If you have been looking for a country home in a scenic area, close to Amarillo, your search is over. Only 15 miles from Amarillo (less than 20 minutes away), the Canyons is a development that could be just right for you. (Click here to see a map of how to get to the project.) The Canyons is located on part of the 15,000 acre Currie ranches in Randall County, Texas. Homesites will overlook Palo Duro Canyon from the west cliffs above Lake Tanglewood. The Canyons will consist of 1700 acres of canyon breaks.Over 200 acres are designated as Greenway for walking, hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. Many of the spacious lots allow stabling of horses. Equine trails include challenging, rough canyon country as well as flat prairie expanses for a variety of breathtaking rides. Private, paved roads allow bicycle enthusiasts miles of riding opportunities. Hiking and running trails cover terrain that ranges from level land to canyon cliffs.
Paved Roads connect the development to Washington Street just south of where Washington crosses Palo Duro Canyon. The development is a gated community. The private streets are paved and lie within expansive 80 foot right-of-ways. Underground utilities including natural gas are provided. Schooling is through the Canyon School District. Lower property taxes are an advantage. The lots vary in size from 2.0 acres to 12.0 acres and the price of the lots depends on the quality of the view and the nearness to the Palo Duro canyon. There are several lakes on the property including one large playa lake near the development entrance. Each lot owner will provide his own water well and septic tank. All current wells (one at each home) produce large quantities of high quality water. (click here to see a map of the project.) Each owner will receive insured title to his purchased lot.
This development is for the person who wants a quiet escape from urban living, therefore motorcycles and other loud vehicles are not allowed in The Canyons. Emphasis is on the developers' determination to preserve the natural beauty of the land, therefore vehicles are not allowed to operate off-road. Nature lovers will enjoy the plentiful deer and other wild game that freely range on the development land. Restrictions in the land convenants insure that you will know what to expect next door to your property and enforcement will be closely monitored by the developers. The Canyons is to be the area's premier community.
