North Dallas

Home / North Dallas

Above Northwest Highway is one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Dallas: Preston Hollow. These estate-filled neighborhoods with shade-covered hills, private lakes, streams, and expansive grounds house dignitaries and CEOs such as George W. Bush and Mark Cuban, and sports icons like Dirk Nowitzki and Roger Staubach.

Many of the older mansions are designed by famous architects like Frank Lloyd Wright. But new, custom estates are the current trend. As you travel north, the Preston Forest neighborhoods scale into ranch homes and prices drop slightly to more modest sums. High-end shopping and dining are found at Preston Center and the popular NorthPark Center.
