Grand Homes has pleasure of building within three fabulous communities in Plano – Trails of Glenwood, Harrington Mills and Northglen.

Our new model home at Bower Ranch in Mansfield has been open for a few weeks now. We’re really excited because it is one of our newest plans – the Downton Abbey!
The Downton Abbey is a five bedroom plan (with a sixth bedroom option) that features a jaw-dropping double curved staircase at the entry, customizable LifeSpace that can be used as a private study or guest suite with full bath on one side of the house with living and dining rooms on the opposite side. Once you cross under the magnificent staircase you’ll find yourself in the vaulted family room. You’ll love huge windows that allow for plenty of natural light and you can stay warm by the gas fireplace in winter.
The open floorplan allows for an easy transition from the family room to gourmet kitchen which boasts granite slab countertops, built in stainless steel appliances, a gas cooktop and an island/breakfast bar. Also, underneath the stairs you’ll find a wine room with a wet bar that will be perfect for a housewarming party! When designing the rooms downstairs, our interior designer, Jill Noble, credits Ralph Lauren Home as her inspiration with the master bath being her favorite room in the house due to the “wow factor.” This luxurious retreat boasts an oasis drop in tub with separate shower, separate his and her vanities and double doors to the huge walk in closet!
Upstairs, you will be able to look over the family room from the gameroom which dead ends into the cozy media room. From the gameroom you can choose to add a loft that will connect to a hallway leading to three bedrooms. This home was definitely designed to entertain. Inspired by the Ritz-Carlton upstairs, Noble used a combination of stylish, contemporary furniture, vintage pieces and classical wood to create a lounge-type ambiance in the common areas. Each bedroom was designed with a different theme – surfing using weathered surfing artwork, trendy-prep with hanging initials and chevron print bed clothes and vintage cars with the front of a car driving through the wall and real working headlights!
When decorating your own home, Noble advises to, “always consider the function of the room before choosing statement pieces.” Her favorite statement piece in this model happens to be the large oval dining table in the dining room. This table happens to seat eight to 10 people, perfect for a large party or having the family over for dinner. “The room is large enough to hold the piece along with a buffet, something you don’t find often outside of a custom home,” she says.

The U.S. economy grew for the second straight year in 2011, although at a slower pace than in 2010. According to figures released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the nation’s gross domestic product increased 1.6% last year, down from 3.1% in 2010.
Durable-goods manufacturing was the nation’s most significant growth industry, contributing nearly one-third of last year’s GDP growth. Significant contributions were also made by professional, scientific and technical services, which accounted for 24.7% of GDP growth, and the information sector, which represented 14.7% of economic growth.

In a recent study by On Numbers, the statistical arm of The Business Journals, the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex came in 4th on the nation’s most populous cities list behind New York, L.A., and Chicago. DFW currently has an estimated 6,554,919 people, which is 183,146 more people than was counted in the 2010 U.S. Census. If this data is correct that means an average of 500 people a day are moving to DFW! (more…)
Some good news for the Dallas real estate market – forecasts show Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston to expect the largest home price growth throughout the country in the upcoming year.
Estimates show North Texas prices will increase 2.7% in the next year. Houston prices are expected to increase 3.8%, according to Veros Real Estate Solutions, housing analysis firm.
“The primary reason for the strong Texas showing is that Texas cities did not have a huge run-up in prices that occurred with much of the rest of the country,” said Eric Fox, Veros’ vice president of statistical and economic modeling.” Unemployment rates in Houston, Dallas and other Texas cities are below the national unemployment rate.
“Also, the months’ supply of homes for sale in Texas is modest,” Fox said.
