Introducing Perry Homes at Lilyana in Prosper ISD


Perry Homes has just put up their sales trailer and are starting Pre-sales at Lilyana.

Adding to Lilyanas list of luxury builders there is Perry Homes, Highland Homes, David Weekley Homes, Village Builders and American Legend Homes.

Lilyana is a huge masterplanned development and still in its first phase.

“But Brad, why would I buy in Lilyana vs. Mustang Lakes?”

Good question. When comparing the two on the “PID/MUD” issue, Lilyana is only a PID, so in the long run it will go away.

As for Mustang Lakes, they have a MUD and that stays attached to the house forever.

Enough about PID/MUD talk, Perry Homes is from Houston and has started building here in DFW under the Britton Homes name and now bringing in Perry Homes.

Perry has over 300 floorplans that you can build, which is absolutely a crazy feat just to make it through them.

Perry Homes has inventory homes already planned and are building in the 60 foot wide lots with David Weekley. In the 50’s you have Highland and Village Builders and in the 74’s you have American Legend and Village Builders.

All 5 builders are top notch quality and that will make for an absolutely gorgeous community.

Side note: American Legend has a 3,400 square foot 1 story model that is laid out so well for one floor. See below.

“Lilyana has a lot going on with the amount of builders so feel free to call or text Brad Holden at (469)733-2723 for a tour of the development or a sit down discussing all the builders options.”

The Grove in Frisco is full of Amenities.


The Grove at Frisco has opened to pre-sales for American Legend Homes, Highland Homes, Southgate Homes and Drees Homes.

But for now, the amenities there really stand out and are going to have a big impact on The Grove. Above is a padded turf area inside the Orchard House which is the Amenity Center for the development.

The Orchard House is a modern farmhouse with a cafe and bakery, Fitness Center, Meeting Room, Great Lawn with Pavillion and Playground, Pools and a splash pad.

The pools are really cool as a step down separates the two by a waterfall! There is also connected grills for parties and gatherings at the pool.

On top of the amenity Center, the city of Frisco has 8 acres planned in the Grove for a city park. The playgrounds are nature inspired and really adds a beautiful touch replacing the normal green metal structures.

Add in above a very large dog park and below with a perfect kiddie size soccer field.

Current plans are 25 acres of open space including 5 parks! In the city park area plans are also for a catch and release lake.

The developer did a great job making sure that the Grove will definitely have outdoor amenities that every other community lacks.

They are actually also constructing a “Hammock Park” which is seen below and is a really cool feature you do not see in luxury communities in Frisco.

There will be 4.5 miles with even more planned.

Builders

All 4 builders are selling a lot!

Above is an updated list that the developer passed along to me, but it changes every day and every hour.

There is one home complete that I REALLY like a lot!

This Highland Home is a 4 bedroom, 3 full baths and 2 half baths. It’s 4,116 square feet.

What I really like is the media room is off the kitchen living room on the FIRST FLOOR! It’s smart and very functional!

There is a beautiful planning desk strategically placed in the hallway going to the master bedroom. The kitchen has a gorgeous waterfall island and the Master Bedroom has a huge extension.

It’s definitely a great home and ready today. It is priced at $758,525, but you will be SHOCKED at what their bottom line is! Call me if you have any interest at taking a look.

American Legend has these two above that are also ready to go as well!

Whitley Place In Prosper is the most beautiful development in DFW


Whitley Place in Prosper is easy to find and very, VERY hard to leave.

With an abundance of large mature trees, rolling hills, 4 ponds, and Wilson Creek running through it, Whitley Place beats every neighborhood in Prosper for beauty! (My pictures do not do it justice.)

In 2008, the visionary Dale Clark of Warren Clark Development, purchased the 320 acre Whitley Place development in Prosper. He purchased three parcels of land to maximize the vision for the 540 lot development.

The first large piece was the Whitley land owned by John and Agnes Whitley, hence the name Whitley Place. While the other major parcel was owned by Doyle Stacey(which was how Stacey Rd. in Plano and Allen got it’s name). The third parcel was 16 acres owned by Grace Presbyterian Church.

Why Dale Clark is the mastermind.

In the 1980’s Dale Clark was a very well known custom builder and responsible for many of the high end meticulous North Dallas homes. His father was legendary developer Warren Clark.

His signature custom home was huge, elegant homes built close to green belts. So I’m pretty sure with all of that experience he knew that Whitley Place would be a home run.

His other well known and very well laid out developments include:

The Meadow at Montgomery Farm – Allen

• West Falls Village – Frisco

• Lawler Park – Frisco

• Parkside – Prosper

• Westwyck Hills – Southlake

• Coventry Manor – Southlake

I am a huge fan of Parkside the gated community in Prosper as well but it’s smaller with around 161 total lots.

Whitley Place is located at the corner of Custer Road and 1st Street. It’s two minute drive to highway 380 with all kinds of new retailers and conveniences. It also provides quick access to Preston and the Dallas North Tollroad for easy access to a work commute.

Aside from the beauty, I love the fact that the streets are winding, the amazing lot sizes, signage through the neighborhood is very tasteful and the borders of the development are filled with the best greenery and trees I have seen.

Most developers put landscaping around the borders, but this amount shows the importance of looks and value blocking out power lines and roads that Dale wanted to incorporate.

The smallest lot size is 80 feet wide by 125 deep. This helps the look and feel tremendously while driving through the community.

The builders who were chosen to open the community were Darling Homes, Highland Homes and Huntington Homes.

Currently, the builders are Drees, Highland and Huntington. And a few custom builders selected to build out the large estate lots like Ron Davis Custom Homes, Tim Jackson Custom Homes, Sanders Custom Builders, and J Parker Custom Homes.

Drees Homes is in Close-Out with only 8 lots, a model Home and 12 inventory homes. They are running a 90th anniversary sale that will end July 31st.

Highland Homes is also close to close-out with only 3 lots available and 8 inventory homes left.

Huntington Homes has 1 Lot and 4 inventory homes available.

“If you are looking at moving to Prosper and for a new home, Whitley Place is definitely worth the drive. Text or call Brad Holden today at (469)733-2723 for a tour of the community or more specific details on the builders and inventory at Whitley Place in Prosper.”

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!

Star Trail in Prosper has its Grand Opening with Highland Homes, Toll Brothers, Britton Homes, American Legend and Coventry Homes.


Star Trail in Prosper has been MANY years in the making but is finally here. The Developer, Blue Star Land, a company owned by Jerry and Gene Jones family of the Dallas Cowboys Football team, purchased the property about 20 years ago.

Star Trail is strategically located in Prosper less than a mile of the Dallas North Tollroad extension that is still under construction. There is a tremendous amount of retail coming on Highway 380 and the North Dallas Tollroad such as Frisco North, the Matthews Southwest tract and right down 380 is the Gates of Prosper.

Star Trails entry is absolutely gorgeous. They left it completely open and have a large man made pond to the left with fountains. Drive about a 300 feet and in front of you is the 5 acre Star Trail Amenity Center. Here you will find a community clubhouse with party rooms, large outdoor lounge area with TVs, three pools including a stunning pool, leisure pool and a children’s pool.

There are also two party pavilions complete with grills and outdoor dining tables, a one acre children’s play park with picnic tables and two lighted tennis courts seen below.

Starting in the 76 foot Lots is Britton Homes and Toll Brothers Homes.

Britton Homes

Britton Homes is fairly new to DFW, but clearly not new to new Home construction!
