Hot Property: 5638 Gaston Avenue

I’d be sold solely on the yellow door and dainty details, but what’s going on behind the façade is just as lovely. Beautifully renovated with exceptional attention to detail, every room in 5638 Gaston Avenue is teeming with personality. Stained glass windows and oriental rugs effortlessly cohabitate with high-tech showerheads and granite counters. And with a backyard that looks like it was made for entertaining, it would be easy to find ways to subtly reference my home’s history of attractiveness to a captive, party-going audience. “Yes, you may have another pig in blanket. And yes, you may admire one of Dallas’ most beautiful homes.”

New Turtle Creek Condos to Bring Elevated Luxury Living

Created by world-renowned architect Siamak Hariri and developed by the internationally acclaimed, Toronto-based builder Great Gulf, Ltd. Edition No. 2505 is set to break ground on Turtle Creek Boulevard and Fairmount Street sometime in 2016. The 20-story 100-unit tower “elevates all past notions of what luxury living can be.” With a uniquely organic, nature-inspired interior design by Diego Burdi of Burdifilek and sure-to-be stunningly landscaped terraces by Janet Rosenberg,  Ltd. Edition No 2505’s “estates in the sky” will certainly stand out.

The tower is Great Gulf’s first luxury condominium development in the U.S. and for good reason. Our city and its residents have always shown a great appreciation for luxury living and architecture, but more importantly, Great Gulf hopes to bring something entirely unique to Dallas’ local real estate. “Discriminating Dallas buyers looking for an alternative to the traditional low-rise luxury home will find it here,” Wein says in a statement.

The project will be represented by Katye Sloan and Jeffery Lester with Briggs Freeman.

Hot Property: 4636 Chapel Hill Road

I’ve been waiting for interior photos of this home since I first heard it was going on the market, and, not surprisingly, the Tuscan-inspired, waterfront villa did not disappoint. The home’s close proximity to White Rock Lake is emphasized in almost every room. Even your first steps through the entryway and into the 23-foot ceilinged great room reveal a wall of mahogany-clad, double glass doors with views of the backyard oasis.

If you’re a fan of Blue Print, the lovely little home furnishings shop on Fairmount Street, I can all but guarantee that you will fall madly, truly, and deeply in love with 4611 Belclaire Avenue. Recently taken to the studs, added on and rebuilt by Cynthia Collins, owner of Collins Interiors and one of the tastemakers behind Blue Print, this Highland Park home is dressed head to toe in Collins’ signature sophisticated style. Think pretty prints, a soft palette and, of course, the occasional modern artwork displayed in a perfectly well-lit room.

Hot Property: 6735 Westlake Avenue

Most older homes come with a bit of history, but this recently-listed 1927 Tudor in Lakewood comes with an abundance of fabulous memories. Built for Neiman Marcus patriarch Herbert Marcus when the department store was just 20-years-old, the 6,717-square-foot residence has played host to a variety of celebrities and dignitaries over the years. If the presence of Elizabeth Arden, past Vogue editor Edna Woolman Chase, and Mrs. J. P. Morgan doesn’t entice you, the fact that Bobby Ewing was run over in the driveway of 6735 Westlake (on the TV show Dallas) may help increase the allure.
