Renter's guide to Lake Highlands, TX

This popular area, located east of the North Central Expressway and to the north of the Northwest Highway, caters to those seeking proximity to the city while still pursuing a more laid-back lifestyle with plenty of prospects for rest and relaxation.

One of the more notable features of Lake Highlands is its locale with rolling hills and extensive greenery – a selling point that makes it perfect for those who want to enjoy some of the Dallas area’s most attractive landscapes without losing touch with the bustling city lifestyle. Here you’ll find plenty of mature trees with great shade, including pecans and oaks that have grown up since they were planted by early residents.

History

Lake Highlands got its start in the 1950s, during which time the original part of the neighborhood was built up as a traditional suburb. This area comprised the land around Northwest Highway and Walnut Hill, as well as around Ferndale and Plano roads. Further development of Lake Highlands occurred during the 1970s and 1980s, and since then it has continued to develop, with a strong family-friendly focus due in so small part to the excellent schools in the area. While the L Streets make up the original neighborhoods of Lake Highlands, there are now numerous others, such as Highland Meadows, Moss Farm, Northwood Heights, and Town Creek.

Tips for renting in Lake Highlands, Dallas, TX

Lake Highlands features a good mixture of single-family homes and apartments, though both tend to be on the older side compared to some of the newer suburbs further north of the city.

However, while the majority of the Lake Highlands area is made up of older dwellings, there are some newer developments sprouting up along the outskirts of the neighborhood. Here, you can find larger homes for sale, often in private, gated communities. Development has also led to the growth of new apartment complexes, for those seeking something a little more upscale than what mainstream Lake Highlands has to offer.
