Greenway Parks Custom Contemporary a55428f905e3c6ca9db323b412b246dc3l-m0r

We look at a lot of homes online, all day, every day. Now and again, there are homes that just jump off the screen, like this Greenway Parks custom contemporary at 5339 Nakoma Drive. Talk about a wow factor. This home wows from front to back, side to side, and up and down.

Sunnybrook IHOTW

Sometimes you see a house and think, “Wow, I could just move right into that one.” That’s the way we feel about this Sunnybrook Estates colonial revival at 5033 Brookview Drive.

Traditional homes create a strong pull. Many of us grew up in them, so they impart an immediate sense of home. But, we don’t want anything very traditional once we step inside. We want clean, sleek lines, museum-quality white walls, classic Carrara marble, and rich hardwoods.

We want this house. (more…)

Perry-Miller Streiff Group

Nine agents thus far, and by the time you read this, there may be TEN!

This past summer, in-between saving and remodeling his historic estate, Waverley Hill, in Staunton, Virgina, Dave Perry-Miller and Ryan Streiff were up to something else. Together, they formed the Perry-Miller Streiff Group of eleven power house agents & dedicated support staff now working out of the flagship Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate office on Berkshire.

And the entire city is paying close attention.

This group closed 2016 by selling a whopping $100 million of real estate. The team is led, of course, by Dave and Ryan, and other members of this elite team include: Laura Michelle, Courtney Jubinsky, Karen Fry, Gaynelle Henger, Jason Bates, Charles Gregory, Kathy Finn, Betsie Sears, and Carolyn Vandagriff.

“Our clients appreciate not only the high end marketing and staff support, but also the unmatched agent collaboration that is unlike any other real estate team in town,” says Gaynelle Henger

And they are going to kill it in 2017: just last week The Perry-Miller Streiff Group had a record breaking closing (since 2009, that is) in Lobello Estates. The Perry-Miller Streiff Group also recently brokered the last two highest sales ever in the hot-getting-hotter gated community of Glen Lakes:  7 Kingsgate, listed for $1,995,000, and 7711 Glen Albens, a home that was, like many of the team’s sales, an off market deal when it actually sold, having been previously listed and in MLS both with Ryan Streiff and with Briggs Freeman. The home, designed by Ralph Duesing and built by Tommy Ford, was last listed at $2,795,000 and had been on the market since 2013. Like we said, Glen Lakes is HOT.

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.

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!
