The events of the past eighteen months have inspired many of us to evaluate our jobs, homes, and cities and change what isn’t working. For some, this entailed moving to a new home or community.
Many of those who moved did so to leave high-cost, urban areas in favor of a more affordable new home community like Harvest by Hillwood in Argyle/Northlake, Texas. That comes as no surprise. These neighborhoods offer new, energy-efficient homes with a wide range of benefits! Let’s explore why so many homebuyers are saying, “Alexa, show me the best new homes communities near me!”
Loads of homebuyers are making the move to places like Harvest because they thirst for a simpler way of life. You will find plenty of that quaint, small town charm here in our community of new homes. Yet, you really don’t have to give up any of the wonderful conveniences that you’ve grown accustomed to living in the big city. Harvest is located along the I-35W corridor where shopping, dining, healthcare, and entertainment options abound. And it’s also convenient to DFW International and Alliance Airports, just 12 miles from thriving Denton, TX and only a 35-minute commute to Fort Worth.
Education is always a priority for homebuyers and Harvest residents have it made in that department. Depending on their home’s location within the community, children here will attend schools in either the Argyle or Northwest Independent School Districts. Both districts are highly acclaimed and growing fast!
Younger school-age children can walk or bike to school, since both districts have an elementary school located on the Harvest grounds! Northwest ISD students attend Lance Thompson Elementary while Argyle ISD students attend Argyle West Elementary. Argyle ISD also has plans to build a brand-new middle school within the community in the future.
One of the most appealing aspects of living in a new home community is the fabulous array of amenities that come along with home ownership. Harvest has all the niceties that buyers expect from a new home community, like beautiful pools, workout facilities, playgrounds, parks, and trails for residents to enjoy. But a quick look at our amenity map reveals that there is so much more!
How many new home communities boast a 160-year-old farmhouse where you can meet friends for a latte, enjoy a treat, or shop for a gift? Not many. Besides Farmhouse Coffee & Treasures, Harvest has multiple resort-style pools, two fitness facilities (including a brand new indoor/outdoor fit barn with sports courts and a pool), a dog park, an outdoor kitchen, a catch-and-release fishing pond, and many places to gather, play games, and relax with friends.
And to top it all off, there is the Harvest Farm, the centerpiece of the community. It’s our reason for being, in many ways. Harvest was designed to be a new home community where people who value a farm-to-table lifestyle can live in an agrihood and pursue their farming passions. That’s why we built the community around a working commercial farm and brought in a professional farmer to run it and help homeowners with any and all questions.
The Farm includes a demonstration garden, a community garden (where residents can work as much or as little as they like), orchards, and individual plots that homeowners can access to cultivate their favorite vegetables, herbs, and flowers.
As if the community’s amenities did not offer enough to keep everyone busy, homeowners at Harvest still have more options when it comes to entertainment. Our lifestyle community offers lots of activities and events each week for homeowners to enjoy.
Our award-winning lifestyle manager plans exciting new things for residents of all ages to do. Examples include exercise classes, bunco nights, arts & crafts, food drives, mini concerts, story time for kids, movie nights, parties, and so much more! Participating in these events is, of course, totally optional but it’s a great way to meet and get to know others in the community. They are a big hit with residents!
The last–but not least–benefit on our list is the fantastic new construction homes you will find at Harvest. We partner with DFW’s top new home builders to construct homes in sizes and styles to fit just about any taste and budget. Our new home community offers everything from large homes of over 4,000 square feet to townhomes and patio homes in the 1,500 to 2,000 square foot range.
Each of our builders offer model homes for you to visit and there you can ask the representatives any questions you may have. Or if you prefer, take advantage of our virtual home shopping experience which allows you to shop by selecting your favorite home design, your ideal lot, or a spec home that is already completed or is currently under construction.
