I’m a new resident. How do I get pool/Residents’ Club access and information about resident-only events?
Once a new resident has closed on their home, they need to contact our Property Management Team (CMA).
First step is to register/request a log-in on our resident-only website – www.tuckerhill.org .
Please allow for up to 24 hours for a new log-in to take effect. Registering for this website ensures that you will start receiving event e-blasts from our Lifestyle Coordinator and all HOA communications. It also starts the process for you to receive your access key to the pool and Residents’ Club.
To receive a website login and pool/Residents’ Club access key, CMA requires the following:
- Receipt of a re-sale certificate from the title company upon closing.
- Homeowner signature on the pool waiver form (found on the last page of the website’s Information Booklet or request it from CMA Customer Care)
Because it can take up to one week for any title company to forward a re-sale certificate, residents can expedite this process by contacting CMA (see below) and arranging to provide proof of closing. And, instead of waiting for their access key to be mailed, new residents may pick up their key at CMA’s Allen location (see below).
If you have any questions, please contact CMA in any of the ways listed below
- CMA also has a Customer Care Office that can be reached at 972.943.2828 or at email@example.com .
- For after-hours emergencies, please also call 972.943.2828.
- CMA’s offices are located at 1301 Central Expressway South, Suite 125, Allen, TX 75013.

Before buying a home in Tucker Hill, can I find out if the exterior changes I’m contemplating would even be permitted?

So, if you’re considering any Tucker Hill home and want to understand our community standards, we suggest reviewing our Governing Documents. If you’d like the advice of our Property Management Team, please either email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 972.943.2828.

Our historically reminiscent architecture primarily sets apart Tucker Hill from other communities. Secondly, a mixture of street designs that feature rear, front, detached or side-entry garages continues the uniqueness. Third, our community attracts both young families and retirees and plans resident-only activities to appeal to this wide variety of ages. And finally, with a strong horticulture focus, Tucker Hill boasts seasonal color throughout the year.
Tucker Hill is being developed as a “Traditional Neighborhood Development.” Although coined by the real estate development community, the term “Traditional Neighborhood Development” (or TND) is quite simple. This development philosophy became the norm in the country prior to World War II, and has since returned in growing markets around the United States. Today’s TND focuses on authentic, period architecture, especially what was once common to the area, and not mass-produced/streamlined building.
TNDs offer diverse housing styles that include features such as buildings that are closer to the street, front porches and window boxes. Narrower streets lined with a canopy of shade trees and a network of sidewalks beckon people to leave their cars parked and instead, take a stroll. Hike and bike trails traverse the community and open spaces, parks and a main public square serve as gathering points for residents. There’s a balance of public and private space, with green or natural space given a high priority in the neighborhood’s overall design.
See these websites for more information on the concept of TNDs and New Urbanism:
Tucker Hill’s architectural styles are actually a mix of styles and sizes within each block, as you might find a quaint Tudor next door to an elegant Victorian. Of course, we make sure that they complement each other and play nicely on the same street, ensuring that you don’t see the same house repeated throughout the community.
We also strive to incorporate front porches into each housing design, not only for that nostalgic appeal, but also to encourage interaction between neighbors.
The very fact that we have a horticulture standard is another reason we are set apart. People notice how different Tucker Hill’s new homes look from other master-planned communities. At first they think it’s all about the flowers. But it is an interwoven experience that is about more than meets the eye, including:
- A variety of hedges, maintained at a mature size, with no gaps between shrubs
- An interesting mix of retaining walls, in diverse materials
- Courtyard gardens; residents transform their side yards into gloriously private havens surrounded by an array of wall materials, from wood to pierced brick
- Unique landscaping materials used along sidewalks and around public buildings, such as wooden arbors or fences of pierced brick or wrought iron
- A mix of annuals and perennials throughout the neighborhood, so there is never a lack of color, even in winter
- Preservation of as many mature trees as possible
Our Horticulture Team maintains the beauty of Tucker Hill greenery found at our entrances, parks, and green spaces. And, as the seasons change, we bring in gardening experts that offer tips to residents and the general public through planned seminars.

Construction began in 2007, but slowed shortly thereafter due to the economic downturn. However, Tucker Hill continues to thrive as we are currently offering final opportunities in Phase 3. And, approximately 118 lots in Phase 4 are now selling. We estimate at least 3 to 4 more phases offered before Tucker Hill reaches build-out.

The inspiration to name “Tucker Hill” came from the man who originally secured the area’s 317 acres from Peters Colony. His name was Henry Tucker. The inclusion of the numbers “317” in our logo are a reminder of these original 317 acres.
