When we asked the seller’s what they loved about St. Paul, they said, “Our family has lived in St. Paul for 38 years and we love it here. It has all the peace and quiet of country living and all the conveniences of shopping and dining just minutes away. The low population density and 1.5 acre minimum residential lot size contribute to the small town feel. A recent survey revealed 94% of the residents don’t want more commercial development and the city council is of the same mind. The streets in our neighborhood have low traffic volume and it’s common to see neighbors out on walks. Everyone is very friendly. The town does a good job of maintaining the roads and the Trinity Trail for horseback riding and hiking along the southwest shore of Lavon Lake runs through our town.”
When you enter this home, your are struck by the stunning wood flooring, the brick fireplace with built-in’s that accent the entire end of the expansive Great Room, and the bright and airy updated kitchen.
The beautifully renovated kitchen features white cabinets, granite counter tops, and a grey subway tile backsplash.
The spacious master bedroom has a tray ceiling and the master shower has been recently updated.
The other bedrooms have new carpet and paint and the hall bath has been completely renovated.
When it comes to finding a beautiful residential lot, it is hard to find a residential lot as gorgeous as this one. It has large trees with lots of shade, a peaceful pond, and lots of privacy.
This beautiful lot also has some added bonuses… THERE IS NO HOA!!!!!!!!!!!There are great views out of every window in the house and the back 1/3 of the property is in the county and is not regulated, zoned, or taxed by the town. This might be especially attractive to someone who desires to have a small home-based business.If you are a horse lover, horses are allowed and limited to 3 per acre.Many residents have a variety of accessory structures such as barns, shops, gazebos, swimming pools, and patio covers.
All St. Paul residents can get a free annual pass to Collin Park on Lavon Lake giving them free access to the boat ramps, picnic areas, and swimming beach.

When asked about convenient places to eat and shop for groceries, the seller said, “For Tex-Mex we love to eat at Jhonny’s in St. Paul, Frankies in Sachse, and Fuzzy’s in Wylie. For fish it’s Fish N’ Tails in Wylie. For BBQ it’s Bold BBQ Pit and Kickin’Q in Wylie. For Deli it’s McAllister’s in Wylie and Jason’s in Murphy.”
