One of the Best Places to Live in Central Texas
Roughly thirty to forty-five minutes from either Dallas or Fort Worth, just to the south is the Gem of a City, Granbury Texas. With more waterfront living than just about any other city in Texas, it’s no doubt why Granbury has become a number one spot in the country for retirees, families, and just about anyone who wants to live a lifestyle involving water. Granbury sits in a unique bend in the Brazos River, which in and of itself, creates lots of riverfront real estate, it’s also home to Lake Granbury, a 8,310 acre lake on the Brazos River. So if you’re into luxury waterfront living, or just waterfront living, be sure to check out homes for sale in Granbury Texas.
As one of the early waterfront master-planned communities in town, Indian Harbor offers a wide range of diversity in its real estate and homes for sale. It’s very affordable, even having a selection of mobile homes and modular homes for sale, with a range of varying lot sizes. It is a gated community, with 24 hour security, and a fire department just outside the gates. Indian Harbor is a popular community for all types and has plenty of amenities to offer even the most demanding home buyer. Here, you can play tennis, go for a swim in the Indian Harbor Community Center, or spend some family time on the playground. Of course there is a marina with boat ramp, slip rentals, and a quaint café on the lake. Indian Harbor even offers RV facilities, which is great for anyone wanting to visit.
Another community more on the Fort Worth side of the City is Meander Estates. There are still plenty of land lots and homes for sale in Meander Estates, as it hasn’t yet been fully built out. Meander Estates creates a close knit community, with community parks, playgrounds, and sports courts such as Tennis and Basketball. Meander Estates strives to provide a rural living lifestyle in a neighborhood that has about an equal balance of families and retirees. A great asset to Meander Estates is its proximity to the Historic Downtown Square in Granbury, one of the best places for fabulous shopping in Texas. Recently awarded TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence Award, the Downtown Square is a shopper’s paradise. Also nearby are the full amenities of the town, including all shopping, dining, and grocery.
The Peninsula On Lake Granbury
Situated on the North end of Town, The Peninsula on Lake Granbury is one of the closer communities to the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Again, this is another community that is very close to the Historic Downtown Square, a world renowned shopping destination. The Peninsula sits in a bend in what was formerly the Brazos River. Following the damming of the river in 1969, it’s one of three dams on the river that have created lakes. Another wonderful place to consider buying or building your next home.
The final master-planned community in this series, Waters Edge is located right in the middle of Granbury Texas, immediately on the banks of Lake Granbury, part of the Brazos River. Here, you’ll get a small community feel, but access and proximity to plenty of entertainment, shopping, dining, and recreation, including golf! Waters Edge offers a boat ramp that is private and exclusive to the use of community residents, a great benefit to have when just about every home in the community sits on the water. If you want to live in a beautiful city, with amazing views of hills, lakes, rivers, and much of what nature has to offer, we hope you’ll consider buying your next home on the Water’s Edge!
