Those looking for a small-town atmosphere with big city convenience, are quietly making their way to one of Denton Counties best kept secrets—the Town of Argyle. Established in 1881 as the home to grist mills and cotton gins and named after the town in Scotland, Argyle consists of 11.4 square miles and is now home to almost 4,000 residents.

Located northwest of the DFW Metroplex, Argyle is within easy reach of larger cities including Fort Worth, Denton, Grapevine and Southlake. Its prime location is also close to DFW Airport, making it a convenient choice for business executives looking to enjoy a close-knit community away from big city life. Argyle is home to many small farms and ranches that offer the opportunity to own a piece of Texas history. The median home price here is just under $400,000.

Chosen as #6 on Denton County’s list of best neighborhoods, children here attend the highly rated Argyle Independent School District, including Argyle High School, home of the State Champion Eagles football and volleyball teams.

Thanks to its location at the crossroads of major cities, Argyle is known as a foodie destination, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The newly revitalized downtown area offers some great patios and gathering spots such as Earl’s 337 Pizza and the popular LSA Burger (which stands for Lone Star Attitude). Residents stop by Kimzey’s Coffee for a shot of espresso or chocolate milkshake and to check out the Hansel & Gretel-style cottage that houses the popular spot.

The close proximity to several large lakes also makes Argyle a sportsman’s paradise, where weekends are spent on the water enjoying fishing, waterskiing, wakeboarding and sailing.
