Final lots, homes selling quickly in luxury 55-plus community

Limited opportunities remain in Orchard Flower, an award-winning 55-plus community showcasing low-maintenance living, numerous amenities and a location approximately 10 miles from DFW International Airport. Thanks to record-breaking home sales this year, limited homesites remain and opportunities to build the most popular floor plans are dwindling.

The single-story home at 2000 Viburnum is available now. This plan offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a formal dining room and a two-car garage. The open-concept kitchen, dining and family room are connected to the covered patio. The spacious primary suite has a spa-like bathroom with a European-style walk-in shower and a walk-in closet connected to the laundry room. The residence is listed for $494,990.

Another move-in-ready option is at 1913 Heliconia. This single-story home features three bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms, an open family room with a statement fireplace, a designer kitchen, a formal dining room, a covered patio and a two-car garage. It includes a flex space with an attached bathroom and could be used for guests. The luxury primary suite has a spa-like bathroom with a walk-in shower, double vanities featuring an extended makeup counter and a walk-in closet that connects to the laundry room. The price of this home was recently reduced to $539,990.

All Grenadier Homes residences in Orchard Flower include courtyards or front porches and covered patios for socializing. The community HOA takes care of fence maintenance, mowing and the irrigation of front and side yards, so homeowners can “lock and leave as they please,” said a company spokesperson.

Start “living your best” in a new Orchard Flower home. Visit the sales office at 1955 Viburnum Drive in Flower Mound. To reach the community heading south on State Highway 121, exit at MacArthur Boulevard and turn right on MacArthur. Turn left on Round Grove Road and continue for 3 miles.
