Waverley Hill overview

Dave Perry-Miller is back in Dallas doing what he loves to do the most, what he does the best: help clients buy and sell homes.

He’s been known to buy a few himself, too.

I’ve known Dave for years, and he never stops networking or selling real estate, not even in his sleep in the wilds of Costa Rica. Not even after we toured the beaches and second home properties at Peninsula Papagayo, then whisked away in the Perot’s private jet.

Over the years, Dave has worn so many different hats. In 2007, Ebby Halliday acquired Dave Perry-Miller Associates. Dave was both selling and leading the troops, which kept expanding, as his sole Preston Center office expanded to a Highland Park office in the Tolleson building framing the Dallas Country Club, and an Uptown office on Routh Street. Next came the Lakewood office right next to Dallas Affaires Bakery.

Now, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate is all over town.

We do love a good modern home. Clean lines, open spaces, right angles, and striking textures stimulate our senses and inspire us. That’s exactly what our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans does. This home in sought-after Idlewild Acres is gorgeous from the curb, and it only gets better inside.

Looking for the modern home of your dreams? Take the first step and get pre-approved with Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. Who knows — once you tour this listing from Dave Perry-Miller’s Gullotto Barnes Group, you may be ready to put in an offer!

GetMediaThere are homes that defy time. They last generations because they’re designed with classic architectural features that don’t go out of style, and are easily updated with little more than a coat of paint and some new tile. We have a stunning example of this for you today, an architecturally timeless Highland Park custom home at 4308 Arcady. Co-listed by Meridith Hayes and Karen Fry of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $3.39 million, it’s 5,787 square feet of perfection.

VIP party guest2

Last Wednesday, we were just starting to feel a bit lighter on the scales after a weekend of eating turkey, or whatever your favorite Thanksgiving indulgence happened to be. Heritage Auctions Luxury Real Estate threw open the doors at 3908 Euclid, the Dallas-based auction house’s next big luxury real estate auction that happens NEXT WEEK! The previews begin this Friday through Monday, from 1 to 5 p.m, at the property.

And where did everyone end up after the presentation? In the DREAM GARAGE!

That’s right, you too can grab the steal deal of the century (and the best garage in Texas) for an exquisitely timeless, modern home on one of Highland Park’s most coveted streets designed by Joe McCall, built by Randy Clowdus, and offered for sale by the folks at Heritage along with Martha and McKamy Tiner from Dave Perry-Miller.

Heritage is the world’s third largest auction house and is a leader in luxury real estate auctions after several recent scores, including the successful sale and closing of 3756 Armstrong Avenue, Highland Park’s famed O’Neil Ford house. It is now the only top tier auction company to offer truly luxury properties through auctions. Utilizing a powerful platform from a client base of more than 900,000 members worldwide, Heritage Auctions specializes in marketing and selling luxury real estate valued at $2 million and above throughout the United States, the Caribbean, and in select international destinations. It is an effective alternative to selling high-end properties in a transparent, competitive bidding environment — all within 60 to 90 days.

True to it’s core business, Heritage also offers a benefit auction at each property prior to sale. Through donated paintings and furniture, funds were raised last week for Jubilee Park, a thriving residential neighborhood in Fair Park, with affordable new housing options for low income residents.

Heritage brought in Joe McCall, of Oglesby Greene Architects, who oversaw the construction of 3908 Euclid. The home is one of the most unique in Dallas. There is a six-car garage split in two, four bays decked out as a professional garage for car collectors and aficionados.

3908 Euclid is not like any other home that has been to auction in Dallas. Frankly, it has no flaws. The home was timelessly built to the most exacting standards by the owners, architect and builder. Though the brick appears to be NorthPark brick, it simply matches the same color.

The home will have an undisclosed (but easily attainable) reserve, the listing price is $6,400,000. It is listed with veteran Dave Perry-Miller agent Martha Tiner and her daughter, McKamy. Get thee to this auction for the bargain of a century!

