Family’s memories to help find 11031 Lawnhaven’s next owners


So many of our lifetime memories have to do with “home.”  Of course, there’s the first house we bought. Where we lived as newlyweds. Where we brought our first child home from the hospital, adding a few more over the years. And then there’s the neighborhood. The families we became friends and had block parties with, borrowed lawn tools from and joined on the porch to watch the kids play in the sprinklers over a glass of lemonade. The local shopping center where we went at least three times a week for groceries and what-nots. And finally the schools where we experienced some tearful first days and a few joyful graduations. It’s your own little world for awhile and when the time comes, it’s hard to leave. But when you do, you want others to understand and appreciate all the wonderful ways you and your family benefitted from it all.

The owners of 11031 Lawnhaven Drive, just on the outskirts of Preston Hollow in North Dallas, are in the position to leave. But rather than just let all the marketing and promotion of their home fall on their listing agent, Angela McCants, they are eager to help out by providing insights prospective buyers don’t often get. In addition to the concrete facts — like that it’s four bedrooms, three baths and 2,665 square feet set on .35 acres along a greenbelt — they are shedding light on what it’s actually like to live there.

11031 Lawnhaven is just blocks away from the hot Preston Royal Shopping Center, which is getting an Eatzi's, Shake Shack, Sur La Table and indie bookstore soon. It also has a Central Market, Tom Thumb, Steel City Pops, Snap Kitchen, a post office and much more.

“We fell in love with this house in 1993. It was an easy drive to our business, six miles away in the Park Cities. We loved being surrounded by and having the option to attend numerous public and private schools for our kids, Pre-K through High School. It is convenient to our favorite restaurants and stores in the Preston Royal and Preston Forest Shopping Centers. And quick access to 75/Central and the Dallas North Tollway makes this neighborhood central to the entire city.”

“The split bedroom house plan proved to be ideal for us as our kids grew older. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the master bedroom separated from the rest of the house. The large sitting room that adjoins the master, with the huge picture window, was the perfect place to watch the kids play in the backyard while riding our exercise bike or working at the desk. And, when the kids left for college it was easy to convert one bedroom to a hobby room, and another for house guests without disrupting the ambiance of the master.”

“With the open floor plan, large family gatherings and meals were easy to accommodate as we could set up to three dining areas within earshot of each other.”

“The green space behind the house, now known as the Northaven Trail, is a favorite place to throw a frisbee, walk the dogs, and bike with the kids. The neighboring elementary school, George Bannerman Dealey Montessori Academy occasionally shows family friendly movies on the Trail just a half a block away [near the Little Free Library]. The Neighborhood Crime Watch is rated one of the best in the city, and the Association hosts seasonal events throughout the year. St. Marks School of Texas is also walking distance.”

McCants says of this property, “I really appreciate their willingness to express how much this home has meant to them, as they prepare to let the next owners take over. It’s priced to sell at $639,900. It has great character and solid bones, so all someone needs to do is renovate/expand and personalize this home for the next generation to start making memories.”

Find Out How Much it Takes for a Family of Four to Get By in Dallas


8819 San Leandro

8819 San Leandro Drive is just one of our homes that may be attractive to new Dallas residents.

The Economic Policy Institute, a think thank devoted to the economic condition of low- and middle-income Americans and their families, has updated its Family Budget Calculator, which tells you much money a family needs to make in order to attain “a secure yet modest” standard of living in a given city.

The Dallas Morning News reported that a family of four needs to earn $61,152 a year just to get by in the Dallas area, according to the institute’s calculator. That’s a bit lower than the national median amount, which the newspaper reported is $63,744.

Meanwhile, MarketWatch used the Family Budget Calculator to figure out the 10 most expensive places to raise a family in the United States. The website’s research showed that Washington, D.C., was the most expensive, with seven of the remaining nine being within commuting distance of New York City. No surprise there.

If any New Yorkers or Washingtonians reading this want to relocate to Dallas, we have plenty of properties available.
