I had the pleasure of living in the Brookstone subdivision my first 1.5 years in Texas. We loved it and wish we could have bought a home there in our price range at the time. We ended up moving a whole 1 mile away into Harvest Bend.
Brookstone is a very nice community with a variety of home sizes ranging from 3 bedroom up to 5+ bedrooms. The Home Owners Association (HOA) has a nice swimming pool, "kiddy pool", playgrounds, and large open area for playing ball, flying kites, and more. The HOA has several events a year, especially during the swimming season with "Dive-In Movie Night" or a cookout near the pool to enjoy. They do try to have family events during the holidays including an Easter Egg Hunt and Santa visits, to name a few. The swimming pool is gated and you must have a key card to enter, so it has a nice private feel to it.
The location of Brookstone subdivision is very appealing. You are near Eldorado which has Braums, What a Burger, Taco Bell, and a variety of other fast food. In addition, there is a Market Street grocery store, and Kroger all within a few miles. Going the other way out of Brookstone to McKinney Ranch Parkway, you have only a short drive to the Super Walmart for all your shopping needs. So, it feels like a rather "quiet" neighborhood without a lot of outside traffic or noisy roads, but still very close to all your shopping needs.
