Satiate your curiosities and take part in a decades-long tradition of giving back to local East Dallas schools during this year’s Lakewood Home Festival from Nov. 9 to Nov. 11.
The fall tradition, now in its 42nd year, spans nearly 4 miles of Lakewood’s best tree-lined neighborhoods, highlighting the various architectural styles and designs of seven homes.
Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate is a proud sponsor of the event, commencing with the auction party at 7 p.m. Nov. 9, with this year’s theme, “Lakewood Takes a Bite Out of the Big Apple.” The party will feature live and silent auctions. Tickets for the auction start at $150.
The following evening, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate is also sponsoring the Candlelight Tour from 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 10. Guests will enjoy sipping wine with the owners and architects of a selection of the homes. Tickets for the Candlelight Tour start at $30.30.
The Lakewood Home Festival is hosted by the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA and funds the purchase of school materials, computers and enrichment programs at Lakewood Elementary School, J.L. Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School. Last year’s festival raised over $200,000 for the three schools.
“It was truly our best year so far and not just because of the toal amount raised, “ Ana Whitcomb, 2018-19 LECPTA president said in Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s fall/winter 2018 Fine Home Collection magazine.
“For the first time, we were able to give every single penny back to the schools,” Whitcomb continued. “Our phenomenal sponsors helped make this possible — we couldn’t do it without them.”
Take a glimpse of the homes the teams are sponsoring below and see the rest of the homes in November.
The Jackson Sells team is sponsoring 6726 Lakewood Blvd., one of Lakewood’s “Dilbeck Triplets.”
The home, built by one of Dallas’ most notable architects, Charles Dilbeck, offers an oasis of a backyard. Lush and manicured landscaping surround a former log cabin-turned-pool house, once dubbed “Lakewood City Hall” for its use as a site to host neighborhood association meetings.
The Heather Guild Group is sponsoring 6927 Pasadena, a 2016 modern home built with entertaining at the top of mind. The home features breathtaking and unique living spaces for indoor and outdoor entertaining.
Tickets to the home tour are $20 and are available online at lakewoodhomefestival.com or at Lakewood Comerica Bank, Talulah & HESS and Snowbaby. Tickets will be available at the door at any of the homes on tour. The homes will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Children 12 and younger are free.
