Convenience is everything when it comes to finding the right house, but luxury should never be compromised. Enter Normandy Estates — a European-style neighborhood in West Plano — that simply has it all.

“The vision is to bring Normandy Estates to life as a vibrant luxury villa and estate home community; the vision was and still is to build a European-style luxury residential community in a coveted location,” says Marc Powell, president of Starside Custom Builders (the developer for the neighborhood).

Coveted it is. Normandy Estates is conveniently located right off the North Dallas Tollway, on Spring Creek Parkway, spanning past Beauregard Lane.

“We like to say that Normandy Estates is the most convenient address outside of Dallas,” Powell says. “The neighborhood is conveniently located near top businesses, and there is easy access to major highways, airports and rapid transit. This upscale residential neighborhood is also situated within close proximity to high-end shopping and retail and recreational activities.”

The luxury community is less than 10 minutes away from the Shops at Legacy — an exquisite destination for top-notch dining and shopping; and the Shops at Willow Bend, Plano’s premier indoor shopping mall.

Further seducing Normandy Estates residents is Plano’s Independent School District, which includes 70 schools from elementary and middle school to top-tier high schools.

Additionally, Powell explains, “The development is a premier gated custom home community that features 75 acres of gently sloping hills, tree-lined creeks, a lake with a fountain and fishing dock, and a nature trail for walking and jogging.”

There’s a community amenity center with a fitness facility, swimming pool, and pavilion. The villa homes are between 3,500 and 4,00 square feet, while the average estate homes are at least 6,000 square feet.

“Our villa homes attract empty-nesters who want a luxury villa with less maintenance. Many of the villa floor plans feature three bedrooms with a downstairs master suite and a second bedroom downstairs,” Powell adds. “Our estate homes attract growing families. These homes are built on larger lots, starting at half of an acre. Many of these homes border the creek, lake and hiking trails, giving a tranquil setting for city living.”

Normandy Estates is the last gated community built in Plano and boasts six esteemed Texas-based custom builders — Alford HomesBob Thompson HomesHawkins-Welwood HomesMark Smith Custom HomesSharif Munir and Starside Custom Builders.

Future homeowners can’t get much butter than the luxury and location of Normandy Estates.
