Anyone have personal experience with the Prestonwood Estates neighborhood and the schools that neighborhood feeds into?

We currently reside in Saginaw and have enjoyed our years here, but hubby has taken a new job in Grand Prairie and we are looking to get a little further east. We find ourselves driving to Hurst often, whether it's for restuarants or shopping, and really like the area.

Our budget is under 200K. Would prefer no HOA. We have 2 young kids, so schools are important. Our oldest is big into baseball, so a league and fields close by would be an added plus. Would love an older neighborhood with kids riding bikes or playing basketball in their driveways...ahhh...is that only in movies these days?

Would love any feedback on Prestonwood Estates or any other areas that may fit the bill Thanks in advance!

Birdville ISD-==WA Porter --the zoned elementary--was rated exemplary I think before they put ratings into stasis over the new STAAR testand Smithfield was probably a "recognized" middle school--
Richland has good band program and Birdville has some excellent programs in the video arts and drama, baseball is usually better than football if I remember...

the Mid Cities have very strong youth athletic assoc--Tri-Cities Baseball is very active

Tri-Cities Baseball Association - (Hurst, TX) - powered by LeagueLineup.com

but might have done registration for spring/summer leagues

good YMCA in Bedford with Tball and baseball

the RE site I use shows only two homes listed in Prestonwood at this time--maybe some are FSBO

as far as your price range and no HOA--
Mayfair in Hurst which is in HEB ISD looks like it fits the bill
have couple of friends who live there--nice neighborhood with mix of empty nesters/young families
Greentree Addition which is off Harwood just east of Precinct Line shows no HOA
there is home there listed AS IS under 200K--depending on the problems that would be a good price for that neighborhood

Bedford Meadows in Bedford/HEBISD has some homes in your price range--no HOA--zoned for Shady Brook and Harwood Jr high (one of best in area) and Trinity

Bedford Parc in Bedford/HEBISD Meadow Creek Elem and Harwood JH and Trinity--probably best rated elem in HEB--north of Harwood--easy access to 183 (or as easy as anything is these days) or can take Cheek Sparger over to 360...

Harwood Terrace neighborhood--HEBISD--Bedford Heights (strong elem) Bedford Jr High and Bell--top IB school and strong baseball program--EAST of Brown Trail and south of Cheek Sparger

these homes are going to be older--which you said you were looking for--but it is a crap shoot as to whether or not any have been updated since they were built--or how well...and most of them are going to be 3/2 homes with maybe 2 living areas--
have to go up in price to see mainly 4/2 or especially 4/3

will PM a good RE site for looking and it will show if the subdivision has HOA or not--
our original home in Bedford had a voluntary HOA which we joined and found helpful so you might see some of the older subdivision with VOL ...
not all HOAs are bad...

Check out The Lakes of River Trails near the intersection of Precinct Line @ Trinity Blvd. Technically Fort Worth but Hurst zip code on the north side of Trinity and HEB schools. Just a couple miles south of NorthEast Mall and restaurants. There is an HOA but the dues are only $45/quarter that is mainly for the upkeep of the lakes and entrances.
