Thanks for the above post
Both of those are Dallas proper in my mind, although technically UP/HP are "enclaves". $600k is about the bare minimum for 3000sf in a nice part of Dallas ($200/sf). The same size home in HP/UP is going to run you $1.2M-ish.

Calling the Park Cities Dallas proper is absurd.

You'll have other options for very nice homes under $1M. Places like Plano, Las Colinas in Irving, Southlake, Coppell.

"Dallas" or DFW has 26 cities that make up the Metroplex area. People just use the term Dallas to mean the whole Metro unless you are really moving to Ft Worth.

Dallas proper = inside 635 loop, IMO. The Park Cities real estate market mirrors PH or Lakewood closer than it mirrors any of the suburbs.

HP is a proper town for all purposes, not a part of Dallas. Proper or improper and market here is quite different from rest of the Dallas including Preston Hollow or Lakewood. Anyways, prices are higher and public schools are amazing. I don't know a single family who would send their kids to Dallas ISD if they can help it, doesn't matter if school is in Lakewood or Preston Hollow. Overwhelming percentage of HP kids attend public schools even if private school is easily affordable.
