I looked at Normandy estates also... but I'm leary since it is so far west.

No need to worry as that's a great location and all estate lots are PISD. Normandy Estates are too expensive. Homes START at 1.5 million, villas at $900k even townhomes are 500k or above. If you can expand your budget than it has only true custom builders to materialize your dreams into reality.

These lots look a bit expensive for the size. Are there any inventory or resale properties in this community? I like the area and it feeds to Barksdale,at least some of it does.

Wow! For myself, this is a wonderful house!
The furniture looked like it did not 'fit'. The diningroom table was square in an a long room. The bedrooms were not really 'furnished'- they had just a few non committal items. There were table/chairs all over.
I think you could 'soften' the rooms easily with 'more' furniture!
I would buy it in a heartbeat, if I were looking now.
Just get a good designer to soften the look.
Best of luck in your search

It seems that they bought those tables and chairs in bulk and ran out of money to buy pieces that they really needed. House is beautiful and deserves better decor.

I've seen Watercrest in person. Very nice home, amazing kitchen, media room and pool. Overall very clean and tidy.
Master bedroom and kids bedrooms are small. No storage and the two other rooms upstairs need some work. OP must know what I am talking about.
They were designed for another purpose than bedrooms. One of them is actually a Laundry room, I am not keen on having it upstairs. The other room is a workout room.

I thought you couldn't market a room as a bedroom unless it had a closet. Maybe that's another state's rules I'm thinking of.

I hate upstairs laundry rooms.

With 5 bedrooms, one room can be a huge closet/storage. I like laundry room on main floor but its good to have another one upstairs, may be stacked washer/dryer in kids bathroom. They'll do their laundry without as much whining.
