"One of Dallas' largest historic neighborhoods"

One of the very oldest and largest historical districts in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas, Texas, Winnetka Heights features early 20th Century wood frame one and two-story family homes. The area fell into disrepair and was neglected up until the 1980's when several entrepreneurs began restoring the neighborhood as more people moving to Dallas sparked much more interest in urban living. Today it is a neighborhood of finely crafted single family homes with mature trees that has the look and feel of an early 20th Century neighborhood.

This is also one of the best places in Dallas for affordable housing. Attractive and modest homes are available here for as low as $100,000, and there are more upscale options available. The area is served by Dallas Area Rapid Transit so it's easy and cheap to commute to any part of the city. Nearby Stephen's Park Golf Course has 18 challenging holes for you to check out and there are several great dining options within minutes of the neighborhood. Winnetka Heights is served by the Dallas Independent School District, which is home to several of the very best magnet schools in the nation.

Winnetka Heights is an excellent choice for the busy professional seeking a home close to their place of employment or couples looking for a place to raise a family.
