More Shopping and a New Look for The Shops at Highland Village

If you are looking to build a new construction home in Flower Mound, Highland Village, Lantana, or Argyle, then you will be excited to hear that new and better shopping is coming your way! This area of North Texas is already a great place to build your new dream home, and it will only get better.

Developers of The Shops at Highland Village – a premiere open air shopping center located at the Highland Village and Flower Mound border – have announced a multimillion dollar renovation for the facility.

The new look and feel began to take shape last Fall when Whole Foods Market opened up in the center. Trademark Property Co., the developer of the property and also a major player in the renovation at Victory Park in Dallas, said that the new concept will have more open areas for gathering, dining, and relaxing. Also in the plan are new landscaping, new signage, and new facades for the buildings. A big part of the $3-$4 million dollar renovations will be to make the entire center a destination for all things shopping, dining, and socializing. Residents in the area can expect to see more potted plants, open air pavilions, play areas for kids, and more outdoor seating for restaurants as part of the plan.

Harvest – New Home Community in Argyle, TX

As Dallas-Fort Worth continues to expand, areas like Argyle continue to boom! What was once a sleepy, rural town is now gaining in popularity due to the small town feel of the community, yet the proximity to all the major amenities of the suburbs.

Harvest – a new master planned community at the corner of Interstate 35W and FM 407 – is technically in Northlake, TX, but borders Northlake and Argyle and feeds into Argyle Independent School District. Harvest is unique in that it is the first community built by Hillwood developers that hinges on five Live Smart Principles: sense of community, technology, healthy living, environmental stewardship, and education and enrichment.


What does that mean? Well, the community is created with an open concept that fosters bringing people together in the ways that small, rural towns did 100 years ago, but without compromising the state-of-the-art features of the modern  home. The neighborhood is complete with many open, green spaces, a pond for fishing, trails, community pool, cabanas, and even a neighborhood farm and garden right in the middle of it all!

Harvest is complete with a garden and huge greenhouse for the community to access and enjoy.

Harvest is a community that prides itself on simplification, and another way that they do this is by providing smart homes with smart features. Each homeowner will have access to an app that will let them check traffic on 35W before heading into work, remind them to take out their trash, manage their thermostat and security system remotely, view exterior security cameras, and more.

Harvest homes range from the $200,000+ and feature renowned builders Highland Homes, Plantation Homes, and David Weekley Homes.

Tips for Building Your Dream Home

Whether you are building a spec, semi-custom, or true custom home, it’s easy to overlook the small details that make a house a home that is livable, functional, and gorgeous! Here are a few tips of the trade to consider when building your new dream home:

  • Consider Ceiling Height: When designing your home, the ceiling height determines the openness of the home as much as the true square footage does. Consider upgrading to 10 foot + ceilings in order to give your home the airy openess you crave.
  • Invest in Your Closets: Home storage solutions are crucial to making your home uncluttered and orderly. Think about where storage will be located in the home, size of those storage spaces, and what the spaces will be used for. Want to take it up a notch? Ask your builder to install closet organization systems within each closet. While more costly, these solutions give you more usable space than just a shelf and clothes rod.
  • Lighting Matters: Where will the lights be in each room? Windows? Do they provide ample, pleasing light in each space? Lighting is crucial to ambiance so you’ll want to make sure you’re achieving your desired look. Another tip? Install dimmers throughout the home to adjust light throughout the day.
  • Splurge Well: Allow room in your budget for splurges that will make your home truly yours, adding character and functionality.
