Frisco, the Destination City to Call Home
There are many attractive options for homebuyers in the rapidly growing city of Frisco, Texas. This area is vibrant with opportunities, including an influx of businesses and an outstanding quality of life. The Star Frisco and Frisco Station offer easy access to a variety of shops, restaurants, and entertainment events. These venues and services attract residents from neighboring cities.
The Star Frisco at the Ford Center, home of the Dallas Cowboys
Many homebuyers follow the lead of several high-profile entities that have chosen to make Frisco their new home. For example, the Dallas Cowboys now call Frisco home in their $350 million, 91-acre headquarters and training facility called the Star in Frisco.
In the fall of 2016, the Dallas Cowboys moved its operations from Valley Ranch in Irving to The Star at the Ford Center, located at Warren Parkway and the North Dallas Tollway. The Ford Center complex, also referred to as the Star District, includes two outdoor practice fields, hotels, retail, restaurants, and shopping areas, a 1,500-space parking structure, and a football stadium. Also, through a partnership with the City of Frisco, the indoor field practice facilities used by the Dallas Cowboys are available for use by Frisco ISD students for athletic and related events.

Three Luxury Neighborhoods in One Prime Location
Homebuyers who seek a compelling community close to the Star District in Frisco may want to visit Stonebriar Village and the Villages of Stonebriar Park, located near State Highway 121 and the North Dallas Tollway. Both neighborhoods are within 5 minutes of The Star and Frisco Station, and homeowners in the Villages of Stonebriar Park have a back entrance/exit to walk to The Star and Frisco Station venues.
Lastly, consider the Starwood community. Located between Stonebrook Pkwy and Lebanon Rd, this luxury neighborhood borders the Star District to the north which means you’re not far from top-rated dining, events and more.
Stonebriar Village is a 24-hour guarded and gated community that offers a unique lifestyle with its selection of custom homes found along winding, tree-lined streets, rolling hills, distant scenery, and waterscapes that appeal to the senses.
Homeowners can walk their pets, jog, and ride bikes on the well-kept streets as they set out for one of two parks – Shadow Ridge and Biltmoore. Both parks offer kids’ play areas, basketball courts, benches, and pavilions that provide an ideal setting for a family picnic.
Because Stonebriar Village originally was part of a master-planned community that included the renowned Stonebriar Country Club, a beautiful 18-hole championship golf course runs through the neighborhood. As a result, many homeowners walk out the back door to one of the 18 fairways winding through the community.
The Stonebriar Country Club also features eight lighted tennis courts, a junior Olympic swimming club, and a 65-000 sq. ft. clubhouse with athletic facilities, pro shops, casual and fine dining facilities, social activities, and a children’s playroom.
You should visit The Villages of Stonebriar Park if you seek eye-popping French country estate architecture. This neighborhood is also a Guard Gated community offering custom home designs in six picturesque villages with lush, rolling meadows, stunning drive-up appeal, interior elegance, and comfort created by some of the area’s most respected custom builders.
Many of the properties at The Villages of Stonebriar Park are located on a meandering creek or the lake. However, the entire community provides plenty of wide open spaces among its fountains, native trees, and park-like common areas.
Located along the West side of the Tollway between Stonebrook Pkwy and Lebanon Rd, just behind The Star, Starwood is a desirable luxury neighborhood that is guard gated and comprised of beautiful homes with lush landscaping, winding streets, and charming cul-de-sacs. Starwood residents enjoy excellent amenities such as walking trails throughout the neighborhood, tennis courts, a fitness facility, community pool, and a playground.
The nearby schools are top-rated, and the shopping, dining, and entertainment options within walking distance from the neighborhood entrances and exits make this a great walkable neighborhood and a wonderful place to call home.
With its close proximity to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Starwood is ideal for those who need easy access to air travel. All in all, Starwood is an excellent option for people looking for a safe, family-friendly neighborhood with plenty of options for recreation and entertainment
