Living in


Aptly named Southlake lies just below Grapevine Lake in Dallas-Fort Worth’s suburban sprawl. This town of 32,000 is a splendid place to set down roots, thanks to an impressive number of parks, preserves, and golf clubs. Bob Jones Nature Center and Preserve is home to more than 20 miles of trails spread over 758 acres of lush woodland. Here, the Walnut Grove Trail meanders alongside the lake, allowing for marvelous views of the water. When residents are looking for a little action, they head to Main Street, the main drag in a busy commercial corridor with a shopping mall and dozens of popular retailers and chain restaurants.

Southlake’s real estate options include a huge array of opulent dwellings, from castle-like abodes to sleek, loft-style condos. Many homes boast high-end amenities and interiors clearly intended to impress.
