Very few homes stand the test of time. Our Inwood National Bank House of the Week is an incredibly chic modern colonial that looks as if it was renovated last year, not in 1996. It takes skill, knowledge, dedication, and talent to ensure a home does not become dated, and we’ve never seen a better […]Read More

Do you know Meals on Wheels? Each weekday, more than 4,000 hot lunches are cooked and delivered to homebound seniors and disabled persons throughout Dallas County. Volunteers do the delivering. It is a great volunteer opportunity for Realtors, especially, since they are chained to a car. Meals on Wheels is a project of the Visiting Nurses Association, and Peggy Millheiser happens to be on the board of VNA/Meals on Wheels. The VNA started the very first hospice program in Dallas, and continues the work today. They also offer private care and companionship.Read More

Seriously, this house could be a set for 2001: A Space Odyssey! Everything is white, white, white, and there’s a “reading tube” that reminds me of several scenes from Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, but this one particularly strikes a chord!
The home, 16919 Brushfield Dr., was built in 1979, and Kubrick’s 2001 hit theaters in 1968, so it’s doubtful that the architect was inspired by the film. Still, this house is so cool! I love the sunken living room, which is super common for the era. But what sells this house is the natural light. Because there are practically no walls and some cool floor-to-ceiling windows, there is tons of it. You’ll hardly need to flick a switch with all of the windows.Read More
