Bluffview Home Designed by Dilbeck Featured on Modern Dallas TV Show

Dave Perry-Miller and Julie Boren appeared on the latest edition of Modern Dallas TV to discuss their new listing in Bluffview, 4605 Watauga Road.

Designed by noted architect Charles Dilbeck, the four-bedroom home is “an absolutely exceptional example of someone at the top of their career creating something really, really, exceptional,” Perry-Miller says during the interview with Modern Dallas publisher Jeff Levine. Although the house started out with beautiful proportions and design, Perry-Miller adds that Bodron + Fruit, the acclaimed architecture and design firm, “took it to another level.”

Despite those updates, Boren — who is intimately familiar with the property — points out that the fireplaces in the living room and study date to the house’s construction in 1954. She also tells Levine about the cabana being a complete home unto itself, and she describes the privacy the homeowner is afforded via the extensive landscaping.

The Texas Rangers pulled off a blockbuster deal this week, acquiring Philadelphia Phillies ace Cole Hamels, who threw a no-hitter the last time he pitched. As excited as we are about this news as baseball fans, we’re more excited as Realtors. Hamels is going to need a place to live, and we’re here to help.

Hamels reportedly sold a five-bedroom home in Newtown Square, Pa., last year that was listed for $1.55 million. Based on that number of bedrooms and that price range, here are four houses that Hamels and his wife, Heidi, may want to see when they get to town. Bonus: All of these Preston Hollow-area properties are just minutes away from the homes of Adrian Beltre and Yu Darvish. Those long commutes to Arlington would be more bearable while carpooling, right?

11145 Lawnhaven

11145 Lawnhaven Road has a spacious patio that features two living areas, a dining area, and a fireplace. The master suite and a guest suite are downstairs, as is a study. Three bedroom suites upstairs are complemented by a playroom, a homework area, a media room, and a snack station. Justin Easterling is offering the home for $1,650,000.


9006 Rockbrook Drive is a unique custom home with an award-winning floor plan. There are 11-foot ceilings throughout the first floor, which includes a rare downstairs media room. Walls of glass in every room showcase the custom pool area. Rick Adams is offering the home for $1,500,000.

6615 Brookshire

6615 Brookshire has two bedrooms (the master and a guest suite) downstairs. There are three more bedrooms upstairs, plus a den and a bonus room that could be a fitness studio or a media room. Multiple rooms provide views of the beautifully landscaped pool. Julie Boren is offering the home for $1,225,000.

5425 Springmeadow

5425 Springmeadow Drive is marked by exquisite craftsmanship. From the French doors in the den, master, and breakfast room to the built-in shelves in the den and the dual master closets, attention to detail prevails. Debbie Sherrington is offering the home for $1,150,000.
