The Peninsula / Old Lake Highlands / Eastwood


This lovely East Dallas neighborhood was originally established in the 1920s with small lakeside vacation cottages, intended to be used as a quick retreat from the city of Dallas.  Today, the Peninsula lies only 10 minutes from downtown, yet retains its retreat type qualities.  Quiet and secluded, the Peninsula is nestled on the shores of White Rock Lake, with many homes offering views of the lake and Downtown Dallas.  Today the Peninsula has original cottages, as well as some Mediterranean style and newer mid-century modern homes.

Old Lake Highlands

Located on the Eastern Shore of White Rock Lake, Old Lake Highlands was founded in 1946.  Although the area has been known by various names throughout the years, the current iteration of Old Lake Highlands provides easy access to the shopping of Casa Linda and Northpark Mall, and is only 10 miles from Downtown Dallas.  Surrounded by greenbelt space, Old Lake Highlands mainly boasts affordable mid-century ranch style homes, perfect for families of all sizes.


Eastwood is a newer community of 1950s and 1960s ranch and two story houses.  A close knit community, the Eastwood HOA has an active crime watch program, and puts on neighborhood events throughout the year.  Just minutes from White Rock Lake, shopping and dining in Casa Linda and Lakewood, Eastwood offers a quiet neighborhood lifestyle with amenities close at hand.
