I read on a thread some time ago someone said to avoid the Swan Lake area to live. Why is that? There are a few houses for sale in a subdivision that looks nice online. ( it might be gated, but I'm not sure about that.) It is pretty far North of 220 and I am wondering if it is safe there.

Swan Lake road covers a lot of miles. What is north of 220 is safe to my knowledge and has a good elementary school (Legacy). Airline HS district. Not sure about the middle school, tho'.

The area commonly referred to as Swan Lake is an older subdivision just off East Texas extending to Shed Road. It is being 5 laned and has lost many of the corner houses on the side streets which intersect SLR. It is not a particularly desirable area; mostly lower income. Go north of 220!

Yes,

Listen to hdwell.

Swan Lake is ok but when I lived in BC it was the neighborhood seemed to be declining. Houses were beginning to get run down. I thought some of them were neat.

There are some bi-levels in parts of Swan Lake which is unusual for that area. It reminded me of an older late 60's or early 70's Kansas City neighborhood.

I have seen some of those bi-level homes over there and in Bellaire as well. Often wondered if any of the occupants ever had flooding or dampness in those homes? I would think if so they would be hard to sell but the ones in Bellaire at least command an average price for that neighborhood (about 125 to 150K)
