Not asking you, taro. That's what the home brochure says.
I guess it is all relative. I grew up on a half acre lot. Then I lived in Baltimore 10 yrs before I moved here. Our current home has roughly the same size. I know the house footprint plus our fenced area in about 7500. We sit on a corner so the front and side to the road is unfenced. We are always told we have a large lot via lawn service...fence (178 linear ft) etc

So I say yes 8k is large for a subdivision in the area the OP is looking.

Clearly I am not a Texan. What do Texans consider large?

Couple of things to note:
1) That parcel of undeveloped land isnt that big to begin with, so I imagine the lots will be quite small and probably will not give you much backyard space.
2) Double check the zoning of middle/high schools for that area. I think it might be different compared to homes just on the other side of Preston.
We have the same developpment in our neighborhood and those houses are actually patio home with no backyard and those are above the $400,000 price the OP is looking for.

What about 75010 and 75007? These are N. Carrollton zips and there are some lovely homes in that area. Plano is easy to get to down Hebron Pkwy and Carrollton has easy access to Bush, 121, and 35. We sold our home there in February. There's not a ton of shopping or restaurants but our son went to Hebron High School which was great, in every aspect. The feeder schools, I'm not familiar with as we moved to that area when he started high school but it's Lewisville ISD. Good luck, I could not deal with trying to buy up there right now. Selling was a breeze, though!

It's a very nice area but for whatever reason prices are never as high as 75093. This home is priced right.

Of course, that depends on where the lot is.

Even within Collin County, lot values vary significantly. Go check Collin County CAD value for land in different zip codes and you'll be amazed.

Why not expand your search right next door to Allen and Frisco??? Seems as you're hung up on the status/schools. To be honest they're all basically the same.

Don't judge a house by pictures on the internet. If you go inside you'll see the reason why.

I believe it's called park central on Preston. Megatel is the builder. I think they are built with one common wall and one side yard. It's the continuation of a development accessed off Ohio just south of Tulane I believe it is. They are just starting construction and claim they are pre selling. The land development is complete with lots ready for construction.
