Learn more about Northwood Hills
Located in the heart of north Dallas is a very special place known as Northwood Hills. This community proudly displays a love and respect for nature in the middle of an urban metropolis. The appreciation for natural beauty blends effortlessly with the roughly 1,200 homes in Northwood Hills, mostly single-family houses ranging in value between $400,000 and $2+ million. The neighborhood offers many attractive features for homebuyers looking to connect with nature but Northwood Hills is also ideally situated, close to all of the major arteries, an abundance of shopping and country clubs, T Bar M, a private tennis club, restaurants galore and most of the desirable private schools in the area.
Northwood Hills attracts buyers more interested in their environment, lot size and natural beauty than the improvement/house that is on the lot. Because that can be changed, the neighborhood boasts both new construction as well as homes with varying degrees of updates. Several parks, hundreds of ancient oak trees and a meandering creek give homeowners the impression of being miles away from civilization. Rare birds and other wildlife are a common sight, and the entire neighborhood teems with wildlife right outside almost every backdoor. Most of the lots are at least half an acre, and the houses are set fairly far back from the street, so that the large lawns give off a distinct park-like feeling.
Another great feature of Northwood Hills is the community’s unique location. Despite its rural atmosphere, Northwood Hills is situated right outside the LBJ Freeway, just 10-15 minutes’ drive to downtown Dallas and many of its attractions. Most of Northwood Hills is in the award-winning Richardson Independent School District attendance area. Numerous private schools are also conveniently accessible to students looking for specific educational needs.
