Yes, very rural, the locals here in Fort Worth refer to it as redneck. Nice lake near by. Extremes of big custom homes not far from beat up trailers on a plot of land. I like being part of the Metroplex yet still somewhat country. Depends on what you are looking for. If you prefer the ammenities of a nice community I would choose Southlake, Grapevine, Keller or North Fort Worth. I considered Azle but chose to live in Nort Fort Worth. Interesting statistic, Azle is something like 95% white folk.

A few years back Azle was fairly rural, but if you're looking for true "rural" I don't think it's what you're expecting. There are many neighborhoods that are somewhat secluded, not your typical subdivision type situation. There have been tons of larger custom homes on larger lots built out that way recently, but as gunslinger says, there are mobile homes, older, run-down homes, and newer nice homes in different parts of Azle. I've got a few friends that live in some nicer homes out there. All in all, I'd say Azle is a pretty good place, depending upon what you're looking for.

What brought you to single out Azle specifically?

Azle has its own ISD ---but because of way TX does school districts--you might have Azle mail address and be in Springtown ISD. Maybe some of ther other districts in that area as well....or the school could have FTW city address and be in Azle school district--confusing, isn't it...

this is link to TEA web page w/maps of school districts in state

http://deleon.tea.state.tx.us/SDL/Forms/ (broken link)


where my daughter lives and teaches in Fl--public schools are all centralized by ounties---all pulbic schools in one county have same school board like Sarasota county/Dade county---simplies it a lot in some ways but does not necessarilty give better quality of education, more fairness in taxing/money issues, or more local control...

Hi,

I am also considering moving to Azle, Tx. We found some acre lots in Deer Ridge Estates but I would like to know more about the area. We also want to custom build and there are some many builders. Can someone please make some recommendations on a custom builder???????

I have enjoyed living close to Azle and being a part of that community. Check under the Azle heading, for I just posted a more lengthy comment about Azle there. I lived in Fort Worth for 12 years before moving close to Azle and I certainly would not say it is a community of rednecks!!! There are lots of wonderful people living there and you can buy any size house you want. You can live in a gated community, in a waterfront neighborhood, an older, more established area, a subdivision out from Azle with lots of land....there is any kind of housing there that you will find in any other town. You just need to check it out and see if it fits your needs.
