Low-Maintenance, Luxury Living

Who said homeownership couldn't be both elegant and effortless?

So many of us think of home ownership as a forever commitment: the first excitement of signing the paperwork, additions built to accommodate your growing family, then endless repairs until suddenly, the upkeep starts to feel like a second job. If you’re exhausted thinking about your house’s much-needed maintenance, yard work, and decor and appliance updates, your current home may be weighing you down.

Rethink Your Space

Low-maintenance living in Dallas is becoming downright luxurious with more and more residents looking to offload the burdens that come with traditional home ownership. New, gated developments offer a reduced-stress lifestyle without compromising the home’s function, space or style. The developers of The Lawn at Glen Abbey, for instance, have taken the elements Dallas homeowners love: traditional and transitional architecture, cutting-edge amenities, and top-notch security and have designed a community that is premium, private and planned to achieve a cozy, neighborhood vibe.

Feather Your Empty Nest

Are you an empty nester? It may be time to rethink your space to consider your current, carefree lifestyle. Instead of negotiating with college-bound kids to convert bedrooms into gyms and offices, Bob Thompson Homes offers updated floor plans dedicated to modern luxury: think his-and-her walk-in closets, reading nooks, and ample room for guests (and those future grandkids!). Why force your old house into a new mold when gorgeous communities are being designed with your lifestyle in mind?

Easy Elegance

Dallas’s real estate market is one of the most competitive in the country, and our desire for high-end interior design is unparalleled. Bob Thompson Homes’ upcoming community is set between two prominent Dallas country clubs; the one-of-a-kind residences are meticulously crafted, keeping local taste front of mind: bright, well-appointed kitchens, high ceilings, and opulent marble bathrooms. Heavenly! Trade high-maintenance lawns for high-end indoor/out entertaining spaces; upgrade your weekly movie night by enjoying films alfresco on your patio-mounted flat screen.

Love Your Lock and Leave

Many homeowners long for the freedom to travel, only to get caught up in the logistics of leaving. Choose a gated, guarded community planned to give residents the low-maintenance luxury of being able to lock-and-leave. Sip your piña colada (or French Bordeaux? or Singapore Sling? The local possibilities are endless!) with ease, knowing your home and valuables are safe. Families love the gated community layout because it pairs the convenient proximity to Keller Springs, Preston Road, and the Tollway with the safety of a closed community, reducing through-traffic and noise.

Shouldn’t your house be elegant and effortless? Homeownership is a luxury and The Lawn at Glen Abbey was designed to be just that: the North Dallas oasis where you have time to actually enjoy your home! Ready to throw away your honey-do list?
