River Oaks, Phase Two is one of earlier developments in Fairview and the sister development to the original River Oaks. Trees are king in Texas and both River Oaks was blessed with many more than its share.
The main difference between the two phases of River Oaks is the school districts. River Oaks Phase Two is within McKinney ISD while the original River Oaks across the street is within Lovejoy ISD. Out here in Fairview and Lucas, school district lines sometimes follow streets, creeks, and natural landmarks, and sometimes nothing at all. The school district lines can even run right through the middle of a home. There’s a long history of how those school district boundaries came into existence, but no-one is predicting they will ever change.
The homes in River Oaks Phase Two are on one acre minimums and all are on septic systems. Natural gas was not available when River Oaks was developed, so the homes are either all electric or have propane gas tanks. This is a true custom home neighborhood and many were built by Gilley Custom Homes.
If you like the Hill Country of Texas, you’ll love River Oaks with its small, winding streets running under a canopy of trees throughout the development. It really is beautiful and kid friendly.
River Oaks homes sometimes provide good buying opportunities, especially if you’re ready to take on a renovation. You can replace or renovate the home, but you’ll never recreate these beautiful wooded lots. It’s almost within walking distance of 3 million SF of retail, restaurant, and entertainment at the Villages at Allen and Fairview. From River Oaks, you can be on Central Expwy (Hwy 75) or SH 121 headed for Frisco or DFW Airport in just a few short minutes.
