SECRET and GATED Parkside development in Prosper might be best find in 2018!


I see a lot of new developments and I can clearly see a difference on if the developer is spending money to do it right, and Parkside at Prosper is 100% one of those communities and the best kept secret in Prosper.

Parkside is not too big or even too small! It’s a total of 161 lots with 4 of the best Builders in DFW: American Legend, Highland, Drees and Huntington.

As you head North on Coit you might miss it like I have before. Huge mature trees line Coit and then an opening appears with a smaller than normal development sign Parkside.

Nothing wrong with this at all because clearly, Parkside residents know what they have and don’t want to let everyone know!

Only the 4th gated community in Prosper and pretty centrally located within the city.

Why Parkside matters?

The topography of Parkside is unlike many neighborhoods in DFW. It’s not flat land but has hills, parks, trails that really gave my drive through a welcoming feel.

The two ponds in the middle are such a nice touch to be a focal point and I’m pretty sure will create community. Something that most new home developments lack for the past decade.

Lot sizes. American Legend and Highland homes start off at 80 foot wide lots and 135 foot deep. And they are the lower end options!

Larger lots in a community not only make visual appeal better but help keep value up as well.

Then bringing in Drees Homes in the 90 foot wide homesites and Huntington at the 100 foot and 150 foot wide sites, you just can’t go wrong.

Along the northern border in red, there are even 1/2 acre homesites to be claimed.

The HOA is around $1,600 a year due to gates, ponds and maintaining the beautiful green areas which is normal.

But there was one think that blew me away here. It was the Drees Plan Model called the Elmsdale.

Drees did a WHOLE LOT OF RIGHT on this model! Exterior is gorgeous with a swing garage.

Its a wow factor opening the large door to a sightline to the backyard patio.

Staircase curved with beautiful colors of plates. Something I have never seen was a laundry room like this.

From the location, built in cabinets, island with room for sitting and folding, space for extra fridge, connecting to master closet and location for doggie bath, I would put this laundry room up against ANY builders in DFW.

I never thought a laundry room could blow me away like this.

The Lucurious Kitchen has cabinets galore and even has a prep room where you can hide all your large appliances but have easy access to them when in need!

Beautiful 2 story family with beams and Juliet balcony.

Master bath set up nicely with freestanding tub, double spouts on the shower and to die for closets.

Upstairs includes 3 rooms with 3 baths and media/gameroom side by side.

I was leaving and thought if this plan had an extra bedroom down, and what do you know, It was tucked back practically unseen throughout the first floor, but there.

Also, the outside had a pool bath that was extra large and only a foot to outside for guests. Brilliant.

Yes, I was pretty blown away at Parkside in Prosper with only 161 lots, Gated and 4 top builders, but I’m pretty sure you would be too!
