Allen, TX was just named the second best place to live in Texas by NerdWallet.com!

This is what they had to say about Allen:

As one of our large communities with lower crime in Texas, and with the third-best education score on our list, it’s no surprise that Allen comes in near the top of our rankings. It appears homeowners agree, since 78% of households in Allen own their homes — a much higher rate than the median of 59.9% for large cities. The Dallas suburb prides itself on its arts and culture, from a quilters guild to the Collin County Ballet Theatre. The community is also home to National American University-Allen and Collin College.”

Grand Homes has two beautiful communities in this North Texas city – Landings of Kittyhawk and Cumberland Crossing.

01_FrontThe Landings of Kittyhawk is located off Stacy Road, between Central Expressway and the Sam Rayburn Tollway. Allen Premium Outlets, Topgolf, The Village at Allen and Allen High School are nearby. But you don’t have to go far for some fun! The Landings boasts an amenity center, neighborhood pool and playground. We currently have one home that is ready for move in at this community.

This community is heavily treed with a greenbelt, hike & bike trails, an amenity center and pool. We currently have two move in ready homes here

This is a great city to raise a family with free events, clubs, libraries and an award winning parks and recreation there’s never a dull moment in Allen! Click here to see the original article, including other Texas cities that made the list.

The Dallas Cowboys, Big Tex, and a perfect skyline. If you live in Dallas or have ever visited, these are just a few things you probably love about our city. Over the past few years we have seen the city we love expand north into the suburbs known as Frisco, Allen and Plano. Just a short drive up 75 or the Dallas North Tollway and you will be surrounded by plenty of shopping, dining, sports and leisure activities to fill your family’s free time.

Frisco, Plano and Allen all have great shopping and dining choices but they also have their individual attractions. Frisco is a sports lover’s dream! It is home to the Frisco Roughriders, Texas Legends, FC Dallas and the Dr Pepper Arena where the Dallas Stars hold team practice. Not to mention the Dallas Cowboys are moving into the neighborhood soon and will begin hosting practice in the city as well. The latest spot to hit Frisco is iFly indoor skydiving where you and the family can finally realize your dreams of flying without having to jump out of a plane!

Plano sits right on the other side of 121. JC Penney, Cinemark Theatres, Frito-Lay, Yum Foods (Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, KFC) and Capital One are among plenty of other Fortune 500 companies who have decided to locate their headquarters here. The Plano Balloon Festival also takes place here once a year. It’s the one weekend out of the year where skydivers, hot air balloons and music fill the air over the city.

The next city over is Allen, Texas. The Allen Event Center hosts the 2013 CHL Presidents’ Cup Champions, the Allen Americans hockey team. Aside from hockey games, the Allen Event Center hosts concerts, family events such as Disney on Ice, trade shows and more. One of two Hydrous Wake Park locations is situated in Allen where water skiers and wake boarders use an overhead cable system rather than being pulled by a boat. Last but not least, Allen’s most recent claim to fame is the one-of-a-kind, $60,000 Allen Eagle Stadium where Allen High School football home games are held.

As you drive along 121, between the Dallas North Tollway and 75, you will have passed three of our Grand Homes communities: Northglen, Landings of Kittyhawk and Cumberland Crossing.

Northglen, one of our newest communities, is located closest to Frisco but is technically in Plano. Construction has begun on the model home and the first homes will be ready for move in by the start of 2014. Northglen is also located within the highly sought-after Frisco ISD attendance zone.

Our model home at the Landings of Kittyhawk in Allen has recently been decorated and furnished. This community comes complete with an amenity center, neighborhood pool and playground. Construction on the first few homes at this community will be complete by the end of the year.

Between the two is Cumberland Crossing. This neighborhood also comes with an amenity center, pool and a trail system that winds through the community and will eventually connect with the City of Allen Park & Trail system.

Whether you’re relocating within DFW or from out-of-state remember there is tons to do for all ages when you take a short drive north of Downtown Dallas. Click here to find more information on Northglen, Landings of Kittyhawk, Cumberland Crossing and all Grand Homes communities.
