Bluffview is a prestigious neighborhood valued for its rolling hills, prime location and distinct terrain features, many of which were formed from the streams and tributaries of Bachman Creek. The area inherited its name for a famous point that boasts a 50-ft. drop down to a tributary of Bachman Creek, making the views from this overlook appreciated by visitors and residents alike. The neighborhood was originally developed as Bluff View Estates by developer John P. Stevens, also responsible for Stevens Park in Oak Cliff. In 1924, he bought a 215 acresdairy farm along Bachman Creek and developed the land into 1 acre lots. Dallas took possession of the area in 1943. The many other cliffs overlooking Bachman Branch and its tributaries, as well as the gently rolling hills, towering trees and traversing creeks has made this one of the most sought-after and exclusive neighborhoods in Dallas.
Bluffview’s rolling hills and distinctive Architecture make it one of Dallas’s premier neighborhoods. Original estate homes are being restored and new contemporary homes are being built which enhance the overall ambience of the area.
