Communities in Waxahachie, Texas

Waxahachie, billed as the Crape Myrtle Capital, is also known as the Gingerbread City, thanks to its distinctive array of Victorian-style homes. Just south of Dallas, the small city with the big name boasts serene country living for new homes with easy access to the Metroplex. Waxahachie even has a silver-screen claim to fame. The city has played a role in such major films as Tender Mercies, Places in the Heart and the aptly titled Trip to Bountiful. A trip to bountiful Waxahachie leads to new homes for sale in a city famous for its architecture, arts, sports and rich Texas history.

Waxahachie is a history lover’s dream. One of the Metroplex city’s most popular destinations, the Scarborough Renaissance Festival, takes visitors back to the 16th century. The city’s annual Gingerbread Trail Festival brings home Waxahachie’s delightful Victorian-inspired “gingerbread” architecture.

New homes for sale are surrounded by Waxahachie’s abundant amenities. Parks, recreation and athletic centers, museums, galleries, markets and a worldwide array of cuisines and unique shops and boutiques are just a few of Waxahachie’s offerings.

Secluded yet conveniently situated, new homes are just 30 miles south of downtown Dallas and a quick 50-minute drive to Fort Worth.

It’s no wonder that Waxahachie’s unique setting has been used as a backdrop for numerous films and television shows. And it’s no mystery why big-name stars and those seeking the best of Texas are drawn to the distinctive Lone Star city.
