Why Pecan Square is the Best Community of Northlake New Homes for Sale

Buyers in the market for a new home in DFW are flocking to Pecan Square by Hillwood. Created by the renowned residential developers at Hillwood Communities, Pecan Square is a 1,200-acre master-planned community of new homes in Northlake, TX between Fort Worth and Denton, and a short drive from Dallas. Pecan Square is a unique neighborhood with amenities and conveniences you are not likely to find in any other development with Northlake homes for sale. Learn why we think this community is the best place to find new homes in Northlake, TX!

North Texas Heritage is Central to our Community

From its inception, the creators of Pecan Square had a unique vision for this master-planned community of new construction homes in Northlake. The concept was an ambitious one: to design a neighborhood that recaptures the rural heritage of our North Texas roots coupled with technology-equipped homes that are surrounded by contemporary amenities

Pecan Square was thoughtfully designed to have a centrally located “town square,” just like many small Texas towns had decades ago. So central is this concept that it is even reflected in our name. Our town square is home to many of the amenities (with even more on the way!) that make our community of Northlake new homes such a wonderful place to live. There’s Jackson Hall, a comfortable place to gather with friends and play games, the expansive Lawn for outdoor recreation and relaxation, our beautiful swimming pool, and the Post & Parcel that has Amazon Hub lockers. There’s also the Arena, a 22,000-square-foot covered pavilion with sports courts, giant TV screens, a stage, and more. 

Another feature of the Square is our co-working space within the Greeting House. This fantastic venue has all the amenities you would expect at a co-working facility including conference rooms, a printer and copier, cozy nooks, workstations, and free Wi-Fi, all free for our residents to use. It’s even home to Jack’s Snacks, a place where residents and visitors can purchase snacks and beverages.

Respecting Our Piece of the Texas Prairie

Our community is built on 1,200 acres of pristine North Texas pasture land and we take our stewardship of the land very seriously. When Pecan Square first took shape, we knew that we would preserve the majestic, decades-old pecan trees that shaded the property. These huge, mature trees were the inspiration for our community’s name and today they line the main streets of our neighborhood, giving a measure of beauty and character that’s difficult to find in other Northlake new home communities

Each of Hillwood’s Live Smart communities is committed to caring for the Earth. Our builders use energy-efficient building practices and our neighborhoods are designed with adaptive landscapes that require less water to maintain. Pecan Square even has a horticulturalist who conducts gardening classes and provides tips to help homeowners irrigate efficiently and choose water-wise plants.

Modern Technology is a Focus in Our Northlake Homes

We’ve already said technology is a big focus at Pecan Square, and why shouldn’t it be? We need it to live a productive, satisfying life. That’s why every one of our Northlake new homes comes standard with our Canopy technology bundle built-in. This means every one of our Northlake homes includes full coverage Wi-Fi and super-fast, half-gig Internet from the day you move in.

Not only that, but each of our Northlake homes comes equipped with an Amazon Echo Show and a Ring Video doorbell. These amazing features add convenience to life, amp up your productivity, and help you meet your neighbors and engage with the community. You can ask Amazon Alexa to notify you when your package arrives at the Post & Parcel, make a video call to your neighbors, or tell you about upcoming community events.

Of course, not all of us are technical wizards so, if you need help, our on-site technology expert is available to give you in-person support when you need it.

Community Connection is the Best Part of Northlake New Home Community

There are a lot of reasons to love Pecan Square but perhaps the best part of living in our master-planned community of new construction homes in Northlake is its wonderful sense of neighborliness. Pecan Square residents get to know each other naturally when they meet on neighborhood trails, at the pool, on the lawn, when using the co-working space, or at any one of the other wonderful amenities.

Even better, as one of Hillwood’s Live Smart Communities, Pecan Square residents have access to a year-round Lifestyle Program designed to help neighbors get to know each other. Our full-time, on-site Lifestyle Manager plans 300+ activities and events for residents to enjoy such as movies on the lawn, holiday parties, crafting classes, pool parties, teen events, community service projects, fitness classes, shopping marketplaces, and much, much more!
