|Highland Village Texas Real Estate|
Originally a weekend getaway for Dallas residents, Highland Village Texas was incorporated in 1963 when about 100 owners of the homes built on the rolling terrain along the south shore of Lake Lewisville Texas decided to move there permanently.
Highland Village Texas is now an upscale bedroom community 6.4 square miles in size. Population currently is approximately 13,000, and is projected to grow to about 16,000 by 2010. Approximately one-half of the homes in Highland Village are located in the master planned communities of Highland Shores and Castlewood Texas.
Over the past few years Highland Village Texas has consistently been ranked as one of the best five places to live in the DFW metroplex and was recently named by the Texas Department of Public Safety the safest community in North Texas.
All four of the Lewisville Texas ISD schools located in Highland Village were rated as Exemplary by the Texas Education Agency in 2002. Three of these schools also have been recognized as National Blue Ribbon Schools by the U.S. Department of Education
