Named as one of the top five communities in the nation, Craig Ranch in McKinney is offering a one-of-a-kind lifestyle that has it all. Whether you are in the market for a townhome, single family or estate home, at Craig Ranch you can enjoy unsurpassed amenities that include soccer, volleyball and baseball fields, hike and bike trails as well as marquee venues such as the prestigious TPC at Craig Ranch golf course & club and Cooper Fitness Center & Spa. 

Andy Lilliston and his wife, Jane moved to Craig Ranch in 2007 after living in Plano for 30 years. “Our home sits on one of the main green belts,” said Lilliston. We love to look out and see the green grass! McKinney has always had a ‘small town’ feeling, but offers a lot of ‘big town’ opportunities and Craig Ranch is well thought of in surrounding towns.” 

A day in the life of a resident at Craig Ranch might look something like this: after dropping the kids off at one of the nationally acclaimed Frisco ISD schools, swing by the Cooper Fitness Center for a morning workout. Head to work in the corporate center at Craig Ranch, meet a client for a quick round of golf at the TPC and easily make it in time to watch your child’s soccer game. Later that evening, take a walk with the family along the fitness trail. All without ever leaving your neighborhood. 

Craig Ranch offers a large variety of family friendly community events for its residents. “Each summer we look forward to the Swim & a Movie at Riverwalk Pool,” said resident Vicki Schmitz. “You get to see so many of your neighbors out for a night of fun. The Rockin’ Ranch Moms group is also fantastic. It has been a wonderful way for the entire family to meet neighbors, make friends, and have Texas feel a little bit more like “home.” 

Two of the newest product offerings at Craig Ranch are the K. Hovnanian in The Villas and the Residences at Grand Lodge. K. Hovnanian will feature seven new floor plans created specifically for Craig Ranch, five of which are single story and targeted toward empty nesters. 

Buyers can choose from a Spanish, French or Traditional elevation with floor plans ranging from 2600 to 3200 square feet and most plans offering an optional bonus room. Homes will be priced from the mid-300s to mid-400s. The new model home is now open. 

The Residences at Grand Lodge will offer a select few the chance to own one of only 23 ultra-luxurious greenside lodgehomes with exclusive direct access to the world-class TPC Craig Ranch golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf. The exquisite architecture of these privately gated two- and three-story homes combine natural fieldstone and cut limestone exteriors with slate roofs, to create a true lodge feeling. With expansive interiors ranging from 3700- 5400 square feet, residents can build their dreams from a blank canvas or step into a custom home like none other for $1.2 to 2.4 million. 

The homes feature an exterior of natural fieldstone and cut limestone with slate roofs that bring to life a true lodge feeling. Standard features include a private elevator, multi-level covered patios, outdoor kitchens and wood burning fireplaces. Each homeowner receives their own exclusive membership to the TPC Craig Ranch as well as many other customized amenities such as direct access onto the course and front row seats to live competitive rounds of the PGA TOUR.
