These Homes May Distract You During The Park Cities Fourth of July Parade

The Park Cities Fourth of July Parade is one of Dallas’ greatest Independence Day traditions. Residents of the Park Cities and surrounding neighborhoods will come together on Saturday morning to watch people representing various businesses, schools, and community groups march from Town Hall in Highland Park to City Hall in University Park. As they traverse that 2-mile route, they will pass many homes marketed by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agents.


There are two top-of-the-line estates in the parade’s staging area, starting with 3700 Euclid Avenue. This well-appointed home was completed in 2012 and showcases 13,980 square feet of clean-lined open space with an aura of tranquility and refined elegance.

Pac-Man is Chomping His Way Through Your Neighborhood, Thanks to Google

If you haven’t used Google Maps this week, then you’re missing out on a great April Fool’s Day/Easter present. In addition to the traditional Map and Earth views, Google Maps now has a Pac-Man option. Virtually any street grid can be turned into a Pac-Man board, complete with the titular chomper and those pesky ghosts, Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde.

Media outlets such as Forbes and Wired have already detailed some of the best places to play this new version of the game. We decided to give it a try near a few of our properties of distinction.

It works at 3700 Euclid Avenue in Highland Park …


… at 6627 Lakewood Boulevard in Lakewood …


… and at 1136 Turner Avenue in Kessler Park.


We’re not sure how long Google will keep the game active, so type in your address today and see how it goes. Then let us know where Dallas’ best Pac-Man locations are.

Custom Highland Park Estate Has Everything a Family Could Desire


Prominently positioned on a sprawling .875-acre corner lot, the custom residence at 3700 Euclid Avenue, completed in 2012, is an exceptional luxury offering in the heart of Highland Park. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Kelly Hosch and Shelly Bailey are offering the estate for $15,995,000.

Masterfully designed by the award-winning architectural team of Stocker, Hoestery and Montenegro, this well-appointed home showcases 13,980 square feet of clean-lined open space with an aura of tranquility and refined elegance. It was meticulously constructed by Rusty Goff with a flawless blend of carefully selected 18th-century materials, a plethora of modern-day amenities, and unsurpassed quality of workmanship, resulting in a state-of-the-art Texas Mediterranean masterpiece!

The exterior is a tasteful combination of Texas Leuders rough back limestone and cementitious plaster with reclaimed antique brick border accents, topped with a two-piece clay-barrel tile roof. Imported Italian chestnut wood windows by CC Serramenti and locally handcrafted steel doors graciously illuminate each room with abundant natural light.


Crisp white walls with elliptical eased-edge archways contribute to the fresh, airy ambiance throughout. Striking cross-vault ceilings and 300-year-old imported Chateau Domingue limestone flooring line the foyer. A fully equipped bar and a climate-controlled wine cellar finished with hand-cut Italian brick and masonry detail are ideally positioned for entertaining.



Beautiful wide-plank hardwood flooring leads to a handsome study with a vaulted beamed ceiling and white oak cabinetry with excellent storage and display capacity.


A luxurious private guest suite with 11-foot ceilings, a spa bath, an oversized shower, heated Vendome limestone flooring, and custom white oak cabinetry reminiscent of a five-star resort occupies the west wing.


Not to be missed is the elegant hall powder bath with an 18th-century stone wall-mounted sink and wine-barrel spout from Provence coupled with 17th-century Portuguese cobblestone flooring creating authentic design impact.


Dual downstairs living rooms — each outfitted with reclaimed Pennsylvania timbers, concrete headers, and a Rumford-style fireplace — seamlessly transition to the kitchen and open to the expansive loggia. A pair of custom 6-foot “lift and slide” doors creates a 12-foot opening enhancing the desired indoor-outdoor connection.





The palatial open kitchen is anchored by a 17-foot island and fully equipped with commercial-grade Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances. Gorgeous Crema Marfil counters and heated Chateau Domingue “Dalles de Bourgogne” limestone flooring complement the peaceful neutral palette. Easy-access lower cabinets with custom drawer features enable unobstructed views and add to the open concept.



The exquisite dining room is uniquely designed with a circular radius, multiple art niches, and a subtle dome ceiling creating an elegant intimate space. Three walls of windows provide abundant soft light, while landscaping lends an element of privacy.


An impressive gym with an adjoining meditation room overlooks a tranquil water feature enhancing the Zen-like setting.


The multi-purpose mud room is host to multiple lockers, two work stations, and a stackable washer/dryer, and offers convenient elevator access. It’s complemented by a blued-tiled utility room on the second floor.



The second floor was intentionally designed as a family-oriented space with four generous secondary bedroom suites sharing a central gathering room or reading lounge.






The master is a sumptuous retreat in itself, with its soothing fresh palette adorned with a vaulted beamed ceiling, a gas fireplace, and a private balcony overlooking the expansive backyard. Each enjoys a separate luxury bath and impressive dressing gallery. Her bathroom suite is beyond exquisite, with Namibian white marble counters, Ann Sacks tiles, a Bain Ultra spa tub, a Jaclo steam shower, and THG Paris fixtures. An open adjoining dressing gallery is worthy of being featured in a magazine! His closet offers functional design to facilitate packing, with a center island and custom storage spaces, and is handsomely outfitted like a country club locker room.






The 2,000-square-foot basement, with high-end finish comparable to above-ground rooms, is a fabulous flex space serving as the children’s playroom/media room, complete with a built-in stage, spot lighting, and a retractable screen and projector. A generous half-bath, abundant storage, and a state-of-the-art mechanical service closet housing commercial-quality systems — including a geothermal heating and cooling system, two 150-gallon continuous-recovery water heaters and purification system, a Crestron automated audio/video system, Lutron lighting, and an array of security features — complete the basement.


The colossal backyard is introduced by an inviting loggia with a wood-burning fireplace and retractable Phantom screens for year-round enjoyment! A five–hole putting green with a practice bunker and a play yard with artificial turf by Southwest Greens are adjacent to a vast Zeon Zoysia grassy area that could easily accommodate a resort-size pool! Mature magnolias and towering evergreens line the perimeter for added privacy. A gated motor court and porte-cochere leads to three attached-garage spaces with a storage room for golf clubs and an additional detached fourth-car garage, while providing plentiful enclosed space for outdoor play!






Enjoy a short walk or bike ride to iconic Lakeside Drive, the Highland Park Library, the Katy Trail, as well as popular boutique shops and restaurants.

This uniquely elegant, comfortable home offers tremendous interior and exterior space without feeling opulent or overwhelming. The tasteful top-notch finish-out, eco-friendly and technologically advanced amenities, and precise attention to detail are nothing short of perfection!
