Homeowners around the nation are poised to receive enthusiastic knocks from mini monsters, princesses and superheroes who’ve descended upon their neighborhoods in search of sugary gold. In the spirit of Halloween, Dave Perry-Miller & Associates present five treat-worthy porches.


The porch at 9441 Tarleton St. is great place for trick-or-treaters to mix and mingle, but check out the balcony, which just screams out for haunted hijinks. This four-bedroom home was designed by an architect, and it features abundant natural light and hardwoods throughout. There are views of White Rock Lake from the front yard, and the home is in proximity to the Dallas Arboretum, a dog park, and hike and bike trails.

The wraparound porch at 6207 Rex Dr. affords great views of the green space just beyond the property line of this corner lot. This one-owner custom build features two master suites (one on each level), billiards room, craft room, heated pool with color-changing lights, covered patio and lush landscaping. The home has art niches, abundant storage and surround sound.

4246 Northview Ln. is a five-bedroom home with a front porch large enough for dozens of your closest friends. This traditional two-story home, located near Hockaday, has features such as hand-scraped wood floors, chef’s kitchen, oversized bedrooms, three-car garage, and a backyard with fire pit and mature trees.

The Craftsman home at 915 Woodlawn Ave. was completely remodeled in 2013. The covered front porch is perfect for relaxing, and the swing adds a touch of charm. Situated on a large corner lot, the three-bedroom home has a gourmet kitchen with breakfast nook, updated windows and original hardwood floors. Outside you’ll find a large yard, outdoor sunshade, atrium glass doors and a raised garden bed.

The four-bedroom Red Oak Manor at 417 S. Denton St., located in Gainesville, blends historic design with modern conveniences. The grand wraparound porch is Halloween-party ready, with plenty of space for decorations and holiday festivities. The property features unique touches such as stained-glass windows, wooden pocked doors and six fireplaces throughout. Also on the property is a two-bedroom, one-bath apartment.
