Finding a true sense of community can be a challenge as people look for a place to live. Castle Hills is the answer, a 2,800-acre master-planned, gated community located in Lewisville. Not only is it neighborly, it offers proximity to freeways and airports, making it a snap to get around DFW.
The first residents moved into Castle Hills in 1998 and the area has grown and evolved into a live-work-play community. The development offers 25 parks and green spaces, several lakes, and trees planted every 30 feet. Expansive views and signs of nature are all around and quaint bridges and street lamps gracefully guide the way home. Hike-and-bike trails wind throughout Castle Hills offering many outdoor recreational opportunities for residents. Catch-and-release fishing is allowed at the 12-acre park and lake area. What’s not to love?
Home prices range from the high $300s to over $3 million. If you’re navigating the real estate market in Castle Hills, you want the true experts at Ebby Halliday Realtors. I’ve found three of the houses Ebby is representing there that are impressive. Let’s take a look.
