Park Cities Homes for Sale

Share

The Park Cities is composed of two separate municipalities and six square miles in size…

These cities-within-the-city offer a small and very affluent community within 10 minutes of downtown Dallas. Separate fire, police and schools are but a few of the unique features of these communities. Because of these amenities, many families seek out this area of Dallas to raise their children. The highly acclaimed Highland Park Independent School District is consistently ranked as one of the most highly respected in the country.

Drive through the quiet, plush streets and you will see kids of all ages outside enjoying large front lawns and numerous parks in this ideal community. Careful, thoughtful zoning and city planning make this area some of Dallas’ most coveted real estate.

Highland Park Village, the first retail shopping center in the United States, is a landmark feature of the area with its Mediterranean architecture designed by Fooshee & Check, and houses the city’s most exclusive boutiques. Snider Plaza opened in University Park in 1927. Nearby NorthPark Center, developed by well-known Dallasite Raymond D. Nasher, has remained on the cutting edge of the retail shopping experience since 1965.

The Park Cities is also home to the Southern Methodist University campus. From well-respected theatre and dance programs and the artistic treasures of the on-campus museum, to thought-provoking lecture series and university sporting events, SMU offers many activities to the community.

Noted Dallas architects, who designed many of the churches and public buildings, also designed some of the significant homes in the Park Cities. In the 1920s, Hal Thomason designed the eclectic period mansions, which still exist on Armstrong, Bordeaux and Lakeside, and Anton Korn left his mark with many of the classical homes along Beverly Drive and Turtle Creek Boulevard. Mark Lemmon, credited with Highland Park United Methodist Church, Highland Park Presbyterian Church and Perkins Chapel, was a champion of historic styles, and architects like Richard Drummond Davis and Robbie Fusch still build many of these grand homes today. For spare modern architecture, individuals have turned to Howard R. Meyer, Bud Oglesby, Lionel Morrison and Max Levy. Lots are going for increasingly higher prices as builders keep reinterpreting the styles and features of homes to meet the needs of today’s homeowner.

Nearby Areas:
Just north and northwest of the Park Cities are the neighborhoods that make up Bluffview, which include Devonshire, Briarwood and Greenway ParksDowntown Dallas is a short drive down the Tollway, and Oak Lawn, Turtle Creek and Uptown are just south along Preston Road. Love Field Airport is due west, and North Dallas/Preston Hollow is just on the other side of Northwest Highway.
