Dallas Lake Front Real Estate

Among the many real estate options that Dallas has to offer, lakefront homes form an important category. There are approximately 3-4 dozen lakes within a 100 mile radius of the greater Dallas metropolitan area. With a size of 22,745 acres, Lake Ray Hubbard is one of the largest lakes in the area, and runs through Dallas County.

Lakefront real estate consists of homes that face a lake or ones that have a water view. This type of real estate is sought after by people who enjoy water sports, boating, fishing, or would just like to live near a large mass of water. Some of these homes enable you to fish from your own dock, which adds to the fun. Most of the lakefront homes include boat slips or are by the harbor. Some of these have boat houses or boat slips that come with decks that are wide open.

Dallas has lakefront real estate featuring lake frontage or lake views. Some of these properties are also found close to the many small and large lakes that cover the Dallas area. The large lakes are found in the suburbs of Rockwall, Flower Mound, and Rowlett. The small lakes, some of which are man-made, are found in the suburban areas of McKinney, Frisco and Plano. Apart from these areas, lakefront real estate is also found in the Dallas city area, and in the suburbs of Arlington, Colleyville, and Southlake. Prices range from $100,000 for a lake front property in Rockwall or Rowlett to over a million dollars in parts of Dallas proper, or Plano.

Within the Dallas city area, two of the most popular lakes are While Rock Lake and Lake Highlands. The latter is situated close to the residential area of Casa Linda. Dallas lakefront real estate offers ample opportunities for families and communities to be near the facilities that a large city offers, yet enjoy the comforts of a lakefront or lake view home that permits boating and fishing.
