Developer David Craig was in the right place at the right time when he bought the first tracts of land for Craig Ranch 15 years ago, north of State Highway 121 in McKinney.

With northward expansion of the population and careful planning by Craig for the mixed-use development, the 2,200-acre planned community has been hugely successful, with 2,359 houses, more than 1,000 apartment homes, retail, and commercial space. It is one of the largest developments in Collin County and more than 9,000 people call Craig Ranch home; in January, it enters the final phases of residential build-out.

For Craig, that means plans to build a final 1,434 houses and more than 3,000 apartment homes over the next 28 months. Builders will be Ashton Woods Homes, Beazer Homes, Darling Homes, David Weekley Homes, Landon Homes, and Megatel, with houses ranging in price from $300,000 to more than $600,000. Craig’s partner in the development is VanTrust Real Estate.

“This final phase of residential construction in Craig Ranch is timed perfectly with the strong housing demand in the area,” David Craig, founder and developer of Craig Ranch, told GlobeSt.com. “We expect to have 20,000 residents when this next generation of homes is complete in about five years.” Jump to read more!

Cathy Browne has done it again! She’s found another amazing luxury home in Collin County that is stunning inside and out and has some incredible amenities. Not only was it built by one of the more highly sought after custom builders in Collin County, Huntington Homes, in the sought-after Twin Creeks-Somerset addition.

And this home, from the curb appeal to the tidy and relaxing backyard, is a wonderful home for anyone who values quality and timeless design.

As a golfer, I love The Tribute. This is a fantastic golf community that has a wonderful clubhouse and a gorgeous course. If you’re not familiar, The Tribute’s golf course is modeled after links-style Scottish courses that make you focus on your ball-placement and short game. It’s challenging and beautiful.
