Final opportunities at the Villas at Preston Hollow by Shaddock Homes in Plano.

The Villas at Preston Hollow by Shaddock Homes fits the description of a “hidden gem.” It’s located in the heart of North West Plano and is only on one single street!

The community is backing to an approximate 50+ acre Plano Park called Heritage Park. Lots of baseball fields and open space. The proximity to Preston Road, Highway 121 and the Dallas North Tollroad just can’t be beat!

The Frisco ISD schools that are currently where the Villas of Preston Hollow feeds into are highly sought after! Riddle Elementary and Fowler Middle School are two of the best elementary and middle schools in the district. Lebanon Trail is the new high school that it is currently zoned.

12 of the 18 lots are Sold, which leave 6 that are available. 1 of those 6 is the stunning Model Home.

Surprising to me, this again is a North facing 4440-C Shaddock plan just like I posted at the other day at the Estates of Shaddock Park.

The flow and sight lines work through the entire house. Shaddock did an excellent job in the room transitions and dimensions. No wonder it’s a model in two of their communities!

In this model that is for sale, they have included the double master (one downstairs and one upstairs) which is a very nice touch!

Another home that caught my eye and is ready to move in today is the popular 1.5 story 4435-A Shaddock plan.

Very nicely done for any one looking to down-size. Very open with larger breakfast area and no dining! Two bedrooms down and one bedroom and gameroom up. Around 2,700 square feet.

Toll Brothers at West Park in Plano selling Phase 2!

I always have buyers ask me about Plano and my answer is always the same for new homes. Either Avignon, which is basically sold out and at a very high price point, or this jewel of a community in an incredible location! 

West Park is the first development on Haggard Farm. The Haggards have been in Plano forever and they are slowly selling their land for development like Brinkmann Ranch recently did in Frisco. 

Phase 2 at West Park consists of 61 lots with Toll Brothers having 29 and John R Landon homes having the other 32. 

Back to the location. It is literally 5 minutes from George Bush so it is ideal for anyone needing to have easy access to both the North Dallas Tollroad or US 75!

They have added a beautiful playground for the kids and have extra open space there which you never see at other playgrounds for kids. 

The Toll Brothers model home for the Villas is outstanding! Look at that WOW factor when you step into the house. Toll does a great job of showing true luxury throughout the home with their attention to every detail. See below.

Extreme Cheapskates on TLC comes to Plano, Texas

I was recently featured as the realtor on the show Extreme Cheapskates on TLC. The O’Briens live in Plano and were interested in selling their house.


First off they had a fence in need of staining or more likely replacing. It was pretty bad.


They used a water bottle with some holes in it for their shower head. Their living room had a bean bag, futon and some folding chairs. Carpet was really bad with stains and also needed to be stretched.


Their baseboards needed a lot of cleaning and the kitchen appliances were very outdated.


The O’Briens were super nice but if they try to put their home on the market in that condition, get ready for low ball offers because that is all that is going to happen!

It was a fun experience though!

Toll Brothers at West Park in Plano selling strong


Plano is a special place for me. I graduated from Plano Senior High in 1997. And the Haggard Farm at Park and Custer was always a special place to Plano residents for as long as I can remember. The silver windmill, hay bales and the crazy looking lamas grazing by the road is what I remember the most about Haggard Farm.


Fast forward 16 years from when I graduated and the Haggard holdout to sell has ended. In August sales for new homes started by Toll Brothers the developer of the new community called West Park.


West Park by Toll Brothers is a 119 acre tract that plans to have 208 homes at buildout. The entrance will have two man made ponds with fountains off of Custer Road. Toll Brothers is also in the final decisions for what the amenity center plans to be. Below are a couple of the top runners for design of the pool and the building.


But I will tell you this, West Park is the last opportunity to build a new home in Plano. And considering the incredible location with access to all 4 major highways, West Park will sell out way ahead of schedule.

For example, when Toll Brothers opened the Estate section this summer on the first weekend the salesperson took 22 deposits!


Currently in Phase 1, there is a total of 75 lots. Toll Brothers has 50 and John Landon Signature Series has the other 25.

Toll Brothers has already sold 7 and has 7 more deposits in the Villas section. The standard lot size in the Villas is 55 wide by 115 deep.


The Toll Brothers Villas start out with the Palladio plan at 2,000 square feet for $391,995. Toll Brothers is also offering other popular plans like the Windsor, Mondovi, Glenwyck and the Normandy. The Balmoral below is one of my favorites and starts at 3,096 square feet for $446,995.


Schools for West Park are Harrington Elementary, Carpenter Middle School, Clark High School and Plano Senior High School. Harrington Elementary has a very special Chinese Emersion Program which is only 1 of 2 in the entire state.

And also there is a STEM school for grades 9-12.

The Villas by Toll Brothers plan for two models that should be completed in February 2014. HOA is $1,200 a year and tax rate is incredible at 2.19%!!!


Toll Brothers is currently offering a $5,000 incentive for their grand opening

“And if you have a deposit or plan to contract soon with Toll Brothers and do not have a realtor, ask me about my 4% Total Rebate for my clients that purchase a Toll Brothers home.”

KHOV selling crazy in Avignon in Plano!


Avignon in Plano has had a rough start. It began as a high end custom community, but not anymore.

Recently Toll Brothers has started selling and they are selling anything and everything they put on the ground. The appeal of Avignon is two things: location and schools.


Everyone has heard how good Plano Schools are, but Avignon is actually the only fantastic location off of Windhaven and a block from the Tollroad with access to anything.

Enter KHOV.

Capitalizing on other custom builders misfortunes, KHOV came into Avignon and purchased the remaining 45 lots.

Toll Brothers developed a second phase of Avignon, and KHOV saw the opportunity to come in and match their unbelievable sales for high end homes.

Here’s the catch, KHOV starts in the $540’s!


Granted the lots are standard in the first phase at 75 wide and 75 deep, but for the location it really doesn’t matter. In phase two they do have some 80 wide by 80 deep lots and a couple oversized available.


Another advantage that new KHOV buyers have is instant equity due to the custom homes all around the lots. I personally know a family that built a home for 1.2 million!


“Since this February, KHOV has sold 22 of their 45 lots! This is an amazing feat in Avignon in Plano!”

They are running a $20,000 incentive for this month and still have some great lots available.

For more info on KHOV or Toll Brothers and to learn about my 4% Total Rebate on a Toll Brothers or K Hovnanian home, call or text Brad Holden at (469) 733-2723.
