Oak Point, positioned on a scenic Lewisville Lake peninsula, is known for its amazing hidden gems of neighborhoods that are so nestled in the trees, you’ll feel positively secluded. The most appropriately named one is the popular Emerald Sound neighborhood, a deed-restricted development of large single-family homes nestled on the east bank of Lake Lewisville. Each homestead is an irregular one-plus acre estate consisting of Black Prarie soil and post oak timbers. But there’s another big draw for Oak Point — its impressive polo clubs including the Willow Bend Polo Club and Prestonwood Polo Club, which will build 22 exclusive two and half-acre lots for custom-built homes overlooking the polo fields. Oak Point is clearly a special place to live and here are three great homes to choose from. Which is your favorite?

Sometimes you don’t want proximity. Sometimes you want to go home to a place at the end of the day that envelopes you in nature, with a lake nearby for paddle boarding, sailing or jet skis. Sometimes your way of unwinding when you get home (or off the road) is to go drop a line and fish. Such is what most buyers want and find when they get to Emerald Sound on Lake Lewisville.

Emerald Sound is a deed-restricted development of large single-family homes nestled on the East bank of Lake Lewisville in Oak Point, Texas. Each homestead is an irregular one-plus acre estate consisting of Black Prarie soil and post oak timbers. Homeowners enjoy keeping a horse or two, maybe even a mule, and preserve the migrating waterfowl, animal life and abundance of fishing that drew indigenous people to the area for more than 300 years, before it became part of the Peters Colony, the first Texas land grant open to settlers.

And if you haven’t seen the sun set behind Denton and across the lake, well, you need to. It is the closest I have come to feeling like I’m on the shore in the heart of Texas.
