Dallas, home to the third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies in the entire country, is Texas’ third most populated city. How populated? Well, in 2014 it was estimated that more than 1.25 million people live within the city’s borders. For many, it is a place of employment or a weekend destination filled with museums, zoos, music, and shopping. But for others, Dallas is simply…home. Now, you would think that a city like Dallas would be a noisy, bustling environment to raise a family, but that’s not the case at all. Dallas actually has more than 100 neighborhoods and subdivisions, some of which are so separated from the exciting nightlife of the city that you almost forget you are in the “Big D”. One of these neighborhoods is the picturesque community of Bluffview.
Bluffview is an upscale neighborhood in north Dallas that is the perfect place for those seeking a rural setting with amazing architecture and scenic views. Whether you and your spouse are empty-nesters or just starting a family, you’ll love the peace and quiet of this serene neighborhood.
Bluffview is revered by many for its hilly terrain, in fact the area was named after the famous 50-ft. drop down to a branch of Bachman Creek, a tributary of the Trinity River. The Drop is one of many overlooks and cliffs in the area praised by both residents and visitors alike. One of the community’s favorite locations is Bachman Lake, where you can enjoy fishing or walking/jogging/biking around its three-mile waterfront. Another hotspot for Bluffview residents is the nearby shopping district, Inwood Village. At the Village, shoppers peruse through locally-owned businesses, specialty shops, and major retail stores including: Neiman Marcus, the Gap, and Wisteria. After shopping, you can get a bite to eat at one of the many eateries or catch an independent movie at the Inwood Theater, locally adored for its Midnight Movie showings of all your favorite cult classics.
Homes and properties in Bluffview are unique and vary in price. The average priced home in the community is around $650,000 and the average household income is around $150,000. You can find a 2-bed/2-bath comfortable cottage for around $480,000 or a secluded 4-bed/4-bath traditional home for $1,225,000. You can even find a large, custom estate for $12-15 million – it really all depends on what you’re looking for.
