Design and build your dream home in less than half the time it typically takes to build a home. Truly.
When you choose to finish out a shell at 17 Green, the luxury lock-and-leave neighborhood in McKinney’s master-planned Craig Ranch community, moving in will take you three to four months. Consider that building a new home from start to finish typically takes 14 months, and the 17 Green timeline fits even the busiest schedule.

“That’s the freedom we’re trying to offer with these townhomes,” said Craig Ranch COO Miles Prestemon. “It provides the utmost flexibility.”

These aren’t the typical townhomes. Each is two or three stories, with only a stairwell and elevator shaft to design around inside. The rest of the square footage is wide open, and ready for any floor plan.

“We’re finishing out two of the shells right now, and the builder has given the owners a four-month timeline,” said Gina Lester of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. “It’s gone pretty quickly compared with building a new house.”

Lester said the square footage often surprises potential buyers who tour the homes at 17 Green. You don’t need to sacrifice on space and amenities, she said. The smallest townhome is more than 3,700 square feet. With no internal load-bearing walls, the finish-out can accommodate any tastes.

“The only thing you have to plan around is the elevator shaft and a stairwell – you can create any floor plan you want,” she said. “It’s up to your wildest dreams. I’ve never experienced a townhome neighborhood like this.”
