Homes for sale in Farmersville, TX
Farmersville is situated 35 miles northeast of Dallas and although growing steadily as a part of the rapidly expanding Collin County, has still retained much of its rural flavor. Originally named for its resident's chief occupation, the city of Farmersville (with its near 3500 inhabitants) is just big enough and just close enough to Dallas to provide the perfect rural suburban lifestyle- a safe, quiet refuge from the hustle and bustle of the big city but just close enough to enjoy its fruits.
