That area is easy access from I20 and Silver Creek Road.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Is Boswell high school still a good school? I remember it was built kind of like a juior college campus. What are property values like now in Lake Country compared to the peak in 2006? How much are they down?

I met another woman at my son's school the other night who has just relocated to the area because her husband got a job at Lockheed Martin. She said that she and her husband looked all around the Ft. Worth area, and finally decided on our area because the school district is wonderful, and the commute wasn't bad.

She said that the only area that they liked that had a similarly rated school system had homes in the $750k range, which was beyond her family's price range.

My OH works just around the corner from Lockhead and we moved to Aledo 2 years ago...we love it here. My kids love the schools (high school and middle school) and we love being out in the country, but near enough to FW to enjoy all it has to offer :-)

I would also suggest looking at Keller. We live in South Keller right on the border of North Richland Hills. Your husband could probably avoid 35 due to our location. The schools are rated exemplary and recognized in my neighborhood. Moderator cut: no advertising

If you look in the true NW quarter of Ft Worth, you can avoid I-35 by taking loop 820. It's not nearly as heavily-trafficked as the loop is on the east side.
