Five Magnificent Preston Hollow Homes


 

Home to Former President George W. Bush, Ross Perot, Dirk Nowitzki and a variety of names from politics to entertainment, Preston Hollow is synonymous for luxury and grandeur.

 

The area, nestled between Northwest Highway, Royal Lane, Hillcrest Avenue and Midway Road, was once an expanse of farmland before developer Ira DeLoache claimed it for the prestigious estates it is known for today.

 

Preston Hollow is also home to several of Dallas’ top private schools, including St. Mark’s School of Texas, an all-boys school ranked No. 6 in Niche.com’s 2019 Best Private High Schools in America.

 

With sprawling acres of lush foliage, it’s no wonder many of Dallas’ most affluent choose to reside in Preston Hollow.

 

We’ve chosen five homes that place luxury at the top of the priority list.

Sarah Todd Has the Midas Touch


 

Sarah Todd Has the Midas Touch

 

Sarah Todd has the distinct talent of seeing the world a little bit differently.

 

From views of London’s Tower Bridge to her safari adventures, Todd has the ability of transforming what she sees into abstract visions of bold acrylics and glistening metallics underneath a layer of sleek resin.

 

It’s her unique portrayal of the world around her that has captured the attention of many Dallas residents. Since she first became a full-time artist about a year ago, Todd has been working nonstop to bring her Midas touch to homes across Dallas and beyond.

 

“By the end of the year, I will have completed 100 paintings,” Todd told Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate in September.

 

 

Her design process and inspirations are featured in DPM’s fall/winter 2018 Fine Home Collection.

 

Todd is available to create custom pieces at her website sarahtoddart.com.

Christmas is only 49 days away, so why not get a headstart on planning? Forgo the paper and digital calendars and count down with something more festive — advent calendars.

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.

 

Lakewood’s Home Tour Takes a Village

 

“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.”

 

In addition to Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s sponsorship, two teams from the brand’s Lakewood officeJackson Sells and the Heather Guild Group — sponsor two of the homes in the tour.

 

Take a glimpse of the homes the teams are sponsoring below and see the rest of the homes in November.
