New Community in Quaint Ennis Boasts Old-Fashioned Fun with Old-Fashioned Value


As the old saying goes, bloom where you’re planted. Well, then, how about planting yourself where the state’s official blooms are? That would be Ennis, the “Official Bluebonnet City of Texas,” as the state legislature designated the city in 1997.

Today, Ennis is also home to a new Lennar community. With new homes for sale in Ennis, TX, Bluebonnet Estates reflects the charm of Old Texas, while providing top-shelf, contemporary features today’s homebuyers desire.

Three spacious floorplans in the community’s Watermill Collection showcase Lennar’s hallmark open-concept design that gives each home an expansive and airy feel. Likewise, every new home includes such features as built-in GE® appliances and quartz countertops in the kitchen and baths.

Indeed, at Bluebonnet Estates, Everything’s Included®. That’s Lennar’s generous package of standards other homebuilders consider add-on “features,” passing those costs on to you.

What else is included? Value. Nowhere else in the Metroplex could you find prices for new homes like these—homes priced at a level of affordability that you used to see when life was simpler … just like the lifestyle the 19th-century railroad town nurtures and cherishes.

For instance, where else could you go to the drive-in movies, like the Galaxy Drive-in, or a drag race, like the Texas Motorplex? Both are less than 12 miles from Bluebonnet Estates.


The community also lies virtually around the corner from Ennis’s dozen parks. Amenities include athletic fields, trails, and pavilions and seemingly endless acres of green space. The largest, Rotary Park at Old Lake City, boasts a splash pad. For water lovers, Lakes Clark and Bardwell, with boating, fishing, swimming and picnicking, are less than 4 miles from home.

Throughout the year, Ennis packs in plenty of family fun. For 70 years, the city whose motto is, “The bluebonnet spirit of Texas, has played host to its marquee Bluebonnet Trails Festival. Forty miles of mapped driving trails take you on a tour of the springtime blooms.

Other festivities include the National Polka Fest, attracting as many as 50,000 people—the largest such event in the U.S.; the Freedom Fest, with a parade, carnival and fireworks; Blues on Main, featuring a dominoes tournament, line-dancing lessons and old-time market; October’s Haymaze and Pumpkin Patch in October; and many more.

You’d think such a world as this is too far away from modernity. In fact, everyday conveniences, such as grocery stores and major national retailers, are at your fingertips. Still, Ennis’s charming downtown, with its hip eateries and homegrown shops, is within 3 miles of Bluebonnet Estates. Ennis ISD’s top-ranked schools are also just minutes away.
