About Owner/Property Manager

I'm an author of 7 books, professional speaker and former Olympian. My wife is an entrepreneur and we have three teenage kids.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this estate in 1997

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Lakewood

This is the property Steve Miller grew up on. It needed a good deal of repair so we completely redid the landscaping and built a brand new home in 2008. The back house is original and is where Steve Miller recorded with Boz Scaggs in their high school years.

What makes this estate unique

The home is designed for relaxation. A refuge from the big city. From the large open living room, to a covered loggia cooled by 5 fans, to a community sized pool and a 26' creek around a firepit area. Privacy, peace, and sharing our space with friends is what we enjoy about it. The massive Games Room has vaulted ceilings, 80' TV, pool table and dart board. We even have a large, self contained chicken coop way out back. Enjoy fresh eggs every morning.

Thanksgiving Reunion 2

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this beautiful estate near White Rock lake. A spacious 5 bedroom home, equipped with everything you could ever need. Comfortably slept our family of 10 out-of-towners, with lot's of room to entertain our Dallas relatives. Centrally located, 1 block to the lake, the owners provide bicycles for guests to ride. The owners are friendly & responsive - we feel like we're staying with old friends. Thanks so much you guys!

Beautiful "Italian" Retreat

Great location, lovely home. Large enough for our family of 10. Owners are a pleasure to deal with. Backyard is a dream. Feels like you're in Italy!

Perfect for family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful spacious home was perfect for our family gathering over Thanksgiving. We prepared a traditional Thanksgiving meal for 12. The kitchen had everything we needed (pots, pans, utensils, plates, 2 ovens). Plenty of room to entertain, great game room, beautifully furnished & comfortable. The owners are very accommodating and helpful - nice people. Located in the center of Dallas, a short block to White Rock lake with running/bike trails. Don't miss the Arboretum, on the other side of the lake. We highly recommend this home, and hope to stay here again for our next reunion in Dallas!

Didn't want to leave!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Tuscan style home is absolutely spectacular. A wonderful entertaining house. It has a HUGE backyard with a beautiful, large, refreshing pool. Multiple outdoor entertaining areas were perfect for the BBQ's we hosted. There is also a smaller house in the back with super cool history. Steve Miller and Boz Skaggs recorded music in there! It's also very close to White Rock Lake with miles of running, biking, paddle boarding, kayaking, etc. The house is impeccably decorated and has every modern convenience available. We would definitely stay here again!
