While at Luxury Portfolio International in Las Vegas this week, I tried to stay away from Blackjack and the Craps tables and soak in all the hot deets for you from the world’s leading experts on everything luxury.

Rock star power and LOCATION! 5210 Meaders is in Mayflower Estates, that area of huge, leafy, stretched-out acreages north of Walnut Hill Lane, south of Royal, east of Inwood that I think are among the best lots in Dallas.

If you are really keen on sleek Austin-style, Hill Country clean, this home will rattle your nerves in the best possible way.
