Now, we love Westlake, which has one of our favorite gated communities — Vaquero Club. It’s borderline perfection, with sprawling estates with incredible design and execution everywhere you look, plus a Tom Fazio-designed golf course.

But, in this list from Veranda, they rank Westlake as the most expensive suburb in Dallas. Yes, we do love you, Westlake, but there are three homes in Highland Park that are each being marketed for $12.5 million, plus three more that are on MLS for prices northward of $10 million. Though whether the Park Cities are technically a suburb is still debatable, but it’s definitely outside of the city limits of the largest metro in the vicinity, so you’d think it would qualify.

Regardless, we love Vaquero, especially that featured home (pictured) 1806 High Country Dr., an Engel & Volkers listing on the market for $4 million. But it’s not the priciest listing in Westlake, which happens to be a 35-acre equestrian property just outside of Vaquero at 1905 N. Pearson Lane, on MLS for $9.999 million.

See what Veranda had to say about Westlake after the jump!
