Many people know Parker only as the famous home of Southfork Ranch, but there’s much more to this small town. Because there is no public sewer, homes require their own septic systems. For those to work properly in this type of soil, a minimum of one acre is required. That’s why Parker feels so spacious.
We’ve sold homes in Parker from $300k up to almost $2 million, so there’s a wide price point range. Even though one acre is the minimum lot size, many homes are on much larger tracts. There’s a nice blend of smaller ranchettes and very expensive estate homes.
Parker touches Plano, a city of about 85,000, so all the conveniences can be found there. It’s nice to feel like you live in the country, but you don’t have the long drives to a store. Parker is also just north of the Richardson Telecom Corridor and many executives live in the town.
Kids attend Plano Independent School District which has a great reputation. They can also pay in to attend Lovejoy ISD, which is just to the north in Lucas. Parker is close-in country with quick access to George Bush Tollway (SH 190) a major east/west artery and Central Expressway (SH 75), a major north/south artery leading to downtown Dallas.
