Any reviews for these two communities. I am not interested in estate homes, just villas on smaller lots. One is East Plano and other Central.

Highland, Toll & Landon are trusted builders. Both communities are near highways and both feed to PISD. That's all that I can add.

I would personally feel better about the area surrounding W. Park. 75075 is a slightly more affluent zip code than 75074, and it also feeds to Plano Sr., which has higher average SAT scores than Plano East.

I think it's still an expensive neighborhood for the area, but there are a few other subdivisions in the general area of W. Park that have higher home values, and I think that area would be more likely to see renewal in the surrounding older neighborhoods before an East Plano location.

East Plano is trending heavily Hispanic in a lot of areas just East of 75 and to me, they look a lot more run-down. I think that due to the quality of the builders in Villas, your neighborhood itself will be fine, but I personally just wouldn't want to live around all that long-term.

Plano Sr High is a great school without a doubt but Plano East Plano Senior High performs miraculously high for its demographics, it is housing IB Academy & Health Sciences Academy now, that is likely to change the equilibrium.

If you are spending >$400k then I would rather stay in Plano West Sr High area that covers Jasper & Shepton and buy a nice existing house there. You'll have top schools and kids can bus to any of the three Academies if they want to go that route.

People who are uninformed think East Plano consists of the strip of land on either side of 75 and behind Fiesta grocery store. Wrong.

I live pretty close to the Villas of Pecan Creek, which is in FAR EAST Plano where there are numerous neighborhoods with values over $400k (Stoney Hollow, Hills of Spring Creek, Ranch Estates of Los Rios and Trails of Glenwood.)
If you'd like to avoid congested traffic, a view of the back of a strip-mall, noise, and lack of trees, then come check out Far East Plano.
We have the 250 acre Oak Point preserve (Plano Balloon Festival, Fireworks), Oak Point Rec Center, local mom& pop restaurants, walking trails, 5 minutes to all the new shopping in Murphy. I love it here.
Of course I'm an artsy gal from Austin and probably wouldn't "fit in" so well with the West Plano folks, anyway.

I consider myself an East Plano Ambassador. I know this is an older post, but I was just looking for some more info on Villas of Pecan creek and it brought me to this thread. I had to respond because there is just so much outdated info by people who have never even been over here.
