Centex Opens First New Home Community In Melissa

MELISSA, TEXAS, October 14, 2014 — Families seeking beautiful and functional home designs in a great location are invited to tour the new fully furnished model homes at Trails of Melissa by Centex. 

Trails of Melissa is the first Centex neighborhood in this northeast Collin County community, and features a variety of single level and two-level home designs, said Steven Langridge, vice president of sales for PulteGroup’s Dallas Division.


“These homes are designed for the way families truly live with features that include open layouts with more elbow room for gathering family and friends,” said Langridge.  “Many of the home designs feature flex spaces that can be used for a variety of options.  There’s more storage space and room to accommodate changing lifestyles.” 

Located just 35 miles north of downtown Dallas, and less than seven miles from McKinney, Trails of Melissa offers easy access to shopping, dining, entertainment and the city’s extensive trail system.  Close to Highways 121 and 380, the community also provides easy access to major job corridors.

“This location provides great access to major transportation arteries while offering a tremendous value relative to current home prices in the region,” Langridge said, adding that Trails of Melissa is located in the Melissa Independent School District.  The community opened for presales in June.  “For families seeking to relocate, we have inventory homes available for move-in by the end of the year.”

Starting in the $150s to $230s, the 84-home community offers seven home designs that range from 1,431 to 2,791 square feet.  The homes feature three and four bedrooms with plans that offer upgraded master baths, kitchen islands, cabinetry and crown molding.
