Boasting over 550 acres of wooded creeks, regal oak trees, and unbelievable views, Frisco’s Starwood gated Community is located just off the Dallas North Tollway approximately 26 miles north of downtown Dallas.
Starwood homes are designed by some of Dallas’ premiere builders and range in price from the $400’s to over $4 million, appealing to many different design tastes and home preferences. The Starwood Community has an abundance of special amenities including a newly remodeled Community Center, indoor sports court, fitness center with weights and cardio equipment, children’s playground, family and children’s pools, and tennis courts. Take a stroll on one of the wooded walking trails, relax at one of the neighborhood parks, creeks, or lakes, or even enjoy the sounds of splashing water from the beautiful waterfalls and fountains. Additionally, Starwood has 24/7 security with gated entrances and exits.
Starwood residents have a true sense of community. Residents gather throughout the year to celebrate special occasions including a Dad’s campout, Memorial Day Fun Run, 4th of July Parade, and the annual Light Up Starwood with Santa Claus and horse drawn carriage rides.
Not only do Starwood residents enjoy community features, but also those of the City of Frisco. Currently experiencing unbelievable growth, the City of Frisco possesses a beautiful new City Hall and Library, many top-of-the-line Fire and Police Stations for the safety of its residents, a Senior Center, natatorium, and several sports and recreation centers. In addition, several new developments are in the works including Wade Park, a major mixed-use center by Thomas Land & Development, and the new home of the Dallas Cowboys World Corporate Headquarters.
Fine shopping and dining can be experienced minutes away at The Shops at Starwood, Stonebriar Centre, and Frisco Square or just down the Tollway to Plano’s The Shops at Willow Bend or The Shops at Legacy.
Children who live in Starwood Community will attend Frisco Independent School District. Frisco ISD was named one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People in 2012 and Best Communities for Music Education in 2013. The District was named to the College Board’s AP District Honor Roll in 2013 as well and the City of Frisco has been named to lists of the best places to live, best places to relocate, best places to raise an athlete and more.With more than 49,000 students enrolled in 7 high schools, 13 middle schools, 37 elementary schools and 4 special programs centers, Frisco ISD is among the fastest growing school districts in the nation. However, the Board of Trustees remains committed to personal learning environments with low student/teacher ratios.
