Glen Abbey Provides the Privacy, Topography, and Security You Desire

If you love an environment with endless views of beautiful land, dramatic topography, a wide flowing creek, and at the same time desire a small, secure gated and guarded prestigious neighborhood of architect designed estate homes, then Glen Abbey is perfect. The streetscape of this very quiet neighborhood reflects the high power executives, business owners, athletes, and their families that comprise the collegial atmosphere of Glen Abbey. When one enters a home in this neighborhood, the street disappears and the beautiful gardens, mature trees, and gorgeous views appear.

White Rock Creek flows behind many of the homes, separating Glen Abbey from a nature preserve and greenbelt. The sights, sounds, and lights of the city are pushed further back by Preston Trail Golf Club and Bent Tree Country Club that form a perimeter wrapping around the greenbelts adjacent to Glen Abbey neighborhood.
