Highland Homes’ owners spearheading the 800-acre project
The owners of Plano-based builder Highland Homes is planning a new 2,600-home community in Denton County.
The 800-acre Sandbrock Ranch community is being built in Aubrey, north of Lewisville Lake.
The new residential project is on part of a 2,400-acre ranch that Highland Homes’ owners Rod Sanders and Jean Ann Brock own at FM1385 and Bonar Road. Homes in the new development will start in price near $250,000.
"We purchased this land in 2003 as a place to enjoy our love of horses," Brock said in a statement.
"Now, we are sharing it with North Texas families who will find it a well-located, peaceful oasis as development in the Dallas area continues to surge northward."
Model homes in the Sandbrock Ranch are scheduled to open in June. David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes and Perry Homes are some of the builders.
The development will include a community center with a swimming pool and splash park and a fitness room. There are two lakes, hike-and-bike paths, an event lawn, recreational fields and play areas, and an amphitheater. Land also has been set aside for an on-site elementary school.
Brock and Sanders founded Highland Homes in 1985, now one of North Texas’ largest builders.
The company builds more than 2,800 homes annually in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.
