Life in Lakewood: Great Community, Extraordinary Homes
March 8th, 2016 | by Michelle
Lakewood is the hottest market in Dallas, according to market expert and real estate appraiser D.W. Skelton.
“Demand is especially high from people relocating to the area because it offers great value and desirable schools,” Skelton said. “And the location couldn’t be better.”
Lakewood offers residents an active, outdoor lifestyle, filled with delicious restaurants, unique boutiques, rippling creek ways, jogging trails and an abundance of green space.
The historic Lakewood Theater, which shows classic films and hosts many contemporary musical and comedy events, the renowned Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, the historic Casa Linda Shopping Center and White Rock Lake all rest within this verdant neighborhood.
Lakewood is also home to Lakewood Country Club. Built in 1912, the 18-hole golf course overlooks a woodland of rolling greens. Single-family bungalows, cottages, Tudors and Spanish Colonials from the 1930s and 1940s dominate this area, offering families charming residences canopied by sprawling trees.
