Over the years, the neighborhoods north of Northwest Highway have become known as Preston Hollow. It’s the area of the city known for grand estate homes, large shade trees and winding roads. Dallas’ finest architects have left – and continue to leave – their mark here with sprawling ranch houses, elegant chateaus, and Texas regionalist designs. The North Dallas Tollway intersects the area from Midway road to the west, Central Expressway to the east and Forest Lane to the north, and provides easy access to downtown as well as far north Dallas.
Many families are drawn here because of nearby elite private schools, including Hockaday, St. Mark’s, Episcopal School of Dallas, Greenhill, Jesuit, and Ursuline. Retail anchors such as NorthPark Center, Preston Center, Preston Royal Village, and The Galleria offer numerous shopping, dining and entertainment options. There are also several country clubs in the area.
