"A friendly neighborhood hidden away in Northeast Dallas"

Located just south of Richland College, the Country Forest/Jackson Meadow neighborhood is part of the Lake Highlands section of Dallas and it features homes custom-built in the 1970's amid beautiful mature groves of trees. A tight-knit homeowner's association works with all residents to maintain the neighborhood's beauty and keep everything clean. There are affordable family homes in this area for as little as $200,000, making this a great place to raise children.

Country Forest/Jackson Meadow is served by the Richardson Independent School District, one of the best school districts in the entire state of Texas and there are also excellent private schools in the area. The neighbors here are friendly and if you lack landscaping skills, you may have to hire a professional to keep your yard up the standards of the neighborhood. It's close to Interstate 635, the loop around Dallas that can take you anywhere you want to go. It's also close to the Greenville Avenue entertainment district, the best Dallas has to offer in fine dining and vibrant nightspots. Sample some great local fare without ever leaving the neighborhood at Christie's Restaurant, which for years has been a favorite with the locals and one of Dallas' best kept secrets.
