Everyone knows the old saying: “If these walls could talk.” For a minute, let’s imagine “these walls” are located somewhere within Dallas’ much-beloved Lakewood. Given the rich, nearly 100-year history of the neighborhood, it’s likely they have some very interesting things to say. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate looks forward to helping give several of them voice this November as Underwriter and Title Sponsor of the Auction Party for the 2015 Lakewood Home Festival.
If you’ve ever driven by one of the seven homes on tour this year and longed to know its secrets — or even simply admired it from afar – this weekend will be the perfect opportunity to satisfy your curiosity. Fall is in full swing, and the holidays are on the horizon, making it a great time to enjoy them in all their seasonal splendor.
The theme of this year’s tour is “The Legacy of Lakewood,” honoring 75214’s architectural diversity. The featured homes range from a new build, crafted in a modern Hollywood Regency style, to an early ‘20s tudor, which has been painstakingly preserved down to the original light bulbs. Each and every one is a tangible reminder why so many seek to create their own history in this highly coveted corner of town.
Because Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate knows intimately all that makes Lakewood so special to our city, we’re thrilled to once again help make the tour possible.
The disco-themed “Friday Night Fever” auction party we’re sponsoring at the Belo Mansion features both silent and live auctions. Monies raised there and from general admission ticket sales go directly to supporting students of Lakewood Elementary, JL Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School in the form of materials, computers, and enrichment programs.
Last year’s festival was attended by close to 4,000 people and raised $155,000 for the three schools, setting a new record. We’re confident this year will be even more successful. Tickets for both the Auction Party and the Tour can be purchased online here. There is a discount for buying in advance.
Please make plans to join us and discover “The Legacy of Lakewood” for yourself! This year there’s even a special new candlelight tour Saturday night with a chance to meet the homeowners.
