Fairview

It’s almost an unfair advantage to photograph a home with this gorgeous a sunset overhead.

The Town of Fairview is an actual town, so don’t call this gorgeous 9-square-mile bedroom community a city, please. For this week’s Suburb Sunday, here are three homes for sale in Fairview at top-, middle-, and low-price points, but all are breathtaking in this town that’s marked by large homes on sprawling lots and numerous horse farms.

Fairview is located east of US 75/Central Expressway, just north of Allen. About 10,000 people call Fairview home, where they enjoy excellent Lovejoy ISD schools, and the Village at Fairview shopping area.

An interesting fact: There are no apartments or commercial developments in Fairview, plus the town enforces a “dark skies policy” that all new development complies with to protect their way of life and “keeping it country.”

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.
