Are You Living in One of the Region’s Best Neighborhoods?

This home at 1205 N. Peytonville Avenue in Southlake has an open floor plan plus an upstairs game room. It is in the Carroll ISD – a great school district is one of the reasons that makes Southlake the best neighborhood in the Metroplex, according to the Dallas Morning News.

After weeks reporting on bits and pieces of its in-depth analysis of neighborhoods in the Metroplex, the Dallas Morning News has released its list of the 10 Best Neighborhoods in the region.

Some will come as no surprise; others, you might want to explore a little bit more.

The newspaper considered 11 factors in determining the best neighborhoods: schools, parks, landscaping, safety, commute, noise, appreciation, pets, activities, affordability and walkability.

Here’s the Top 10 list:

1. Southlake – It isn’t one thing that sets this wealthy northeast Tarrant suburb apart for the very rich: It’s almost everything. Southlake was better than average on 9 of our 11 measures.

2. Eastern Colleyville – People who live in Colleyville south and east of State Highway 26 don’t seem to stray far. They tend to work nearby and have everything from Wal-Mart to a farmers market in their backyard.

3. Frisco (east of Preston) – The schools in Frisco were best in the region, and this area has some of the best in Frisco. It’s pricey but offers homes within reach of most families with higher-than-median incomes.

4. University Park – It’s larger than neighboring Highland Park but no less elite. Both have everything from bungalows to mega-mansions, and the data says this is objectively the nicer of the two.

5. Prestonwood – Strong Richardson ISD schools pushed this grouping of Far North Dallas communities near Addison ahead of similarly attractive in-city neighborhoods with good commutes.

6. Frisco (north of Eldorado) – As Frisco keeps growing, it’s continuing to support high-quality services and schools. This growing area at the city’s northern margin is known for safe streets and top-flight schools.

7. Nesbitt Park area (McKinney) – South of Eldorado Parkway in western McKinney, this area offers residents good schools and low crime alongside skateboard ramps, tennis courts, and baseball and softball diamonds.

8. Denton/Lake Ray Roberts – Head northeast from downtown Denton until you hit the water. While you can find plenty of McMansions, this area also offers homes the median family can afford.

9. Sunnyvale – The citizens of Sunnyvale earned their insular reputation with a long, and unsuccessful, legal fight against affordable housing. In the meantime, property values have been going up and up.

10. Flower Mound (Grapevine Lake to Flower Mound Road) – Southern Denton County’s champ is the area near Grapevine Lake. It boasts some of Lewisville ISD’s best schools along with parks and green spaces that are hard to beat.
