.
“There’s a desire for people to have more security,” Mark agreed. “We want to give people a secure home site.”
Founded in 1991 by brothers Greg and Mark Fry, Fry Homes has been in business for over 30 years. They have built 175 homes during that time and have developed seven subdivisions.
