No one could have envisioned the tumultuous socioeconomic environment the United States has faced over the past several weeks. There has not been a single person or industry untouched during this time.
Good news stories have been rare, but the strength of local communities and neighborhoods have prevailed through it all. Home is where the heart and the entire household has been for days on end and finding new, creative ways to enjoy your “home base” has become essential. It is interesting that during this time, the developers of Windsong Ranch are receiving high praise from their residents. This is due in large part to the community’s creative open land plan and amenity mix.
“I’ve always said this is a special place, said Craig Martin, developer of Windsong Ranch and partner of Tellus Group LLC. “Our residents are the biggest reason why, but the overall design of the community certainly is a wonderful backdrop.
“Windsong Ranch has over 30 miles of wide walking, hike-and-bike trails, pocket parks, large event lawns and esplanades, a full disc golf course, mountain bike course and large stocked lakes. Families want big outdoor spaces they can enjoy together, so these are very popular areas for our residents during this time.
“In the initial stages of planning the community, we knew our residents would love these wonderful areas, but we never knew how important they really could be for families,” said Martin. It’s been wonderful to see our residents continue to be a community of active, happy people during this historic event.”
The amenities are also a big reason why Windsong Ranch was recently recognized as one of the nation’s top master-planned communities for the second consecutive year.
Windsong Ranch was the first community in North Texas to add a Caribbean beach-like freshwater lagoon to its amenity offering. Residents and their guests can enjoy stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming and sunbathing on the white sand beaches.
Other popular amenities include The Commons, which is directly adjacent to a large event lawn. This is where residents go to enjoy the Windsong Ranch Café, an outdoor living area, resort-style pools with cabanas and grilling areas, a state-of-the-art fitness center, four lighted tennis courts, pickleball and basketball courts and a kids’ creative play area.
In addition, there is also a community garden with a historic windmill and a dog park.
“Windsong Ranch offers a beautiful selection of homes from a team of exceptional builders,” said Martin. Homes are priced from the high $200s to over $1 million and include options ranging from townhomes and villas to single-family homes.
Lot sizes are between 50 and 86 feet.
The builder team at Windsong Ranch includes American Legend Homes, Belclaire Homes, Drees Custom Homes, Grenadier Homes, Highland Homes, Huntington Homes, MainVue Homes, Shaddock Homes, Shaddock-Caldwell Custom Homes, Southgate Homes and, coming later this year, Tradition Homes. Models are open daily for tours. Upon completion, Windsong Ranch will consist of 3,324 single-family homes and 150 acres of mixed-use development. The community is located at 1001 Windsong Parkway S., 2½ miles west of the Dallas
