It is really a sad, sad story. This guy gets to be mayor of one of America’s largest cities at the age of 31. He resigns in 2008, pleads guilty to obstruction of justice in a scandal involving sexually explicit text messages and an extramarital affair with his chief of staff. The Democrat spents 14 months in prison for violating probation in that case after a judge finds he failed to report assets that could be put toward his $1 million restitution to Detroit.
The Hicks Crespi Estate is Now the Most Expensive Home for Sale in The U.S. Could They Get More Than They Are Asking?
Comparison shopping. I’m checking with my friends at Realtor.com, but looking over this list from last April of 2012 compiled by the good folks at Forbes.com, and I mean really good folks because Morgan Brennan gave me lots of link love last week, it looks like that $135 million price tag for the Hicks-Crespi Estate is the new high for not just Dallas real estate, but U.S. real estate.
The home was designed by architect Michael Malone, and was once 5,963 square feet of cast-in-place concrete, with interiors by Emily Summers, and a polychrome mural on the dining room walls by Sol Lewitt. Here’s how you “sell” wall art: the buyers pay for the painting, or you just paint over it with Sherwin William’s best. The home on one of Highland Park’s most coveted streets was published in the January 2006 issue of the now also defunct House&Garden Magazine. Sigh. Asking price was: $5,995.000. Then down she went.
It’s my mansion and I LOVE it! This is what we call a STEAL! Darling uber contemporary condo at 3883 Turtle Creek Blvd., otherwise known as Twenty-One Turtle Creek Condos, unit 701 is a one-bedroom, one bath, one living area deal — 862 square feet in all. You do get a garage spot, too. The view is like Za Za Gabor used to say, “I just adore a Pent House view!”. The unit is way over-designed inside, which is great for the buyer: museum sculpted walls, Brazilian floors, art lighting & an open gourmet limestone kitchen with all stainless steel appliances. The living room is 16 by 24 feet long. Then there’s the master, 11 by 16, including a mammoth “executive closet” — I like the sound of that! — the size of DFW. I love love love the limestone bath and double shower.
Tuesday Two Hundred: Cute Cute M Streets Dollhouse. Maybe Tom and Laura Leppert Could Downsize Here?
At 1272 square feet, this precious little angel at 6027 Anita Street is a far cry from a 10,000 Preston Hollow manse and the Lepperts would sure miss that wild and crazy media room, no? You want to talk downsizing? How about two bedrooms, one bath, a great M Streets location in the Stonewall Jackson school district. This little baby was born in 1948, and has had much refreshing including new energy efficient windows, tankless hot water heater, remodeled single bath, and gleaming refinished hardwoods. There is also a brand new roof. Located on a quiet street, I think this home is a doll’s house of opportunity loaded with period architectural details, such as corded ceiling crown molding and high ceilings. And I just love the beige/white contrast in the hallway. Super close to parks, White Rock Lake, Whole Foods & the new Trader Joes. Check out the slide show photo gallery to see all the rooms: though I love the colors, I am ready to rip out that kitchen, how about you? I would like another bathroom. But beggars can’t be choosy: $244,500. This is one I just want to eat up!
Friday Five Hundred: What Does $500K Buy in Old Shepherd Place? Pecan Hardwoods and Interior Upgrades to the Nth Degree in Plano
I am told this is one of the most unusual homes in Plano. 5212 Blackhawk Drive, Plano, marketed by Sandy Donsky. (Not Scott Vann as I noted earlier, however, he is the brilliant agent who brought the home to my attention!) Custom built in 1989, it is a one owner home with significant upgrades — do not let that ordinary exterior fool you! You get 3549 square feet, five giant bedrooms, four and a half baths, formals, patio, three car garage, huge yard. There is no pool but plenty of room for one. I think the interiors are so lovely, and so different from most of the homes of this baby’s vintage. Here are some of the extras:
Here’s the thing about Museum Tower: you could buy here and never nail one piece of art to the walls because your views are your art! From 1800 square feet to the 9,000 square foot penthouse — who will buy that? Here is the smallest model, 2800 square feet of French art deco from 1930′s France with super clean lines and ebony wood. Marco French pulled in Donald Judd, Allan Knight and Nancy Corzine to fill a 2800 square foot residence designed to show buyers how the simplicity and elegance of the space does not have to interfere with anything they might own. It can, he says, house anyone’s tastes and collection and many, many rich colors. (Or none at all when you’ve got that vibrant red across the street!) This is a modern building that is not cold and sterile; it is warm, inviting and yes, antiques feel right at home. Very much at home, like the yummy fabric on these chairs. French has also said the building is so beautifully proportioned that even the “smallest” units do not seem small. His 2800 square foot model is one of the smallest, and at $800 a square foot will only set you back $2.2 million, but with the incredible expanse of glass — even the balconies are sliding sheets of glass with no joints, no baseboards– rooms seem endless. At night, the inside and outside just blend together and it is really like living in the sky. With art, or no art!
