I currently live in Carrollton, and until recently my wife and I were planning on moving back to Connecticut. Career situation has changed, however, and it looks like we'll be here for the next several years. We are expecting our first child and would like to find a nice community with good schools in Plano...

We saw a house in Ridgeview Ranch built in 2000 that we absolutely loved, but were beat to the punch on an offer. We would prefer a community like that, with a pool, playground etc. We want to spend between 275k-350k. The more west plano, the better (definitely west of custer).

Does anybody have any suggestions for communities I can look into?

You might be able to find something in your range in Castle Hills (just north of Carrollton) if you're not set on Plano.

I am not sure if you are aware but Ridgeview is in the city of Plano but in Frisco ISD. Also an excellent school district IMO.

There are 43 homes for sale in Ridgeview priced between 200k-340K. Did you look at all of them?

A couple of other neighborhoods with community amenities are:

Russell Park (McDermott and Independence)
Knolls @ Russell Creek (Custer and McDermott)
Highland Ridge (Coit & Hedgecox)
Stonewood Glen (Coit & Parker) built in the 90s
Spring Ridge (Independence & Hedgecox

Aren't most Plano houses from 2000 or later going to be either in Frisco ISD, ... or Far East Plano ... ?
