"close to all of the excitement Dallas has to offer - with affordable homes"

The Dixon Branch neighborhood of Dallas, which is also know by many as Lochwood, is a relatively quiet area of families homes with a central park for children, joggers, and cyclists. It is one of the better real estate bargains for people with families looking to live in the White Rock Lake area with some homes selling for as low as $120,000 for a three bedroom home. Larger and more luxurious ranch style homes are also available in the area in the $300,000+ price range.

Being so close to White Rock Lake makes this area ideal for cyclists, sailors, joggers, fishermen, and anyone who enjoys people-watching. The Dallas Arboretum is a wonder place to wander among 66 acres of tranquil gardens collecting your thoughts as well as a great place to see a popular regional or touring act. This area is served by the Dallas independent School District, and there are also a number of private schools in the area. Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) buses and trains are very close to the area for those who choose to avoid the heavy traffic of the Dallas Metro area.

Dixon Branch is a great place to raise a family or simply kick back and enjoy life at a lower pace.
Pros
  • great recreation choices
  • friendly neighborhood
Cons
  • heavy traffic at times
  • rising crime rates over the past two decades
