Southlake, TXHomes for Sale and Neighborhoods
Officially incorporated in 1956, Southlake remained a largely rural area until DFW International Airport was opened in the 1970s, after which Southlake experienced a population boom that hasn’t really slowed down. Today Southlake is primarily residential, with the exception of its thriving business district and town square area.
Cost of Living
Southlake is a relatively expensive place to live, due to a median home price well above the state of Texas and the nation. However, costs such as groceries and utilities are much closer to or less than national and state averages.
Highway 114 runs through the middle of Southlake, allowing residents relatively easy access to much of the northern Metroplex.

The Texas Eagle Amtrak line makes stops in both Dallas and Fort Worth, and DFW Airport is just a 10-mile drive away.
Much of Southlake is served by the Carroll Independent School District, but depending on where you live, Grapevine-Colleyville ISD, Keller ISD, and Northwest ISD also serve residents of Southlake. Preschool options are plentiful, and many of the private school options are a short drive away.
The northern edge of Southlake runs along Grapevine Lake, allowing outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds plentiful outdoor recreation options in the warmer months. The Bob Jones Nature Center, also near the lake, is another popular spot among lovers of all things outdoors.
