Forest Hills is proud to have a Preservation Dallas 2006 Preservation Dallas Preservation Achievement Award Winner.

Our newer homes incorporate Neo-eclectic, Neo-Mediterranean, Neo-Classical, Postmodern and Contemporary styles.

Based on Dallas Central Appraisal Records, the oldest home was built in 1920 and new homes are currently under construction..
