My husband and I are having a touch time deciding on which subdivision to live in. I would love to hear your opinions on which one is better. Thank you in advance

Both neighborhoods are nice and very similar.I would choose the neighborhood according to which you personally like the feel of best.Whether you are buying pre owned or doing a new build,look at the actual floorplan and what you are getting for what you are paying.Since bothe neighborhoods are so similar,that should assist you in the decision.Witley Place has higher price points,other than that there are few differnces...

If it makes a diffrerence, Prosper's newest elementary school is located within Whitley Place. Not having to leave the development to get to school would be a big plus if I still had elementary aged kids. Also, Whitley Place is right next to a great church. I go there, so shameless plug....

Personally I like the topography of Whitley Place better, has a beautiful creek cutting through the middle of the development, more rolling and more mature trees. Lakes of Prosper is built mostly on flat land that would have been cornfields or pasture, few trees, makes the neighborhood less inviting.

But as a Georgia native, I consider anything in this area with large trees and a bit of elevation change to be prized. Might not matter to others.

I agree with you that trees, a creek, vegetation and hills make for a pretty area anywhere. I recently discovered Fairview and found it a gem due to these factors. I do not know the two subdivisions OP is asking about.

Fairview is definitely one of the most attractive areas in all of North Texas, agreed.

Is Heritage ranch in Fairview expensive and very desirable area? Some homes are built on smaller lots.

I am pretty sure that this is an active retirement community, so yes, lots are smaller than what you find in the rest of Fairview. Most of Fairview has a custom home/non-subdivisiony feel (if I can make up a word). Heritage and some of the development by the mall are the only real exceptions to this.

The area around the mall (Village of Fairview) is McKinney ISD. Fairview is split in half at Meandering Way. Most homes West of Meandering Way (not all homes because there is a split) are McKinney ISD. Most homes to the East of Meandering Way are Lovejoy ISD.

Heritage Ranch is purely a retirement community and students are not allowed to live there or use a grandparents address to attend Lovejoy.

Lucas doesn't have as many rolling hills but there are some nice treed lots in Lucas and Parker.
