Hi! Does anyone know anything about Emerald Park in Colleyville? I'm interested in the Emerald Park subdivision in general, the HOA, as well as what is happening with the land for sale (retail?) on Precinct line that the houses in Emerald Park back up to. Thanks!

Very nice neighborhood. It is in the KISD school district.
Liberty Elem, South Keller Int, Indian Springs MS and Keller HS.

Little crime and littel traffic

tract neighborhood even if homes are nicely finished out and over 3000 sq ft
small lots--
note that some of the garages are front facing--that is really considered "down-scale" in Colleyville--townhouses or zero-lot homes maybe have that feature but not usually SFR--just sign that lots were small
some of the homes have J-drives and I would bet those are likely smaller sq ft because they lose front space for the set back--

one reason some homes have pools even with such small lots is that the developer offered a free pool to anyone who bought a house when they were trying to close the subdivison
if you noticed--the homes on the inside of the development can only have metal fencing--that allows you to see through into people's yards -- because they back onto the pond in the middle of the neighborhood
the homes around the exterior of the neighborhood have wood privacy fences

there is a horse boarding set-up across the road from Emerald Park and a smaller development east on Lockett with larger lots and homes--I have not been down that way in long time and don't know who that developer is but you can check tad.org for info

the large construction across Lockett behind the Reata neighborhood that looks like a squashed water tower is a radar installation for DFW

Emerald Park was not quick to sell out--economy was one reason and also because most people buying in Colleyville want GCISD schools
even if the Keller schools are good

I am not sure of Lockett is due to be widened any time soon--I would check with Colleyville planning--Precinct Line in that area is very busy and initially there was no light at that street--trying to turn across traffic going south on Precinct into Lockett was a feat--as well as pulling out and going south--
I don't think there is a light there even now--so that would be concern for me depending on my traffic pattern if I was considering buying there

The neighborhood is one that people who are likely to be moving up in company might buy--- so likely to have transfers there
But the area along Precinct Line is going to be developed so houses that back to that raw land will have neighbors
That is Keller ISD
GCISD is preferred if u are paying Colleyvile taxes

Thank you loves2read! The house we've been eyeing sold...and you are right....it was Keller ISD. We've been thinking Southlake since it's Carroll ISD...but most houses in that area are a lil out of our budget except for Myer's Meadows and a couple of other lower end....would you recommend the "lower end" of Southlake?

the lower end of Southlake is still higher than many areas in Tarrant county
you have to make the decision based on several factors
Carroll schools are good but lot of that comes from the demographics they are working with
GCISD and Keller have good schools as do other districts
most people don't stop to consider if it is the kids that make the school's ratings great or the schools that make the kids' ratings great...

if you can afford the "low end" of Southlake you can probably afford Colleyville and other areas
you just need to be willing to wait for the house that is right/best deal for you and aggressively go after one that is...
