Shadow Lakes North, located between Main Street and Bethany Drive, is one of those tucked-away neighborhoods that is as close to perfection as possible. It consists of 226 single family homes that were built in the mid 1990's by builders, including Pulte, Goodman (K Hovnanian), Ray Morris and Diamond among others. The neighborhood combines wide streets, many cul de sac lots, a creek with running trails full of wildlife and close proximity to fishing, biking, retail and restaurants, many within walking distance.
My family and I moved to Shadow Lakes North in 1999 when the City of Allen was still in a stage of rapid growth and development. As the city grew and became more like the larger communities in Collin County, Shadow Lakes North maintained its close identity with family living and recreation. The majority of homeowners in Shadow Lakes North are either the original homeowners or have lived in the neighborhood for 10+ years. Pride of home ownership is quite evident, even with a voluntary HOA in place.
