Suburb Sunday: Northern Collin County Homes With Country Charm

Share News:

Northern Collin County

Homeowners in Northern Collin County’s Anna and Melissa are enjoying the best of both worlds: They can savor the small-town character of living in the country, but their central location at U.S. 75 and SH 121 make commuting to their Billion Dollar Mile jobs in the city easy (or at least, easier.)  Now that’s a feat considering the unprecedented growth happening in Collin County — the fourth-fastest-growing county in the U.S., according to the latest Census Bureau estimates released in April. For this week’s Suburb Sunday, we’re taking a look at two homes in Anna and one in Melissa that give you country living with on-trend transitional interiors.
