The Possum Kingdom area of Mineral Wells (Graford) is indeed pretty and a small town but it is not one hour from DFW (do you mean the airport or just the metro area?) or McKinney except in the middle of the night with zero traffic. I live east of Mineral Wells (at least 30 min closer to DFW)and with no traffic it is nearly 1.5 hours to DFW- and I would assume 30 min more or so to McKinney.

It's been a while since I've driven through Jacksboro but it might be a stretch to call it "nice." It is undoubtedly a stretch to call the town of Mineral Wells "nice." I know OP doesn't want to live in town but surroundings can be important. Unfortunately that area is being ravaged by meth. I wouldn't want to be anywhere near Springtown, parts of Azle, Boyd- anyone buying small acreage plots in these areas should really research what is around them. Graford is a nice little pocket because of PK and there has always been money right around there- but I would still proceed with caution.

Definitely not trying to be discouraging or Deb Downer! Just lots to consider in that area which is sad because there are some pretty areas.

Agree I wouldn't recommend Jacksboro which is flat and pretty rural w/o redeeming vistas--

I don't know much about Flower Mound area--there could be something around Lake Lewisville--but that is like the busiest lake in Tx
Grapevine doesn't really have anything built around the lake since it is corp of engineers lake

There are some pretty views of just scenery west of FTW where the elevation starts--and some newer subdivisions--but don't think it fits "master planned"
