Neighborhoods of Far North Dallas

36 Braewood Place in Glen Abbey Neighborhood

Glen Abbey Neighborhood

Glen Abbey is one of the last neighborhoods of enormous homes over 10,000 square feet designed by prominent architects. Since 2010 homes over 10,00 square feet have sold for approximately $4,000,000, often half of what the home originally cost to build. For those wanting a very large 10 year old home, Glen Abbey is a good place to find one at an attractive price.

Bent Tree Neighborhood

Bent Tree was developed with the planning concept of the Cloisters of White Rock Lake and the look and the prestige of Highland Park. Between the two in size, Bent Tree was successfully developed as the most prestigious neighborhood in far North Dallas and the home of two very fine golf and county clubs, Bent Tree Country Club and Preston Trail Golf Club.

Northwood Hills Neighborhood

Inspired by the Park Cities, the rolling hills and branch of White Rock Creek on the west boundary, Northwood Hills became a development of gently curving and undulating streets following the tree lined topography.

Williamsburg Estates Neighborhood

Cited as one of the safest neighborhoods in Dallas, this very private Williamsburg Estates neighborhood has great access to major thoroughfares, but is almost off the map it is so hidden. The residents are known to be company founders, company owners, CEOs and very successful professionals.
