We pretty much made that choice. There are more builders in the older phases and thus, more variety in the homes. You don't really know if someone else has your plan because the houses don't tend to look the same. The elementary school is better in the older phases and you have access to more amenities. We looked at CHN and my husband fell in love with one floor plan but we ultimately purchased in the older part of the neighborhood and I'm glad we did, even though we will need to do some updating.

The original CH is totally different then the north development. They should have given it a different name since it's really an entirely separate area and designed to be a much less expensive community.

You're right on about the original, the new section looks like something you'd see in McKinney for under $250k. (Heights of Westridge)

Yeah, I personally wish they wouldn't have named it Castle Hills... Cheap Hills would have been more fitting. It's basically a cheap knockoff version of the REAL CH's. The front garages help junk up the neighborhood with the trashcans out front and TONS of cars parked out on the streets everywhere.

Also, there is simply not enough diversity there. I've seen the effects of a majority Asian/South Asian neighborhood and it isn't pretty. I don't care what anyone here says either, I've seen it first hand.

I wish the RE agents here could give their opinions since they show homes all the time and see tons of neighborhoods. I understand they have to be neutral/PC. I will say that I know RE agents outside of the ones here and they all share my same views.

This has been a great discussion. Thanks to everyone for their insight. I think we'll aim for one of the older phases of CH. Based on all the input we've received, we've ruled out CHN and probably Moore Farm. I suppose, like any area, there are pros AND cons associated with older CH, but all in all, it seems like a great place to raise a family. Houses may generally be higher priced, but I think we'll still be able to find something in the low 300s. For that price point, and as a young family, I just don't think there's another area (that's still relatively close to downtown Dallas) that can beat it.

Ah I see the CH hate on CH norht is still alive and kicking. I too would have loved to have CH north named something else so I would not be lumped with asenines like the trolls on here....to say that CH is diverse is as stoopid as saying as white dude watching Chris Rock and getting a black joke..LOL heck...even a KKK Grand Dragon likes a good fajita taco once in a while...power lines, train, humming sound...weve covered this already ad nauseum...alll you gotta do is do a search of Castle Hills on City Data and you will find the discussion threads that we have covered this already. On my street I have a korean neighbor, a chinese one, several anglo families, indians and latins...they dont like that in the original CH they want a 98 majority white homeowners with a family of color (preferably with light skin kids) every 5 to 6 streets only please... Not all of us have penis envy need the 5000K foot home and the 4 car garage and a gigantic 4X4 F350 to show we gotta chedda we can be just fine without being gluttunos..as far as the school again just do a search on CH and you can find discussion on the school as well...

It is darktown.

Lots of people of Asian-origin Moderator cut: see comment living in McMansions or God Forbid what on earth they've knocked down and built.

That sounds kind of harsh but as I am Gujurati I am going to play the unimpeachable moral authority card.

That is a good point. That is why plenty of us who live in the main part of CH's, have homes 3k square feet and UNDER and paid very close to the same amount the residents in CH's north paid. Also, I have NEVER seen anyone in this neighborhood with a 4x4 F350 except the maintenance workers. I'm not sure why that is a vehicle you think the "rich" people drive?


People are going to buy what they want to. The OP asked if it was true that CHN is majority South Asian(Indian) and the answer is YES. The OP doesn't want to live in a neighborhood that is a majority of a race besides his/her own and wants more diversity. I don't see a problem with that. Big deal.. get over it.

My guess is the same thing will happen to CHN in time as well. Right now it's still brand new.

What this means is that Independence will be the top Elementary in 8 years.
