When it comes to life on this side of the lake, there are few neighborhoods in East Dallas that still retain much of their character like Lochwood. Located on the north east side of White Rock Lake, hugging the borders to Old Lake Highlands and the L Streets, this neighborhood is delightfully hilly, with long stretches of greenbelts that curve around creeks, huge parks, and great neighbors. And it’s no wonder that, with the still bordering on affordable real estate in this neighborhood, Millennials have been searching for the right place to claim their first home.

We’ve seen our share of flips in Lochwood, one of the few remaining somewhat affordable neighborhoods inside the loop, and though we’ve easily fallen in love with them, there’s something to be said about knowing when to stop “updating.” Need an example? Check out this cute Lochwood ranch listed by Lauri Ann Hanson and Aimee Schreiner with Dwell Partners Realty at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.

“Located in one of East Dallas’ best ‘under the radar’ neighborhoods, Lochwood, this three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath, recently remodeled home is a perfect starter home,” Schreiner said. “It’s within walking distance to Lochwood Park and close proximity to White Rock Lake, so you can enjoy all that East Dallas has to offer right at your fingertips.”

If you’re looking for an East Dallas neighborhood that sits at the intersection of urban and outdoorsy, Lochwood is your ticket. Houses here fly on and off the market for a reason: people love the neighborhood! 

Lochwood is situated a few miles east of White Rock Lake, about a 15-minute drive from downtown and a hop, skip, and jump to LBJ Freeway. So why is the area so beloved? Think lush greenbelts, arching shade trees, a variety of wildlife, wooded areas, hiking trails, and creeks. And don’t forget the 12.3-acre neighborhood park with two tennis courts, a basketball court, picnic tables, baseball diamond, trails, swimming pool, and a new playground. There’s also proximity to the lake, Dallas Arboretum, and a host of restaurants and bars. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 11359 Gatewood Pl. sits near East Northwest Highway and Jupiter Road on a 0.33-acre cul-de-sac creek lot with the backyard overlooking a verdurous greenbelt. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and 1,657 square feet on one story, built in 1960. Let’s take a look!

With mature trees, rolling topography, proximity to White Rock Lake, and tons of charming homes, Lochwood is getting plenty of attention from buyers. Of course, when there’s a lot of interest in a neighborhood, prices tend to go up, so we’re not surprised to see this ranch on Rogue Way priced in the $400,000 range. Truly, we have been wondering when the rest of Dallas was going to catch on to this great little enclave of 1960s architecture. 

But this little home, while it’s unassuming from the curb, packs quite the punch inside. With a designer kitchen, open spaces, and tons of light, you’re sure to fall in love with this hip-pocket listing from Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Scott Kaserman at 11718 Rogue Way.

It went live very early this morning, and of course, our eagle-eyed staff spotted it because we never sleep. At only $330,000 you need to call Texas Urban Living Realty agent Justin Bernil as you read this post because it will not last the day in our opinion.

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!

Full name: Jennifer Kilpatrick

Occupation: Attorney

Location: East Dallas

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!

If you’ve driven down Easton Road toward Lake Highlands Drive, no doubt you’ve likely see this home before. It commands a very visible corner in Lochwood, perched upon a hill. Its square build and curved second-story balcony are distinctive and offer views of the nearby neighborhood from its vantage.

And now it’s about to be back on the market with an agent that knows this area better than almost anyone: David Collier of David Griffin & Company Realtors. And we’re happy to feature it as this week’s High Caliber Home sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

Built by Rick Jackson in 1959 and nestled on an acre of land, he found the home the first day it was on the market.
