Northlake Real Estate
Welcome to Northlake, Texas
Northlake is a growing community located in the southwest corner of Denton County, Texas, along Interstate Highway 35W and State Highway 114, between Fort Worth and Denton, and just 15 miles from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). Northlake benefits from its location in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, the 4th largest metropolitan area in the United States.
The Town of Northlake was incorporated on December 28, 1960. At that time Northlake consisted of only a number of ranches and very few other uses. In fact, after existing nearly 10 years as a town, the 1970 census recorded the population of Northlake as being only 20 people. The motivation to incorporate was to keep nearby cities from annexing the land. Although the town has grown considerably since its inception and more growth is sure to come, Northlake continues to value its rural heritage as it grows as a part of one of the fastest growing regions in the United States.
Northlake is located in an area of abundant educational opportunities with excellent public and private schools serving the community and numerous colleges and universities located in the North Texas region.
The Town of Northlake owns and maintains several properties. Some of these properties have existing facilities such as the site of the Public Works Building and Police Department and other sites with facilities for utility services. Other properties are reserved for future development by the Town for uses such as utility services, public safety, and parks.
While Northlake is primarily characterized by wide open spaces of undeveloped ranch land with rolling topography, the Town also benefits from the major highways which pass through providing easy access to points throughout North Texas but most notably the neighboring Texas Motor Speedway and Alliance Corridor.
