Developers plan new luxury subdivision for Cedar Creek Lake


David Webb is a veteran journalist who has written for the mainstream and alternative media for three decades. He is now a freelancer who lives in the Cedar Creek Lake area.

The Kaufman County Commissioners Court approved a preliminary plat on Jan. 3 for a new luxury subdivision on the northwest edge of Cedar Creek Lake in Precinct 4.

The new subdivision will be called Edgewater, and it will sit on 250 acres. Lots for 145 homes are planned, according to the developer Cedar Creek Preservation LLC.

The subdivision will be accessed by County Road 4042, which is also kown as the Tolosa Road by residents of the area. The Tolosa Feed Store sits at the intersection of County Road 4042 and State Highway 274.

Lakeside lots will sell for $200,000 each, and interior lots will be priced at $60,000.

The subdivision roads will be maintained privately as is the case with many other luxury subdivisions in the Cedar Creek Lake area.

The county made significant repairs to County Road 4042 about a year ago after it became so riddled with potholes that residennts could not drive on it. Tolosa residents confronted the Commissioners Court about the roads, and Precinct 4 Commissioner Jakie Allen subsequently ordered repairs to be made.

The road also leads to the Baker Cemetery.
