While new builds still are in demand north of Loop 1604, the hassle of daily traffic en route to work and home have made more centrally located neighborhoods like Deerfield an increasingly popular alternative. The original Deerfield enclave now is in its 30s, and its siblings—gated communities with similarly-styled homes—are closer to two decades old. Along with spacious 3,000-square-foot-plus houses that have often been updated, Deerfield offers larger-than-average lots, mature trees, parks, pools and Northeast ISD schools.
Its location near all the major roadways also makes it a prime place for plenty of restaurants and shops—including the nearby Longhorn Cafe, Blanco BBQ, River Tree Bistro and a weekly Hill Country Farmers Market. A community pool, tennis courts, basketball court and playground maintained through the HOA connect residents and make the neighborhood especially popular for families.
