East Dallas and Lakewood, east of Central Expressway, both have a personality all their own. They have a tradition of being more laid back than hard-driving North Dallas. It's always been considered a little off the beaten track.
East of Lakewood is White Rock Lake Park, one of Dallas’s finest recreational resources. A favorite spot for cyclists, sailors, runners and walkers, it’s a great place to be when the morning sun rises.
Dallas, along with nearby Fort Worth and their dozens of suburbs, form a vast metropolis, the Metroplex, that is home to over six million residents. With the area’s explosive growth, developers have pushed the city out in all directions with new subdivisions and have taken what once were sleepy villages and made them bustling suburban towns. Richardson, Plano, Frisco, and Allen north of Dallas are now very popular options for buyers relocating into the city.
Many informed observers of the Dallas real estate scene believe that North Oak Cliff is “the next big thing.” For many years it has been thought of as a sleeping giant. Located on the south and west sides of the Trinity River, Oak Cliff was originally its own city and was incorporated into Dallas over 100 years ago. Unlike most of the flat topography of North Dallas, Oak Cliff is hilly; it’s actually on the northern end of the Texas Hill Country escarpment.
These chic neighborhoods extend north of downtown to Highland Park. With such good proximity to the best that Dallas has to offer, these districts have boomed since the mid-90s. Uptown is the district closest to downtown. Encompassing Victory Park, the State-Thomas Historic District and the West Village shopping area, The W Hotel and The Ritz, it is certainly Dallas's most urbane neighborhood.
Collectively Highland Park and University Park are known as the Park Cities. University Park has a much larger land mass than Highland Park and has almost three times the population. There are also a number of parks in the town.
University Park has seen an amazing number of new homes constructed in the past decade. As the neighborhood has become more and more desirable, there has been a tremendous demand for new family homes averaging around 5,000 square feet.
Preston Hollow and its adjacent neighborhoods are known for their large and leafy lots. Acre and half-acre properties are the norm. Located north of the Park Cities and extending out toward LBJ Freeway, many of these neighborhoods were developed after World War II. Most of the original homes were ranch style. As is often the case in a desirable locale, there has been much rebuilding in the past decade. Large new estate type properties now abound.
