15 min to Southlake Town Square, 15 min to DFW
DFW is a bit further than town center, can't make it to DFW in 15 from Thronbridge.
esp with the construction. 114 through southlake and grapevine is a mess in the AM and PM. It's taken me 30 minutes to get from white chappel to Texan drive at 7:30am

Yes Southlake Towncenter is 15 minutes!!

sundance square in 15-20 minutes? seriously? How do you go?
well maybe on sunday night. But no way during any sort of commute. it will take you 15-20 minutes just to get to the freeway. 30-45 minutes on daily commute basis. Best way is Davis to 121 and that is going to take about 40 minutes in rush hour.
820 is a mess and so is 35.

It's a nice neighobrhood and in a good location with very good schools and low crime.

I currently live in SOuthlake but plan to build in keller. Would I be entitled to any discounts on my property taxes since I am 68 yrs. old? I do have homestead here in southlake. I assume keller also has that exemption. Please advise. Maklepikow@hotmail.com

buy a 58K car--pay more tax because car's value is higher...

if you are planning to start a family--SCHOOLS should be the issue--not tax rate
you want to find a home that you can afford in the best ISD possible and frankly that is not FTW ISD--

while FTW ISD has some elementary schools are get good TAKS ratings--the middle schools are just horrible--and the only high school I would recommend is Paschal...and unless you buy in Paschal zone, it means trying for the lottery--

we live in north Hurst and my husband works in Sundance Sq--takes him about 25 min either way--
took him about 30 when we lived in Bedford...

the problem with the Mid-Cities is that there is relatively few newer homes--most homes are at least 10-15 yrs old--
you don't mention price
that is important but schools are really the top factor when people are looking for a house...
What about Trimble Tech? Everyone keeps claiming that Paschal is better when it comes to academics but Trimble Tech is the only school who has achieved a national rank multiple times...

Neighborhood is just south of Davis Blvd. and Precinct Line Road.
We were just there last weekend, visiting the park in the area. I can vouch that it's pretty!

That said, I'd think it would take more than 15 minutes to get from there to Southlake Town Square unless you caught every light and had little traffic.
