... not impressed. Too expensive and too isolated. Plus, the views weren't even that great with all the power lines surrounding The Lakes Golf Course. I dunno.... maybe it was just me, but I didn't vibe with the place.

Lots were approx $335K-$350K for a 19K sq foot lot.... and there was LOTS of retaining walls to build because none of the lots were flat. The monthly HOA was approximately $450 not including the Castle Hills baseline HOA of $650/yr. Plus, you'd have to pay an additional $200/mo for the golf course club membership.

When we drove around, we felt isolated, no kids were around, there was only 1 couple walking dogs. Not only that, but the road was run-down and cracked.

Just my 2 cents. Anyone else seen this place?

Yes, just as you described. Why pay the price of a new home for a lot?

There are two new phases coming to CH - one this fall and another next summer. Better to wait if you want new in CH.

This is a bit late, but the areas in Castle Hills that you are looking to buy in would be $1,000,000 and up. The other phases he was referring to will be lower priced homes.

Personally as a resident of CHN, I think there are better places to buy if you are looking to buy just a lot for $300, 000 + .

Remember that taxes here are a bit higher and the homestead exemptions are lower, so in all, you will be spending a lot for the area.

Do you have a builder you have chosen ??
