Is Low-Maintenance Living Right for You?


Whether you are a busy young professional searching for a no-hassle home or an empty nester looking to downsize, low-maintenance living is becoming an increasingly popular option for homebuyers in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Normandy Homes is proud to build low-maintenance homes in two popular DFW communities: Viridian in North Arlington and Spicewood at Craig Ranch in McKinney.

To help you decide if low-maintenance living should be a priority in your DFW home search, Normandy Homes has rounded up some perks for you to consider.

Easier Living

If you dread doing yard work or maintaining a pool you hardly use, you’ll love the low-maintenance lifestyle in these two communities.  Zero-lot line properties mean less yard to mow and more time to spend doing the things you love! Low-maintenance living communities also offer newer features and better quality, and living closer to urban areas is also an advantage, as you will be living in the hottest parts of town within walking distance of parks, restaurants, shops and even work.


Normandy Homes’ low-maintenance homes are located in master-planned communities offering amazing amenities. Situated along the west fork of the Trinity River, Viridian features an amenity center, pool, fitness center, sailing club, sports courts and much more. In the beloved Craig Ranch community, Spicewood residents have access to the TPC Craig Ranch Golf Course, the Craig Ranch Fitness Center and Spa, and planned shopping and dining that will connect to the Employment and Medical Districts.


You won’t have to worry about confronting a neighbor who painted their house lime green or left trash out in their yard. The community HOA upholds regulations to help preserve the value of the land. Homeowners can also contact their HOA to report any problems or issues that may arise.


Normandy Homes’ elegant patio homes in Viridian and Spicewood at Craig Ranch are generally priced lower than many new single-family homes in these popular communities. While you’ll also be paying HOA fees, these fees will pay for maintenance of your home and amazing community amenities only found in master-planned communities like Viridian and Spicewood.
