Now Arriving: Grand Vie Luxury in Living



The spring 2015 issue of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine is out and is now being direct-mailed to 50,000 luxury homes across Dallas-Fort Worth. With this edition of Grand Vie, we are very pleased to present the addition of properties and Associates from Fort Worth’s leading real estate boutique, Williams Trew, an Ebby Halliday Company.


Grand Vie, now in its fifth year of publication, is bigger and better than ever. For this edition, we photographed two cover homes and produced two versions of the magazine (East and West) depending on which side of the Trinity River you reside.


In addition to the beautiful properties represented by Ebby Halliday and Williams Trew, we included two new special sections for farm & ranch and lake properties; Q&As with leading North Texas landscape architects Harold Leidner of Dallas and Angelynn Harvey of Fort Worth; and a new feature, “Houses of Art,” showcasing some of the area’s top cultural events of the season.


And, as if any of us needs another reason to own a Texas lake house, real estate blogger Candy Evans dishes on why a North Texas lake house may just be the perfect vacation home.


We’re confident you’re going to love the new Grand Vie. To view the digital version of North Texas’ premier luxury home publication, visit

Fresh Listing Friday: Gorgeous Frisco Find


Happy Friday, all! This week’s Fresh Listing Friday takes us to the stunning five-bedroom, 5 1/2-bath home at 6766 Reims Court in Frisco.

Listed for $939,000, this custom home features hardwood and travertine flooring, plantation shutters, a private first-floor guest suite, a mudroom, and an open floor plan.


The beautiful two-story entry is the perfect welcome home with a curved staircase, travertine flooring, and access to the formal dining room. In total, this home has two staircases, the second of which is located directly off the main living room, pictured below.


The open plan between the living room, kitchen, and breakfast area provides the ideal layout for gatherings large or small. The stone fireplace and the vaulted ceiling just add the the warmth and style of this space.


The kitchen is done to the nines! Granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, an island with seating, a walk-in pantry, a butler’s pantry, and direct access to the mudroom, breakfast room, and living room make this kitchen one to envy. Also on the first floor is a formal living room with a fireplace, a study/office, the aforementioned guest suite, and the master suite.


The master suite features a large jetted tub, a double shower, dual vanities with granite countertops, and a walk-in closet. You can see by the fixtures in the picture above that no detail has been overlooked.


The remaining three bedrooms, a game room, and a media room that also serves as a third living room can all be found on the second floor.


The backyard of this home is pretty spectacular, as you may have already guessed. There is a spacious covered patio with a built-in grill and a pool with a gorgeous waterfall and an attached spa.


Pretty amazing right? If you’d like to see this home for yourself, head over on Sunday for the open house that will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. For further information on the property, click any of the images above.
