Highland Park Custom

What does a custom builder do when he wants to create a home for himself and his family? The beautiful Highland Park home at 3400 Harvard Ave. is the answer.

This inspiring property sits on nearly a 70-foot corner lot in Highland Park. It was built in 2005 by Richard Means of RAM Custom Homes for his family, and it’s really something! He included every amenity for modern-day living. Plus, he picked a fantastic location, near Abbott Avenue — you can walk to Katy Trail, Armstrong Elementary, parks, shopping, and restaurants.

“This beautiful home is great for a large family and entertaining,” said listing agent Eve Sullivan with Allie Beth Allman & Associates. “Richard is a third-generation builder in the Park Cities and he created a thoughtful family home with large rooms, a circular flow floorplan, and outdoor living with a swimming pool.”

With five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, two half baths, and 6,963 square feet on two stories, there’s room to spread out. And that’s not even considering the 38-foot, “L” shaped outdoor covered patio with an entertainment area! I’d love to give you a tour.

Perhaps it’s time to get back to the basics. At the heart of the real estate industry, it’s the people that matter. Yes, the homes are vital, too, but buying real estate is complicated and sometimes frustrating, and having a solid relationship with the people behind the transaction is everything.

Nora Ling Lane, a Executive Vice President of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, knows this. It was ingrained upon her by her mother, who was also a consummate professional. So it’s obvious why we’ve chosen Lane as our High Caliber Agent, sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

10731 Bridge Hollow Court facadeWe love a livable home, especially a livable luxury home. So many multi-million dollar homes are filled with rooms that rarely, if ever, get used, but that’s certainly not the case with this modern Mediterranean at 10731 Bridge Hollow Court in the Creeks of Preston Hollow.

For those of you unfamiliar with that subdivision, it’s between Strait Lane and Inwood Road, just south of Royal Lane. Yep, the honeypot of CEOs, sports stars, and those with extremely discerning taste. (more…)
