Enchanted Hill, located within the master-planned community of Castle Hills in Lewisville, is a guard-gated enclave of estate homes with a 24-hour attendant surrounded by the lush fairways of The Lakes at Castle Hills private country club and golf course. Custom home sites in Enchanted Hill are available from the $300s with custom homes from $1.75 million and up. Living in Castle Hills offers many amenities but Enchanted Hill in particular is the cream of the crop in gated community living. Here are five fantastic reasons to live in Enchanted Hill:
1. It’s REALLY centrally located.
Metroplex residents spend 9.4 days in traffic a year, which sounds doubtful until you realize that averages out to 27 minutes one way daily. Sounds about right, doesn’t it?
One big advantage of living in Enchanted Hill (shaded purple in the map) is its central location within the Metroplex, well-situated at the crossroads of State Highway 121, Sam Rayburn Tollway, and FM 423, which becomes Park Blvd. in Plano.
That means you can get just about anywhere in half an hour. For example:
20 minutes drive to D/FW International Airport
30 minutes to Dallas Love Field
15 minutes to Stonebriar Centre in Frisco
15 minutes to The Shops at Legacy
30 minutes to the Winspear Opera House in the Arts District
45 minutes to AT&T Stadium (Sorry, that’s always going to be a haul no matter where you live).
2. The schools here are top notch.
When you have a family, purchasing your next home isn’t as simple as finding the perfect house. The neighborhood schools play a big part in your decision-making because purchasing your dream home in a low-performing school district might mean shelling out for private school tuition as well.
Castle Hills residents have plenty of options for schools. Castle Hills’ developers put a lot of thought into providing its residents top-notch schools, so they established a million-dollar schools foundation for “Exemplary”-rated Castle Hills Elementary School, which offers Kindergarten through 5th Grade, and other Lewisville ISD schools with Castle Hills students in attendance. Parents can also choose one of several nearby private schools including top-rated Prestonwood Christian Academy. The foundation provides opportunities for college tuition reimbursements for children of Castle Hills single-family homeowners.
3. Top builders chose to build here.
The great thing about building and living at Enchanted Hill is having access to an elite group of custom home builders, selected on their reputations for quality and commitment to surpassing home buyer expectations. Enchanted Hill has the following list of recommended builders however, buyers are welcome to bring their own builder for architectural review.
- Shelly Malone Custom Homes
- Rosewood Custom Homes
- Hawkins-Welwood Homes
- Ventura Custom Homes
- Ron Davis Custom Homes
- Custom Homes of Texas
- Bella Custom Homes
- Faulkner Perrin Custom Home
- Tim Jackson Custom Homes

A BIG advantage of working with the best builders is the variety you’ll see in these homes. Home styles within Enchanted Hill vary from Mediterranean, Spanish hacienda, Italian country, and English Tudor to French Country/French Norman inspirations. The custom home builders behind these luxury homes understand the unique challenges of creating your vision of home. From concept to creation, these builders will work with you to create your dream home while staying true to the developer’s vision for Enchanted Hill — to create a neighborhood that soars above all others.
4. Build a home, get a golf membership to the club.
The average golf membership at Metroplex-area country clubs can run six figures, and that’s not including pricey initiation fees to be admitted. But all homeowners in Enchanted Hill receive a full golf course membership to the Jay Morrish-designed The Lakes at Castle Hills and dues paid for a year.
The Lakes at Castle Hills is a private, full-service country club featuring an 18-hole championship course located in the heart of the community. Open to members and their invited guests, The Lakes at Castle Hills offers an aquatic center with resort-style swimming pool, a tennis center, a wide range of event & tournament packages, casual & formal dining, and full-service golf and tennis shops. The Club House offers summer day camps for kids, tennis leagues for adults, and a nearby organic community garden for residents, too.
Castle Hills offers 25 parks and green spaces, several lakes, and trees planted every 30 feet. Catch-and-release fishing is allowed at the 12-acre park and lake area. Hike-and-bike trails wind throughout Castle Hills offering many outdoor recreational opportunities for residents.
5. Entertainment, restaurants, and even office space are all here.
Since welcoming its first residents in 1998, the 2,900-acre community of Castle Hills has grown and evolved into a live-work-play community with the Village Shops, a town square-like mix of retail, restaurants, and offices, and more planned for the future.
A 324-acre acre, mixed-use development in Lewisville broke ground in June 2019. The development, The Realm at Castle Hills, a Bright Realty development, will be a new urban center for the Castle Hills community located on State Highway 121 west of Josey Lane. It will include offices, retail, restaurants, and multi-family developments.
