About the neighborhood
This neighborhood is great value for the money. It's close proximity to downtown yet still feeling like you're away from the busy city is the main draw. The school system is still catching up in this area so you have fewer families choosing homes here. It is changing in favor of the family though. This community has wrestled with flooding over the years so due diligence in home selection is a must. The huge old trees, wide streets and creek frontage make this neighborhood very appealing.
The average home size of the community is just under 3,000 sqft and the average sale price is $390,000.
Schools: Blazier Elementary, Paredes Middle School, Akins High
Onion Creek Golf
Private Country Club
Onion Creek has 27 holes. The original 18 hosted the Legends of Golf back in the 1970's and 80's and is respected as the birthplace of the senior golf tour. This course runs along the creek on many holes and is covered with huge old oak trees. This layout coupled with the sloping terrain can get you in trouble if you don't hit the ball straight. It's a very challenging course, but a fair course. And, the greens are difficult to read for the best of putters. Super fun to play, especially if you have a caddy to help you with insider knowledge.
