The Colony May Challenge Us in Headline Writing, But Delights Us With Great Homes

Do you know how difficult it is to write headlines with a city whose name begins with the article The? The answer is very as I came to learn more than a decade ago when I was community newspaper editor for The Colony. But despite the clunky headlines I may have written, the stories I came to tell about The Colony are among my favorite because they recorded the small town personality of this Denton County city with all the nearby amenities of the big city. For this week’s Suburb Sunday, I’ve found three great houses in The Colony ranging from $235,ooo to $659,000 that’d make any homeowner happy no matter the price range.

Huge Executive Home Has a Perfect Master Suite

Terry Hendricks of RE/Max DFW Associates is showing this enormous five-bedroom home next Saturday, July 27 from 12 to 2 p.m. in east The Colony (see, it’s hard to write!!), but first take a peek here. Wood floors flow throughout much of the first floor in this open floorplan home with chef’s kitchen that opens to the living area. There’s one bedroom downstairs, and four bedrooms upstairs, including the master that has a huge step-up sitting area and side computer room. Very smart.
