Quest is a little hidden gem. I never could figure out how it got its name, but it does take a bit of a quest to get to it. It’s a smaller development, around 12 homes or so, so I wouldn’t imagine there are too many kids. There are several things I really like about it however.
First, it’s off the beaten path. You have to be going there to get there. You take a winding 2 lane asphalt Road (Orr Rd) to and even smaller Fitzhugh Mill Rd and you’d pass it if you didn’t know what you were looking for. Of course, as the land is developed around it, that might change, but for now, it’s almost a secret.
It’s also unique in there are homes on heavily wooded lots and also homes that sit high on the hill without a tree around them. If you like the high ground or a home nestled in the trees, you can find both.
Another thing I like about it is the drive down a heavily wooded asphalt lane. You won’t find a prettier, natural setting in Fairview. However, the little road leading to it sits low and the land just to the north is in Wilson Creek flood plain. I can’t tell you what Fitzhugh Mill Rd looks like after a long rainy spell, just something to be aware of.
What’s odd is even though all the lots in Quest are large (up to about 5 acres) and you feel like you are really out in the country, the subdivision is right next to Heritage Ranch with more than a thousand zero lot line homes and golf course. If you’re a golfer and live in one of the homes on the north side of the street, all you’d have to do is open a gate and you could drive your golf cart right up Mustang Drive to the clubhouse and pro shop.
One last thing. The development is in Lovejoy ISD and that’s the major draw for this entire area. You REALLY feel like you’re getting out into the country in Quest, but it’s probably about 7-8 minutes to 3 million sf of entertainment, dining, and shopping at Stacy and Central Expwy.
