From Starter To Luxury: These are the Homes of Gleannloch
Let’s take a brief trip back in time.
Just 70 years ago, Gleannloch Farms in Spring, TX was home to one of the nation’s top horse-breeding programs. Owned by oilman and farmer Douglas B. Marshall, Gleannloch Farms had a reputation for upscale facilities and incomparable horse breeding. Celebrities like Wayne Newton and Dale Evans rode Gleannloch Arabians in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, and other famous Americans like Patrick Swayze and Lyndon B. Johnson purchased Gleannloch horses, wanting the best of the best for their personal stock.
Fast forward: Gleannloch Farms has evolved into one of the most highly-desired modern master-planned communities north of Houston. Many of the original white stables and barns still stand in excellent condition, helping to preserve the timeless farmland feel. With nearly 3,200 homes, Gleannloch is an impressive sprawl of paved roads, grassy fields, playgrounds, equestrian facilities, fishing lakes, churches, schools, and businesses punctuated by The Gleannloch Pines Golf Club, Gleannloch Farms Recreation Center, and Gleannloch Fitness Center.
Essentially, endless hours of outdoor activity await outside everyone’s front door.
With a rich equestrian history and a serene yet active atmosphere, Gleannloch is the standard for master-planned living with all the amenities in Spring. Whether you’re looking for a starter home or a luxurious estate, Gleannloch remains attractive to homebuyers across the board. To prove it, we’re taking a closer look at the incredible range of real estate offered by this North Houston gem.
Stunning starter homes.
9614 Edgeloch Drive, $245,000
For first-time home buyers, nothing beats the blood-pumping satisfaction and pride that comes from holding the keys to their very own home.

From curb appeal to interior architectural details to endless amenities, a Gleannloch starter home makes a stellar first impression (and lasting impression) on even the most hard-to-impress friends and in-laws.

With four bedrooms, two and a half baths, and an expansive backyard (complete with patio), this property would easily cost twice as much in many other areas of the country. Natural light pours through the wall of windows in the vaulted two-story living room to fill the home’s open floor plan with warmth, creating a calm, airy atmosphere. The spacious master bath features a luxurious garden soaking tub, twin sinks, and a walk-in closet that would make anyone’s mother green with envy. In the kitchen, a breakfast bar and gas range provide a cooking, eating, and entertaining area of elevated style and sophistication.
Affordable forever homes.

Once folks move to Gleannloch, they’re hard-pressed to find another neighborhood that competes for their affection, let alone inspires them to sell their home and relocate. Gleannloch is a “forever home” kind of place. And with real estate gems like 1242 Walston Ridge Drive, it’s easy to see why.
Stately yet welcoming, this 2,500 square foot four-bedroom home sits upon a beautifully manicured lot with a spacious fenced-in backyard.

Welcome to the magic of Gleannloch.

DIY dream homes.
9026 Robinhoods Well Drive, $249,000 (Sold)
Though most Gleannloch homes were built in the mid-2000s, there are several that date back to the 1990s, reflecting earlier interior design styles. But we’re here to remind folks that they shouldn’t let a little outdated wallpaper prevent them from pouncing on a beautiful house that— with a little updating and personalization— could easily become their dream home. The older homes of Gleannloch are no less attractive to buyers, as many feature unique floor plans and plenty of nooks and crannies that add to the character of the home.
Take this Robinhoods Well Drive home, built in 1999, for example.
