From Preston Hollow to Highland Park, Uptown to Lakewood, Kessler Park stretching all the way to Lake Highlands and North Dallas south of LBJ: there is a Dave Perry-Miller home in your future this weekend. Maybe even by Easter!
If you’ve been thinking about moving, or even if you just like to get inspiration from looking, there’s no better time to see what’s out there than at the Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate Spring Home Tour this Sunday, April 7 from 12 to 5 p.m. Visit openhouse.daveperrymiller.com for a complete list of homes available to tour.
In case you haven’t heard, the Dallas real estate market is back, blooming as big as our azaleas and gardenias. And with more inventory, there is so much to choose from. In fact, there may not have been a more perfect time to buy and sell a home than right now. And this weekend’s selections are loaded with exactly what buyers want: clean, contemporary lines, generous use of fine and rare woods and stone, kitchens that are more than functional, sweeping open floor plans, and master bath retreats that you will never want to leave… check out the oversized showers, the vessel tubs.
Whether you want a gardener’s dream green back-yard, an acre plus, a zero lot line, sparkling pool, flickering fireplace, even craggy hills, the Dave Perry-Miller Spring Home Tour has a home for you.
My favorite: the indoor/outdoor family room with sweeping, folding glass doors. Here they are:
