Grand Homes in the Best Suburbs in TX

Niche_(Company)_LogoNiche.com has listed the Best Suburbs to Buy a House in Texas and Grand Homes builds in six of the top ten!

According to Niche.com, “Niche ranks US suburbs based on home values, property taxes, housing costs, and age of new home buyers. A high ranking indicates that a suburb attracts residents with a good housing market where property taxes and housing costs are in line with value.”

DFW is in the midst of the hottest housing market ever! Take a look at the following ‘burbs and see which one strikes your fancy!

McKinney – #9
McKinney offers a quaint Historic Downtown area, plenty of parks, shopping and entertainment opportunities as well as a loaded community event calendar. McKinney has also been named the #1 Best Place to Live by Money Magazine. McKinney is located 30 miles north of Dallas. We have three communities in the award-winning city – Sorrellwood Park, Shiloh Ranch and Estates of Verona.

tribThe Colony – #8
The Colony is home to the AMAZING Tribute Lakeside Golf and Resort Community. The Tribute is a premier, master planned community that hugs the shores of Lake Lewisville and features amenity centers, a splash park, resort-style pool, playgrounds, an on-site K-8 STEM Academy, golf courses, six miles of hike and bike trails and so much more!

Wylie – #7
We are closing out Parkside in Wylie and welcoming the Dominion of Pleasant Valley! Coming later this year, our newest community will feature an amenity center with a swimming pool, parks, playgrounds and three miles of hike and bike trails. Also in Wylie, Creekside Estates is nestled among the trees and grassy meadows near Southfork Ranch. Wylie is known as the ‘City Between the Lakes’ (said lakes being Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard) and is one of the fastest growing cities in Collin County.

allenAllen – #4
The City of Allen is also a fast-growing suburb that has earned its fair share of accolades including Best City for Young Families (ApartmentList.com), Top Ten DFW Suburbs (D Magazine), 2nd in Best Cities for First Time Home Buyers (WalletHub) and more! The Landings of Kittyhawk and Cumberland Crossing are in the middle of new shopping, dining and entertainment venues and with easy access to the Sam Rayburn Tollway and Highway 75 the rest of DFW is just a short drive away.

Frisco – #3
Frisco is a sports-lover’s dream! Currently home to four pro and minor league teams, Frisco is soon to have a new team in town – the Dallas Cowboys! With great schools and plenty of entertainment, Frisco is a fantastic city to raise a family. The Traditions of Frisco is now in closeout but the Dominion at Panther Creek and Hills of Kingswood each have important qualities. Dominion of Panther Creek is chock-full of family-oriented amenities and the gated Hills of Kingswood offers a private haven with luxury in mind.

little elmLittle Elm – #1
Also along the shores of Lake Lewisville is Little Elm. This town is experiencing major growth but works hard to maintain its appealing small town charm. Little Elm boasts the largest beach in North Texas and easy access to major highways. Frisco Hills is located within the Frisco ISD boundaries and is just 35 miles away from downtown Dallas.

Introducing…The Downton Abbey!

01_Front xOur 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.

10_Great Room xThe 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!

23_Game Room xUpstairs, 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!

08_Formal Dining RoomWhen 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.

Interested in building your own Downton Abbey? Check out the floorplan and communities where we build it. Give us a call at 972-387-6087 to set up a private tour of our Bower Ranch model or any of our other communities!

It’s no secret that Grand Homes are designed to bring people together and what better way than at the dinner table! Thanksgiving is less than three weeks away so we’d like to share some of our favorite dining rooms and kitchens.

kitchenCheck out this gorgeous kitchen at our Graham Ranch model (which happens to be for sale!) in North Richland Hills. Our favorite part about this kitchen is that massive island/breakfast bar. Beautiful cabinets, a stunning backsplash and the stainless steel appliances are included! This home also features a wine cellar which we think is pretty spectacular in itself.

