We love East Dallas and Lochwood in particular, one of the most lush, treed neighborhoods. The connection to nature is a big deal here, with greenbelts, creek, park, and close proximity to White Rock Lake.
For today’s Splurge vs Steal, we’ve headed there to look at two Lochwood houses for sale. As it turns out, both have seen recent reductions in asking price. Which one is your favorite?
