Windsong Ranch

Crystal Lagoon at Windsong Ranch in Prosper

Every Saturday, we feature a home in the $600,000 to $800,000 price range, and as you can imagine these homes vary as widely as their zip codes do. (We cover a lot of Dallas-area dirt around here.) But today we’re featuring homes with an unbelievable beach amenity that’s sure to send homebuyers scrambling to nab the last few homes available at Windsong Ranch in Prosper.  

Windsong Ranch is a 2,030-acre master planned development located near Dallas North Tollway and U.S. Highway 380 in Prosper. Right now, a fourth of its planned homes are occupied or completed. When fully developed, Windsong Ranch will consist of 3,100 single-family homes ranging from the upper $200,000s to more than $1 million. But the headline in local media is this Caribbean-comes-to-Texas water feature that’s part of Windsong Ranch. (more…)

Grenadier

Whether you’re looking at retirement and downsizing, or you’re a first-time buyer looking to get into a popular development in Prosper, a new partnership between Grenadier Homes and California-based The Resmark Companies has right-sized, right-priced options.

The two have partnered to develop 198 single-family attached townhomes in two neighborhoods at Windsong Ranch in Prosper. It will be the only remaining development planned in the master planned community.

Resmark and Grenadier will partner on the second phase of the successful Villas at Windsong Ranch community for the development of 88 single-family attached one-story villa townhomes. A new townhome line of 110 single-family attached two-story townhomes within Windsong Ranch will also be part of the investment.  Sales are expected to begin in summer 2019 with first occupancies in late 2019 and completion in summer 2023, a joint statement from the companies said.

Resmark is based in Los Angeles, but has offices in San Diego and Irvine, California, Austin, Texas, and McLean, Virginia. Grenadier is Dallas-based.

“This is our first investment in Dallas,” Michael Zarola, Senior Vice President of Investments for Resmark’s Land and Housing division, said in a phone interview. “And without it sounding like a sales pitch, what we really do kind of focus on partner first and real estate second.” (more…)

“The People’s Choice Award is THE coveted award of the night because it is a customer satisfaction award that shows our success in creating the best community for our homeowners,” said Craig Martin, Founding Partner of Terra Verde Group, the developer of Windsong Ranch. “Our residents ranked Windsong highest in overall lifestyle, amenities and customer service compared to all the other communities in DFW.”

We knew it the first time we saw it: there was just something very special, warm and inviting about the Welcome Center at Windsong Ranch. We didn’t feel as if we were looking at a sales office, or event a home development marketing center.

We felt like we were arriving at a Kimpton Hotel and the refreshments were just around the corner! Come on in, put your feet up.

So it comes as no surprise that the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) National Sales and Marketing Council (NSMC) recently named Windsong Ranch’s Welcome Center the best in the country. That’s right, BEST IN THE COUNTRY! The National Sales and Marketing Council’s new home sales and marketing awards salute and honor the best in the building industry for their determination, integrity, creativity and endurance.

More than 1,300 entries were received for this year’s awards.

“We knew our Welcome Center had to stand out,” said Craig Martin, Founding Partner of Terra Verde Group, the developer of Windsong Ranch.  “Along with all of the great amenities, what really gives us an edge is the Windsong Café where residents can get a cup of coffee or fresh food cooked with locally sourced ingredients.”

Like we said, refreshments just around the corner, locally sourced be they vegetables from a Windsong Ranch garden, or fresh honey from a ranch hive.

If you haven’t seen Windsong Ranch in Prosper, I would set your sails to head north to experience not just one of the most amazing home communities I have ever seen, but one of the most thoroughly beautiful ever created.

The 2,030-acre development in Prosper was named the Best Master-planned Community of the Year by the Dallas Builders Association and was a silver award winner for the same award at the NAHB International Builders Show in 2015 — and those are only two of the many awards it’s won for its innovation in design and amenities. The vision in developer Craig Martin’s mind was to create the ultimate in a family-friendly lifestyle that encourages neighbors to connect, commune and enjoy the great outdoors on a whopping 600 acres of open spaces, lakes, creeks, trails and fields.

“It’s nature re-discovered,” he told me. “Prairie winds, the grasslands, getting back to what this land was all about.”
