Westlake is a premier destination for luxury home builders like MG Luxury Homes. With what seems like half of California moving here, an unprecedented number of our new West Coast neighbors are choosing to live in Westlake. Named the most affluent community in the country by Forbes in 2011, it’s only gotten better.
Westlake is a Million-Dollar City
In 2020 Westlake, Highland Park, and University Park made Zillow’s list of Million-Dollar Cities in the U.S. That means a city’s average home cost is a million bucks. These are the only three cities in Texas that made the list of 218.
Space, which is at a premium in so many luxury markets, is one of the many attractive qualities bringing folks to this part of the Metroplex. That and brilliant builders with gorgeous move-in ready spec homes, because who the heck has time to furnish a home any more?
Triple Treat of Talent
One of the new kids on the block is MG Luxury Homes, an exciting triple-treat of talents.
Rachit and Prachi Gupta and Rahul Manda were friends in India years ago. Raul came to Texas to attend UT-Arlington for a master’s in construction management. His family has been in India’s construction business for more than 30 years, so home-building is in his DNA.
Rachit had family in the Metroplex, so 20 years ago he and Prachi moved to Texas. With Rachit’s degree in IT and Prachi’s in economics (with a specialty in energy efficiency), you can see this is not your average construction team.
It all began six years ago with the construction of the Gupta’s own home.
“We loved the process of building,” Prachi said. While they were in the framing stage of their dream house, someone came by and convinced them to sell it. The Guptas thought, well, we can just build another one, we know how to do this.
And a luxury home building business was born.
“We have an excellent team, and everyone has their unique skill set,” Prachi said. “Rachit brings in his negotiation skills at the forefront of the process. I come in the middle when we start building a custom dream home and help the designers and clients. Rahul is boots on the ground from start to finish. He keeps us on track.”
High Standards, Trend Forward
MG Luxury Homes is setting the standards higher than industry requirements. They are targeting the next generation, the new professionals for whom technology is essential and security is paramount.
Buyers want a multi-purpose safe room that not only protects valuables but also family members. Home gyms are a necessity, and wine rooms have made a comeback but not wine cellars. They are now front and center and work of art.
“When you look at this price point, a wine room is a must,” Prachi said. “I like to keep the wine room close to the kitchen and design it as a wall of art.”
A spec home is like a portfolio piece for a luxury builder. It showcases the best of what they offer, and highlights features most people don’t consider. This Westlake Mediterranean is a perfect example of what sets MG Luxury Homes apart.
“I want classic features and fixtures that are timeless and elegant,” Prachi said. “We spend a lot of time selecting light fixtures, for instance. We choose American-made fixtures that are sleek, modern, and of the highest quality.”
Prachi thinks about what makes a home not only beautiful but also allows it to function exceptionally well for a buyer’s lifestyle. The principal suite in this particular Westlake Mediterranean is comprised of an entire wing with a coffee room and one of the loveliest closets I’ve seen, complete with natural light.
It’s not merely the fact this team knows how to build a beautiful home and is one of the preferred builders in Quail Hollow that is so attractive. What sets them apart is their consideration of the customer experience not just during, but also after construction.
They have built excellent relationships with furniture manufacturers in North Carolina, which allows them to bring wholesale prices to their clients so they can put those final touches on their dream home.
MG Luxury Homes’s beautiful portfolio piece is at 1521 Meandering Way Drive. It has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms with so much “extra” you must see it in person.
Synergy Real Estate agents Luci Noonan and Troy George have this beautiful Westlake Mediterranean listed for $4.395 million.
