Hurst homebuilder plans Craig Ranch sites

 


Our Country Homes of Hurst has purchased 21 custom home sites at The Settlement in Craig Ranch, the 2,200-acre, master-planned corporate, residential and retail community in McKinney.
“We are one of the few developers in Collin County with well-located custom home lots on the ground, and we have seen a strong interest in these lots this year,” said Miles Prestemon, chief operating officer of Craig Ranch, commenting in a news release.
The transaction sees Our Country Homes make its first major expansion into Collin County after operating primarily in Tarrant County.
Our Country Homes plans to introduce what it calls a new Platinum Series of luxury home designs to the Collin County community. Construction on a model home and three additional home is scheduled to begin early this month. Home prices are expected to start from the $500,000s.
“We are excited about the opportunity to make Craig Ranch one of our first communities in Collin County,“ said Dustin Austin, president of Our Country Homes.
“We wanted to be in the most active luxury market in Dallas-Fort Worth area and clearly Collin County is the place to be,” said Austin, adding that his firm chose Craig Ranch because of what he called its unmatched signature amenities, Frisco schools and location.
Despite its newly announced McKinney incursion, Our Country Homes has built primarily in and around Fort Worth, concentrating on Northeast Tarrant custom neighborhoods in Hurst, North Richland Hills and Keller.
