Must-See Dallas Property — A California Dream in Lakewood

Inside the Breezy New Build

BY // 07.27.22

For two years now, there’s been plenty of talk of Californians moving to Dallas. However, much of that discussion has been focused on the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, or (in the case of this strangely specific New York Post article) Hall Arts Plaza. One lush Dallas neighborhood you don’t often hear conflated with Californians is Lakewood. Which is surprising! Lakewood has great schools (particularly Lakewood Elementary), the prestige of being considered an upscale Dallas neighborhood (generally the most politically liberal of the bunch), and an abundance of natural beauty. It all seems uniquely suited to lure in West Coast transplants.

And for a little further convincing, there’s now the perfect home. Situated on a prime, creekside lot by beloved Lakewood Park, 3820 Frontier Lane was designed and constructed with a West Coast sensibility, from the lightness of its materials (white oak and imported natural stones) to the leafy views from nearly every vantage point. Even the home’s staging, with verdant house plants, rattan baskets, and moments that seem inspired by the chicest moments in a CB2 showroom, is a breezy California dream.

White oak and imported natural stones keep the aesthetic light across the Lakewood home.

Not that California owns the rights to airy interior design, but if they do keep coming (armed and ready for bidding battle) as Dallas realtors say, it will be interesting to see the aesthetic influence on brand new builds across the city. Of course, when they look this good, we’re certainly not complaining.

3820 Frontier Lane is listed with Jacob Moss with Compass Real Estate. The 4,000-square-foot new build is listed for a little over $2 million with four bedrooms, four and one-half bathrooms, and an enviable backyard oasis.
