Currently living on Gulf Coast of Mississippi with plans to relocate to Stonebridge Ranch. Looking at homes in 250-300,000 range and under 2600 sf. We are young retireds. What areas of Stonebridge should we avoid? What about Mayberry Park? Fairway Village? Fieldstone Place? Thanks for any information you can give us.

There are really no bad areas in Stonebridge Ranch (SBR). Some older ones that went up before the Savings and Loans collapse, but those are even nice.

Of the areas you listed, I like Mayberry Park the best because it is part of SBR just north of Virginia (new, excellent builders). Since your retired, I'm thinking life on a golf course sounds appropriate, so if that is the case, there are alot of homes in Fairway Village that sit on the Golf Course. The only thing with Fairway Village is that the builders there like Lennar are just mid-range.

If you can stand condo living, the Adriatica on Kings Lake has some Townhomes going up called 'Reflections of Dalmatia' that are selling now (over 50% sold out) and will sit in the new Croatian style village they are building. This village will have a Chocalate Factory, several Wine bistros, an English pub, lots of shops, etc. It is also on Kings Lake, which is gorgeous. They are very secretive about the pricing on these, but I'm guessing low 300s would get you in the door. Best investment upside in SBR.

You may also want to look at the new phase of Wren Creek that Darling homes is building:

Darling Homes - Dallas (http://www.darlinghomes.com/subdivision.aspx?MetroID=1000&SubdivisionId=1030 - broken link)

These start in the mid-200s and the community is excellent. There are also some resale homes there that are really nice as well. That's my favorite sub-300k area in SBR. I like Mayberry Park as well, but you need to appreciate that classic style of home.....it's not the traditional brick and stone TX home. Looks more CO-CA like to me. But many people do like the look.
