The Roman brick ranch at 815 Peavy Road is adorable. It’s a three-bedroom, two-bath home in Old Lake Highlands, feeds into Hexter Elementary, and is White Rock walkable. It also has a long, gated driveway and 10-foot privacy fence. It’s Pleasantville perfect and now is the perfect time to snatch it up – it is exceptionally priced at just $349,990.

Jenn Riley Rice is joining the Heather Guild Group at Compass Real Estate. 

According to Rice, the technology offered by Compass should streamline her job and allow her to spend more time with her clients.  She also already knew several members of the Heather Guild Group team and was really inspired by their dedication to both their clients and the East Dallas community.

“These women are actively involved in their neighborhood schools and community, as am I, so it feels like a perfect fit,” she said. “I can see and appreciate how supportive they are of one another, which can be a rare thing to observe.”

Rice is a lifelong Texan who moved to North Texas when she was 11. She’s spent the past two decades in East Dallas, which is also where she has the majority (though certainly not all) of her business.

“What I love most about East Dallas is all of the interesting people that create our tight-knit community,” she said.

It’s not something you expect to find on a buyer’s list of “must haves,” but this backyard is the perfect site for an epic Easter egg hunt.

Our privilege, as adults, is to turn the tables on Easter. You see, when I was growing up as the youngest of five kids in a Houston suburb, Easter was the morning of a humidity-soaked blood sport, when all five of us kids would careen through my parents’ sizable and heavily treed backyard in an effort to snatch the most Easter eggs from the most bizarre places. Bird feeders, tree limbs, fence posts — all were fair game. Afterward, we’d get dressed in our Easter togs and head to church. When we’d return home, my father would take the hard-boiled-and-pastel-dyed eggs and make a rainbow-colored potato salad to go with our Easter ham. The boasting of who snatched the most Easter eggs continued through the day. 

So maybe your shift as the Easter bunny won’t be as competitive as it was when I was growing up, but our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is perfect for hunting Easter eggs as it has a fantastic side yard and backyard on more than a third of an acre, complete with a pool! In fact, Jenny Capritta, listing agent for 9512 Milltrail Drive, says that this property is an Easter egg all in itself as it is rare to find a Lake Highlands Home with such a sizable lot and a pool.
