BREAKING NEWS – Toll Brothers pulls out of Edgewood in Frisco and Shaddock Homes will be newest builder!

Edgewood in Frisco has been the number 1 selling community for sales in the past 6 months. Currently Toll Brothers, Southgate and Meritage have been the builders but things are a changin’.

Shaddock Homes is in my top 5 for quality and price in DFW! They will come in and take some of the 55 foot wide by 120 foot deep lots and be sharing them with Southgate.

Shaddock will definitely bring in their proven plans since they have been around for 50 years in DFW.

On top of Shaddock coming into Edgewood, I’m a little biased but feel that it is zoned to the number 1 Elementary School in Frisco called McSpedden Elementary.

McSpedden has had the best scores in the district for a couple years in a row in FISD academically. The staff is always on top of everything and teachers are elite! The PTA every year is also so involved and help in so many ways!

The environment even with parents Of the students is outstanding with a bagels and coffee Emotional support gathering after drop off for school today for the first day of school back.

The currently zoned schools for Edgewood for middle school is Lawler Middle School and high school is Centennial High School which all 3 campuses are all nearby and walkable!

Toll Brothers and Southgate Homes at Edgewood in Frisco breaking records on sales!

At Edgewood in Frisco, Toll Brothers and Southgate Homes have sold a total of 21 homes in only a couple months!

Is this surprising to me? Absolutely not! Edgewood did take a little longer than expected to get going, but now they are rolling!

The reason for its tremendous success is a pent-up demand for a quality product with pricing that is favorable to buyers. On top of that, the location is amazing!

Toll Brothers is well known nationally for what you get. It’s extremely luxurious and their designs are more like a custom home builder.

Southgate Homes started as a custom builder and has expanded into neighborhoods with almost an identical game plan but on a smaller scale.

The owner Jay Hankla was previously with Shaddock Homes and in a way I feel he has put his own touches on top of the Shaddock look.

The Southgate model home has a downstairs media room which is one of the top wants from most buyers I speak to.

I do like that Toll Brothers Lots are all in the same area as well. They are building only on the 55 by 120 lots and start in the high $400’s at 2,171 square feet.

Above is their model called the Rochester and WOW, it’s worth a look even if you already have a home! It flows so well that it’s hard to spot any issues with the floor plan whatsoever! The Rochester starts at $564,995 and 2,997 square feet.

Toll does have two plans that also offer a second master which is amazing considering the lot size.

Toll Brothers is currently offering a $30,000 buyer incentive that could change at any time due to the amount of sales.

Toll Brothers just does a very good job showing a clean look throughout with almost perfect laid out plans.

Southgate really shows some unique upgrades that are all new trends and almost ,in their own way, set new trends with how they show off their model.

Lastly, Edgewood has a total of 354 homesites and has 17 acres of green belt! It’s a very nice piece of land and the developer did a great job incorporating the mature trees and even added bridges!

There is even 5 miles of hike and bike trails within the community!

On top of it all, Edgewood has 8 cul-de-sacs which is difficult to do in smaller developments like Edgewood.

Another huge advantage to residents of Edgewood is the students can walk to all of the schools! (Now that could change but most likely for now they can.)

My boys go to the same elementary McSpedden that Edgewood students will and you cannot find a better Elementary school anywhere in my mind!

SNEAK PEEK into the new McSpedden Elementary School in Frisco!


This weekend we took a tour through Richwoods and Lawler Parks new elementary school for residents called McSpedden Elementary. I was SHOCKED at what we saw! Take a look!


The exterior was done very well like many other Frisco ISD schools with the Texas Brick and Stone with accents of cast stone and a metal roof.

Then open the front door and SHA-BANG . . . The orange, green, grey and blue creates some serious excitement!


And it doesn’t stop there, the hallways, classrooms, cafeteria and even the gym is FULL of color! It’s really neat looking!

The library is front and center after you exit the hallway.




Take a right from the entrance and you will take the hallway to the gym and cafeteria.






Attached to the gym and cafeteria will be the 4th and 5th grade rooms.



And outside the playground and basketball goals look fantastic!






It’s a great start for our new neighborhoods with such an amazing looking Elementary School. Way to go Frisco ISD!

Update on McSpedden Elementary in Frisco


The construction on McSpedden Elementary located inside Lawler Park is amazing! I drove by tonight around 8:30pm and they were still working on the concrete!


Frisco ISD was not kidding when they pretty much guaranteed the school to open its doors next school year!


As you can see the plumbing is already in and the carpool lane is what they were smoothing out tonight.


It’s amazing to me how quickly they can get projects like this done so quickly. This will be faster than a couple of my clients houses!!!

McSpedden Elementary well Underway at Lawler Park in Frisco


The big construction vehicles are out in Lawler Park starting the newest elementary school for FISD.

McSpedden Elementary got a green flag at a recent board meeting to help with the growth of East Frisco. Mainly Richwoods and Lawler Park.

Even the stakes are out with the dirt leveled for the footprint of the school!


Plans for the new school were previously projected for opening in 2015, but with overcrowding in Curtsinger Elementary this was almost a must for Frisco.

Both Richwoods and Lawler Park seem to have no slow down whatsoever. And once Liberty Crossing comes online things might get worse, but in a good way!

McSpedden Elementary will be the Frisco Elementary School for Richwoods and Lawler Park in the Fall of 2014


McSpedden Elementary will be one of 4 new elementary schools in Frisco to open in the Fall of 2014.

By unanimous vote last Monday, the Frisco Board of trustees voted to name the school for Sonny and the late Joanne Thomas McSpedden.

Both have deep ties to the area. Sonny served on the School Board from 1970 to 1976 and Joanne was very active in supporting Frisco schools and the Heritage Association before her death in 2010. The McSpeddens played a big role in the Frisco Homecoming Parade (now Frisco Community Parade) in the 60’s and 70’s and helped embrace newcomers as the City grew, easing the transition of Frisco from a small town to a friendly city.

So residents of Richwoods, Lawler Park and most likely Liberty Crossing in Frisco will have their children attend McSpedden Elementary in the Fall of 2104!
