8566 San Pedro a

Sitting on almost half an acre in the upscale Forest Hills neighborhood, the house at 8566 San Pedro Pkwy. is on the east side of White Rock Lake.

For buyers looking for luxury in East Dallas, I’ve got a tale of two houses on the east and west sides of White Rock Lake.

Both are custom build houses, and both have the attention to detail and higher-end features you’d expect in such a property. Both are situated in established, coveted neighborhoods. And both are listed by Lee Lamont with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

“In both of these comparable properties, no expense was spared and each offers an enviable neighborhood near the lake and area amenities, like the Dallas Arboretum and shopping in Lakewood,” Lamont said.

First, there’s the home at 8566 San Pedro Pkwy., which sits on almost half an acre in Forest Hills near Garland Road and Lakeland Drive. It offers five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, two dining areas, and 5,400 square feet on two stories.

The other house, located at 6203 Vickery Blvd., near Richmond Avenue and Skillman Street, in one of East Dallas’ most coveted neighborhoods, Lakewood Heights. It’s just one block from the beloved Tietze Park and pool.

The Vickery home offers 4,422 square feet in the main house, with a detached guest quarters in back and another 450 square feet above the oversized garage. Sitting on an oversized corner lot, this home has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, two dining areas, and two stories, built in 2005.

Both are open this Sunday, April 23, from 1-3 p.m. Let’s get a sneak peek!

Lower Greenville CraftsmanBefore the construction of North Central Expressway in 1950, Greenville Avenue one of four major roads leading into Dallas, and was the main route to northern cities like Richardson, McKinney, and Plano. It used to be called “Richardson Pike” or “Richardson Road,” and was the main route into Dallas from the Texarkana.

The neighborhood of Lower Greenville runs adjacent to Greenville Avenue south of Mercedes Avenue and north of Belmont Avenue.
