Real Estate Story
Jennifer Kilpatrick

Jennifer Kilpatrick and her son Jack

Single mom and attorney Jennifer Kilpatrick is a Dallas native and Ursuline Academy grad who moved away in 1992. After a divorce in 2016, she and her son moved back to North Texas, renting an apartment in The Village. She wanted time to find a new house in this competitive market, and focused her search to the area in which she grew up.

“I began searching for a house a few months ago, and wanted to buy a house in east Dallas, since I grew up in Lake Highlands and Jack goes to school at St. Thomas Aquinas,” she said. “I confined my home search to Lake Highlands, Little Forest Hills, Lochwood, and Ridgewood Park (and small, ill-defined neighborhoods around those places).”

We’ve followed her home-buying journey, from first searches to closing on a Lochwood cutie this month. It’s a great story!

lochwood meadows

Lochwood Meadows is one of three sub-neighborhoods in the lovely East Dallas neighborhood of Lochwood. This area near White Rock Lake is on a greenbelt, with lots of mature trees, wildlife, and a lush feel. Most of the homes here were built in the 1960s.

Our Thursday Three Hundred just hit the market in Lochwood Meadows, located at 12003 Brookmeadow Ln. near Northwest Highway and Jupiter Road. It is a short walk to Lochwood Park, a 12.3-acre green space with a playground, baseball field, basketball court, picnic tables, swimming pool, tennis court, and trails.

This house is updated and light-filled, with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, a study, and 1,978 square feet on one story, built in 1965. Let’s take a look!
