Frisco Neighborhood Guide – Lone Star Ranch

Lone Star Ranch (LSR) is a master planned community of over 1,400 homes among rolling hills with hike and bike trails, streams, lakes, fountains, open spaces, and almost two thousand trees. Lone Star Ranch offers one of the most luxurious Amenity Centers in the Frisco area featuring a three tiered, resort-style swimming pool with waterfalls, slides and kiddie splash pool.

Location

Lone Star Ranch is located in southwest Frisco between the Dallas North Tollway and FM 423.

Restaurants & Shopping

To the east of LSR, at the intersection of Lebanon and Legacy, you will find a large concentration of retail space. Vendors include Kroger, Walmart Neighborhood Market, CVS, Starbucks, McDonald’s, Sonic, Bank of America, Chase Bank, Wells Fargo Bank and many smaller businesses such as dentists, nail/hair salons, massage therapists, dry cleaning services and pizza parlors.

To the west of LSR, at the intersection of Lebanon and FM 423, there are construction projects underway that will be anchored by Tom Thumb and HEB Food Stores. Tom Thumb is scheduled to open in September 2013 while HEB is targeted for 2014.

Homes

While LSR was established in 2004, the Austin Ridge and Highland Ridge villages are still being built out with many lots currently available. Prices start in the mid 200’s and go up. There are also homes for sale in the existing villages.

Amenities

The amenities at Lone Star Ranch truly set it apart! While the multi-tiered pool is a huge draw to homeowners, the LSR community also enjoys a fully equipped fitness center that is diligently maintained with all equipment serviced on a regular basis. You won’t find 10 year old treadmills at this location – nothing but state-of-the-art exercise machines are available.

In addition, the LSR Club House is a grand facility that can be rented by the hour for a nominal fee by all homeowners. It is decorated in true Texas style, has a full kitchen and a massive Austin-stone fireplace that soars to the ceiling of the facility.

Finally, the common grounds of the community are spectacular. Hike and bike trails meander throughout the community and are complimented by several lakes, creeks and play grounds. You won’t find quality landscapes like this just anywhere in Frisco. These common areas are meticulously kept and make for an incredible environment to live and play.

Schools

Lone Star Ranch is assigned to the following Frisco ISD schools:

Quirks

Strangely, the Lone Star Ranch community is bisected by Lebanon Road. The villages of Lakeside, Austin Ridge and Highland Ridge are due south of Lebanon which makes for getting to the Amenities of the community a small challenge. That being said, those three villages have a greenbelt that runs across their locations so the trade-off is worth it.
