A new residential development, The Oaks of Argyle, recently broke ground adjacent to Argyle High School at the end of Cook Street.
The 40-acre community includes 107 homesites on approximately one-quarter-acre lots.
The custom-built homes will be priced from $400,000 to be completed in two phases.
“Construction of 50 homes in the first phase is expected to start this fall,” said Justin Welborn, managing partner of The Oaks of Argyle and a partner with developer James R. Harris (JRH) Partners of Fort Worth.
Participating builders in the new $55 million neighborhood so far include Village Homes, Bannister Custom Homes, Noble Classic Homes, Hamilton Homes, and Craftsman Village Homes.
JRH Partners received unanimous approval for The Oaks of Argyle from both the Argyle Planning & Zoning Commission and Town Council.
“When we met JRH Partners, we fell in love with their plan for The Oaks,” said Argyle Mayor Peggy Krueger. “Justin showed us some of their developments in Fort Worth, and we knew they would be the right developer for Argyle. And the town is embracing their plan.”
Despite the new rooftops, Argyle’s semi-rural nature will be left intact, according to the developer.
“Our intent is to leave the land in its native form as much as possible,” said Welborn. “There are currently 2,400 post oak trees on the property. The homebuilders may remove trees from the footprint of the main structure and the driveway, but they must adhere to the Town of Argyle’s mitigation policy regarding removal of additional trees from a home site.”
The neighborhood is in a wooded area with eight-acres of parkland planned including walking paths, seasonal creeks, natural play structures, post oaks, and prairie grasses.
