Bucolic Highland Park

There are many reasons to love Highland Park. The pragmatic reasons include great schools, police and fire departments, safety, and beautiful homes with economic appreciation. Maybe the best reason to love Highland Park is the emotional satisfaction of living in a bucolic township just a couple of miles from downtown Dallas and the Arts District. My favorite Highland Park residential site has become the one at 3925 Potomac Avenue in the Mount Vernon neighborhood. This street ends at Turtle Creek, which eliminates traffic. Rush hour in front of the home might mean that one or two housekeepers in the afternoon are leaving for the day. While photographing the architecturally significant home architect Hal Thomson designed at 3925 Potomac, I found myself in the middle of the street for over an hour without a single car going by. Highland Park is filled with beautiful parks and homes with acreage that contribute to the bucolic atmosphere of Highland Park. We sometimes forget how nice it is to have Dallas’ oldest country club and golf course in the middle of Highland Park just around the corner from Highland Park Village. Arriving at the home at 3925 Potomac, one is greeted by a backdrop of Turtle Creek, pictured here, lined with layers of large and ornamental trees that allow a filtered view of expansive green of the golf course behind it. This view continues from the front yard, dining room and upstairs bedroom. Highland Park is one of the few locations that offers so many city amenities and residential sites totally embraced by nature. *Bucolic Highland Park
