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 kitchen has been updated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.

“French doors leading to the covered patio and large backyard makes this a great house for entertaining.”



“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.”

Dave Perry-Miller Fine Home Collection Magazine, Spring 2016 - Homes for Sale in Dallas

Preston Hollow Home That Hosted Various ‘Royalty’ Open This Sunday 1 to 3pm

Every home has history, but few have a story. 5425 Royal Lane (5425royal.daveperrymiller.com) is one of the few. The just-listed five-bedroom, 5 full-bath/2 half-bath home presents a rare opportunity to own an acre in an exclusive cul-de-sac of Russwood Acres, just off of Royal in Preston Hollow. The French Mediterranean is represented by Margaret & Evelyn Ponder of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and is well-priced at $1,375,000 for 5,706 square feet.


“If these walls could talk,” Margaret says, “they’d boast about how they once hosted the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, the King of the Zulu tribe in Africa and other notable guests. For the home’s owners, entertaining was a lifestyle.”



You can almost hear the party chatter and clinking glasses moving from the two-story entry hall into the sunken living room or the magnificent great room with soaring ceilings.



“Double French doors in there open onto the outdoor living space,” Evelyn says. “It’s easy to picture your own parties overflowing outside to the clover-shaped waterfall pool area, summer kitchen and cabana/art studio.”



“The other side of the great room,” she continues, “is lined with bay windows overlooking a garden and large side yard, making for great views all around.”

The first floor master bedroom suite boasts a large sitting area and marble fireplace, and in the master bath, there are separate dressing rooms with an adjoining dry sauna and shower. Incredible etched glass detailing in the suite’s windows also remind you of the bygone era. Waterford and Baccarat fixtures serve as reminders that there was no corner-cutting then either.




The eat-in kitchen with tile countertops and farmhouse sink extends from front to back with views of both, and the dining room looks out to the pool as well. A bonus room off the kitchen could be an extra living space, game room or study. Back stairs lead up to four secondary bedrooms with en suite baths, walk-in closets and more great views of the property. The home also has a three-car garage.




Margaret and Evelyn are equally adept at entertaining and would love to show you around the home, telling you more of its great stories and features over a flute of prosecco. And should you decide you’d like to add your own stories to its colorful history, you’ll be equipped for a celebratory toast!

To schedule a private showing with Margaret or Evelyn, call 214-803-6002 or 214-535-8170 respectively, or email mponder@daveperrymiller.com or eponder@daveperrymiller.com.

Property’s Prime North Dallas Site Offers Plenty of Options for Buyer


With high ceilings, generously sized rooms, and an open floor plan, the ranch-style home at 5046 Radbrook Place would be a terrific place to raise a family on 1.05 acres in a premium North Dallas location. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Frada Sandler is offering the property for $1,289,000.




Immediately to the right of the welcoming, well-lit foyer are the formal living room and formal dining room. Each of these areas features hardwood floors, tray ceilings, intricate crown molding, and a trio of windows overlooking the front yard and circular drive.




The dining room leads to the kitchen, where you will enjoy plenty of storage via the plethora of white cabinets above and below the ceramic-tile counters. The center island is topped with butcher block, providing ample space for preparing meals. The large breakfast room provides views of the backyard oasis, featuring a covered patio, sparking pool, and towering trees.




The centerpiece of the sunken family room is a rough-hewn stone fireplace framed by large windows. The room’s tray ceiling features substantial beams and a pair of ceiling fans. Just off the family room is a study with built-in shelves that provides access to rear patio, as does the breakfast room.




From the study, you step up into the split-level master suite, which features a vaulted ceiling. The sitting and sleeping areas are separated by a two-sided brick fireplace. The master suite has two bathrooms, and there are two more bedroom suites in the same wing, each with their own bath and walk-in closet. The opposite end of the house features a fourth bedroom and a game room that share a Jack and Jill bathroom.




Built in 1970, this home offers plenty of options for its next owner — you can redecorate, remodel, or rebuild! No one will bat an eye if you choose the latter option, as new houses are under construction on the two lots immediately to the west.




To schedule a showing of 5046 Radbrook Place, contact Frada Sandler at frada@daveperrymiller.com or 214-616-6476.

TV News Anchor Jane McGarry Credits Her Move to Dave Perry-Miller Agents

Ryan Streiff and Carmen DiPenti co-anchored Jane McGarry’s purchase in Preston Hollow.

Candy Evans of Candy’s Dirt recently interviewed Good Morning Texas host Jane McGarry about her recent move from a Fort Worth house to a Preston Hollow pied-à-terre, and the longtime television anchor was quick to credit Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agents Carmen DiPenti and Ryan Streiff:

“Carmen is one of the most courteous, professional, thorough, and hungry young agents I have ever worked with. Ryan knows property in Dallas like the back of his hand. Most important, I trusted both of them; both advised me when NOT to buy a property as well as when we had hit one they liked. Had it not been for their determined hard work, I would not have found a home I am thrilled with.”

Nicely done, gentlemen.
