Welcome to Prosper
Peace, privacy, and space north of the city
From the expansive, custom homes of Christie Farms to the range of residential styles and sizes in peaceful Gentle Creek, Prosper offers a wealth of options to those seeking a new abode in pastoral Texas. In a fresh, new boutique community, residents enjoy peaceful surroundings yet still have access to all the amenities they could want. North of downtown Dallas and northeast of downtown Fort Worth, Prosper allows easy access to both metropolitan areas while promising a sparsely populated community to call home.
What to Love
There’s truly something for every taste in Prosper. Families can choose from 900-acre communities such as Star Trail, with homes crafted by some of the best builders in the region and highly acclaimed Prosper Independent School District schools, or the master-planned community of Lakes of LaCima, with parks, playgrounds, a splash pool, and more.
Perhaps Whitley Place is more your style, again with excellent schools, a broad range of home prices, and a beautiful natural setting around Wilson Creek. In Windsong Ranch, everything is connected by sidewalks and hiking and biking trails, making for a perfectly walkable, community-centric village feel. And in Highland Meadows, a well-kept Prosper secret, vast, 4,000-square-foot (or more) homes cater to those hoping for the most luxurious of residences. With amenities such as community swimming pools, neighborhood parks and playgrounds, jogging paths, private lakes, and homeowners associations, each pocket village in Prosper feels like a small town unto itself.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Living up to its name, The Gates of Prosper, this vibrant shopping center offers everything from casual eateries to big-box stores with all the conveniences for home life. Get your nails done, pick up new fashions and grab a pizza on your way back to your neighborhood. The Shops at Legacy are also nearby, with 168 acres of open-air dining, entertainment, and shopping. Browse at Benefit Cosmetics, Apricot Lane Boutique, Ella Bleu, and TravisMatthew. Pamper yourself at Kevin Charles Salon. Then, stick around for an evening of laughs at The Plano House of Comedy, with the best in the stand-up biz.
When it’s time to dine, The Shops at Legacy serve everything from teppanyaki to tapas. Choose from more than 380 wines at CRÚ, paired with light bites. Head to Farm + Feed, a lively restaurant-combination-game spot that merges a chef-driven eatery, full bar, high-end gaming technology, and old-school board games. Or, sit down to a white tablecloth steak dinner in a mahogany booth at Bob’s Steak & Chop House, ranked as one of the country’s top steakhouses.
Things to Do
Die-hard Dallas Cowboys fans will appreciate Prosper’s proximity to The Star, a 91-acre campus with the NFL franchise’s world headquarters and practice facility. Explore The Star District, with more than 35 restaurants, shops, and specialty services. Premier eateries include Lombardi Cucina Italiana, Dee Lincoln Prime, and Roti Grill. There is truly a dizzying list of hot and up-and-coming culinary options. From chic flea market finds to the Dallas Cowboy Pro Shop to spa moments, the shops at The Star don’t disappoint either.
Prosper golfers are drawn to the Gentle Creek Golf Club, with its challenging yet scenic D.A. Weibring design. Take on 235 acres of manicured fairways, wooded countryside, rolling terrain, elevation changes, picturesque water features, and large TifEagle Bermuda greens. Other nearby courses worth a day out (or two!) include WestRidge Golf Course and The Trails of Frisco Golf Club.
