A Houseboat in Dallas? You Betcha, Wedding Planks and Less than 1500 Square Feet in the Urban Reserve
Last week I saw that Dan Shipley’s brilliant design team over at Shipley Architects got posted on ArchDailey, one of my fave sites. This home is located over in the Urban Reserve, Diane Cheatham’s ahead-of- it’s-time green enclave of zero-lot line modern residences near both a light-rail station and the Northaven Trail. The area’s location was once a landfill and you enter the area via a nice neighborhood of middle class homes off Forest Lane, east of central. There is proximity to DART and the zero-lot-line community encourages space-efficient house designs. Shipley’s home for Rick & Julie Fontenot is a mere 1490 square feet, the size of a Preston Hollow master closet! While this home is not for sale, plenty over there is and bears a look/see.
Our $19.5 Million Monday Morning Millionaire is Pending: this Dallas Real Estate Market is Sizzling!
Remember this little piece of paradise in the heart of University Park Estates? The one with the putting green and in-ground trampoline? Well, go on over there and jump for joy because that puppy has a hot contract on it. Yep, $19.5 million is the ASKING price. I hope Doug Newby is booking his next Euro cruise. Why Doug and not Erin Mathews? Because with this estate property moving, the Hicks Crespi estate can not be far behind.
Monday Morning Millionaire: Erin Mathews’s Latest Prize Listing Made it on Homes of the Rich and Famous at $8,495,000
Do you read Homes of the Rich? It’s one of my fave luxury real estate drool sites, and it was founded by a 20 year old kid named Kenny. Maybe he’s 21 now. Anyhoo, Kenny picked up Erin Mathews newest listing last week, a stunning French Chateau at 4617 Meadowood Road in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, TX. Technically, this is more towards Bluffview — Meadowbrook is in the honey pot. But nothing shabby about this circular street and in fact, I like this area even better than the honeypot because it’s further away from the tollway.
It was like a coming out party this afternoon over at 3505 Turtle Creek Blvd. as every high end agent in town tossed on a fur wrap and checked out the former home of Bill and Margot Winspear. Mrs. Winspear now lives in a smaller unit in the same building. You cannot blame her: this one is 14,740 whopping square feet and they were not kidding when they said 24 foot ceilings! I got lost five times and felt like I was in a Matrix-like version of the game CLUE. For some reason, I kept wandering back into the Billiards Room. Everyone marched through, from Claire Dewar and Nancy Holloway and the whole darn team, half of Briggs-Freeman Sothebys, Erin Mathews and David Nichols (air kisses!) Dawn Rejebian, Debbie Ingram, Katye Sloan, some of US led almost by the hand by listing agent Ralph Randall lest you (ME) get lost. These photos turned out better than I expected given the gloomy day, and Ralph promises o-quality photos soon. Overheard: “At this new reduced price ($6,695,000), whoever buys it is basically pocketing $4 million.” Continue reading
Give Me a Break: What Dallas Real Estate Agents Are Saying About Jason Sheeler’s Tex Mo Tell-All On Dallas Real Estate
Like my mother used to tell me, don’t ever give it away for free. Smart Texas Monthly. You have to buy an issue to read Jason Sheeler’s profile of super agent Erin Mathews, Give Me Shelter, in the current issue of Texas Monthly. I suggest you buy, read, and then read it again to capture the picture of what he so very well painted of the Honeypot real estate world, Area 25, where the refrain goes like this: no one ever gets fat, ugly, poor, or has an underwater mortgage.
