Located south of East Whitestone Boulevard, just east of West Parmer Lane, Sweet Farms is a small neighborhood of roughly 30 acreage home sites. Properties vary from two to over six acres in size. Many residents keep horses on their property and include corals and barns on the homestead. The southern edge of this community lies along Brushy Creek. These properties were developed from the 1970s to early 2000s, and the houses reflect the variety of styles of architecture popular over these decades. A number of the homesites feature white picket ranch-style or native limestone fencing, contributing to the Texas ranch feel of the community. If you are looking for a property that offers ranch-style living with convenient access to city amenities, Sweet Farms might be calling you home.
There is one main street running through the neighborhood, Raley Road. The boundaries of Sweet Farms are FM 1431/East Whitestone Boulevard to the north, and Brushy Creek to the south, County Road 178 to the west, and Anderson Crossing to the east. It lies in the 78613 zip code.
