Danette Galvis of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate is offering the property for $995,000, and it will be open from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday so prospective buyers have time to take in all of the extensive updates.

Located in sought-after Northwood Hills on a half-acre lot, the property is beautified by a forest of mature oak trees, many Japanese maples, and extensive landscaped gardens. Guests enter through the custom-designed mahogany and glass doors into a living area that encompasses the outdoor views that create a relaxing lifestyle. The formal dining room has a sitting room that leads to an Asian-accented patio and garden area for intimate gatherings.




The true chef’s kitchen features a Blue Star eight-burner range complemented by a commercial-grade Vent-a-Hood blower. Other amenities include a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer and a center island that offers abundant storage. Off the kitchen you enter the wine storage/chiller room, which leads to a covered outdoor cooking area.




The home offers custom cabinetry with granite countertops, red oak flooring in the hallway and bedrooms, while the living room, kitchen, and bathroom floors feature radiant heated tile. The master bathroom boasts a commercial Sanijet Pipeless Technology spa tub, dual vanities, a rain shower, separate walk-in closets, and access to the pool.




Other custom features include a 22-gauge standing-seam steel roof, a central vacuum system, recirculating hot water, a greenhouse/vegetable garden, a custom storage area, and a beautiful reflecting pond off the guest bedroom. Panoramic windows give every room private views of the outdoor gardens and blue lagoon pool.




This home offers a very private and secluded environment that makes you feel like you’re a world away from the city’s buzz but only minutes from fine dining, upscale shopping, and excellent schools.

Stop by Sunday Afternoon to See This Great Example of Classic Ranch Style


If you want to see a meticulously maintained example of a classic ranch-style home, then you need to see 10815 Royal Park Drive. Lori Kircher, who is offering the North Dallas property for $700,000, will hold it open to prospective buyers from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Built in 1969, the one-story, four-bedroom home still bears many architectural and design elements specific to the period. Most of the flooring is made of large Saltillo tiles, and the enormous family room features walls paneled in white oak that matches the beams in the vaulted ceiling. Each of the front formals includes a wall finished in fabric, and the formal living room has floor-to-ceiling shelves covering two other walls.






The fireplace in the family room anchors a rough-hewn stone wall, and there is an interior brick wall in the adjacent sun room. Both of these rooms are open to the kitchen, which features a backsplash of hand-painted tiles, vintage dark-stained cabinets, and a full suite of built-in appliances.






The heavily treed half-acre lot, which includes a sparkling pool, is on a cul-de-sac that is conveniently located off of Royal Lane. Car collectors will love that the attached two-car garage is complemented by a detached three-car garage. But those who prefer to travel on foot or by bicycle will enjoy the backyard’s direct access to the Northaven Trail.

Attention, Dallas Cowboys Fans: Home Built for Coach Tom Landry is For Sale


The four-bedroom home at 4510 Hallmark Drive has a special place in Dallas history. Custom built in 1962 for longtime Cowboys head coach Tom Landry and his wife, Alicia, the property has changed hands only once. You could be the third owner, because Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Kathy Myers and Lacy Schultz are offering this rare opportunity at $795,000.

Such stability in ownership is appropriate given the home’s connection to Landry, who was the Cowboys’ only head coach for their first 29 seasons. In the subsequent 26 seasons, the team has been led by no fewer than seven coaches.


Built to the Landrys’ specifications, the 4,000-square-foot home was where they raised their children as Tom turned the Cowboys into America’s Team. The Landrys’ ownership of 4510 Hallmark overlapped with the franchise’s first three Super Bowl appearances, including the team’s victory over the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl VI.

The beautifully designed transitional home has an open floor plan that creates space for entertaining and everyday living. The expansive family room and formal living room both feature tile floors and vaulted ceilings. An abundance of large windows overlook the lush backyard and the rear patio with a skylight.







Remodeled by The Ed Jarrett Company, the kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, granite counters on the island and the perimeter, hardwood floors, and custom cabinetry.




The master suite features a sitting area where you can enjoy ample natural light. The master bath has a barrel vault ceiling, a separate shower and tub, double vanities, and three closets.




The property is conveniently located just blocks from the Hockaday School and the Town North YMCA. Its new owners will enjoy easy access to both LBJ Freeway and the Dallas North Tollway.

Natural light infuses the living areas, including French doors on two den walls. The first set offers views of a wonderful side yard and a sunning patio with access to a bubbling rectangular pool. The second set of doors opens to what may be the home’s most fabulous feature: a stunning covered patio with a pitched, high-beamed ceiling anchored by a built-in fireplace at the rear.




A large flat-screen TV makes for fun football weekends, then folds away behind an attractive screen when not in use. This outdoor oasis is perfect for year-round entertaining or just relaxing to the sound and feel of soothing waters in your tree-shaded pool.




The generous downstairs master suite features a raised ceiling, walk-ins, and a gorgeous stand-alone bath along with a spacious, dual-head shower.




The kitchen boasts a Kenmore Pro double oven, a warming drawer, an ice maker, a wine chiller, granite counter tops, and a mosaic backsplash finished in Bisazza tiles.




Deep, beautiful crown moldings and hardwood floors provide rich accents to the warm feel throughout the house. On the second level — which can be accessed by staircases in the front as well as rear — there’s a roomy theater with a video screen and a projector, plus a full bath to boot. A Hollywood bath connects two bedrooms, while a hall bath serves the third upstairs bedroom. A living space at the center of the second level is large enough to serve as a playroom, den, or game room.




Completing the picture of this outstanding home is an oversized garage, abundant storage with a walk-in attic, and the final bonus: a cute kennel under the rear staircase!

Expansion Made Preston Hollow Home Perfect for Indoor-Outdoor Lifestyle


The one-story home at 6622 Desco Drive is located on a luscious treed lot in the heart of Preston Hollow. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Martha & McKamy Tiner are offering the property, which will be open from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, for $1,095,000.


Built in 1952, the home underwent a complete remodel and expansion about 10 years ago that makes it perfect for an indoor-outdoor lifestyle and entertaining. The main part of the addition is a third living room with a tile floor, a wet bar, and a vaulted ceiling with multiple skylights. Augmented by a study and a full bath, the room opens to the poolside deck and expansive backyard via a set of French doors.




This living room has another exterior door to the motor court that sits between the property’s pair of two-car garages. One is attached to the main house, while the other is under the guest quarters. The latter garage is spacious and temperature-controlled, so certain buyers may use it as a workshop or art studio.




With 3,700 square feet, the main house provides plenty of room to spread out. The first room you enter from the front door is the formal living room, which is open to the dining room via a large arched doorway. The living room shares a wall with the den, and there are fireplaces on either side of it.




The den is open to the aforementioned addition and the kitchen, which features stainless-steel appliances including double ovens, granite countertops, and a stone-tile backsplash. The kitchen is complemented by a large utility room with a walk-in pantry.




The main house has no carpet. There’s tile in the addition and the bathrooms, but the rest of the rooms have hardwood floors. The bathroom in the master suite has a jetted corner tub, a separate shower, a double vanity, and a skylight. The two children’s bedrooms share a hall bath.




Located just around the corner from Preston Hollow Park, the home is also convenient to a number of private schools, NorthPark Center, and Preston Center. To schedule a showing, contact McKamy Tiner at 214-354-6903 or
