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.

Stonegate

I’ve searched for a flaw in the two-week-old listing at 2721 Manorwood Trail in the optimally located Villages at Stonegate, but can’t find one. This pristine 3,300-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-bath house built in 1997 has been so deftly remodeled that it looks brand new. And yet the style is timeless. Smart and stylish, framed by large mature trees, you could be forgiven for mistaking this classic two story for a vintage beauty in Colonial Hills or Crestwood.