McCreary-Kitchen-800x514x72Another kitchen we love is at our McCreary Creek model in Parker. Storage, storage, storage! This kitchen is flooded with cabinet space, beautiful flooring that contrasts perfectly with the creamy cabinet color, a gas stovetop and more stainless steel appliances. Our kitchens aren’t only fabulous, but they’re functional as well! This Hamptons floorplan is very open and allows for easy transition from the kitchen to the dining area and into the family room. This is ideal for having guests over so chef can mingle as much as the guests.

Newton-Dining-800x522x72Newton-Kitchen-800x617x72The Grand Ashford at Newton Ranch (and most of our floorplans) offer dining options! Here, you can choose to dine in the casual dining area right off the kitchen, in the formal dining room or both! The best part is that you get to pick the plan that works for you!

Grand Gives Back

DSC_1229Yesterday was a very exciting day here at Grand Homes. Not only was it the final day of Grand College sales training, but sales associates and office staff were able to come together for a very important cause. Special guests Jack Nulty, Executive Director at Homes for Hope, and Leah Rutt, the daughter of Hope International founder Jeff Rutt, joined Grand Homes for a check presentation.

During yesterday’s presentation, Ms. Rutt explained how her family would donate food and medical supplies in Ukraine before they decided they wanted to help in a way that would make a lasting difference. This is how HOPE International came to be.

Homes for HOPE is an arm of HOPE International that works with home builders to facilitate and encourage the construction of HOPE Homes. What makes HOPE Homes special is that the labor, materials and services are donated or discounted in order to increase profit. Profit from the sale then goes towards the provision of microloans to entrepreneurs in impoverished countries so they can start or expand their own small businesses. This enables business owners to earn a steady income to support their families and eventually rise out of poverty.

Eleva1The home sale that allowed Grand to make this donation was built in the Frisco Hills community in Little Elm. This is the fourth home Grand Homes has built with Homes for HOPE. Our fifth HOPE Home is currently under construction at Chadwick Farms in Fort Worth. For more information on our latest Home for Hope visit grandhomes.com or call our Chadwick Farms sales office at 682-237-7515.

Grand Homes is proud to be a part of this life changing opportunity and is extremely grateful for our amazing trade partners who helped make this effort possible. We could not have done it without them!

Model Sneak Peek at Mira Lagos

Dallas New Homes, DFW, Grand Homes, Grand Prairie, Homes for Sale, Mira Lagos, New Home

If you think you’ve seen our Mira Lagos model home, think again! We’ve made some changes to our Grand Emerald III floor plan and are excited to see what you think! The biggest change you will notice is the minimization of the three car garage to a two car garage in order to make the kitchen and utility room bigger. This also allowed us more space for the addition of a mud cabinet. We also installed new nail down hardwood flooring downstairs, on the catwalk and in the upstairs gameroom. Also upstairs, we’ve completely redecorated the children’s rooms and utilized our LifeSpace option to convert the 5th bedroom into an additional study.

If you have never been to Mira Lagos, it’s a beautiful master-planned community just off the shores of Joe Pool Lake in Grand Prairie. A series of lakes, waterways, fountains, and greenbelts flow through this neighborhood preserving a naturally serene setting. The Grand Homes neighborhood is adjacent to one of three amenity centers and is near the exemplary Anna Mae Daulton Elementary School. Amenities include swimming pools, playgrounds, jogging paths, sports fields, and lots more!

Hurry! Plans are in the works for a new phase here but as of right now there are only two Grand lots in Mira Lagos left for sale! With these lots comes the opportunity to build new and be a part of the construction process. Looking to move sooner? We have an extremely limited number of homes that are ready or will soon be ready for move in.

We’d love for you to stop by and see all the new additions to the model for yourself. Our redecorated model home is located at 3003 England Parkway, Grand Prairie, TX 75054. Come see us this weekend for our Pre-Grand Opening event and take advantage of our current promotions before it’s too late!
