With the Central Market at Preston and Royal currently closed, the absence of healthy, no-prep meals is acutely felt in Preston Hollow. To remedy that, H-E-B has brought one of their disaster response fleet to the Preston Royal Shopping Center. The mobile kitchen arrived today and will be available to serve meals to first responders, construction workers, and neighbors affected by the tornado through Saturday, Oct. 26, the company said. 

Meals are free of charge, as are the complimentary cleaning supply kits the company will hand out to the first 500 homeowners starting tomorrow morning. H-E-B will also have produce, snacks, and waters available on-site through Tuesday.

Royal Crest
We cannot even begin to tell you how prime this neighborhood is —  I live within walking, and certainly trick or treating, distance of 11031 Lawnhaven in Royal Crest! And you know the first mantra of buying real estate: location location location. The lots are enormous and set back, the trees mature, lush, and perfect for casting spooky nighttime shadows, or hosting hundreds of twinkling holiday lights.
Plus there is something even more wonderful about Royal Crest: access to the wonderful Northaven Trail. In fact, this very home backs to the Northaven Trail and is about a two-minute walk from a main entrance. Whether you walk, jog, bicycle or meander, the Northaven Trail is one of the best neighborhood amenities anywhere! The Northaven Trail, when completed, will connect to the White Rock Creek Trail and future SoPac Trail on the east, and to the future Elmfork Greenbelt Trail on the west. Not only is the trail adding parkland and greenspace to Dallas, it connects residents with the whole city.
11031 Lawnhaven is a completely, dramatically renovated property. If this work looks familiar, it’s because we have seen this builder before, but in Lochwood, not Preston Royal. Nestled on a .34 acre lot in Royal Crest, 11031 Lawnhaven is perfectly located between Preston Road and Hillcrest. The home offers quick, easy access to LBJ, Northwest Highway, Central and The Dallas North Tollway.

You’ve heard this before: never buy your art to match the sofa. True, but if you are seeking some beautiful, reasonably-priced art to stage a listing or your own home, what if there is no sofa to NOT match? Hop on over to Gallery Interiors HUGE new art sale. Owner Mark Lafferty has gotten in a shipment of hundreds of paintings in all shapes, sizes and colors — so many he has had to float some pieces in an outside tent. Prices are ridiculously low; the artists continue to starve? But honestly, have you ever seen an obese artist? Gallery Interiors is located on the southwest corner of Preston and Royal in the Preston Royal Shopping Center.
