Fairview

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.”

great school districts

This home at 3041 Trinity Lane in Keller is priced at $539,000, which makes it a bargain if you’re looking for a family home in Southlake-Carroll ISD, listed as one of Niche’s great school districts.

It’s not unusual — many of the great school districts in the Dallas/Fort Worth area are also in the priciest cities and neighborhoods.

So when the website Niche advertised that it could help folks find the best schools in your metro area, we decided to take a gander at their list, and then go on a mission to locate the cheapest abode a family could expect to find among their top five districts.

The results are as follows.
