INTRODUCING Adolphus Homes at Chapel Trails in McKinney!

Adolphus Homes at Chapel Trails in McKinney is a fantastic option for buyers looking to be south of 380 in a traditional home with a modern feel. Located minutes from both highways 75 and 380 is, Chapel Trails is a favorable location for both amenities nearby and easy access to get anywhere quickly.

Adolphus Homes has two models, the Ritz and the Bellemont. Both show very well as you can see from the pictures below.

Their plans start at 2,394 square feet and go up to around 3,400. They include too many upgrades to list but price out very well for what is included as a standard. Adolphus uses unused space very well like this doggie spot under the stairs! Brilliant!

Chapel Trails is only 56 lots and the lots are larger than what you normally see at this price point on a new home development. Pre-grand opening pricing will put the first couple buyers in a great opportunity for a sound investment.

Their master beds and baths have some amazing touches with the 3 square windows and super-oversized showers. Also, their balconies are huge and are a great addition for the back of the home. I have never seen above which is located in their second model. This is their selections room, a layout of almost every cabinet offered and will soon have different countertops installed to help new home buyers actually see what they are selecting! Amazing. Adolphus Homes have 5 inventory homes that should be available by the April/May timeframe.

In their second model the Bellemont, some other very impressive features are a step up gameroom and I noticed every secondary closet is HUGE! That is something every buyer looks for.

Plantation Homes at Trinity Falls in McKinney giving a $30,000 incentive for this month!

Plantation Homes at Trinity Falls in McKinney has an incredible $30,000 incentive! That may not seem like a big deal because of the normal price points we highlight but these homes are in the low $400’s!

Plantation currently has 6 Inventory homes available for immediate move-in!

The model home has a lot of requirements most buyers are looking for when choosing their new home.

Most builders in this price point take short cuts but the quality of the Plantation Home can really be seen while walking through the model.

Trinity Falls is HUGE! Like 2,000 acres HUGE! And that developer incorporated 450 acres of it as OPEN SPACE!

I drove over a bridge and there popped up this gorgeous lake. And this is just 1 of 5 lakes!

There is also a very unique neighborhood feature. Colorful metal butterflies are strategically placed throughout the development in the green space like below.

Trinity Falls also has a dog park, 2 Amenity centers planned (and most likely more),4 schools planned within the community, a tricycle racetrack, splash pads, hike and bike trails and catch and release for fishing on the lakes.

Plantation Homes is also running a promotion for new home buyers to not pay electricity for the entire first year! Sounds great to me!

Wynn Ridge Estates by K Hovnanian Homes in McKinney


Wynn Ridge Estates is an absolutely gorgeous section of Stonebridge Ranch in McKinney, Texas. They are currently at the end of phase 1 and just recently opened Phase 2 of around 70 lots.


The builders are K Hovnanian Homes, Highland Homes and David Weekley Homes. My choice here is CLEARLY K Hovnanian Homes! Here’s Why.


All 3 builders build a very good quality home and I would place them all at the same level. So next we go to price.


If you are sold on Wynn Ridge and LOVE the location like I do and all the builders are of the same quality, why not choose the least expensive home? When comparing square feet between the 3, K Hovnanian is at a minimum $30,000-$40,000 less than Highland!


Floorplans have better flow and options and elevations have a better eye catching appeal!


I can go on and on, but if you are looking for a new home in one of the most sought after communities in North Dallas, drive out and take a look.


Call or Text Brad Holden today at (469) 733-2723 for any questions on any new home community and ask how Brad can give you an additional $20,000 incentive if you contract on a K Hovnanian home here at Wynn Ridge in McKinney!

ANNOUNCING: The Fairways by Landon Homes at Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas and Frisco ISD


Landon Homes has started development at The Fairways at Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas. Landon Development has submitted a Final Plat for the development to the city of McKinneys Planning and Zoning Commission and it has been approved.


The location of The Fairways is pretty amazing being at the corner of Custer Road and Tour Drive in McKinney. A Main entrance into Craig Ranch from the west side from Custer.

The land was originally zoned commercial but rezoned to residential. At the South West corner of the land sits First United Bank which is on the corner of Custer and Collin McKinney/ Rolater.


The plans are for 24.05 acres cut up into 145 single family residential lots and 4 common areas. The Craig Ranch Villas and Estates have exploded with sales and closed homes lately by Highland Homes, K Hovnanian and Huntington Homes.


Today, I spoke to the developer at the site and things are definitely in action. Stakes are out and dirt is moving. The main entry will be off of Tour Drive into the community. Below is the view turning off of Custer towards the entry location. Absolutely stunning!


The Fairways will be mainly East and West facing properties and a standard size lot of 51 feet wide by 100 feet deep. Plans have not been released but the developer said that construction on the lots should be around the third quarter of 2014.


I have been involved with David Craig and Craig Ranch since 2005 and am so excited to see this prime location off of Custer turn into homes. The beauty of Craig Ranch is the Master Planned Live, Work and Play in the same area.


And having the TPC Craig Ranch in the community does not hurt anything at all. After speaking to David Craig today to catch up about Craig Ranch I was absolutely shocked about where the community is today! See the map below!


Besides Craig Ranch, you have a location off of Custer that will allow you to get to Highway 121 in a couple minutes, city of McKinney with Frisco ISD and to be able to buy a house in 2014 for under $300,000 is amazing!



Highland Homes is now sold out of the Villas and K Hovnanian Homes has 6 remaining homesites left. Huntington Homes in the Estates have 12 homes closed and many more in the pipeline.

My best guess is from the plat the homes will be front entry and be more of a patio product. Square footage could be 2,300-3,500? And prices on the sign say starting at $280’s.
