Neighborhoods: Forest Hills

Hi everyone!

We are so excited about our brand new listing in the beautiful Forest Hills neighborhood of Dallas. Maybe you’re new in town (or soon-to-be) or perhaps you live in Dallas but don’t know much about Forest Hills. We’re here to highlight our favorite things about Forest Hills—and show you the new home you can take a virtual tour through our YouTube video! In case you’re wondering…this home is move-in ready!


The Forest Hills neighborhood is an oasis among the hustle and bustle of Dallas. Potential buyers can expect to find large, sprawling trees and a sense of serenity as they drive through one of Dallas’s best neighborhoods. Located within 5 minutes of White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum, residents readily enjoy the outdoors by cycling, running, enjoying a picnic lakeside and much more. Forest Hills has a strong sense of community with regular meetings and email blasts and keeping their neighbors informed on fun events in the area. There are 3 public schools in the Forest Hills area as well as numerous private schools not too far away. Residents are also ten minutes from the Dallas Arts District where they can enjoy theater, music, art and fine dining.
