Welcome to Bluffview

What was once a dairy farm pasture is home to some of Dallas’ most desirable properties. The shaded, winding streets do, in fact, sit on a bluff. Home to famous names like musician Don Henley and former U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, residents are drawn to the natural beauty of a community surprisingly close to a busy airport like Love Field.
