You've probably heard the term before, but do you really know what sets a master-planned community apart from a neighborhood? The answer is there in the name: "community."
An MPC like Trinity Falls near McKinney is a prime example of everything that residents can expect — and enjoy — when living there.
In an MPC, you'll find a wide variety of homes and prices, making it easy to move up or move down in homes as your needs change, all without leaving the community. Trinity Falls currently has six builders, including Highland Homes, Perry Homes, Del Webb, Plantation Homes, Chesmar Homes, and Drees Custom Homes.
For new buyers and young families, homes start as low as the mid-$200,000s. At the stage of life where you're ready to upgrade? There are plenty of gorgeous homes in the $400,000-$700,000 range. There's even a Del Webb neighborhood for active adults age 55 and older.
Live in nature
Since the community is, as the name implies, master-planned, all the homes are within walking distance of a park or other recreation option. Trinity Falls is located on 2,000 green acres along the Trinity River, with a dedicated five miles of trails that amble through B.B. Owen Park, the community's crown jewel.
In fact, upon completion there will be over 20 miles of wooded trails for residents to explore, along with five lakes, a dog park, and even an 18-hole disc golf course in nearby Discovery Park at B.B. Owen.
Enjoy your neighbors
The MPC lifestyle revolves around finding and forming life-long friendships, and that's even easier to do when there's an onsite Director of Fun planning meet-ups and special events. Because of the current pandemic, many events have gone virtual but in normal times residents can enjoy an array of concerts, parades, and trivia nights — around 150 events each year!
It's also common for an MPC to allot space for schools, retail, and more, and there is currently space for a McKinney ISD elementary and middle school, as well as several commercial tracts. A fire station has already opened in the community.
There are currently about 1,000 homes completed, with a goal of adding 4,000 more. If you’d like to check out Trinity Falls, a Johnson Development Community, for yourself, visit the website or contact one of the builders to set up a tour.
