Town of Fairview Feels Like Country Right Near the City

Share News:

It’s almost an unfair advantage to photograph a home with this gorgeous a sunset overhead.

The Town of Fairview is an actual town, so don’t call this gorgeous 9-square-mile bedroom community a city, please. For this week’s Suburb Sunday, here are three homes for sale in Fairview at top-, middle-, and low-price points, but all are breathtaking in this town that’s marked by large homes on sprawling lots and numerous horse farms.

Fairview is located east of US 75/Central Expressway, just north of Allen. About 10,000 people call Fairview home, where they enjoy excellent Lovejoy ISD schools, and the Village at Fairview shopping area.

An interesting fact: There are no apartments or commercial developments in Fairview, plus the town enforces a “dark skies policy” that all new development complies with to protect their way of life and “keeping it country.”
