Preston Hollow, which includes Old Preston Hollow, stretches from Northwest Highway to approximately Forest Lane and Midway Road to U.S. Highway 75.
Within those boundaries are beautiful neighborhoods with mature tree canopies arching over streets, shady parks tucked back within, and plenty of creature comforts — including shopping, fine dining, casual dining, and more.
With its easy proximity to the Dallas North Tollway, Preston Road, Northwest Highway, and U.S. 75, it’s no wonder that the large community of smaller neighborhoods is home to both the young couples embarking on their first home purchases and the likes of former presidents (George W. and Laura Bush), oil tycoons (Kelcy Warren), and entrepreneurial sports team owners (Mark Cuban).
Drive Strait Lane, where you can check out (from a distance) some of the largest estates in Dallas.
WHAT’S UP WITH THAT?
Find Rex Kare’s stained glass work, Beacon, at Dallas Fire Station 27, Preston Road and Northwest Highway. This abstract piece depicts fire and water.
We loved Preston Hollow’s central location and particularly the ability to hop on Central or the Tollway and be almost anywhere in the metroplex. We loved the wide streets and the bigger lots.Caroline Hundley
