Agents Make Deposit at Dallas Furniture Bank’s Annual CHAIRity Friendraiser Luncheon


Getting people into a new home is, of course, what real estate agents do best. But sometimes taking things a step further is required. The Dallas Furniture Bank does exactly that by providing beds, tables, chairs and more, for the transitional homeless and others who either have nothing or have lost everything, and are making a new start.

The DFB’s mission is built on the premise that having a functional, legitimate place to lay your head and eat a meal can do wonders for one’s dignity and self-esteem. And we’re thrilled Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agents Dave & Peggy Millheiser and Christine McKenny have given of their own time and resources to support them in this mission.

Most recently, the trio served as sponsors for the Bank’s 11th Annual CHAIRity Friendraiser, which was held on Wednesday, February 17, at the Belo Mansion. Dave also serves on the DFB board and is chair of the marketing and development committee.

The event featured Stacey Bess, inspirational educator and author, as the speaker, and WFAA News Anchor Alexa Conomos was the emcee. The goal for the event was $125,000, and that amount was surpassed.

“Stacey Bess was absolutely amazing,” says Dave Millheiser. “Her message was so compelling and contagious — it served as a great reminder why we’re all behind the great work the Dallas Furniture Bank is doing.”

The Dallas Furniture Bank serves between 400 – 500 needy families a year (impacting approximately 2,000 individuals). Since beginning services in 2003, DFB has served over 8,800 individuals ranging from families transitioning from homelessness and domestic violence, seniors, veterans, refugees, and many others. In partnership with over 60 non-profit agencies throughout the community and specific outreach partners, DFB is the only non-profit organization in Dallas County whose sole mission is to provide basic furnishings to those transitioning to stability.

Kudos to the DFB and all participating agents for raising awareness about this one-of-a-kind organization!

 

Estate’s Classic Design Brings Tuscan Charm to Shores of White Rock Lake

Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate is proud to present a rare opportunity for waterfront living at White Rock Lake. The villa at 4636 Chapel Hill Road, which The Gromatzky Group is offering for $7,495,000, was inspired by a Tuscan farmhouse village concept with handcrafted design by architect Charles Travis.

A defined entry tower and bridge over a running brook anchor the courtyard, where entry to the great Room and gallery feels much like an ancient Italian village. The central court becomes a gathering place. But this is only half the story.

Once you enter this home, you are greeted by a breathtaking view of an enchanting outdoor wonderland through a 43-foot wall of mahogany-clad, double glass doors. A carefully scaled architectural stone fireplace extends to the 23-foot ceiling and divides the living area from the dining area. Wide-plank, reclaimed pine floors add to the nurturing, warm environment. Art collectors will enjoy specialized lighting to showcase pieces.

All rooms are sensitively placed to emphasize the special relationship to the water. The kitchen, family room, and game room all open to the outdoor loggias, dining area, cooking area, and infinity pool/spa. Intricately landscaped and terraced garden retreats, cut stone steps, and walkways to the lake are among the details that create a sense of tranquility.

The kitchen — with its full complement of modern appliances, 24-foot center island that seats seven, adjacent butler’s pantry, and timber beams — opens to the family room, where a fireplace extends the length and height of the wall. The study just down the hall opens to a central courtyard.

A romantic guest villetta with a stone fireplace and brick floors opens via a separate entrance to the courtyard. The owner’s bedroom suite has views of the lake, pool, and grounds, plus an additional private courtyard off the master bath.

Upstairs, you will find three additional bedroom suites and a comfortable living room opening to a stone balcony. Another key feature is the watch tower, which leads to a balcony with sweeping views of the grounds, sailboats on the lake, and the marina.
