literally a tree house

Did you ever fantasize about living in a treehouse?

Two of my favorite movies growing up were Swiss Family Robinson and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.  While vastly different in story and genre, both movies prominently featured treehouse living that made me want one so badly.

If you want to live completely surrounded by trees – 5340 Quail Run is just what you need!

The Robinson family built their elaborate treehouse out of salvaged wood from their ship.  In Return of the Jedi, the Ewoks lived in a village built high in the trees on the planet Endor.

There is just something so fascinating about being surrounded by trees and greenery while hanging out in your home.  There is a sense of privacy and certainly peace that accompanies a treehouse. And that’s what you get at 5340 Quail Run St.

Centrally located, 24/7 guarded entrance, homes of all shapes and sizes — welcome to The Villages of Stonegate.

You know how some neighborhoods are deemed “first-time buyers” or “age-restricted community” and you immediately cross that area off your list of desired locations?  Unfortunately, that seems to be happening more and more these days.

Certainly, price point is a key factor in making an area a “move-up neighborhood,” but there are first-time buyers who can afford more.  There are empty-nesters who don’t want to be around other 55-plus-year-olds.

There’s Stonegate…and Downtown FW and TCU football stadium…close proximity to many destinations

Welcome to Stonegate

In the mid-1990s the 132-residence gated neighborhood of Stonegate was developed.  Within the 24/7 guarded community are various pockets of homes of various sizes that meet the needs of many buyers.  Surrounding the gated enclave are stores, shops, restaurants, medical practices, and even a retirement home.

Because of its great location (just south of I-30 on Hulen Avenue) and proximity to Colonial Country Club and golf course, and feeding into Tanglewood schools, pricing in Stonegate might not work for some, but for buyers with money to spend, Stonegate is the answer.

Room to Roam in this Ranch

The ranch-style home found its heyday in the years between the 1940s and 1970s.

Back then developers and builders weren’t trying to squeeze as many homes on a property as possible to maximize earnings.
