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.

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
