Yes, there are other developments, but not in Texas. Tucker Hill has a sister – Westhaven, located in Franklin, Tennessee. As one of the largest traditional neighborhood developments (TND) in the Southeast, this SLC community is located several miles west of historic downtown Franklin. Visit Westhaven online at www.westhaventn.com.
Currently, there are no other SLC developments like Tucker Hill in the DFW Metroplex.

Unlike several surrounding communities, Tucker Hill is not located within any Municipal Utility District (MUD), Public Utility District (PUD), Special Utility District (SUD), or Public Improvement District (PID).
Once you’ve decided to move into Tucker Hill, it’s time to figure out who to call to set up all those utility services like electricity, gas, cable, telephone, etc. We suggest starting with this page on the City of McKinney’s website that can help new residents navigate through all these details.
A new traffic light has been installed at our main entrance at Hwy. 380 & Tremont and a new de-acceleration lane is now also available to allow for traffic to slow before turning into our main entrance.
Our master builder partners incorporate high-end telecommunications packages into their standard features. This is coupled with access to a resident-only website maintained by our property management team. Fiber-optic home technology and intranet creates seamless communication with the world at large, and with the neighborhood community.
Besides our historically reminiscent architecture which sets apart Tucker Hill, there is also a mixture of street designs that feature rear, front, detached or side-entry garages. 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 and floriculture focus, Tucker Hill is full of seasonal color throughout the year.
In addition, 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 was embraced as the norm in the country prior to World War II, and has since made a resurgence 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.
These developments offer diverse housing styles and prices that include features such as buildings that are closer to the street, front porches and window boxes. Narrower streets are lined with a canopy of shade trees and boast a network of sidewalks that 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 is devoted entirely to maintaining 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. Approximately 118 lots in Phase 4 will be released in September of 2017. It is estimated that there will be at least 3 to 4 more phases offered before Tucker Hill is completed.
The name “Tucker Hill” was inspired by the name of the man who originally secured the area’s 317 acres from Peters Colony — Henry Tucker. The inclusion of the numbers “317” in our logo are a reminder of these original 317 acres.
