About Steve & Gretchen Sims
Steve & Gretchen Sims have lived in Fairview since 1996. Gretchen enjoys renovating and repurposing, and has a small business selling antiques in downtown McKinney. Gretchen hails from the great state of Iowa, but has lived in north Texas for over 30 years. Steve is from Louisiana, and enjoys cooking and eating Cajun food.
Why Steve & Gretchen Sims chose Fairview
This is a fun property. The home was built in 1918 on 55 acres by the Barksdale family, one of the original families in Fairview. Ada Barksdale married Chuck Williams in 1958, and they expanded and maintained the home until 2014 when Ada passed away. Chuck promised Ada he would not allow the house to be torn down when the farmstead sold. The home was moved from the farmstead (about 1/4 mile south) to the current location in 2015, and extensively renovated by Steve & Gretchen. It is one of the oldest homes in Fairview, but is completely modernized. It is perfect for your home away from home - upscale appointments, large rooms (10' ceilings), and fun facts for each room in the house.
What makes this House unique
The property is close to downtown McKinney, Allen, Fairview, Frisco, and Plano. Relax on the front porch swing, or sit in the screened porch and quietly read. Take a soothing bath in the clawfoot tub. Or cook a gourmet meal in the upscale kitchen. Set a romantic mood using the unique lights made specifically for the house using implements from the original farmstead. Enjoy large groups of friends and family around the grand island. Play board games on the back deck, or on the 1940's Thomasville dining room table. Plenty of room for family games on the acreage.

The description is accurate. This is a very nice home and the hosts have made sure that anything you could need is already there, be it bedding, appliances, basically anything. Plus, they were very responsive when an unexpected winkle occurred during our stay. It was resolved quickly and satisfactorily. I recommend this house highly.
Awesome house and hosts. We had 1 small glitch the last morning of our stay w garage bathroom. Would stay again absolutely!
Everything about this place is first class. Excellent choice.

Wedding Party - Groom's family and friends
This home is immaculate and spacious. It is just minutes from downtown McKinney and is convenient to the many wedding venues in and around the area. The owners are very responsive and excellent hosts. We comfortably slept 10 people. With 3 full bathrooms and a half bath, there was plenty of space for everyone to get ready for the festivities.
