The townhome landscape has changed dramatically over the past few decades. Today’s new construction townhomes are larger, more elegantly finished and feature the same open-concept planning and spacious outdoor living areas found in single-family homes. Today’s townhouse lives and feels like a detached home from the inside, without all the hassle and time sink of exterior maintenance.
By purchasing a new townhome you’ll spend a lot less money than you’d pay for a comparable single-family home in the same area. Why is this important? It allows buyers to choose nicer locations in sought-after neighborhoods where they wouldn’t typically be able to afford a new build home. It’s also a fantastic opportunity for homeowners with school-aged children to gain access to a top-tier school district.
With this idea in mind, Taylor Morrison Homes brought their popular upscale townhome community concept to the Dallas metro. One visit to McKinney homes for sale at Silverado and you’ll be blown away by the Taylor Morrison Difference.
One of America’s Most Livable Cities
Located just four miles from Allen, TX, named #2 most livable city in the United States by Money Magazine in 2017, McKinney offers the same historic charm and prosperous community setting. Perfectly sized, the city boasts just over 180,000 inhabitants, large enough to offer urban-style shopping, dining and entertainment yet small enough to enjoy a laid-back friendly suburban atmosphere.
Well connected to the full metroplex, McKinney real estate is convenient to major transportation thoroughfares including major job centers down Highway 121. US 380, US 75, DNT, Sam Rayburn and George Bush Turnpike are all easily accessible. Downtown Dallas is only 32 miles away for commuting or taking advantage of the sights and sounds of the big city.
Lock and Go Living
Owning a townhome is a great choice for buyers who don’t have the time to dedicate to mowing the lawn, weeding the flower beds or cleaning out the gutters. Whether you lead a busy life, love to travel or simply prefer to spend your weekends out and about having fun, townhome living gives you more free time to do the things you love.
Silverado is convenient to several performing arts venues along with a wide selection of golf courses, professional sports, outdoor recreation and all sorts of shopping opportunities. The community is only 15 minutes from beautiful McKinney Square and historic downtown offers eclectic shops and charming boutiques.
The lock and go townhome lifestyle makes it easy to head out the door at a moment’s notice to enjoy everything this dynamic area has to offer.
More Reasons to Choose a Townhome for Your Next Home
The advantages of townhome living go far beyond the ability to go camping over the weekend instead of trimming your shrubbery. Here are a few more of the benefits that come along with owning an attached-home:
- Beautiful Streetscape – townhome communities offer a variety of exterior designs but each elevation plays along a cohesive theme. Come home to a well-maintained neighborhood where you never have to worry about the neighbor not taking care of their home.
- Close-Knit Community – shared spaces lead to mingling between neighbors and people tend to get to know each other better than in a traditional neighborhood setting. Silverado offers seven different common areas.
- Lower Utility Bills – because units share one or two walls with an adjacent home, it’s less expensive to heat or cool your property.
- Pest Control and Inspections – many of the responsibilities that fall on the shoulders of a homeowner are not an issue for those who live in a townhome. Take a load off, knowing that you never need to worry about checking your roofing or dealing with pest control.
Quality schools are a great indicator that you’re moving to a great neighborhood, even if you don’t have students living at home. A community that takes care of education typically takes care of everything else, too. From parks and recreation to city management, safety and exciting local festivals and events, the more involved the members of a community the better place it is to live.
School-aged residents of Silverado are zoned for two highly rated school districts, Allen ISD and Frisco ISD.
- PK-6: Lois Lindsey Elementary
- 7-8: Walter and Lois Curtis Middle School
- 9-12: Allen High School
For higher education and continued learning, there are several colleges and universities situated within 20 miles of the community: Collin County Community College, The University of Texas Dallas, Richland College and The University of Phoenix Dallas Campus.
