3959 Spinnaker Run Front

Designed as the personal residence of William Hidell of Hidell & Associates, this home has the kind of attention to detail and site design you’d expect from a renowned contemporary architect. Clean lines, sexy and sleek finishes, and windows in all the right places make this home a perfect retreat from the busy, hectic lives of today.

Not only that, but it has direct access to Lake Lewisville and is on one of our region’s most scenic shores: Sunset Bay. This is quickly becoming the next hot spot for those who want unobstructed lake views and the privacy to go with it. Situated on almost four acres with plenty of trees, you’ll never need a tall fence to enjoy your estate, which is something you can’t say for many homes inside the loop.

Sure, Little Elm is out there, but you’re making no sacrifices when it comes to comfort and style.

Since the first homeowners moved into Lewisville’s Castle Hills community in 1998, more than 12,000 people have decided to call the master planned community home, and it is about 60 percent built-out today.

Located off State Highway 121 and Farm-to-Market Road 544, Castle Hills is 60 percent residential and has single-family houses ranging from about $300,000 to $1.5 million and more.

Developer Bright Realty is enticing a different demographic with their next stage of work at Castle Hills with a $75-million project called Discovery at The Realm. These 4,000 luxury rental apartments are being built with young professionals in mind.

Tim McNutt, Executive VP of Multifamily Development at Bright Realty and a Castle Hills resident himself, said these apartments are part of the strategy to develop Castle Hills in stages.

“The long-term plan was to establish the single-family housing, then to develop the remaining commercial properties,” McNutt said. “Along with the commercial [real estate], we wanted to expand the demographic and this will broaden our appeal to a whole new market.”

Bright Realty broke ground in December on Discovery at The Realm, which will include high-end, three podium-style buildings (underground parking with four stories of apartments above) on over 20 acres of land located south of Windhaven Parkway at Castle Hills Drive. The first units will be available in April 2016, with all phase one units completed by October 2016.

When you think of hip, fun destinations to live, work, and play in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the city of Lewisville is not usually at the top of the list.

But city leaders in this northern suburb of almost 100,000 residents are changing that as redevelopment moves into full swing in the Old Town area. New houses, townhomes, restaurants, and retail shops are all in the works as developers and entrepreneurs take note of the changing atmosphere.

“Everybody has been hyper-focused on Collin County, but these changes in Lewisville will give people another option,” said David Maez, Broker and Co-Owner at VIVO Realty, which represents the developer Belleville Village, the builders of Uptown Village Lewisville townhomes near East Main Street and East Mill Street in Old Town. “It’s close to Lewisville Lake, close to the airport, close to I-35, which makes it easy to get to Dallas. These changes will make that area more appealing for buyers, especially younger professionals.”  (more…)

001_Building ExteriorThe city of Lewisville is spending millions of dollars to revitalize its historic downtown area, and developers are flocking to the northern suburb. Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred takes us to the Belleville Village development near East Main Street and East Mill Street, to a new townhome at 313 S. Kealy Street.

Listed for $209,000, this three bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, two-story townhome is 1,827 square feet, one of six like it coming on the market in Uptown Village Lewisville. The brick exterior mirrors the look and feel of downtown Lewisville, and the aesthetic is a historic, urban look.

“This is going to be a walkable area, like Shops at Legacy or in Coppell,” said David Maez, Broker and Co-Owner at VIVO Realty, which represents the developer. “Our company really wanted to showcase the lifestyle that this development and downtown Lewisville will offer.”
