McKinney Has a Mix of Historic Downtown Homes, Well-Taken Care of Classics, and Gated Estates

Share News:

There’s a lot to love about McKinney, the Collin County seat that’s got one of the best historic downtown squares hands down. There are about 120 shops and two dozen restaurants in this commercial downtown district. The agenda here: Shop the clothing boutiques at 540 Mercantile, enjoy dinner at The Pantry Restaurant, stop for coffee at fILTER(ed) Craft Coffee House, shop antiques at Special Things, eat pie at Emporium Pies, and grab a pie (or half dozen) to go.

We found a lot to love about the homes here, but our very favorite detail is this original clawfoot tub in an early American Craftsman home built in 1890. See the home that tub belongs to and two other great homes we found for sale in McKinney.
