Dave Perry-Miller’s Personal Home Up For Grabs In Knox-Henderson

Share News:

Courtney Jubinsky of Dave Perry-Miller Preston Center has listed 3119 Oliver Avenue for $695,000.

Landing the perfect Knox-Henderson home at an affordable price is like finding a needle in a haystack, right? Wrong! We found one of the last remaining single-family homes in the area, and received a call from Dave Perry-Miller himself to chat about this once-in-a-lifetime listing.

“I think what makes the property exceptional or unique are the following: It is one of the only single-family houses left in all of Knox-Henderson in the entire city,” says Perry-Miller. “Secondly, it has a detached garage, a wonderful screened-in porch, and a terraced courtyard in the back, so it’s got a certain amount of privacy. And my gosh, I lived there for the last year and a half to two years after I sold my big house in Bluffview and I loved it!”

Curb Appeal For Days

The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home is currently listed by Courtney Jubinsky of Dave Perry-Miller Preston Center for $695,000, and it’s giving us major Rosehill Cottage vibes!

“I am in love with this house and for so many reasons,” says Jubinsky. “Location, location, location, and of course, the home is undeniably charming from the white picket fence to the screened-in back porch and private backyard. The savvy buyer will appreciate that this home is one of the few remaining single-family detached properties in the Knox-Henderson area sited in a platinum, 50-yard-line location. An added bonus is that the property is zoned commercial per the Dallas Central Appraisal District. This rare and picturesque home radiates splurge, but it really is a steal!”

Premier Knox-Henderson Location

“I could have my dog there! I was right in the city but I had my dog there,” adds Perry-Miller. “The Episcopal church is right across the street practically, and I could walk out my door and go to some of my favorite restaurants in Dallas – Ziziki, Café Madrid, Bliboquet, Toulouse. It has wonderful places to go for coffee and breakfast and dinner that you can walk to for a glass of wine. It’s like being in New York City, and yet you get an actual house instead of a 200-square-foot apartment for that price.”

And when Perry-Miller says you can walk to the best restaurants in Dallas, he’s not exaggerating! The home is mere steps from Knox-McKinney Avenue shops and restaurants, with close proximity to the ever-popular Katy Trail.

Architecture That Is Cozy, Yet Lives Large

Even more impressive? The 1920s architecture and inviting French door entry flooding the home with natural light. The 1,183-square-foot charmer sits on a sizable 4,008-square-foot lot, and comes lushly landscaped and private, with interiors that are too cute for words!

Open, Airy Living Spaces

We love the gas-log fireplace in the living space, the light and airy bedrooms, and the quaint kitchen leading to a screened porch for sipping cocktails and shooting the breeze.

Terraced Courtyard For Entertaining

The backyard comes dotted with a canopy of mature trees, and makes for an enchanting space to dine, catch up on a good book, or entertain.

Thoughtful Updates, Timeless Appeal

Recent updates include fresh paint, carpet, light fixtures, and a bathroom reconfiguration with updated flooring and window shades. Outdoors, you’ll find new hardscape and plant materials, a refreshed front porch with brick steps, a gravel sitting area in the back yard, an irrigation system, and more.