Oh and one more thing you will not find in any other house in Dallas: a waterproof mailbox! Jump for more party photos!

4920 Mangold Circle ext

Talk about taking a test drive in a home, I cannot think of a more beautiful setting for sweating than 4920 Mangold Circle. The home is empty, which actually gives you a chance to appreciate the clean, but definitive, architecture. So for once, we will not complain about no furnishings. Shh!

I told you about the location off Strait Lane, north of Royal, the “quieter” part of Strait Lane. But go inside to see how architect William Briggs blended Leuders Limestone on the interiors. Bringing natural stone into the home is one of the hottest new trends I have seen (huge on the West Coast) and no one seems to be talking about it yet. Of course, builders have always brought brick and stone into the home, but the smooth-as-a-baby’s butt Leuders on foyer and study walls just melts my heart.

And if you want to totally crumble, take a look at that vessel bath tub and the stone wall behind it in the master bath. Holy moly, buy me this house (this TUB!) and you can have ANYTHING!

One of my wildest dreams has been to market luxury real estate like this: “Try Before You Buy”.

We try on shoes, clothes, and test-drive cars. All of those are a hell of a lot cheaper than a home. But who gets to “try a house” to see if you really love it? Why not take it for a “test-drive” before you sign on the dotted? 

That is exactly what The Perry-Miller Streiff Group of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate the week before the election. They took 4920 Mangold Circle, lovely creekside cul de sac off Strait Lane, not too far from Jennifer Staubach Gates’ pad on Keyhole, not for a just a test drive, but a lifestyle test. It’s called Dwell Well. Exercise and lifestyle experts from Equinox came over to implement a very successful program they have been developing in other states: real-time workout sessions around the pool, fitness and health tips, and nutritional snacks in a private listed residence.

It’s called “Sweat-working”.

“This is how you would actually live in this setting,” says Christina Marshall, Director, Central Regional Marketing for Equinox.”This is a chance to interact with the home, maybe invite a few friends over, and see how it fits while you try out the high performance lifestyle.”

4920 Mangold Circle is definitely a high performance house, befitting of a relationship with the Equinox brand. In fact, Equinox is owned by Related Companies, a privately owned real estate firm in New York City with offices and developments in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, San Francisco, even Abu Dhabi. The company was founded by Stephen M. Ross in 1972. Under it’s belt are Oxford Properties, Vornado Realty Trust, SL Green Realty, The Blackstone Group and Equinox. Formidable siblings, real estate in the blood.

“Fitness is no longer just in the gym,” says Christina, “It’s in your life. We provide you an amazing place to come to in the community, but we also venture outside of our four walls to show how we practice our three pillars and incorporate it into busy lives.”IMG_1330 (more…)

6787 Lakefair CircleIf only there were a house that suited both traditional taste and a more modern aesthetic …

Guess what? We’ve found it— a stunning Lakewood transitional.

Emily Ray-Porter with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate has just listed 6787 Lakefair Circle for $1.199 million, and it’s sure to please anyone looking for the best of both style worlds in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Dallas.

Lakewood is one of Dallas’ oldest neighborhoods, known for its great public and private schools and incredible sense of community. It’s minutes from White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum. Great location and a great family home? Score! (more…)

3910 Durango

Midway Hollow is beyond hot right now. Houses are being built, remodeled, restored and reconstructed as fast as hammers can fly. Candy says she was there Thursday night and cannot believe how many new homes are sprouting up.

Did we say “reconstructed”? Yes, reconstructed. That’s a term we don’t see much but it’s one we like… a lot. Basically it means giving a house new life by salvaging what you can, revamping, revising, revitalizing and sometimes adding on a bit, sometimes a lot more. We love it because it generally prevents complete teardowns and saves some of the existing materials.

Award-winning Blue Door Adobe custom home builders are the brains behind this Modern reconstructed ranch at 3910 Durango in Midway Hollow.
