we saw that development a couple of years ago when it was first platted---it is garden villa / zero lot type so the houses are close...
that area has some good and not so good factors--

if elementary school is important--
it feeds into Porter Elementary in BISD and that is rated exemplary--think it is a good school--so that is good but don't know if it is 2 mi from the development so that kids can ride the bus or if parents have to drive them--because it is not walkable...

it is close to WalMart and Target further north a the Davis intersection with some other shopping in that area and not too far from 1709/Keller/Southlake border---and it is not that far from the Kohl's/Kroger/Walmart area in Hurst itself---

Precinct Line is busy street but there is a light on Glade to get on it--which is good--you can go east on Glade all the way to Hwy 26 or even 121 if you need to and that is not too bad except for couple of school zones
it is probably as safe an area as any part of the Mid-Cities as far as I know...
the fire station S of Hwy 26 by Walmart is the one that would come to you


IF the Tarrant County rail goes through I think the area on Precinct Line close to there where the railroad crosses will be the train station in NRHills/colleyville/Midcities area so that might be really good or not so good depending on whether or not you would want to benefit by it or would hate hving it in your area...there is a NRHills maintenance warehouse located close to the tracks and that could be relocated or there is some other unused land...it has been discussed but not dedicated at this time...

Precinct Line is a BUSY road going through there--if you are familiar with the area--lots of people use it daily and the trains go through--right now just the CottonBelt line to FTW from Grapevine only once or twice a day during the week and couple more on weekends--but if the rail package passes then the trains will be much more numerous--I don't know if it blows the whistle now since the railroad crossing has gates now (I think)...
did your realtor mention about that area's location IF the rail line does become fact?
right now Dallas Dart owns it and won't sell it to FTW/Tarrant county and they don't want to do the rail line unless they own it--so don't know if they will ever reach agreement...

some of those homes back up to a greenbelt that is next to a creek--not sure what it is named or if there was trouble with it flooding a couple of years ago when we had so much rain in June---

It's a nice neighborhood with beautiful homes. I had a property listed that backed up to Precinct Line Road, and that was challenging to market to prospective buyers. I believe the Tarantula Train goes behind the neighborhood, so some of the homes will see it and/or hear it on a regular basis. Overall, it's a nice community that is convenient to shopping, schools, and entertainment!

Bumping this because I'm wondering how that area and neighborhood may have changed since 2009. Any feedback?

the neighborhood is probably not that much different
