Dilbeck midcentury modernThis quintessential Charles Dilbeck Midcentury Modern in Russwod Acres is going to take your breath away. Wait, what did I say? Dilbeck and Midcentury Modern. Do those two terms even go together?

Yes, indeed they do, but rarely.

Dilbeck midcentury modern

A floor-to-ceiling fireplace, a hallmark of Dilbeck, anchors the house and provides the focal point of the living area. A drop-down screen is tucked over the artwork.

We generally think of architect Charles Dilbeck as the eclectic dude that was inspired by Tom Mix (look him up, my Millennials) to create whimsical homes with stained glass, iron gates, and fanciful details. Hold that thought. He also created a few Midcentury Modern masterpieces. This Dilbeck Midcentury Modern at 5016 Tanbark is one of the most striking examples I’ve ever seen. (more…)

What will he do next?

We are not talking about 89-year-old oil tycoon and philanthropist T. Boone Pickens. He has his famous, 65,000-square-foot West Texas ranch, Mesa Vista, on the market for $250 million. Who knows, could be sold by now.

Now he has sold his Preston Hollow mansion, listed with Dave Perry-Miller and Ryan Streiff. Selling price was $5 million. Word is that T. Boone is heading for a luxury condo.

Strait Lane

The estate at 10620 Strait Ln. is one of three currently represented by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate on this stories, exclusive street.

Strait Lane is one of the most fabulous and famous streets in Dallas. It’s home to a veritable Who’s Who of residents, from Margot and Ross Perot to Jessica and Dirk Nowitzki. They live in some of the city’s most impressive and esteemed estates. Buy a home on Strait Lane and not only have you arrived, you’ve probably arrived in a Learjet.

I’ve found three extraordinary Strait Lane residences represented by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. They’re within a half mile of each other on the most exclusive stretch of the street in Old Preston Hollow.  

Conveniently located only 15 minutes from downtown Dallas, this close-in arrangement is why some of the city’s most distinguished residents make Strait Lane their chosen address.

“Some of Dallas’ top-rated private schools, shopping, and dining are within minutes of Strait Lane and it has estates ranging from 1 to 25 acres — you have a country-like setting in this location,” said Realtor Ryan Streiff with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. “The homes are deeply set back and those on the east side have beautiful creek views. There’s also an off-duty Dallas police officer patrolling these gated properties, offering a very secure setting.”

Perry-Miller Streiff Group

Nine agents thus far, and by the time you read this, there may be TEN!

This past summer, in-between saving and remodeling his historic estate, Waverley Hill, in Staunton, Virgina, Dave Perry-Miller and Ryan Streiff were up to something else. Together, they formed the Perry-Miller Streiff Group of eleven power house agents & dedicated support staff now working out of the flagship Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate office on Berkshire.

And the entire city is paying close attention.

This group closed 2016 by selling a whopping $100 million of real estate. The team is led, of course, by Dave and Ryan, and other members of this elite team include: Laura Michelle, Courtney Jubinsky, Karen Fry, Gaynelle Henger, Jason Bates, Charles Gregory, Kathy Finn, Betsie Sears, and Carolyn Vandagriff.

“Our clients appreciate not only the high end marketing and staff support, but also the unmatched agent collaboration that is unlike any other real estate team in town,” says Gaynelle Henger

And they are going to kill it in 2017: just last week The Perry-Miller Streiff Group had a record breaking closing (since 2009, that is) in Lobello Estates. The Perry-Miller Streiff Group also recently brokered the last two highest sales ever in the hot-getting-hotter gated community of Glen Lakes:  7 Kingsgate, listed for $1,995,000, and 7711 Glen Albens, a home that was, like many of the team’s sales, an off market deal when it actually sold, having been previously listed and in MLS both with Ryan Streiff and with Briggs Freeman. The home, designed by Ralph Duesing and built by Tommy Ford, was last listed at $2,795,000 and had been on the market since 2013. Like we said, Glen Lakes is HOT.
