Devonshire

Our Splurge: 5630 Stanford Avenue, Dallas listed by Sam Sawyer of Compass for $1.649 million.

Dreaming of Devonshire? Yeah, us too. Tucked away in a lush little corner of North Dallas, Devonshire draws buyers who want to shop and dine on Lovers Lane, hit the Arts District downtown, or take a quick drive over to Preston Center for a bite to eat with friends.

Bordered by Lovers Lane, Northwest Highway, Inwood Road, and the Dallas North Tollway, many of the streets in Devonshire share the same names with those you’ll find in University Park. Think Stanford Avenue, Caruth Boulevard, West Amherst, and Greenbrier Drive. These tree-lined streets are filled with block after block of charming cottages, fabulous remodels, and newly built custom homes that will have you at hello.

This week, we found two exceptional offerings on two of Devonshire’s most iconic streets, each with a prime location and stunning interiors, but with price points that are miles apart. One look at these beauties and we think you’ll agree, there’s a lot to love about Devonshire.
