North DallasDallas Neighborhoods
Affluence continues above Northwest Highway into the wealthiest neighborhoods in Dallas: Preston Hollow, which consists of Old Preston Hollow and 12 other small designations. Strait Lane in particular is a multi-million dollar address of influencers. These estate-filled neighborhoods with shade-covered hills, private lakes, streams and expansive grounds house dignitaries such as George W. Bush and Ross Perot, notable CEOs like Mark Cuban and T. Boone Pickens, and sports icons like Dirk Nowitzki and Roger Staubach. Famous architects like Frank Lloyd Wright designed a majority of the older mansions. But new, custom estates are the current trend. Predominately a family-centric community, many of the children get their education at the prestigious private school corridor within the area.
As you travel north, the Preston Forest neighborhoods scale into ranch homes and prices drop slightly to more modest sums. Quick entry onto both the Dallas North Tollway and Highway 75 gives easy access to the rest of the city. High-end shopping and dining is found at Preston Center and the popular NorthPark Center.
