Devonshire Homes for Sale - click here The Devonshire neighborhood includes about 750 home, mature trees, sidewalks and a mix of new homes and cottages (many of the original homes were built along with University Park) makes this area unique in Dallas. Many of the same style homes available in University Park are available in Devonshire but are less expensive. Why the price break? Two things that keep University Park pricey: its Highland Park school system and University Park fire and police services. Devonshire is served by the Dallas Independent School District and by the Dallas police and fire departments. The Devonshire Neighborhood Association has a crime watch organization and pays for extra patrols. Westminster Presbyterian Church on Devonshire Drive opens its playground to residents, and pets are welcome at the large field behind the church. Many streets in Devonshire share the same names as University Park streets because they were built at the same time, bisected by a railroad and later the tollway, with Devonshire on the west side. Much of Devonshire was laid out similarly to University Park, too, with small lots 50 to 60 feet wide and 150 feet deep. Over the years, most of the original houses have been remodeled or torn down. History: Most of the southern half of Devonshire was developed largely in the 1930s and 1940s, along with University Park. Farmland occupied much of the remaining area; most was developed later, a parcel at a time, beginning in the late 1950s.
