Westlake Real Estate

When it comes to having money or fame in North Texas, Westlake is the new city to live in. This small community has become a magnet for celebrity entertainers, professional athletes and business leaders.

One of only four Texas cities to be named a Gold Level Scenic City, Westlake was named the nation’s most affluent community by Forbes Magazine in 2011.

The city is an oasis of natural beauty that balances open spaces with sophisticated housing developments, trails and highly regarded schools. It features some of the region’s most desired golf-course communities and has a variety of custom homes and luxurious estates listed by Allie Beth Allman & Associates.

Only a half century old, Westlake is known for its world-class commercial developments, master-planned residential neighborhoods and the exemplary Westlake Academy.

In 1956, Dallas lawyer Glenn Turner bought 2,000 acres along State Highway 114 and created the Circle T Ranch. Soon after, ranches and homeowners in the surrounding community incorporated, taking the name Westlake. The northern section later became the community of Trophy Club.

Westlake enjoys outstanding public schools in three independent school districts, Northwest Independent School District, Keller Independent School District and Carroll Independent School District.

Residents may also enroll their children in Westlake Academy, a prestigious and innovative charter school. It is ranked as a top school nationally by US News & World Report, Newsweek, and the Washington Post.
