North of SH 121 and east of the Dallas North Tollway, the Chapel Creek neighborhood in west Frisco has a rare blend of both established homes first built in the early 2000s and brand new, custom-built homes on remaining lots available. Many of the 13 homes now listed for sale in Chapel Creek are from the 2000s, which reflect the very traditional, European-inspired aesthetic popular at the time. But the mix of custom homes ranging from approximately $850,000 to $3.25 million is built by a variety of custom builders, which is a nice change of pace from single-builder neighborhoods that can look too homogeneous. And sometimes just a paint job will make the difference in getting a 6,000+ square foot home for under $200 a square foot. This neighborhood, close to The Star and minutes away from Legacy West, is well-established with lush trees, landscaped grassy areas, and a wooded creek.

Located on an interior lot of a cul-de-sac, this 2007-built home by George C. Fuller Custom Homes has a classic timeless appeal with its brick and stone exterior. Inside you’ll find hand-scraped floors, vaulted ceilings, six fireplaces, and extras like a wine cellar and fully equipped media and game room. Yes, it’s got some of the original faux finishes on the walls and ceilings, but it’s just paint. Open floor plan and soaring ceilings give this home a great place from which to make it your own.

This 2004-built home was once a foreclosure that’s been on the market for nearly two years, but at $188 per square foot, it’s definitely worth a look. Handscraped hardwood floors, soaring ceilings, and majestic details give the home a dramatic flair. The five bedroom home has a downstairs master with fireplace, rotunda-style sitting area, and huge bath. The utility room is especially useful with a dog shower installed. Beyond the lagoon-style pool, the backyard is a semi-private wooded escape with gazebo.

Though this 2003-built Darling Home is one of the older homes in the neighborhood, the previous sellers made more than $200k in improvements and upgrades in 2017, including paint, plantation shutters, and smart home upgrades. Inside you’ll find scraped hardwood, plantation shutters, designer paint, and commercial grade appliances. This home has two bedrooms downstairs including the master suite and three large bedrooms upstairs, where there’s also a large 20×17 game room. Downstairs, there are lots of warm, elegant places for family life, including the living room, den, and media room that’s cozy like a third living area.
