Any insight into this neighborhood in terms of safety, amenities, schools, property values etc. Do home values hold up pretty well here?
Homes seem newish for Plano (late 90s). Is this considered a luxury neighborhood (given the Estates moniker)?

Thanks.

This is the only one on market. Its a nice neighborhood, schools are excellent, location is good and lot is 0.36 acre with nice landscaping. House is B+ but that's subjective, overall all package looks good.

I don't think having "estates" in the name means anything around here. Some neighborhoods with that are extremely nice & others it seems the developer dubs "estates" for marketing purposes to make it seem exclusive.

Heck, there's an apartment complex called "mansions" of Prosper in Prosper...and those are apartments! Names don't mean much.

Thank humilitea. Appreciate it. Why do you say house is B+? Any issues with it? Do you think it is overpriced?

Parents have lived in the adjoining neighborhood (Villages of Russell Creek) for 18 years, so I am quite familiar with this area.

Its definitely typical upper middle class suburbia but I definitely wouldn't consider it luxury. I am frankly a bit stunned that house you linked is over 500K. Seems a bit high IMO but I just moved back to DFW and am a bit out of touch with the real estate market here so take it FWIW.

And full disclosure: I do not have kids. But the elementary school that serves that area (Andrews) is one of the best in the district.
