This afternoon the weather was absolutely perfect here in Texas. 77 degrees with a slight wind, sunny, and not a cloud in the sky! I have been wanting to walk around our soon to be neighborhood in downtown McKinney and take pictures of the houses that surround us. The neighborhood is unique in that there will be million dollar homes next to or across from $100,000 or less homes, and what’s more, this in no way decreases the property value of the nicer homes. Kinda cool.
My friend Amy Taylor was taking care of a girl who lives down there today so we met up and off we were to explore some of the neighborhoods. It is such a joy every time I drive over to the house. I try and take a different route every so often to see all the different homes and I’ll drive through the historic square every now and again just for fun. There is not one home alike. It is so nice and refreshing to see these homes because most houses i’ve seen in Texas nowadays are cookie cutter brick homes. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I just enjoy observing all the little details of the historical homes and LOVE all the colors and uniqueness in the architecture. Our house is nestled between two historical drives- College and Waddill so we get to drive past the BIG AMAZING homes every day. Some of the properties take up whole neighborhood blocks! It really is awesome to see. If you live close you should take an afternoon and wander around this historical district on foot or take a leisurely drive in your car. You won’t be disappointed.
Here are some of my favorites from the walk (I took way too many photos). Ahh to own one of these homes…maybe one day. Thanks Amy T for walking with me as I took pictures like a stalker around the neighborhood!
I love all the colors of the Victorian Homes!
Which one is your favorite??
There you have it! This is just a glimpse of what the area has to offer. Ryan and I would love to one day flip houses here!! This is our secret wish.
