An established neighborhood on the old grounds of the Willow Bend Polo and Hunt Club, Willow Bend provides homes for nearly 4,000 residents. This neighborhood is found east of the Dallas North Tollway between West Parker Road and West Park Boulevard with the west border of Preston Road. It was established in the late 198os by a Norman Brinker, a restaurateur and polo enthusiast.
Many of the homes are two-story brick homes with a French country or English Tudor style. This isn’t the most luxurious neighborhoods, but provides many luxuries at a more affordable price than many other neighborhoods throughout the North Dallas area.
The Gleneagles Country club surrounds the neighborhood and provides plenty of amenities for members. Homes sell for an average of $450K to $600K and the average lot in Willow Bend is one-third acre. Many of the homes are over 5,000 square feet in size with the average range from 3,500 to 5,000 square feet.
Willow Bend is served by the Plano ISD, which provides some of the best schools in the area close to the homes located in the neighborhood. It’s not a small neighborhood like most of the other luxury choices in North Dallas, which provides many opportunities for friendships with neighbors throughout.
Those relocating to the DFW area choose Willow Bend because of the chic living and the many conveniences it provides. The country club right at the backdoor and the many nearby shops provide the diversity needed for any family. The Shops at Legacy are close by including many great restaurants, such as Jasper’s, Cru Wine Bar and Steve Fields’ Steak and Lobster Lounge.
Willow Bend is also close the Frito-Lay and JC Penney corporate headquarters and provides many homes for the management and executives of these two companies.
