We know what you’re thinking. This stately, clean lined, New American Classic home at 3824 Newman Blvd. looks like a Highland Park house — but it’s in Frisco. It’s not what you expect, is it? So what is happening in Frisco? A lot.
Frisco has been voted one of the best places to live in America by Money Magazine, rated one of the safest cities in America by Safewise, one of the best places to relocate by Forbes, and are you ready for this … the best place to raise an athlete by Men’s Journal.
Just looking at Frisco’s official website will make your head spin and have you wondering why you’d ever live anywhere else.
Of course there’s the simple fact you get a lot more for your money in Frisco. Think about what this gorgeous $2.295 million, 7,575-square-foot home would cost in the Park Cities? Double that, easily — maybe even triple. That, and the growing weariness of the work commute may be why we’re seeing something of a trend with Park Cities folks relocating to Frisco.
Great builders are creating fresh, exciting, new genres of homes here and this one is a prime example. In fact, we asked listing agent Susan Baldwin of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s to come up with a name for this beauty. Without missing a beat, she said, “I’d call it a New American Classic.” Genius.
The gracious two-story home was designed by Fusch Architects and built by Booth Brothers Homes. This is basically the dream team known for impeccable quality and the highest standards in the industry.
“When I first saw it, about two months from completion, I knew it was going to be something special,” Baldwin said.
This is the model home for the premier gated community of Newman Village, and it’s one of only 12 homes on over a half acre. There are five bedrooms and six bathrooms — yes six, and of course three powder baths. Talk about inspired design, there are his-and-her offices and a first-floor media room. Don’t worry, if the adults are screening a movie the kids will still be happy in the game room.
“It’s really what I call thoughtful design,” Baldwin said. “The flow is great and there is such usable space.” The family room allows you to be a part of everything that is going on yet there is still room for intimate conversation.
And of course the back patio and all that yard space. “It’s a complete winner,” Baldwin said. We agree wholeheartedly.
You can see it in person at the open house on Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m.
