Lakewood Heights is a little bit of Lakewood, a little bit of Junius Heights and Belmont Addition, and a whole lot of Old East Dallas. Before the homeowners' association was founded in 1984, most people referred to the neighborhood as Lakewood West because it resembled Lakewood located on the other side of Abrams Road, and even had closer proximity to Lakewood Shopping Center. It was also built around the same time as Lakewood, primarily consisting of the same style original bungalows found in Junius Heights to the south of Lakewood Shopping Center and the bungalows and Tudor homes found in the Belmont Addition on the other side of Skillman Avenue.
Because of the larger lots found in Lakewood Heights that are larger than the standard 50x150 foot lots found in most of the Old East Dallas neighborhoods, this was one of the first neighborhoods to have larger new homes replace the original homes.
Eleven east/west streets comprise approximately 1,150 homes. Besides the large lots, the desirability of the neighborhood comes from the proximity of Lakewood Shopping Center and the best Old East Dallas neighborhood park—Tietze Park. This park has a new public swimming pool and is the location of many other recreational activities that take place there.
Lakewood Heights is also in the middle of Old East Dallas, so it shares a proximity to SMU, downtown Dallas, and White Rock Lake. These are all about 10 minutes away by car or bicycle.
The featured home on this site is a modern family home designed by noted architect Bentley Tibbs. Rather than an eclectic traditional design, this home is lined with windows to better relate to the outdoor gardens while still offering five bedrooms and lovely family spaces.
