We were just in town this weekend looking at areas. What is everyone's thoughts on Flower Mound (Wellington subdivisions)? Anyone who has lived or lives there?

Schools? Neighborhoods? Location? Etc.

We have a 3 year old girl with another girl on the way, so education and friendly kid neighborhoods are quite important to us.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

I am not familar with the subdivision that you inquired about but I can tell you that Flowermound is a very desirable area to live. I would make sure you are in Lewisville schools, I have heard that Denton's aren't as good as Lewisville ISD. We had talked to a realtor some time ago who lives there and he loves it. He has 5 kids in the school system there and he said that they are blue ribbon there. I wish you all the best.

I've only heard good things about Flower Mound. Too far of a commute for me into Richardson, so I never explored the area too deeply, but again, about the only negative thing I've heard is regarding the air traffic from DFW.

I have a co worker that lives in Flower mound and he loves it. I have been there on numerous occasions for work, even looking at some of the houses in Wellington. That, along with Lantana and Highland Village, are on our short list for relocation when the time is right.

The problem with Wellington is the houses are so close together. Driving through the neighborhood I felt closed in and at points all you can see is roofs all lined up. We chose to go with an older neighborhood so the yards were a bit bigger and the trees more mature.

One caution about Flower Mound...the people we met tended to be not-so-friendly. In fact, our nickname for the city became Snootyville before we moved this past fall. People are too busy leading their lives to talk to their neighbors or even say hello. The same was true everywhere in town. If you are an outgoing person you may do better than we did. We lived there a year and never even got a hello out of most of the neighbors! There were exceptions to the rule, the people who were new to Flower Mound themselves!

Besides that, we absolutely loved Flower Mound! Great schools (again, not the friendliest teachers, principal, etc.)! Wonderful playgrounds! Super shopping! Just a really pretty town!!!

I have found this with the whole metroplex (not so much Fort Worth-Crowley-Burleson).
