We are considering building a home @ Richwood, and have pretty much narrow down to either Landon or TollBrothers. Can you share your experience about Landon? Other recommendations on builders? Neighboorhoods in the Frisco/mcKinney 121 area? And what your thoughts are about the Richwood community?

Your inputs are appreciated.

Phillips Creek Ranch off stone brook and Teel offers many more builders (and has homes up to $1mm) and larger lots. Richwoods is nice, but do yourself a favor and go look around on a Saturday about who your neighbors will be -- very clickish and unless you fit in you risk being an outsider (culturally).

Don't get me wrong - Richwoods is nice - just ended up not being for us.

Of the two I would go with Toll and would also suggest u look at K Hovanian in that neighborhood - they have some great floor plans.

OP, I'm in the same situation as you. Richwoods with Toll vs. John R Landon.

Phillips creek does have awesome builders (huntington and belclaire) but was WAY too inland for my wife and I. About 7-8 minutes down lebanon from the tollway, so we ruled it out.

Can't speak to the clickish'ness of Richwoods as i don't know enough about it. Can you elaborate on what made you feel that way? I'd like to know given my preference for Richwoods over PCR

Richwoods is a great concept with a great location.I do think the prices are steep for the lot sizes they offer. Apparently they are able to get people buying,because Prices have increased a bit in the past few months.I can see some people wanting the amenities and location,therefore justifying the price....

I would do Phillips Creek Ranch on a bigger lot over Richwoods.We have driven thru what is up so far in Richwoods just once out of curiosity.Coming from Prosper with houses in the same price range but on large lots overall,we did not like how tight it felt.

What's funny is PCR is actually smaller and pricier. PCR lots at the largest (on average) for huntington and belclaire are only 83' wide and they starts at 600's and 550's respectively. Richwoods landing and country are 84' and 90' and they start at the 500's. So i don't get the "bigger lots" argument at PCR.

Aren't those decent sized lots? I mean that's a good area to mow. You can probably have a small pool in tr back too.

Absolutely. it was just in response to CREW who wanted PCR cause of it's larger lots. Just saying PCR lots are smaller.

Find me an available Richwoods lot at that size and let's talk. Ask any builder there and it's $600k + for a house/lot in that range.
