Many people, including myself, consider 941 Circle in the Woods to be the flagship home, not only of Fairview, but all of Collin County. One thing's for sure, there will never be another like it considering the dramatic topography, interior finishout craftsmanship, intricate stonework, and impeccably manicured grounds.
The home rests atop a dramatic, steep, heavily wooded lot which we’ve been told is one of the highest points in Collin County. The views to the east over the trees are unobstructed to the horizon. Cobbled driveways lead from the three remotely controlled security gates to the home. The stonework is phenomenal and really highlighted from the street below.
Massive intricately carved double doors with cast-iron ion head knockers lead to a grand formal entry then to an enormous great room beyond with a 33’ tall vaulted ceiling and heavy beamed trestle supports.
Built in 1992, the home has been exquisitely updated. It features extensive handscraped hardwood and travertine floors and granite countertops throughout. Every room in this exquisite residence has been given special attention. The home features geothermal heating and cooling. All four floors are serviced by an elevator.
The grounds are just as spectacular with more phenomenal stonework, a classic European garden with large fountain, massive outdoor fireplace, tall sheer descent waterfalls, and impeccably maintained grounds. There is also a large greenhouse on the property.
Surprisingly, this home is only several minutes from the intersection of Hwy 121 and Hwy 75, two major arteries leading west, north, and south. It's only 7-8 minutes from Frisco and a direct shot to DFW Airport. If you’re an airplane owner, McKinney Airport is right around the corner. Best of all, the home is in Lovejoy ISD, one of the perennial top three public schools in all of Texas per the Texas Education Agency.
This home would be impossible to replicate. It's truly a one of a kind property and always will be. An insurance replacement appraisal had the property valued at $7.9 million and I think that's a fair assessment especially considering the challenges of the lot.
