A few weeks ago, we tallied up the casas that’ll cost you the most in Collin County, which were spread throughout the county in McKinney, Prosper, and Frisco. That last one threw us for a loop because Frisco exists in both Collin and Denton counties, and home #3 Starling Drive upon further research turns out to be in Denton County.
Collin, we owe you a number #3, but for this week we’re trekking northwest to Denton County for the top-, second-, and fourth- most expensive existing homes on the market today. No surprise they’re all located in gorgeous Flower Mound, the upscale suburb of estate-sized homes on large acreage lots. Locals playfully call it The Mound, but we call it The Ultimate in Denton County living.

I promise you, the Joneses don’t have a well house. This gated mansion offers privacy and seclusion on the 8.34 acres of heavily-treed land, as well as many lifestyle options for homeowners, from horses to a helipad. (more…)
