Cambridge at Prairie Pointe in unincorporated Ingleside is a neighborhood with a new look.

When the original builder ran into financial difficulty, Cambridge Homes stepped in, breathing new life into a community that already had a good plan, says Richard J. Brown, chief executive officer of Cambridge Homes.

Cambridge also reworked plans for the 5 1/2-acre park site. It will include a tot lot, a small basketball court, a sand volleyball court, soccer field and picnic area.

Besides the park site, the wooded community has natural conservation areas and will include walking paths.

The development has eight plans, priced from $184,990 to $218,990, which provide from 1,572 to 2,475 square feet of space.

As modeled, the $211,990 Meadowlark looks like a country garden in spring highlighted by flower arrangements and bunny figurines. Painted furniture and stencils add to the country feel. Colors used are royal blue and yellow.

The $196,990 Easton also is modeled. …
