Living in Southlake; An Award Winning City

Real Estate Agent with DFWMoves.com 0401593

Let's start by addressing the unique characteristics of Southlake—a small town with a single high school, fostering a sense of camaraderie through the shared Dragon mascot. The Carroll School District covers just 21 square miles and educates around 8400 students. That's small by Texas standards.

Yet the school district consistently proves its significance statewide and nationally. The district's success is attributed, in part, to the pervasive "Protect the Tradition" mantra instilled at every grade level, emphasizing legacy and a commitment to excellence.

Southlake's ambiance is characterized by a mix of rural and occasionally country elements, predominantly well-manicured and upscale. Despite its refined atmosphere, the city remains approachable, avoiding an overly highbrow image. The community is consistently family-focused and welcoming to kids.

Southlake's Town Square stands out as a meticulously planned city center that offers a combination of living and working options in addition to shopping. It's become a central destination for residents and visitors alike.

Notable events in Southlake include Oktoberfest, Home for the Holiday, Art in the Square, Stars & Stripes Celebration, and the MasterWorks Music Series. These gatherings contribute to the city's vibrant community spirit. It's not unusual for these events to bring in crowds of 100,000 to this small town of just 31,000.

Renowned for its award-winning parks and green spaces, Southlake provides residents with beautiful scenery and ample opportunities for exercise and enjoyment. The city's commitment to maintaining outstanding facilities exceeds the expectations of park visitors.

Strategically located off Highway 114 with easy access to Highway 121, Southlake's connectivity is a key factor for higher-end homebuyers. The city's proximity to DFW Airport and convenient freeway access facilitate travel throughout the Metroplex.

Southlake's strategic location contributes to a strong employment outlook, with quick commutes to major business hubs like Las Colinas, North Dallas, and the Frisco Legacy areas. The presence of major corporations along the Highway 114 Alliance area solidifies the city's appeal to relocating homebuyers.

Southlake's neighborhood options cater to various preferences, including luxury senior living, homes on acreage, gated neighborhoods, single-story homes, and communities with pools. Prospective residents can explore a range of choices, from established neighborhoods to new construction homes.
