WalletHub recently named Frisco as one of the three best places for real estate in the country. The Oxford Economic forecast projects Denton county will be the fastest growing economy in the nation over the next five years, and Collin county the second —in the nation. Remember Frisco lies in both counties. Let’s also not forget that Money magazine selected Frisco as one of the best places to live in America.

The Lakes on Legacy is adjacent to Frisco’s $5 billion mile, you know — the home of The Star — the Dallas Cowboys headquarters and practice facility. So, it’s in a perfect location. The estate has been extensively remodeled to the point you’d swear it was brand new construction.
“The sellers did not just remodel, they reimagined the home,” listing agent Steve Habgood said. “It originally had a darker and heavier look. They created a wonderful sense of space and light. It just has a freshness and an elegant presentation throughout.”
“A gentleman who had almost purchased the house but ended up buying down the street came back recently to see it. He said he could not believe the transformation. That’s really the nicest compliment about the quality and attention to detail in the remodeling and restoration,” Habgood said.
With 4,795 square feet, five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a powder bath, home theater, and a lush backyard with a glistening pool, it’s well suited for a large family.
Not only is the home remodeled to perfection, but the sellers knew the home would show much better staged. They turned to Julie Guidry owner of J. Guidry Design, who specializes in luxury home design and staging.
“What I think is important in staging a luxury property is that the furniture correlates with the price point of the house. It’s the custom look, the original art, the found objects, the little things that make it look like home, that make the difference and create warmth. It looks like someone lives there,” Guidry said. “It’s short sighted to spend money on everything else but not staging. Buyers of a luxury property expect a finished look.
“When a prospective buyer walks in, they need to think if they buy that house, their life is going to be perfect and pretty.” Guidry added. “Staging creates a way for people to feel the home and the lifestyle it offers.”
And what a lifestyle — a perfect Frisco location coupled with a fresh, elegant look that you can relate to instantly. We can’t imagine this beautiful home won’t go under contract at the open house this weekend.
Steve Habgood and Kathy Hewitt of the Hewitt & Habgood Group with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate have this luxury estate at The Lakes on Legacy listed for $1.25 million.
Open House: Sunday, Sept. 10, 2 to 4 p.m.
