Welcome to the M-Streets
Dallas may be a modern city, but head to the M-Streets and you'll find a welcome, unexpected experience—an urban village of cottages and bungalows, walkable streets, and a concerted effort to keep it all intact.
The most distinguishable feature of M-Street neighborhoods is the homes. Most date back to the 1920s, and many possess distinctive Tudor-style facades and endless charm. Intricate stone and brickwork and stained glass windows are not uncommon. Strict guidelines for renovation and construction aim to maintain the architectural heritage.
What to Love
- Original, Tudor style cottage homes that date as far back as the 1920s
- Central location to many of Dallas' top business and entertainment districts
- Quiet, tree-lined streets and sidewalks and well-manicured lawns
People & Lifestyle
The M-Streets, so named for the bevy of streets that start with M, is something of an urban bedroom community—tucked in between the shopping mecca of Knox-Henderson and the lively Lower Greenville entertainment district.
And it's that location, walking distance to some of Dallas' best social experiences without being in the middle of the action, that has drawn so many young professionals and families to the area.
Dining, Shopping & Entertainment
Although most of the activity occurs a few blocks to the east and a few to the west (and just north at Mockingbird Station), the M-Streets do have a few dining hotspots to call their own.
is a classic Italian eatery that features live jazz music. The Corner Market
is a quaint little store making some of Dallas' best sandwiches and selling unique items and floral arrangements. It also has a neat rooftop garden.
Things to Do
Keeping in line with its reputation as a family-orientated community, 14-acre Glencoe Park
provides a central gathering venue for M-Street residents. Among the amenities, the 75-year-old park includes a playground, picnic tables, trails, rugby and softball fields, and tennis courts.
A ten-minute walk from Glencoe is the historic, art-deco-inspired Granada Theater
. The converted 1940s era movie theater has been a vital member of the Dallas music scene since 2004. Locals praise it as the best live music venue in the city.
