Real estate agents across the region are reporting a rising demand for luxury homes with a smaller footprint and much greater attention to high-end finishes.
“Many buyers in the luxury market are asking to trade square footage for luxury details such as wine rooms, master suites with breakfast bars and multiple outdoor living spaces,” said Christy Berry of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
You can find the embodiment of that trend at 17 Green, where custom design and luxury details are the hallmark of the two- and three-bedroom townhomes in this gated neighborhood. It is in the award-winning Craig Ranch community in McKinney, ranked one of the best places to live in the United States.
First and foremost, the homes at 17 Green capture the essence of the outdoors. Picture windows, French doors, terraces and balconies on the first and second floors overlook the 200-acre back yard – the trees, creeks and native wildlife of the Audubon-certified TPC Craig Ranch grounds. The terraces serve as extensions of the indoor living space and include fireplaces and grills.
A second-floor entertaining space including a bar, accessible via either a dramatic staircase or an elevator, connects to a second-floor balcony – again, to capitalize on the view.
Master suites are more like spa retreats, with copper soaking tub, private terrace for sunset-watching, cozy fireplace and even a coffee bar – perfect for leisurely mornings.
The detached golf-cart garage makes this luxury lifestyle convenient, too. Residents can cruise to the TPC Craig Ranch clubhouse for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, through 17 Green’s private entrance.
“Convenience and luxury – that’s what buyers are looking for now,” Berry said.
