"Affordable living with a lake view"

The Old Lake Highlands neighborhood is located in East Dallas, just east of White Rock Lake. Most of the homes in this neighborhood are over 80 years old but they have for the most part been lovingly maintained, and sprinkled among those are new additions to replace homes torn down. It's bordered on the west by White Rock Lake and Buckner Boulevard and to the north by the Northwest Highway.

The neighborhood is served by the Dallas Independent School District and there are several excellent private schools in the area. The Old Lake Highland's Neighborhood Association which was formed in the early 1990's gives the community a positive focus and a way for neighbors to get to know each other. Entertainment options are unlimited with White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum on the western edge of the neighborhood and Greenville Avenue with all of its dining and nightlife options just west of the area. There are nice family homes available in this neighborhood for a shade under $200,000, making this an affordable option for families moving in to the city.

The Old Lake Highlands neighborhood of east Dallas is an excellent choice for people looking to live life in the city at a slightly slower pace.
