Volk Estates, St. Andrews Drive and the Finest Neighborhoods
Architecturally and Historically Significant Homes in University Park & Volk Estates
The unifying theme of University Park is the excellent Highland Park Independent School District schools. Coupled with University Park’s reputation for safety, parks and tree lined streets, families with young children flock to University Park. Often the mortgage on a $1 million or $2 million home is less than the tuition for three children at the private schools. But there is more to University Park than just the extra value the good schools bring. The success of SMU, founded in 1911, prompted the incorporation of University Park, founded in 1924. A great relationship has continued for over 100 years of professors finding homes close by and University Park residents taking advantage of the extraordinary resources, lectures, museums and performances Southern Methodist University offers.

University Park Neighborhood - Continued
In the heart of University Park is Volk Estates. Volk Estates has large estate lots, extraordinary architecture, and homeowners who are world leaders. Throughout University Park you will find lovely streets like St. Andrews, with a flowing creek that runs through front yards or the Dallas Country Club golf course sharing a boundary.
University Park has both affordable homes for professionals and extraordinary architect designed homes with a price reflecting the acreage of spacious lots, the architect and quality of the home and site.
When SMU opened in 1911 University Park, Texas, began with the president’s house on University and a few faculty homes close by. By 1924 the population grew to 1,200 and it was incorporated. There are many distinct neighborhoods in University Park, but the range of homes can be seen by the small houses and duplexes close to SMU, to the golf course setting of St. Andrews to the one and two-acre lots of Volk Estates.
With a population of approximately 20,000, the shops of Snider Plaza, the Park Cities swimming pool, the YMCA and many churches, University Park, Texas, is like many old suburbs across the country, with the exception that it is in the middle of Dallas and the Highland Park School District.
I just want to thank you for your contribution to Texas Modern architecture style. I have found your website to be very informative on the subjects of my grandfather, David Williams, and of the other notable architects that have contributed to this regionalist movement.
