North of Frisco are two fast-growing DFW cities that retain their small-town appeal.
Prosper and Celina are upscale suburbs in Collin and Denton counties with populations of about 20,160 and 8,000, respectively. They’re growing so rapidly, it’s hard to keep up! And what’s not to love? Excellent schools, supportive business climate, community minded residents, and convenient location close to Lewisville Lake and U.S. Highway 380.
Ebby Halliday is leading the way in residential real estate expertise and presence in Prosper and Celina. As we recently wrote, Ebby opened a 5,000-square-foot office with about 50 agents serving the area. This allows Ebby to provide the kind of local, capable market advice homebuyers want and need.
I’ve found three marvelous homes in the Prosper-Celina area represented by Ebby I’m dying to show you!
STUNNING CUSTOM ESTATE ON 7 ACRES WITH RESORT-LIKE BACKYARD
The one-of-a-kind Celina estate at 2545 Lone Star Rd. is truly a sight to behold, from its 7 acres of rolling hills, prairie, and trees, to the house’s 5,748 square feet. It’s hard to believe it’s only minutes from the Tollway and Central Expressway. Built by Drais Custom Homes, the house has six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, one half bath, five living areas, and two dining areas on two stories, built in 2003 and located in the Hills of Lone Star.
This house is an entertainer’s dream with a resort-style backyard. There’s a huge covered outdoor living room with a stone fireplace, kitchen, and bar, as well as a pool, stone waterfall, spa, and private pond for fishing. Wow. Inside, the epicurean kitchen features a stone alcove framing the twin Jenn-air gas ranges. You’ll also find dual dishwashers, warming drawer, copper sink, and an oversized island. Floorplan features include a library and study with fireplace, oversized great room, game room, craft, music, exercise, and sun rooms.

WHITLEY PLACE FAMILY HOME IN PROSPER WITH EXCELLENT FLOORPLAN
The second home I found is in Prosper at 921 Escalante Trl. and it’s a gem. Located in Whitley Place, this 2011 build exudes charm with a welcoming front porch and memorable curb appeal. The house has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, two dining areas, and 3,884 square feet on two stories.
In the entryway, dining room, family room, and kitchen, you’ll find hardwood floors. Walk into the double-height entryway past the formal dining area and your eyes will move upward to the soaring vaulted, beamed ceiling. What a space! The kitchen is a delight with granite countertops, contemporary glass tile backsplash, center island, breakfast nook, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas cooktop. A big master has a delightful bathroom with walk-in closet, granite countertops, garden tub, walk-in shower, and separate vanities and sinks. There is also a second bedroom with full bath downstairs. Upstairs, find a media room, game room, and two guest bedrooms with a Jack-and-Jill bath. In the backyard, enjoy the covered patio, swimming pool, and spa.
