The name “Lake Highlands” probably does not conjure up fantasies of a gay enclave, but the East Dallas neighborhood (roughly northeast of White Rock Lake around Northwest Highway) has been a perfect fit for the couple. Tapani bought the house in 2009, having moved away from the Lakewood area. That was before he and Sassano met; within a year or so, the two moved in together, and have lived a suburban dream since.
“I like that Lake Highlands is not as busy as Lakewood — the traffic, the noise, etc. — yet it is just as close to White Rock Lake and the Arboretum,” Tapani, an account manager in the television industry, says. “Your real estate investment will go much further here, rather than in a lot of neighborhoods that have historically appealed to LGBT buyers.”
