Tucked back between Hillcrest Road and Preston Road, Northwood Hills is a quiet, established neighborhood with treed lots and easy access to Interstate 635. In fact, Realtor Kylah Boyd with Texas Urban Living Realty calls the neighborhood a hidden gem.

She’s gotten to know it pretty well since she listed this beautifully remodeled traditional located at 6502 Covecreek Place last month.

“A lot of the people that attended the open houses said they weren’t even aware that neighborhood even existed,” she said. “The neighborhood really is kind of a hidden gem.”

“The neighborhood is older, established, with tree-lined drives,” she continued. “Most of the neighbors are older. Great school districts and also in the territory for private Jesuit Charter Schools. The turnover rate is very minimal, people buy and stay.”

“It’s Dallas, but the Richardson school district and the neighborhood is quaint, quiet, established and tree-lined, but 20 minutes in any direction from all of the fun stuff,” Boyd said.

Its proximity to the Northwood Club and prime golfing is also a motivator, as is how close it is to both work and play.

“It’s centrally located because you can hop on the freeway and be in Downtown Dallas in 20 minutes, and has over 165 restaurants within a five-mile radius,” Boyd said. (more…)
