The M-Streets: Dallas’ Most Wanted


Desco Fine Homes builds new custom homes and remodels homes in the M-Streets area of Dallas in zip codes 75201, 75204, 75205, 75206, 75214.

Tree-lined walkways, manicured lawns, and friendly neighbors are some of the reasons the M-Streets neighborhood of Dallas is such a popular location for home buyers and custom home builders. The M-Streets, officially known as Greenland Hills, got its nickname because many of the street names start with the letter M: Monticello, McCommas, Merimac, Morningside and Mercedes. The neighborhood is a good mix of old and new single-family homes. Dating back to the 1920s, house building centered on mostly Tudor, Craftsman, and Colonial style homes for the neighborhood.

While it has the look of an upper class suburb, the neighborhood is actually in East Dallas near the Central Business District, which makes it an ideal location for professionals. The M-Streets are also conveniently located within a great school system, shares a piece of White Rock Lake, and is settled between two of the city’s most popular entertainment districts; Greenville Avenue and Uptown. Crime is lower in the M-Streets than in many other areas of Dallas, due, in part, to a proactive Crimewatch program funded by the residents’ donations.

M Streets maintains its historic feel because many of the original houses are still standing, some with original details such as hardwood floors and framing, fixtures, and stained glass windows. While builders of new homes use modern amenities and style, efforts are made to maintain the neighborhood’s historic charm. Finding newly built homes for sale are scarce, the M-Streets properties are coveted for their perfect blend of historic and modern charm. Finding this balance can be extremely challenging, but Desco Fine Homes specializes in custom build homes and home remodeling and renovation.
