Relocating to North Texas? This Frisco Family Home is an Easy Choice

Share News:

When you’re relocating for a job, the search for a home can be rife with uncertainty. 

Are the schools good? Is there a grocery store nearby? Are there other school-aged children in the neighborhood? Is it safe?

Well, if you’re not one for shopping or guesswork, this Frisco home is an easy buy. Built in 2005 inside the popular Stonelake Estates, you get a solid house with plenty of room and on a great street.

“This home is a relocating family’s dream,” says listing agent Kathryn Roan with KW Urban Dallas. “When you first move to a new place, it can be so hard to get your bearings. Frisco is a very family-centric community that welcomes newcomers.”

And it makes it very hard to leave.

“We are sad to leave this wonderful community as we have amazing memories here but our children have all gone off to college,” says seller Donna Nimmo. “This home was amazing to raise young children in thanks to the close proximity to the schools and all of the activities.”

“This home has a classic, open, family-oriented floor plan,” Roan said. “I love the fact that the master and utility are downstairs, creating a ‘kids domain’ upstairs with the game room and media room.”

This makes for superb entertaining, Nimmo says, especially in the kitchen. “My husband is an executive chef and absolutely loves the way the kitchen is set up and flows,” she added.

For those who want privacy, you’ll appreciate the downstairs master suite, which is sizable at 18 by 17 feet. There are four more bedrooms, with an additional one downstairs that could also easily function as a home office. So, obviously, there’s plenty of room for everyone in this 3,748-square-foot home. And yet, it doesn’t feel too large. 

If you’re like me and you face the everyday dilemma of what to do about all of the toys that children seem to amass between birthdays and other holidays, the upstairs area is your solution. With a large and open game room connected to a media room, you never have to worry about stepping on legos or hearing the alarming sounds coming from the gaming console. Want to host a slumber party so your children can get acquainted with neighborhood kids before school starts? I’m pretty sure you can fit quite a few sleeping bags up there. 

Speaking of the start of school, classes at Frisco ISD’s Ashley Elementary, which is literally across the street from this home, start on Aug. 21. That gives you a solid month to get settled in and get used to the very short walk for drop off and pick up. You’ll get dirty looks from all of the SUV drivers idling in the carpool lane, that’s for sure. In case you have kids that are a bit older, you’ll be happy to know that this house feeds into Roach Middle School and Frisco’s acclaimed Independence High School.
Of course, there’s a lot more to this listing and neighborhood than just the real estate. The community is a winner, for sure. Frisco is one of those towns that perennially tops those lists of “safest cities” and “best places to move.” Just last year, USA Today ranked Frisco the 14th safest city in America. Just this year, Frisco was recognized as one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, too. 
“With all the growth in Frisco, you are likely to meet neighbors that are just as new to the area as you,” says Roan. “The Stonelake Estates community features a private pool and park for neighborhood use, offering perfect opportunities to make new friends. All the amenities are close by, including shopping, groceries, and more.”
Roan has listed 15652 Christopher Lane for $479,900.
