luxury condosEvery so often, we get a wild hair here at CandysDirt.com and decide to solicit pitches from realtors. It’s a fun way to see some great listings, and we can pick from the best of the best to turnaround and spotlight. So when we got a nice fat packet for the luxury condos at the Sojourn Castle Hills, we knew we had to dish.

Bright Realty Company vice president Edina Radoncic sent over the scoop on the first phase, a 40 unit project which is in The Realm at Castle Hills in Lewisville.

“Our first phase of condos will consist of 40 units, 1, 2, and 3 bedrooms ranging from 1,051 to 1,695 square feet,” she said. Move in will begin as early as December 2019.

And if you want to move in, you better get a move on. “We have sold seven units in pre-sales!” Radoncic said. (more…)

Since the first homeowners moved into Lewisville’s Castle Hills community in 1998, more than 12,000 people have decided to call the master planned community home, and it is about 60 percent built-out today.

Located off State Highway 121 and Farm-to-Market Road 544, Castle Hills is 60 percent residential and has single-family houses ranging from about $300,000 to $1.5 million and more.

Developer Bright Realty is enticing a different demographic with their next stage of work at Castle Hills with a $75-million project called Discovery at The Realm. These 4,000 luxury rental apartments are being built with young professionals in mind.

Tim McNutt, Executive VP of Multifamily Development at Bright Realty and a Castle Hills resident himself, said these apartments are part of the strategy to develop Castle Hills in stages.

“The long-term plan was to establish the single-family housing, then to develop the remaining commercial properties,” McNutt said. “Along with the commercial [real estate], we wanted to expand the demographic and this will broaden our appeal to a whole new market.”
