"One of the best neighborhoods in Lake Highlands"

A cozy neighborhood on the western shores of White Rock Lake, the Cloisters is part of the Lake Highlands section of Dallas. It is a mix of stately homes along the lake and more affordable options further from the shore. It has an active homeowner's association that helps to preserve the look and feel of this unique neighborhood.

There are bike and hike trails that lead directly from the neighborhood to the lake, so this is an ideal area for fitness lovers. The area is served by the Richardson Independent School District, which is rated by the state of Texas as one of the best. It's simple to commute to any part of the city thanks to Dallas Area Rapid Transit. It's also close to the Dallas Arboretum, 66 acres of tranquil gardens to help you forget the fact you live in a big city. Just to the east of the Cloisters is the Greenville Avenue entertainment district, which has some of the hottest nightlife and best fine dining in all of Dallas.

The Cloisters neighborhood in Lake Highlands is the ideal choice for a professional looking for a great place to live close to work or a family wanting a quality public school education for their children.
