Highland Village is located in south central Denton County, approximately 30 miles northwest of downtown Dallas and 37 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Highland Village's proximity to DFW International Airport, the Las Colinas business center and downtown Dallas is likely to make Highland Village residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.

Highland Village new home construction

Since there is little, if any, undeveloped land in Highland Village available for residential development, new home construction is very limited. The only subdivision in Highland Village where anything other than one-off new home construction is now occurring is Wichita Estates.

I frequently am asked by folks who have never bought a new construction home if they should be assisted by a buyer’s agent when selecting a builder and when negotiating their new home purchase. Most of the time my answers are "Yes" and "Yes."

Community amenities/activities

One of the truly outstanding things about living in Highland Village is its exceptional community amenities.


Approximately 16 miles and 26 minutes drive time without traffic from central Highland Village to DFW Airport passenger terminals ... 23 miles and 27 minutes to the Las Colinas business center ... 30 miles and 39 minutes to downtown Dallas
