"Upscale living at a slower pace in the big city"

An upscale neighborhood close to Downtown Dallas, Lakewood Heights has a number of older stately homes and newer ones that combine to create a friendly, up-beat neighborhood of families with children and retirees. Most of the homes here sell in the $700,00+ price range and it is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Dallas. It is located due west of the Lakewood neighborhood and it has much offer in recreation, fine dining, and nightlife.

It is just west of White Rock Lake, one of the best urban oasis spots in all of Dallas. It has a number of hiking trails and bike paths and is great for people watching and enjoying the splendor of sailboats gliding across calm waters. It is served by the Dallas Independent School District and there are several private schools in the area such as Holy Trinity Catholic School and Zion Lutheran School. For the most part, this is a tight-knit neighborhood where neighbors look out for each other and there's even a community paper for residents, the Advocate Magazine which has been covering happenings in the area since 1991.

Come try life at a slower pace while enjoying all the big city amenities here in Lakewood Heights.
