Hello beautiful Turtle Creek condo that has been on the market since last July. Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s got the most gorgeous condo of them all? I’d put my money on Neal Stewart any day! The veteran Dallas designer and former showroom owner just rocks and divides his time between Dallas and Honolulu with a condo he owns there with his partner, Allen Carrell. This is his private pad at the Vendome. Now here’s one of the the biggest secrets in the RE biz: ALWAYS buy, if you can, the personal house or condo of an architect, designer or high end custom home builder, like the one’s on Candy’s Approved Builder list. Why? These people love homes and they LOAD THEM UP!
A Military Man, but He’s No General Petraeus: Tom and Gina Branch Make Real Estate Deals As Easy As Staying at the Hilton
The Branch Team was recently named as Top Residential Real Estate Producers in Dallas by D Magazine. The dynamic duo of Tom and Gina Branch were recognized for closing more than $15 million in sales in 2011. Tom and Gina go way back to DallasDirt days with Candy. We chatted recently with Tom Branch for updates and to find out more about their special approach to real estate sales.
Check out that view! A commenter recently said that the condo and townhome market in Dallas wasn’t healthy enough to surpass the value of single-family home ownership. To answer that assertion, I give you 3505 Turtle Creek Blvd. Unit 12G at the Vendome on Turtle Creek. Just less than 2,000 square feet of stunning! Continue reading
`I LOVE Kelli and Gerald Ford’s Turkish Bath in the basement over there on Turtle Creek. But on Beverly, you can get 6550 feet with everything, and I do mean everything PLUS wine in the basement for way less than the cost of a tree-house on Turtle Creek: $2,950,000. This circa 1929 bambino was completely, lavishly remodeled and rebuilt in 2010 with huge formals, gorgeous sweeping staircase, study, family, gourmet kitchen, enormous master suite with spa bath extraordinaire, all en suite baths in each of the five bedrooms, plus media room up on the third floor with kitchenette. The yard is huge for Highland Park — .29 of an acre — and the oversized two car garage is covered with a two-bedroom, 962 square foot guest house. Best of all, on days like today in Dallas, you don’t need water, you need wine: go down to the 159 square foot wine cellar where it is nice and cool, pop open a bottle of Prosecco, and that’s the way to beat the heat.
Gerald Ford’s Amazing Highland Park Mansion Featured on HGTV with Kelli Ford Showcasing Their Basement Turkish Spa
I am very curious as to why designer Kelli Ford, the gorgeous Dallas, Texas-based designer wife of banker billionaire Gerald Ford, who lives over there at 6601 Turtle Creek in the Honeypot of Highland Park, would be all so eager to showcase what lurks below the Ford household: an orgasmic 25,000-square-foot Turkish bath with a 12-person cedar sauna, an immsersion pool, a deluxe wine room and a home theater. Right there on Turtle Creek!
Memorial Day House Candy to Last All Week: 4001 Turtle Creek, The Blue-Roofed Show Stopper, Goes on the Market
You know this home, you’ve probably almost crashed your S65 into the Porsch at the corner of Turtle Creek and Avondale as you ooohhed and aaahhed over 4001 Turtle Creek. That is the shockingly white, exquisitely redone 1920′s Mediterranean beauty with the blue-tiled roof.
Fame Slept Here: Condo Once Owned by the Late Margaret Hunt Hill Up For Foreclosure at 3525 Turtle Creek Blvd.
Update, 9:17 p.m. Bruce Tomaso at the Dallas Morning News was kind enough to give us a link, and now we hear from the folks at 3525 that Mrs. Hunt actually owned three units in this building on the 13th floor, but only two (the B/C units) are listed for foreclosure. Mrs. Hunt, says Lee T. Wilkirson, owned B/C and also D, but D was sold as a separate unit:
