400 AcklingtonEverything is bigger in Texas, and that certainly holds true in the residential real estate of Dallas’ northern suburbs.

But spacious houses can be hard to come by under $300K, so today’s Tuesday Two Hundred listing at 400 Acklington Dr. in Anna caught my eye with 3,701 square feet, four big bedrooms, and 2.5 baths. It is newly listed by Steve Warren at Re/Max Dallas Suburbs for $289,900.

That’s just over $78 a square foot—right on par with comparable sales in the area, which have ranged from $63 to $100 a square foot (and this house is the biggest in size of the recent sales I’ve found).

Anna is located about 11 miles northeast of McKinney and 40 miles north of Dallas on U.S. Highway 75, State Highway 5, and State Highway 121. Those highways make getting around DFW a cinch. It’s also one of the fastest growing cities in Collin County with about 11,000 residents and offers great amenities, like Natural Springs Park, which is walking distance from the house. This heavily wooded park has a spring that feeds into a pond, as well as a large open space. Future plans for the park include walking trails with three bridges, picnic tables, benches, a gazebo, and a fishing pier.

The house is also only 1.9 miles away from Slayter Creek Park with its splash pad, playground, walking trail, skateboard park, horseshoe pits, shuffleboard court, disc golf course, athletic fields, and large pavilion. Jump to read more and see lots of pics of the house!
