Introducing Saxony Homes (a Shaddock Home Company) at Estates at Rockhill in Frisco & Frisco Crossing! 

Saxony Homes in Estates at Rockhill

Saxony Homes Model at Estates at Rockhill in Frisco.

Saxony Homes at Rockhill Estates in Frisco had a Model Grand Opening for Realtors today. It was very educational to see what the overall plan is for the Estates at Rockhill and we heard it straight from the developer! (Nice touch Saxony/Shaddock*Homes)

Note: Saxony Homes, is a uniquely designed series by Shaddock Homes, built for new home buyers who want a taste of luxury and fine craftsmanship, at a surprising price point!

“Same builder, lower prices!”

The Location of Estates of Rockhill is in North Frisco. 

The new development is in the city of Frisco and Frisco ISD Schools. The Estates of Rockhill currently plans for with 374 homesites in 3 different phases. 

The first phase will be a total of 161 lots with currently Saxony Homes and Village Builders.  Saxony Homes plans to start 15 inventory homes in the upcoming months! 

As I always like to explain to out of state buyers and even first time buyers, the absolute best time to purchase in a new neighborhood is at the beginning. The difference in the phase 2 prices and even phase 3 prices will be many thousands higher. Always has been and always will continue to be the same when buying in a new home community here in Frisco, Texas.

The amenities for the Estates at Rockhill plan to include a community pool, a creative play structure, multiple parks and a hike and bike trail. The developer is hoping to have the Amenity Center done by the end of September. 

Why the Estates of Rockhill matters. 

Its simple. I know you have heard of the term “walkability.” Now whether it’s a real word or not . . . I really don’t know. But basically it is a factor in Real Estate based off of where you can walk to retail, shopping, restaurants etc. 

The walkability for the Estates of Rockhill will most likely be the BEST of any community in Frisco! No joke! Here’s why. 

United Commercial Development purchased around 83 acres and is developing Frisco Crossing

Frisco Crossing is directly North East of the development separated with the large amount of green space. 

Plans for Frisco Crossing will be everything retail you could possibly want!  Frisco Crossing plans for a space with 4 very unique features. There will be green space, a water feature with restaurants with outdoor patios and a new food truck park! (Like current Frisco Rail Yard below)

Frisco Rail Yard

Now, in commercial developments there are always changes. But I feel really good that there will not be too many considering CVS and Central Market have already CLOSED on their spaces! That’s a very big deal! 

There is also a high end movie theatre planned! Frisco Crossing sounds like a place where others will drive to but residents of the Estates of Rockhill can actually walk! 

Now back to Saxony Homes. The model gives you a feel of many current trends and a look that really appeals to what most buyers are looking for. See below. 

Saxony includes a choice of high quality products that a lot of builders do not see the the importance as an option like the handles, doors and rectangle sinks below. The plan feels much larger than it actually is and really incorporates quality products and design.  

As of today, there are five inventory homes that range from around 3,372 square feet to 4,050 square feet almost ready for move in! (See below)

“Overall, the Estates of Rockhill in North Frisco is such an opportunity to be in an absolutely amazing neighborhood with a builder that will give you a luxurious feel at the absolutely lowest price in FRISCO!”

Prices start in the $420’s!!! Wow! That was a truly shocking number that I would have never guessed!

Inspiration Development in St Paul (Wylie) has some serious Potential for an Amazing Community by Lake Lavon!

  Inspiration Development in St Paul, Texas truly has what most people are looking for in today’s hot housing market! Located right on the border of Wylie, Inspiration is a new community in St Paul, Texas situated on 593 acres adjacent to the historic town of St Paul. 

 In the pictures above, you notice the proximity to major highways like 75 and George Bush is a big appeal for new homeowners. And the fact it is situated almost a half mile a way from boat docks to Lake Lavon, really will fill a void to many out of towners or relocations when making their final decisions on where to purchase. (Lake Lavon is one of the largest lakes in Texas!) 

There is also a 32 mile hike and bike trail around Lake Lavon which will be easily accessed by Inspiration home owners! 

  Inspiration truly might have the most beautiful drive up with an entry, waterfall sign that at night has laser beams shooting out of it! And the two large ponds with a beautiful greenish blue water also help differentiate this development from any other in the North DFW area. 

One very unique feature that everyone will notice is Inspirations 86 foot span of distinctive metal arches and stone pillars! (Which also has laser beams!) 


Inspiration plans to have a 10,000 square foot resort style community center that will feature multiple pools, a bath house, outdoor pavilion, playground and open play fields. It is planned only 300 feet from Lake Lavon to capture beautiful Lake Views!

  In a way, it looks like they plan to incorporate a lot of Windsong Ranch look with the buildings and blow Richwoods out of the water with the size of that Pool! I am also told there will be multiple pools throughout Inspiration. 
 Inspiration will have an on site Elementary School named George W. Bush Elementary that is already underway and will fall within the Wylie School District. (See below)

  Currently Inspiration will be at Akin Elementary, Bill F. David Intermediate, McMillan Junior High and Wylie East High School. 
  Current plans for Inspiration is a buildout of 1,400 homes. That’s VERY big! Currently, they are in Phase 1 but towards the end of available lots! 

  Here’s a very important part, THE BUILDERS!

I am pretty impressed with the line up that Huffines Development put together for Inspiration. 

You have some very important builders like K Hovnanian Homes (KHOV), Highland Homes and Meritage Homes in the section with standard lots at 60 wide by 130 deep! 

Highland Homes has around 15 spec homes in different stages that plan to be ready in various upcoming months. 


All 3 builders first purchased 40 lots and are almost completely out! 

  And those are some pretty deep lots for that price point! Which means backyards will all be a very nice size! 
  Then on the larger homesites you have Saxony Homes (Basically Shaddock Hones) and a newcomer Mercury Homes. 
  Saxony Homes (Shaddock Homes) brings it at usual, showing why they have a corner on the luxury market with their design and floor plans. 
  The larger lots are located to the left as you enter from the Parker entrance. 

For all of you State Farm relos, Inspiration couldn’t be a better fit with its location and amenities to the new headquarters! You should definitely take a look! 


“NOW . . . for my clients that purchase a new home in Inspiration, I will not only get them the bottom dollar deal whether it’s a spec home or build job, but I will also contribute $7,000 of my commission for you to use for a price reduction, closing costs, additional upgrades or cash at closing!”   
You will not find a better deal out there from any other realtor! My connections run deep when negotiating and the builder will not give you a better deal if you do not use a realtor. ASK THEM! 

Text or call Brad Holden today at (469) 733-2723 if you plan to write a contract at Inspiration or have questions about Inspiration, the builders or any other community in DFW.
