This stunning home at 7714 Fisher Road was built in 1994 but looks as timeless as a mansion overlooking the Pacific in Pebble Beach. You have almost one super landscaped acre, yielding the upstairs Master with a large deck and perfect lake views. A classic floorplan offers 4169 square feet with three bedrooms, two and a half baths, three living areas and even, yes, columns. There is also a wine cellar, den, “bright” kitchen, and formals. About that “bright” kitchen: little early 1990′s feel to it, white cabinets and ceramic tile floors, but there is enough of a granite island slab to get in the “g-word”. This is a home where you will likely live outside, on three patios, and safely so: the driveway has a gated entrance so the dogs can roam free. Honestly, I just love the smooth lines of this house and with the incredible water views, it is very much like a home in Pebble Beach. Or, rather, excuse me, a mansion. Fraction of a Pebble Beach price tag, though, at $2,090,000.
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.
There’s Rafael Palmeiro asking for extra time to try and get his $40 million in debts settled. And here’s the Pebble Beach house he says will help him cover the interest payments on those debts if only he could sell it. It’s 1531 Riata Road and I went right by it this August when I was at Concours. Really great part of Pebble, too. Like the best vintage homes in Pebble and Carmel, it’s a 1920′s classic Mediterranean villa with pool on 1.65 forested acres above the Lodge at Pebble Beach with views of Carmel Bay. Talk about a honeypot of a location, but I still think he’s priced too high.
I was in Pebble Beach last week at the venerable Concours D’Elegance along with the glitterati of Jay Leno, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sherle Crow! When I saw Arnold, I steered away but snapped a pic. But Jay, dear Jay, we are becoming regular Concours buds. Last year, when my husband snapped the photo, Jay said “hey, old man, take your finger off the lens.” This year, the magic was “second homes.” He was particularly fascinated with Champs D’Or – “is this in France?” he asked, and the Residences at the Ritz Carlton.
It may be hotter than hell, and yes we have no oceans or beachfront. But our market is so nice and healthy compared to others, even the Gold Coast of Pebble Beach and Carmel. (Besides, the heat gives us a great reason to get away. I was freezing in Carmel, and never wore sunglasses.) Meantime, this home at 6146 Northaven went under contract. Original listing price was $479,900 reduced to $459,900 and I’m thinking sales price probably not too far off. Folks, when sellers lower the prices, buyers buy. Listed with Lee Lamont with Coldwell Banker. This is a nice solid ranch, great example of a North Dallas home on a slightly busy street, but those speedbumps on Northaven keep it manageable. I’m definitely seeing more pending signs here than I did in California.
His name is Leo M. Savino, a 28 year old former commercial real estate guy who is now building some amazing homes in the Park Cities. Did I say he is only 28? That is correct. Leo’s company is called Significant Buildings & Construction, and from what I’ve seen, he has an amazing eye cultivated by charming parents who educated him exquisitely. Anyhow, the home will be complete when I return from Pebble BEach, so get ready for a treat.
