Cardiff Ranch Real Estate Guide | Cardiff Ranch Homes For Sale

Cardiff Ranch Katy TX Real Estate Guide

Located some 3 miles south of Interstate 10, the new construction master-planned community Cardiff Ranch is known for its beautiful, affordable homes.

One of the newest communities in Greater Katy, Cardiff Ranch treads a similar path to its bigger neighbors, Cinco Ranch and Cross Creek Ranch: great community amenities, award-winning schools, and beautiful homes.

  • BEAUTIFUL AND AFFORDABLE HOMES: Cardiff Ranch real estate is made up of single-family homes. Some homes in the area sit right by the community’s lake. Cardiff Ranch is also within Katy. Katy’s real estate market has been one of the best performing suburban Houston neighborhoods over the past one, five and ten-year periods.
  • HIGHLY REGARDED SCHOOL DISTRICT: The Katy ISD features some of the best schools in the Greater Houston area and has been given a Met Standard rating by the Texas Education Agency.
  • LAKE COMMUNITY WITH GREAT AMENITIES: Cardiff Ranch homes are built around the community’s 13-acre lake. Other community amenities include a club house, a swimming pool, walking trails, a playground and tennis courts.
  • TOP RANKED SUBURB: Nestled on the southeast corner of FM 1463 and Corbitt Road, Cardiff Ranch is a relatively small master-planned community with wandering streets and cul-de-sacs. The neighborhood is within Katy, one of Houston’s Best Suburbs.
  • NEAR RETAIL AND ENTERTAINMENT: Though mostly residential, the community is minutes away from restaurants, bars, cafes, and stores, especially those along FM 1463. Major retail centers like the LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch and the Katy Mills Mall are within a short drive away from Cardiff Ranch homes.

Due to the small number of homes listed on the market, the Cardiff Ranch market can be challenging to navigate. Contacting the best Cardiff Ranch realtor can benefit homebuyers looking for great recommendations and advice.

Cardiff Ranch TX History

The Greater Katy area was once made up of farms and cattle ranches. This early history is apparent in the names of the master-planned communities around the area today: Cinco Ranch, Cross Creek Ranch, Pine Mill Ranch, Silver Ranch, and Cardiff Ranch.

Much earlier, the area now known as the city of Katy used to be called Cane Island, named for the creek that ran through it. Sometime in the 1890s, the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad started operating in the area, bringing growth into the small settlement.

A few years later, James Oliver Thomas filed a post office application, in which he called the small town Katy. Railroad officials had called the railroad “the KT”.

Other developments led to further growth in and around the city of Katy, including the completion of Interstate 10, the booming oil industry, and Houston’s housing boom.

Cardiff Ranch is one of the newest master-planned communities in the Greater Katy area, with homes completed between 2010 and 2015. Like neighboring communities, Cardiff Ranch offers great amenities, highly rated KISD schools, and affordable homes.
