If you’re shopping for a Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) home beyond the noise and suburban sprawl of the city, look no further than the charming rural town of Argyle. In Denton County, Argyle is an up-and-coming North Texas town that has long flown under the radar of luxury homebuyers. However, as master-planned developments expand near Argyle, this rural gem of the DFW area likely won’t remain hidden for long.
If you’re interested in viewing Argyle homes for sale, consider the following information before beginning your search.
1. Argyle is a rural community
When you mention rural living in the same sentence as the DFW real estate market, most Texans will think you’re referencing an area far outside the metroplex’s massive, 11-county footprint. But a few places within DFW's sprawl can be readily classified as rural—including Argyle.
Argyle’s population is approximately 4,500 residents—with more on the way. A large contingent of new residents in Argyle is establishing homes in new communities near Interstate 35. East of that, the town melts into bucolic pastures, a few ranches and horse farms, and an array of massive homes standing sentry on large plots of land.
Even with the prevalence of new communities in Argyle, you feel a world away from the more hectic aspects of the DFW metroplex. Argyle represents one of the last few bastions of what DFW looked like before the area's emergence as a world-class metropolitan hub. Home buyers and real estate inventors love the Argyle area because it still captures the small town, pastoral vibe of North Texas, regardless of where you buy a home.
2. Convenient access to Dallas-Fort Worth
Conversely, while it's often lovely to believe you're miles away from civilization, the fact is that Argyle is surprisingly close to several major DFW attractions. It's an ideal location for those that appreciate keeping their professional life at the office and coming home to a comfortable, rural environment to unwind.
Consider Argyle's unexpected proximity to several of DFW's major urban centers—15 minutes to Denton, 30 minutes to both Fort Worth and Irving-Las Colinas, and 45 minutes southeast to Dallas. The DFW International Airport is just 30 minutes away, even with moderate traffic.
But the benefits of buying real estate in Argyle are doubly true for those who work from home. Most of Argyle's high-end luxury real estate—homes in master-planned communities and custom designs on multiple acres—feature a dedicated workspace. Many Argyle homes for sale offer a spacious study or office specifically designed to provide a functional work-from-home environment.
With this type of at-home professional accommodation, your travels from Argyle to other parts of the region can be less about work and more about having fun. You'll be just 15 minutes from the Texas Motor Speedway, 20 minutes to Grapevine Lake and Lake Lewisville, 30 minutes to Sundance Square or the Fort Worth Stockyards, and 45 minutes to watch the Dallas Cowboys or Texas Rangers play in Arlington. Not to mention the upscale shopping, dining, and entertainment less than 15 minutes from your Argyle home.
3. Many Argyle homes are in master-planned communities
One of the most tempting aspects of Argyle real estate is the town’s abundance of luxurious master-planned communities within an otherwise rural setting. On its own, that's not a huge surprise. If nothing else, the DFW suburbs are widely known for the prevalence of expansive, master-planned communities. Collin County is home to two of DFW's most successful, sought-after communities—Stonebridge Ranch in McKinney and Stonebriar Ranch in Frisco.
Closer to Argyle, Trophy Club dates back to the 1970s and was one of Texas' first genuine master-planned communities. Nearby Lantana and Flower Mound's Bridlewood are even more recent examples of successful master-planned developments enhancing a community's stature and livability.
Two significant developments lead the charge for Argyle’s real estate market, representing the best in rural DFW luxury living.
: Canyon Falls is a 1,199-acre community that straddles the boundaries of Argyle, Flower Mound, and Northlake. One of the most stunning new developments in the region, Canyon Falls homes for sale include several nationally renowned luxury builders, including Belclaire, Coventry, Drees, Highland, and Perry Homes.
Canyon Falls caters to an active lifestyle overall. Set along a landscape of lush trees and rolling prairie, residents experience 400 acres of outdoor recreation, including a 200-acre nature preserve, 14-mile trail network, multiple resort-style pools, several playgrounds, and catch and release ponds dotting the community.
- Harvest: An award-winning development encompassing 1,200 acres, Harvest will feature 4,000 homes when its build-out is complete—including traditional residences, patio homes, and townhouses. Coventry, David Weekly, Drees, Highland, and Toll Brothers are some of the builders showcased within the Harvest community.
Amenities feature a 1.5-mile long Central Park green space, multi-use porch, and barn, a coffee shop in a 100-year-old farmhouse, two resort-style pools, miles of community trails, an active community “harvest” farm, and an 11-acre catch and release lake.
4. Argyle’s outstanding schools
Perhaps the most celebrated aspect of the Argyle community and a primary reason for its increasing popularity is its schools. Many who research the community soon become aware of how highly regarded education is in Argyle. New residents are often surprised by just how exceptional the six public and single private schools are regarding state-wide rankings.
Including two elementary schools, a fifth-grade intermediate, two middle schools, and Argyle High School, there’s unmistakable consistency and quality across the public education students can receive in Argyle. The Argyle Independent School District ranks as the top school district in Denton County, the sixth-best district in DFW, and the eighth-best district in Texas.
Argyle also counts the award-winning Liberty Christian School
as part of its community for those seeking a private education for their children. This top-rated Christian K-12 school also serves surrounding communities and is an outstanding complement to Argyle's public system. Together, Argyle’s educational institutions ensure that regardless of their age, grade, or school— if you buy a home in Argyle, your child will receive a top-tier education.
