Veranda Fine Homes and Renovations is very selective when it comes to the neighborhoods we build in. We take great pride in selecting each home site we build on and creating distinctive designs that add to the natural charm of the existing neighborhood. Our customers and their neighbors feel that this approach lends itself to a greater sense of community—one that protects the investment value of these unique locations. The neighborhoods listed below represent a sampling of the types of communities in which you will find Veranda Fine Homes.
Briarwood, Bluffview & Devonshire
Briarwood, Bluffview, and Devonshire are neighborhoods where original estate homes are being restored and new construction homes are being built. The real estate continues to gain in popularity and prestige as its setting remains unchanged and the new construction enhances rather than distracts from the tone of this neighborhood. Country lanes, wooded lots, rolling hills, white cliffs and scenic views are the hallmarks of the area. Though the area is small and properties do not often come up for sale, it is home to a number of city leaders as well as national political figures. The area offers privacy and has the feel of Eastern rural living.
Highland Park, Texas and University Park, Texas are both synonymous with prestige and opulence. These old fashioned, affluent neighborhoods provide desirable sites for extravagant new homes. Highland Park is famous for the quality of its school system, police and fire department, and civility of the community as a whole. Highland Park and University Park are charming cities nestled within the larger city of Dallas. The neighborhood is protected from the city around it yet is still conveniently located only two miles from downtown Dallas. Highland Park was laid out by Wilbur David Cook, the landscape architect who designed Beverly Hills, California.
The Lakewood area is noted for its easy access to White Rock Lake, many recreational opportunities, beautiful trees, historical charm, and eclectic restaurants and shops.
Preston Hollow consists of neighborhoods of country lanes reminiscent of New England that boast some of the most exceptional and desired homes in Dallas. Some of the historic homes were built by prominent architects in the early part of the 20th century and some of the largest Dallas mansions are just being completed in this exclusive neighborhood. Modern homes and mid-century modern homes designed by nationally recognized architects can also be found mixed in amongst the more traditional styles. In Preston you will find the largest collection of important Dallas estate homes with styles including Mediterranean, French, New England, Italian, Neoclassical, and English Tudor.
