Just north of downtown McKinney


Painted Tree, located 30 miles north of Dallas and just west of I-75 near downtown McKinney, is composed of three distinct districts. Each is informed by the character of the land and linked by trails to unique destinations – through the woods, along the water, to parks, pools and places to gather. Each district offers a variety of new ways to live.

Amenities by nature


The only thing better than getting away is getting together. Painted Tree has plenty of ways to do both. Explore miles of greenways, pathways and nature trails, woven into 200 acres of natural open space and around a 20-acre fish-stocked lake. Then meet up with friends at any of three community hubs for revelry and relaxation at its finest. Where swimming pools and National-Park inspired spaces bring everyone together in the spirit of community.

New ways to live


Home has become even more meaningful – now as a workplace, a classroom and a refuge. Painted Tree responds to this new day with trusted local and national home builders, crafting a variety of next-generation single-family and townhomes for sale, and single-family homes for lease. Homes that come with flexible spaces that bring all your friends over to celebrate and quiet spaces that bring your family closer together.

And be sure to join the list for model home openings, community updates, event invitations, and more.
