I’m becoming more and more convinced that Lake Highlands is the best place to live in Dallas. One of the larger neighborhoods in East Dallas, Lake Highlands offers natural beauty, good schools, great shopping, and short commute times. It’s had its own renaissance in the past decade, with Lake Highlands Town Center getting closer to completion and more businesses investing in this arboreal enclave.
However, as the tide of Lake Highlands has risen, so have property values for single-family homes in the area. Finding a home in Lake Highlands in the $200,000 range is hard enough, but finding something cheaper than that? Almost impossible.
However, there are still plenty of great condos in Lake Highlands that offer amenities, location, and more. Here’s one, in particular, that shines:
Located at 7340 Skillman Street, Unit No. 603 is a tidy one-bedroom, one-bath unit with a private yard. With 713 square feet on one level, it’s an easy-to-love floor plan that is perfect for pet owners. What makes this home an exceptional value is the location, which is just north of Walnut Hill and right next to the Jackson Branch of White Rock Creek. A block behind the condominium complex is the Lake Highlands North Recreation Center. You’re a short drive from 635, a jaunt from North Central Expressway, and the lake is just minutes away.
As the listing notes, the condominium complex has a great little pool and spa, which is perfect for the hot summer ahead. See? You can find something in your budget in Lake Highlands!
