Star Trail in Prosper is located a half of a mile off the Dallas North Tollroad and is absolutely stunning!

From the drive up to Star Trail to the beautiful Star Trail Community Center it is a top-notch development that really makes home owners feel at home!

Huge amenity pool with a park connected then add in the two tennis courts, you really have great amenities here.

Along with Highland Homes, you have other high-end builders like Coventry Homes and Toll Brothers so the look of the homes also add to the beauty of Star Trails.

Highland Homes has a popular one story called the 292 and one will be ready in the October timeframe. Their sales have been so hot that all of their available inventory have been sold!

Above is a 292 that will be closing soon but you can get a great feel from my pics and video at the beginning of the blog.

The 292 is a 3,593 square foot one-story with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths media and a 3 car tandem garage.

The standard lot size for Highlands homes is 86 foot wide by 135 foot deep! THATS a lot of land!

Wow! Highland Homes inventory home at the Grove in Frisco is amazing!


It’s not everyday I find an inventory that is absolutely stunning on the outside and the floor plan matches, but I did today!

This Highland Home at The Grove in Frisco has easily over $150k in upgrades! They put so much in the front elevation and the walk up I really can’t believe it’s still sitting here.

It is Highlands model home called the 615-G. 5 bedrooms, 5 baths with 2 half baths!

Cathedral ceiling in the family with accent cedar beams. Colors through the house are very consistent with the modern look.

Huge covered patio with an oversized backyard that is FLAT!

Master bath is laid out excellent, not too big and the space is used perfect. Master is oversized with bay windows. Upstairs is 3 bedrooms with game room and media. Butlers pantry and a planning desk are placed perfectly. Extensive hardwoods throughout the first floor and all carpet is upgraded! Even the front door is super high end and the time spent on the walk up would be many many hours! It really helps make the drive up appeal that much better. At 4,266 square feet they have lowered the price and the opportunity is there for a buyer to come in and get an incredible deal!

Quick Update on the Lagoon at Windsong Ranch! Wow!


The Lagoon at Windsong Ranch is well underway! The last time I saw this it was all undeveloped land with some water and that was only like 8 months ago.

Windsong Ranch is a huge master planned development in Prosper. Many new builders have purchased lots due to the success like Shaddock Homes, Huntington Homes, Toll Brothers and Mainvue.

The Lagoon is 5 acres and is going to be the first of its kind with 3 white sand beaches with kayak rentals. It’s truly an amazing amenity that no other development around here can compare to.

There is a viewing platform where I filmed from that would blow anyone away seeing this in person.

Who wouldn’t want to live in a community with a Lagoon?

For more info on the builders in Windsong Ranch and the incredible Lagoon, text or call Brad Holden today at (469)733-2723.

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.”
