"A classy neighborhood in the middle of the big city"

Located just north of Lake Highlands High School, the Royal Highlands neighborhood is an upper middle-class area with beautiful homes on spacious lots with manicured lawns. Expect to pay in the neighborhood of at least $600,000+ to move to this exclusive area. It's served by the Richardson Independent School District, one of the best districts as recognized by the state of Texas, so it's perfect for families looking for a quality public school education for their school-age children.

It's close to some of the best recreation and entertainment options the area has to offer. It's close to White Rock Lake where you can fish, jog, bike, or sail an afternoon away and next door to it is the Dallas Arboretum, 66 acres of tranquil gardens and it's also a venue for live music acts. It's also just north of Lake Highlands High School, making it ideal for parents who will soon have high school aged children. If you don't care for driving to work in the city, you can use Dallas Rapid Area Transit, an affordable alternative to driving, and since DART serves most of the Dallas area chances are they can get you to your job quickly and safely.
