Pecan Square – The Ultimate in Convenient Living

Life is busy, and the last thing you need is extra hassle on top of your already packed schedule. Home should be a place to stop, pause, and refresh, but why stop there? Why not live in a community where life is a little easier because almost everything you need is within easy reach?

Pecan Square by Hillwood, a master-planned community in Northlake, TX, supports convenient living from top to bottom, from its location to the home designs to the fabulous on-site amenities. Let’s learn more about the conveniences homeowners enjoy at Pecan Square.

Cutting Edge Homes for a Modern Lifestyle

Each of our homes is equipped with smart home features from move-in for a seamless integration between award-winning design and state-of-the-art technology. Our Canopy technology bundle gives residents the best in connectivity and home technology.

Super-Fast Home WiFi for Work, School, or Play

Half-gig internet and full-home WiFi coverage make it easy to work from home with zero glitches or delays.  This blazing fast Internet is also great if the kids have homework to finish, or if someone’s got some gaming to do.

(Smart lighting and thermostat features require an additional purchase.)
