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:

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?

There are plenty of private spaces in this home, yet you get just enough of a glimpse from one room into another to feel connected.
