I have a club ride of up to 50 people that leaves from that intersection every Sunday morning. Great central location. There has been a trend of McMansions replacing smaller single story homes.

Suspect the biggest delta for those with kids is need to opt for ~$50K/yr/kid pvt schools in PH, vs "free", excellent (easily best in TX, amongst top 2-3 in US) public schools in HP

Land is much cheaper in PH than HP; homes are often on more spacious lots in PH than in HP w/its townhouse-like puny lots

HP has a more family-oriented, quasi-urban "feel" than PH's estate country feel; HP Village is a quaint shopping village vs more modern suburban shopping

PH faces hassles of being in City of Dallas and its police, road surfaces, and city svcs (or lack thereof and sometimes need to pay for own pvt police) vs an elite, cordoned-off suburb like HP

Commute obviously varies based upon whether one's office is in Uptown vs Plano vs Irving

Many families in Preston Hollow only think they need private schools. This year's preliminary scores have been released. Preston Hollow, Pershing, Withers, Dealey, and Kramer all made exemplary.

Thank you all for writing and sharing with me! We filled out an application yesterday and are hoping to hear something soon. No worries with my kiddos. My oldest does an online charter school and my youngest has a private school in West Plano that is a 22 minute drive from that location. I certainly appreciate everyone's input. The house is a lovely modest ranch and we are thrilled at the aspect of finally being able to live in Dallas proper or at least we hope. I am 99% sure this will happen.

This is a very nice neighborhood. I live farther north across 635 but do all my shopping in the area because of the Whole Foods, bookstore, great public library, and post office. It's very affluent, but more in an old money kind of way. You'll see a lot of families but it seems a lot more established that outer suburbs like Plano and the like. I didn't read all the posts so I don't know if you mentioned where your job was, but this area is very centrally located.
