D Magazine Voted Melshire as one of the Top 10 Neighborhoods in Dallas 2017!
Here is what D Magazine wrote about Melshire Estates:
On a Wednesday afternoon, a father pushes a stroller while his son, wearing a Mavs yarmulke, rides past Jamestown Park on a Razor Scooter, the fringed tzitzit hanging from his cargo shorts waving in the breeze. Around the corner, Hispanic, African-American, and Anglo kids escape into the sun during their lunch hour at E.D. Walker Middle School.
This diverse neighborhood is set between the Tollway and Preston Road to the west and east, and Charlestown Drive and Forest Lane to the north and south. The large lots, housing a mix of sprawling, traditional ranches and modern, transitional new-builds, are quietly tucked amid schools, churches, and shopping centers. In addition to Walker Middle School, there’s Jesuit Dallas, St. Rita Catholic School, Dallas International School, and Alcuin School. The Dallas Texas Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sits behind Congregation Ohr HaTorah. As far as shopping? You can get your hair and nails done, deposit a check, get your suit tailored and your car washed, take your kid to the pediatrician, stop at the kosher Tom Thumb, and pick up a bubble tea on your way home from yoga, all at the end of the block. And just wait until they finish the new development where Valley View Mall used to be. This is a neighborhood residents never need, or want, to leave.
