Not all condominium living is located in Dallas city limits. In fact, some of the most luxurious, resort-inspired condo living is happening at The Corvalla in Frisco, where homes start at $650,000 and go up to $1.2 million. 

The Corvalla is a 121-home neighborhood of three-story buildings with home ranging from 1,700 to 3,000 square feet with especially large master suites and open kitchen living style. From the exterior, it’s clear that clean lines and large windows are prominent in the condo’s contemporary yet comfortable feel.

Ebby Golf Tournament Benefits Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Frisco | CandysDirt.com

Ebby Halliday Realtors’ Frisco office is hosting its ninth annual Charity Golf Tournament at Stonebriar Country Club on Monday, Sept. 18. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the event will benefit Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Frisco. Recognizing the growing need, Texas Scottish Rite is building a new ambulatory care center in Frisco, at the corner of Lebanon Road and the Dallas North Tollway.

“Ebby Frisco is proud to partner with Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, which cares for children with orthopedic conditions, as well as certain related neurological and learning disorders, regardless of the family’s ability to pay,” said Kristi Davis, sales manager of Ebby’s Frisco office.

31 Stonebriar Way ext Want to come home to a total retreat? Want to hear the wind rustle in the trees rather than sirens screeching on Central? If the urban waterfall sometimes gets to be too much, take a look at what this retreat has to offer. This seasoned Tudor revival compound called Stonebriar Manor, at 31 Stonebriar Way, can give you the pleasures of living on a farm in the heart of a major metropolitan area. It has a Frisco address, yes, but is really so close and convenient to everything north of Park Cities. All you do is hop on the Dallas North Tollroad, and pray for no traffic.

Of course, once you get north, you find a wonderland of living from five rolling acres, a creek with a bridge, a barn, greenhouse, wishing well, tennis court, guest house and a pond with a beautiful spray fountain.

The main house is pretty amazing, too, with 9200 square feet of spacious rooms, heavy beams, beautifully crafted woodwork, a double Aga stove, and a complete environment that would support a multi-generational family arrangement. There are four bedrooms, four full and two half baths, a four car garage, exercise room, and a laundry room large enough to hold a pet or two, plus six fireplaces in the main house. A screened-in porch doubles as a card room. The dogs have plenty of space to frolic on five acres, but if you need to put them up, there is a dog run. Feel like raising your own exotic orchids? There is a hothouse greenhouse. Feel like letting your grown children move back home? Take your choice of an apartment with full kitchen or a two bedroom, or the two bedroom, two bath guest house with  full kitchen just across the pool.

Come to think of it, War of the Roses may never have happened if Michael Douglas or Kathleen Turner had had a guest house! (more…)
