Far East Dallas

A section of neighborhoods closest to the southern tip of White Rock Lake features tree-filled yards and one-story ranch houses from the ’60s that make great starter homes. Grouped together as White Rock Hills, this area includes Claremont, Casa Linda Forest, and Hillridge. Casa View, built in the post-war building boom, has gained attention as a bargain opportunity.

The Creative Arts Center, a neighborhood gem, teaches visual arts classes. Eastfield College offers two-year degrees and continuing education. Private Dallas Athletic Club offers golf and tennis.
