NewmanVillagePatioBlue_FORPUBUpdate: Many are asking about the price points of Darling’s Patio Homes — about $550,000 ish. There are so cute you could just snap them up!

You recall hearing about Newman Village, a 256 acre former Frisco farm turned into homes up at El Dorado Parkway and Legacy Drive. This is the fabulous gated community with so much art infused into daily life the development’s director is actually a curator. One of the best-selling home products at Newman Village is Darling’s patio homes. And guess who’s buying? Downsizing Baby Boomers who are loving the three bedrooms zero or almost no lot line yards that look like they have been lifted off Dallas’ M Streets.

“These buyers want selected amenities of a larger home, but they do not want the patio home idea,” says Mike Carter, Darling’s marketing director. “Big kitchen, big master, plenty of closets, storage, with all viewing points focusing on the back yard.”

When people downsize, explains Carter, they lose space they never or seldom used. The bedroom count goes down to three, with the master down, two upstairs with a shared bath. Some also want an overflow or bonus room upstairs, or a future game room.

These are the model patio homes up at Newman Village, and I have to say I was quite impressed with not just the quality of building, materials and finish out, I am loving these decors. These patio homes pull off a zero-maintenance product that looks high maintenance…  patio homes for buyers who just don’t want to use that word!
