Craig Ranch announced the sale of 21 custom home sites in The Settlement in Craig Ranch to Our Country Homes, a third-generation, Tarrant County-based custom builder.

“We are one of the few developers in Collin County with well-located custom home lots on the ground and we have seen a strong interest in these lots this year,” said Miles Prestemon, COO of Craig Ranch. Our Country Homes is a third generation fully custom homebuilder, which has built primarily in Tarrant County but is making a major expansion into the booming Collin County market.

“Purchasing 21 home sites is a major commitment by a custom home builder and indicative of the financial strength and longevity of this family-owned, custom building company,” Prestemon added. “Our Country Homes is a great addition to our exceptional builder line-up in Craig Ranch.”

Our Country Homes has designed a new Platinum Series of luxury home designs to introduce in Craig Ranch. A model home and three additional home designs will begin construction in early January with home prices anticipated to start from the $500s. The 80-foot custom home sites include lots with views of the TPC Craig Ranch golf course.

“We are excited about the opportunity to make Craig Ranch one of our first communities in Collin County,“ said Dustin Austin, President of Our Country Homes. “We wanted to be in the most active luxury market in Dallas/Fort Worth area and clearly Collin County is the place to be. We chose Craig Ranch because of the community’s unmatched signature amenities, Frisco schools and exceptional location.

“Our company has a fully-staffed architectural design department to design homes for the discriminating Collin County buyer and we look forward to introducing new designs created just for Craig Ranch,” Austin added.

Our Country Homes is a third-generation custom builder who has built primarily in and around Fort Worth concentrating on North East Tarrant custom neighborhoods in Hurst, North Richland Hills and Keller.  The company has recently started building in The Hills of Kingwood in west Frisco and Provence in Garland.  They also offer their build-to-suit services for customers who own home sites in the DFW-Metro area.
