When our realtor took us through Southlake she said the area North of 114 was much noisier and that's why it has been the later to develop. Estes Park, etc. get the noise more than the area South of 114. and she lives in Southlake...just repeating what she said.

North of 114 definitely gets more of the noise. Spend 15 minutes in the Lowes parking lot, and you'll get an earful. One of the normal flight paths runs NW from there, so you can get an idea of which neighborhoods hear more of the noise.

Best bet is to stay south of 1709, or west of White Chapel.

I wonder where you realtor lives in Southlake... could I guess she lives south? :-)

Not arguing that the noise isnt there...it is... we just got used to it, and I think its the case for others as I have heard from them. But you can count the rivets on the planes as they cross the Southlake Blvd area. I guess when you talk about getting south enough to almost be in Colleyville, you wouldnt hear the planes.

Back to the OP, just depends what you are looking for. We didnt even consider anything south of 114, because at that time most of the homes were a bit older, 90s or 80s, and we felt that it didnt have as much of the "Texas" feel that we were looking for. Could have been Plano or anywhere else. North of 114 you will see Longhorns, Horses, Farms, trees, etc...it is much quieter in terms of cars and traffic. And then there is the Bob Jones Park, Nature Center, Lake Grapevine, etc. Our realtor told us homes are slower to sell north of 114 because it is all new construction in the $1MM+ range...which makes a lot of sense to me vs. planes, but who knows. As they say, to each their own, we have many friends that live in the older suburbs and are happy there (although I dont think any of them would say that they are without plane noise). Just giving my opinion that if I had $575k to spend, I would march straight to Kirkwood Hollow (and we dont live there by the way).

Definately agree.

west of WhiteChappel Or even Carroll will DRASTICLY reduced the air traffic noise. planes are higher and it's not in the runway path like the area right by Lowes/Costco.

There really aren't areas to avoid in southlake for crime or schools. ALL the schools are good and crime is low throughout this part of Tarrant county.

Actually she lives North of 114, and wasn't trying to steer me either way--she said she thinks all areas of Southlake are great, and each community has a lot to offer, and that many of the communities North of 114 are beautiful (I looked at several), but she stopped the car and showed me planes coming right over us, and pointed out that it *could* be a resale issue. I don't think it would bother me, but I am interested to hear that people have differing opinions on where the noise is...so maybe it just depends on the day?

I think that Estes Park gets the worst of it north of 114...I wouldnt want to be in that neighborhood because of the planes...but I think with all the others north of 114 its not that much of an issue (just my opinion)

We live out in Clariden Ranch and when they do come over they are very high...
