Grenadier

Whether you’re looking at retirement and downsizing, or you’re a first-time buyer looking to get into a popular development in Prosper, a new partnership between Grenadier Homes and California-based The Resmark Companies has right-sized, right-priced options.

The two have partnered to develop 198 single-family attached townhomes in two neighborhoods at Windsong Ranch in Prosper. It will be the only remaining development planned in the master planned community.

Resmark and Grenadier will partner on the second phase of the successful Villas at Windsong Ranch community for the development of 88 single-family attached one-story villa townhomes. A new townhome line of 110 single-family attached two-story townhomes within Windsong Ranch will also be part of the investment.  Sales are expected to begin in summer 2019 with first occupancies in late 2019 and completion in summer 2023, a joint statement from the companies said.

Resmark is based in Los Angeles, but has offices in San Diego and Irvine, California, Austin, Texas, and McLean, Virginia. Grenadier is Dallas-based.

“This is our first investment in Dallas,” Michael Zarola, Senior Vice President of Investments for Resmark’s Land and Housing division, said in a phone interview. “And without it sounding like a sales pitch, what we really do kind of focus on partner first and real estate second.” (more…)

3730 Prosper Trail, Prosper | CandysDirt.com

Love dogs and horses? Looking for a place in the country? The 4,400-square foot, two-story, four-bedroom, three-and-one-half-bath Prosper home at was built with canines in mind; it’s well-suited for horse lovers, too. Located at 3730 E. Prosper Trail, the property’s 10.59-acre site makes the term”country estate” apropos. The heavily wooded property is surrounded by a creek and boasts a stocked pond. The traditional-style house has all the amenities you’d expect of a luxury home: an oversized kitchen with a cozy keeping room; a study; a master bedroom and two guest bedrooms downstairs, split for privacy; a large game room and en-suite guest bedroom upstairs; and built-ins throughout, including a dog bathing space in the laundry room.

There’s also a 1,000-square foot workshop, a barn, an outdoor kitchen and pool, plus customs dog quarters and a dog run — it’s the perfect set up for family with four-footed kids, perhaps in abundance: room to run, woods and creeks to explore, a pond and a pool for cooling off, a place for grooming and abundant grassy space for training and playing ball.

We knew it the first time we saw it: there was just something very special, warm and inviting about the Welcome Center at Windsong Ranch. We didn’t feel as if we were looking at a sales office, or event a home development marketing center.

We felt like we were arriving at a Kimpton Hotel and the refreshments were just around the corner! Come on in, put your feet up.

So it comes as no surprise that the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) National Sales and Marketing Council (NSMC) recently named Windsong Ranch’s Welcome Center the best in the country. That’s right, BEST IN THE COUNTRY! The National Sales and Marketing Council’s new home sales and marketing awards salute and honor the best in the building industry for their determination, integrity, creativity and endurance.

More than 1,300 entries were received for this year’s awards.

“We knew our Welcome Center had to stand out,” said Craig Martin, Founding Partner of Terra Verde Group, the developer of Windsong Ranch.  “Along with all of the great amenities, what really gives us an edge is the Windsong Café where residents can get a cup of coffee or fresh food cooked with locally sourced ingredients.”

Like we said, refreshments just around the corner, locally sourced be they vegetables from a Windsong Ranch garden, or fresh honey from a ranch hive.

Mehrdad-Moayedi

Our market south of LBJ is hot. But Denton County is rocking it, too, and even Frisco is starting to run out of land, even farm land. Now Mehrdad Moayedi’s Centurion American Development plans to build 1,800-home single family brand spanking new homes between Prosper and Celina on Frontier Parkway west of Preston Road. The first phase of lots will be available in the summer of 2016 in a development called Sutton Farms.
