Lakewood is popular with families and young professionals – and that’s not surprising. Bordered on one side by the western shore of White Rock Lake, Lakewood is bounded by Mockingbird on the north and Gaston-Country Club to the south, and the area is only a short distance from downtown Dallas – yet has maintained its small town charm. Many of the homes in this old-fashioned neighborhood were built from the 1900s to the 1950s, and there are many historic and conservation Districts within Lakewood.
There are also a wide variety of housing options here, from two-bedroom starter homes and quaint cottages to large mansions on sprawling acreage, plus duplexes, fourplexes and apartments. A number of architectural styles are reflected here, too, including Craftsman, Prairie-Four Squares, Tudors, Spanish, Mediterranean Eclectic and Early Ranch.
