"Stylish 1920's Tudor homes in one of the hottest nightlife areas in Dallas"

With many of the original 1920's Tudor style homes lovingly preserved, the M Street neighborhood is one of the most eclectic areas to live in the city of Dallas. Most of the original details of the homes such as stained glass windows, arches, and hardwood floors have been maintained and the property values of this region have been steadily gaining in the last few years as more permanent residents have moved in displacing some SMU college students who at one time rented houses here.

It's close to Southern Methodist University so it's ideal for parents with college-age kids and it's bordered to the east by Greenville Avenue, one of the hottest and hippest entertainment districts in all of Dallas. While Greenville Avenue adds to the appeal of this area, it is also a problem as parking is a premium on Greenville and traffic often spills over into the M Streets area and many people park in the M Streets area and walk to a club or restaurant, littering and making noise as they go. Despite the noise and litter from people outside the area, this is a still a great place to live with friendly neighbors who watch out for each other and a neighborhood association to keep the standards high.
Pros
  • close to many fine dining options
  • friendly neighborhood
  • close to the Greenville Avenue entertainment district
Cons
  • heavy traffic area
  • noise
  • some smog and air quality problems during the summer months
