So, I had a plumbing disaster at my White Rock Lake-area postwar traditional, so I’m reporting from our Forney bureau today as a means of escape from a horde of noisy dryer fans and dehumidifiers.
Like we usually do when it comes to dissin’ and discussin’ high-priced real estate in Dallas Your Mama gave the deliciously dishy Dallas-based property gossip Candy Evans a ringy-dingy and asked if she thought there was much of a market for a $135,000,000 house in Dallas.
There may very well be a market for an $135 million house in Dallas, but it’s a small one, as Candy said. You never know, right? Still, as Your Mama pointed out, you’re going to need big bucks and a lot of water to run this place. Natch:

Glendora seems to be the street du jour, no? And I love a good hip-pocket listing. It gives a property a certain exclusive cache, doesn’t it?
What’s better is a hip-pocket listing I love, and that’s 6446 Glendora. This home, built in 2001 by Hawkins Welwood, has 7,000 square feet of indoor space that manages to feel cozy, not cold. That’s thanks in part to the use of muted colors and natural finishes, and especially exposed wood beams.
I love quirky houses! If a home has character, a neat feature, or some really defining characteristic, I love it!
While it’s no Bio-Dome, this concrete-shell house has two bedrooms, two baths, and 2,100 square feet. You’ll love the secluded location, but you’ll have to learn to live with few windows in this home. I love the upstairs loft, though.
Jenni Stolarski and Rob Puckett of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s are marketing two Stevens Park Village homes that back up to one another and sit on the fifth green of Stevens Park Golf Course —2036 Old Orchard and 2041 Mayflower — as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a family to be really close without moving in with each other.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that the relaunch of “Dallas” — TV show that was popular just about everywhere except Japan — will be on TNT come June 13. But if you have almost $4 million burning in your pocket and a hankering to own the home where J.R., Bobby, and the rest of the Ewing family had frequent screaming matches, drank themselves into oblivion, and sabotaged each other, this Willow Bend Country mansion is for you!

I’ve told you about this house before: A Man Cave deep in the heart of Preston Hollow, with more baths than days of the week, and SEVEN living areas and fireplaces. YU DARVISH could totally afford it! Now you can win $1000 by coming to a fun party — food by Adelmo’s – at 5242 Park Lane, the beautiful striking home built by Bella Custom Homes. It’s a perfect example of LUSH Preston Hollow living with a capital “L”.
As I told you either late last night (I blog into the wee hours) or early this morning, Champ D’Or, arguably the most significant piece of real estate on the market in the greater Dallas area, will be sold at auction March 30. It has been on the market for ten years. The auction will be conducted by a New York City-based house, Concierge Auctions, right here in the Lone Star State, AT Champ D’Or. Do not think this will be a circus: only qualified buyers will be allowed in the gates. I pride myself in giving you news before it is news, but the press release is not yet written, though Rubenstein Public Relations will be handling PR, and the website for Champ is under creation as we speak. So all I can tell you at this point is that you can see the property live on the Concierge site next Thursday. While you are at it, check out the other goodies Concierge has to offer, including one of my favorite of all ski spots, Spanish Peaks at Big Sky Montana. I cried when I heard that Spanish Peaks had filed Chapter 7, but Concierge is auctioning off some of the famed ski resort’s glorious residences. (Tune into SecondShelters.com soon for more on that bankruptcy.) Oh, Concierge is also auctioning a home at the venerable Yellowstone Club, too.
Candy’s Sale of the Week: Expanded Master, Lowered Price of Santa Barbara Style in Old Preston Hollow
I have written about this house before, and I could write about it every single day of my life. It gets my vote for one of the most beautiful homes in Dallas on the INSIDE as well as out. And then talk about location! 5424 Edlen is perched on one of the most desirable corners in Old Preston Hollow: Edlen and Hollow Way. Edlen was named after one of the developer’s two daughters, long ago. We used to live within two blocks of this fabulous home, which is how I know all this stuff. We even knew the people who lived in the home prior to it being torn down in the early 1990′s to create this temple of architectural beauty. Continue reading
If we didn’t learn our lesson last year, let’s learn it now. It’s much better to stay home in a three million plus palace with a secret chamber and man-cave and WATCH the game on a huge wide-screen TV (while shooting POOL!) than to brave the ice and snow. And what a man-cave this home holds! 6700 plus square feet all devoted to the guys –well, at least in one room! This is a custom build by noted builder Sharif & Munir with exquisite finishes and their signature Italianate style architecture. Walnut, walnut everywhere. Four bedrooms, five and a half baths, multiple living areas. The gorgeous gourmet kitchen and breakfast room overlook a beautiful outdoor living area, plus what everyone needs, a cozy Keeping Room. Get this secret sleeping chamber: the Library is loaded with shelves and a full bath, while a custom painting swings to the side to reveal a queen bed. Downstairs is the gameroom or man-cave, complete with full size pool table. And in case your man happens to dabble on the stove, there is also a full commercial kitchen down there. Up the grand staircase are four bedrooms and a most elegant, pristine master with spa bath, custom closet and exercise room. Do not worry about not getting up the stairs after you’ve had one too many in that man-room: there’s a commercial elevator, and a full geothermal system lets you rock the AC at 60 degrees during the middle of August without a pang of guilt. After all, guys need something to cool them off….3317 Dartmouth. Have always loved the street name, obviously. Your man will LOVE it at $3,695,000 reduced from $3,995,000!
