"Perfect City, USA." That's how D Magazine describes Southlake, and residents couldn't agree more. Nearing build-out, the rush is on for some of the last land available in this upper crust enclave. Home buyers appreciate the availability of large lots, well plannned neighborhoods, unsurpassed shopping and arguably the best schools in the Metroplex.

What's not to envy? What used to be a rural area until the 1970's completion of the D/FW International Airport has grown into the almost built out city of Southlake. Yes, there is little land left to build out, and the last remaining lots are mostly under construction now. Southlake was in the right place at the right time, and led by a brilliant City Council that had the foresight to create a zoning plan in the early days of the building boom that set the tone for the impending development. Developers were eager to take part in the building frenzy, and added amenities the city encouraged and buyers craved like community pools, tennis courts, greenbelts and ponds.
Southlake Named Among Most Affluent
Rising land costs during the building boom meant more expensive homes being built. City services grew with the population and now Southlake offers residents more than 900 acres of parks, 45 practice and game fields, 15 lighted tennis courts, plus ponds, pavilions, trails, and even an inline hockey park. The median price of Southlake homes now hovers around $700,000, and Forbes proclaimed Southlake the most affluent city in the nation for a town of its size in 2008.
Considering homes for sale in the Southlake area?
This free eGuide will answer many of your home buying questions and likely bring up a few things you didn't even know you should consider.
Unlike Southlake's neighbor cities of Keller and Grapevine, there was no original, charming "old time" downtown area. But in 1996, the firm of Cooper and Stebbins came to the city with the concept for Town Square, the unique live, work, shop city center now known throughout the area for its upscale shops and fine dining. Located between Southlake Blvd. and the extended Highway 114, Phase One of Town Square was completed in 1999 and almost immediately studied by other cities and developers as a model of smart design. Two additional phases of Town Square were opened in 2006. Town Square has indeed become the focal point hub of the city, hosting some of Southlakes most popular events including Home for the Holidays, Oktoberfest, (be sure and see the wiener dog races!) and Art in The Square.
