Best Neighborhoods: Flower Mound area near Grapevine Lake matures into top place to live
DallasNews.com has a great write up on Flower Mound.
A Wisconsin native, Todd Schreiber relocated to Flower Mound and bought a house near Grapevine Lake in 1993. It was newly built, he said — so new that not all the neighborhood’s roads had been finished.
What appealed to him was what was already there — the travel convenience of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and the Wisconsin-like surroundings of the lake.
“As someone who hadn’t lived here before, and there really weren’t a whole lot of homes in the neighborhood yet, it really was about the location,” Schreiber said. “Over 20 years, the neighborhood has matured beautifully.”
In that time, more residents have moved into the neighborhood, whether transplants, retirees or young families. And now, after that quick-yet-stable maturation, the neighborhood and the surrounding area came out on top of a data study by The Dallas Morning News of the best neighborhoods in southern Denton County.
The area ranked No. 1 covers a wide swath of southern Flower Mound. Grapevine Lake makes up its southern and western boundary, with other borders including Wichita Trail, McKamy Creek Road and Farm-to-Market 2499.
Schreiber lives in Woodlake Estates, in the eastern end of the area.
The News’ analysis includes many factors, such as safety, schools and proximity to certain amenities like parks and major transportation — all of which residents cited about this Flower Mound neighborhood.
The airport and the lake were big draws for Rosa Bailey, too, when she bought her house in Woodlake Estates in 1998. She moved from Northern California and needed to travel for work but also wanted to live in woodsy surroundings. She’s now the president of the homeowners association for the neighborhood’s first phase.
Those two factors have helped attract other transplants to the neighborhood, Bailey said.Click here to read the rest of the article
