The Heart of West Plano, TX 75093 – A Guided Tour

The Heart of West Plano a guided tour

What a name… Plano, TX. I seriously had to think about if I wanted to live here 15 years ago because of the name Plain-O! It’s kind of like when you look for a home, clients always note the street  name to see if it works for them and if they can live with it and more important  on it!  Anyway, Plano got it name way back because it was on a flat plain,  miles of land for farming and cattle and so Plano was born.

A Guided Tour of West Plano

The west side of Plano was developed in the 1980’s and has just  recently been built out.  What is interesting about the west side is that west of the tollway the topography changes and it is more like Texas hill  country. There are actually hills, creeks, a nature preserve and many beautiful old trees that have weathered many a North Texas electrical storms. (and yes there is also, horses, cows & Texas longhorns)

This is the home of  zip codes 75093 & 75024. Around 91,000 proud.

If you are traveling north up the Dallas Tollway, between Plano Parkway and Spring Creek Parkway you are in the heart of West Plano. If you exit on Park and take a right you will find yourself home in Willow Bend & Gleneagles Country Club, a 18 hole beautiful golf course surrounded by luxurious custom homes. Willow Bend, back in the 80’s actually was an active Polo field, thus Willow Bend has an equestrian spirit to it, like Willow Bend Polo Estates. You will also find the communities of Lakeside, Old Shepard, Place, Gleneagles, Windhaven and Castlemere to name a few. If you turn left on Plano Parkway from the tollway you will dog leg around to another 18 hole golf course community called the Hills at Prestonwood and Hills of Indian Creek. Head north on Midway and you will hit the prestigious Shoal Creek neighborhood that is built on the best and most beautiful land in West Plano. Many other upscale communities such as Cypress Point, Glen Hollow Estates & Wolf Creek line the Midway Corridor just to name a few more. So if you are a golf fiend, you have truly found your new home, Gleneagles and Prestonwood are only a few miles apart. Besides golf, the schools are excellent, shopping & dining is nearby at Shops at Legacy and Shops at Willow Bend. Presbyterian and Baylor are just two of the excellent medical facilities close by. The Legacy Corporate Campus that is home to many national corporations.  This makes Plano an upscale community, only 20 miles north from downtown Dallas, that is truly divine!  Real Estate is also divine, you get a lot for your money, twice as much as Dallas proper. When considering the Dallas area for your relocation, Plano deserves your careful consideration, based on being:

  • centrally located – close to airports – major highways
  • beautiful topography
  • golf
  • shopping & dining
  • excellent schools
  • parks
  • top notch medical facilities & spas
  • real estate is a good appreciating value 

If only the name weren’t so plain. Here’s to Plano! Cheers!
