FORNEY, Texas — Plano-based home builder Shaddock Homes has announced the purchase of a section of Devonshire to develop 155 home sites.

According to Shaddock Homes, the section was purchased in a private area but within walking distance to The Club at Devonshire and will incorporate multiple parks and greenbelts throughout its phase, in addition to the master-planned amenities that currently exist.

"We were thrilled to learn of an opportunity to buy and develop land within Devonshire. It’s a perfect fit for our style of homes and approach to building in locations that are ideal for homebuyers," says Shaddock Homes Co-owner and Vice President Peter Shaddock, the second generation of Shaddocks to run the Plano-based residential homebuilding business.

"We want to maintain the natural beauty of the area and provide outdoor spaces to relax and recharge,” says Shaddock, who describes Devonshire as “the gold-standard for master-planned communities east of Downtown Dallas."

Shaddock adds that Forney’s consistent growth, in both volume and quality of the housing market over the last decade, appealed to the Shaddock family. Coupled with the opportunity to develop and build in the best master-planned community, the 40 acres available in Devonshire presented an exciting and logical addition to the company’s award-winning portfolio of homes and communities.

The Shaddock family also recognized the value of building homes in Forney, where families could benefit from the highly acclaimed Forney ISD schools, including the new Griffin Elementary School that recently opened on-site at Devonshire. In addition, the area will see the emergence of upcoming shopping districts in this thriving DFW suburb.

"Shaddock Homes has been creating communities of new homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex for 55 years," read a statement from the company. "The family-owned building business continues its commitment to residential development with plans for developing an enclave within the master-planned community of Devonshire."

The single-family home sites will be developed on 50- and 60-foot lots. New homes in the Shaddock Homes’ enclave at Devonshire are priced from the $400,000s.
