Bluffview is an upscale neighborhood in north Dallas, Texas (USA). It is bounded by Lover's Lane on the south, Midway Road on the west, Northwest Highway (Loop 12) on the north, and Inwood Road and the Devonshire neighborhood on the east.
Bluffview is so named for its relatively hilly topography—it lies along cliffs overlooking Bachman Branch and its tributaries. Some of the cliffs the neighborhood is built on rise 50 feet (15 m) over the water below.
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 acres (0.9 km²) dairy farm along Bachman Creek and developed the land into 1 acre (4,046.9 m²) lots. The area was annexed by Dallas in 1943.
The neighborhood is served by the Dallas Independent School District. Children in the neighborhood attend Sudie L. Williams Elementary School (located within the neighborhood), Benjamin Franklin Middle School, and Hillcrest High School.
Nearby Holy Trinity Catholic School has served the neighborhood since 1914 and is located at the corner of Oak Lawn Avenue and Gilbert Avenue. Providing early education for three year olds through eighth grade, Holy Trinity is the oldest continually operating Catholic school in North Texas.
