First-Timer or Move-Up, Stonegate Offers Homes for Everyone

Centrally located, 24/7 guarded entrance, homes of all shapes and sizes — welcome to The Villages of Stonegate.

You know how some neighborhoods are deemed “first-time buyers” or “age-restricted community” and you immediately cross that area off your list of desired locations?  Unfortunately, that seems to be happening more and more these days.

Certainly, price point is a key factor in making an area a “move-up neighborhood,” but there are first-time buyers who can afford more.  There are empty-nesters who don’t want to be around other 55-plus-year-olds.

There’s Stonegate…and Downtown FW and TCU football stadium…close proximity to many destinations

Welcome to Stonegate

In the mid-1990s the 132-residence gated neighborhood of Stonegate was developed.  Within the 24/7 guarded community are various pockets of homes of various sizes that meet the needs of many buyers.  Surrounding the gated enclave are stores, shops, restaurants, medical practices, and even a retirement home.

Because of its great location (just south of I-30 on Hulen Avenue) and proximity to Colonial Country Club and golf course, and feeding into Tanglewood schools, pricing in Stonegate might not work for some, but for buyers with money to spend, Stonegate is the answer.

Stonegate offers single-story and two-story homes

2709 Riverwood Trail

If single-story is what you seek, then 2709 Riverwood Trail might be the answer.  Priced at $635,000, this 2,942-square-foot home in The Villages of Stonegate section of the community features four bedrooms, two and one-half bathrooms, and a flowing floor plan.

The yard is just enough that it won’t take all weekend to maintain, and the covered front porch and rear patio give plenty of opportunities to enjoy the canopy of trees on a sweltering summer evening.

This home could be perfect for a young family (no stairs to climb) or empty-nesters (no stairs to climb, not too much home) or everyone in between.  The floor plan is flexible and the rooms, all with hardwood floors, are spacious.

2885 Oakbriar Trail

If you are active and have a family that loves adventure and exercise, 2885 Oakbriar Trail, also located in the Villages of Stonegate, is a definite “Must See!”  Heck, even if you aren’t looking for a home at the moment, this home is a “Must See!”

According to legend, 2885 Oakbriar Trail was the first homesite sold in Stonegate back in the early 1990s.  The home currently is 5,078 square feet and has been through at least three renovations over the years.

The newer master addition is quite a retreat

The original master bedroom is now a secondary bedroom – thus giving the home two master bedrooms.  In total there are four bedrooms, four-and-one-half bathrooms, three-or-four living areas, an office area, a pool and spa and….wait for it…wait…

A climbing wall in the exercise room!

Yes, I said CLIMBING WALL as in — climb up the wall hanging by little pieces that you see in those climbing gyms.

The most popular home in Stonegate say all the kids

Not only is there a climbing wall, but a small scuttle at the top where you can access a secret bonus room with more climbing options!

I guarantee you will win “Parents of the Year” and “Coolest Home to Hang Out” multiple times if you buy this home!  Who wouldn’t want to befriend the kids of 2885 Oakbriar Trail?.
