An artistic enclave in northwest Frisco, 400-acre Newman Village features works of art in its community public spaces. The master planned community’s homes- built by a small group of distinguished homebuilders with attention to quality and detail- reflect Classical, Renaissance, Spanish, and Italian style architecture. Homes average between 2,700 and 6,500 square feet and are priced from the $500’s to $2M.
The neighborhood entrance includes a guardhouse surrounded by lush landscaping and detailed stonework. A 2.5-acre Italian themed garden provides a verdant welcome. A series of walking paths and exercise trails throughout the community give residents opportunity to enjoy the lovely landscaping and works of art as well as socialize with neighbors. Gated access gives residents a feeling of security.
Community events include a July 4th picnic and parade, pumpkin patch and hayride in the Fall, and Christmas festivities.
Access to Corporate and Retail
Located west of Legacy Drive between Eldorado Parkway and Panther Creek Parkway, the neighborhood provides convenient access to corporate and retail establishments. A quick trip down the Dallas North Tollway brings commuters to Legacy Business Park, which is home to major corporate employers such as Toyota North America, Ericsson, FedEx, FritoLay and PepsiCo.
The neighborhood also offers proximity to Frisco’s more than 9 million square feet of shopping and dining space, including Stonebriar Centre, IKEA, and the shops and cafes of historic Frisco Square.
The neighborhood is zoned within the Frisco Independent School District, with neighborhood children attending Newman Elementary School, which is within walking distance, as well as Trent Middle School, and Lone Star High School.

FC Dallas, a professional soccer team, plays at 20,000-seat Toyota Stadium.

Frisco appeals to fitness enthusiasts and nature lovers with its 1,369 acres of developed park space (and 744 acres of undeveloped park space). In addition, the City offers diverse recreational opportunities from ice skating to indoor rock climbing and indoor skydiving.
Frisco embraces its rapid growth without relinquishing a feel of a close-knit community with events like the Frisco Freedom Fest, an action-packed festival held over the Independence Day holiday. And Christmas in the Square blankets the downtown square in “snow,” creating a magical winter wonderland each December.
