4782 - View 2

It’s not often you can say, “I can see the Four Seasons from my house.” At 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 9, you’ll be able to say it from each of three neighboring properties at The Enclave in Las Colinas.  These homes not only see the Four Seasons, they’re privy to all the amenities of the hotel.

For golf enthusiasts, each home also fronts the Four Seasons TPC golf course, specifically, the Par 3 17th hole.  Because of owners entertainment prowess, it’s locally known as the “party hole” to tournament players and attendees.

Each home is being marketed by Leigh Ann Barrick, top producing broker/associate with Keller Williams.  Let’s review what you’ll be able to experience on Thursday night.

4782 - Exterior 1

Please join us for our multi-home Staff Meeting open house event up in Las Colinas on March 9 at The Enclave.  For those just tuning in, this is the first time we’ve had a simultaneous, triple open house tour of over $7 million in real estate. In case you missed homes one and two you can click here and here. In addition to viewing these properties, we’ll also meet and listen to the general manager of the Four Seasons golf club who will discuss what it’s like living on a golf course in Four Seasons-land (wonderful, I’d expect … it’s the Four Seasons).

Our final property is 4782 Byron Circle and it’s the perfect bookend being the next-door neighbor of our first home (Map). All three properties are listed with Leigh Ann Barrick, top producing broker/associate with Keller Williams.  This home, on a third of an acre, is 5,123 square feet and contains four bedrooms with five full and one half bathroom. Built in 2001, it’s listed for $2.395 million.  Like its neighbor at 4786 Byron Circle, this home has 17th (party) hole views of the Four Seasons TPC gold course where the Byron Nelson tournament is held each May.

We’re thrilled to host you and your closest real estate-obsessed friends, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t thank the evening’s co-sponsor, John Kelly, branch manager with Guaranteed RateHe’s a genius with mortgages and we couldn’t be happier to have him aboard!

Sitting on roughly a half-acre, this home has plenty of space for kids or grandkids to roam. It’s definitely a luxury in this property within the gated Enclave community in Las Colinas.  If you’re just checking in, this is the second of three we’re featuring as part of our March 9 Staff Meeting event at the Enclave in Las Colinas that circles the Four Seasons resort and golf club.  Click here to see what you’ve missed.

This home at 4774 Byron Circle is more English mixed with a bit of gothic (Map).  Listed with Keller Williams Luxury Member Leigh Ann Barrick for $2.85 million, this 2003 home contains 6,690 square feet encompassing five bedrooms with five full and one half bathroom … 14 rooms in total.

I know it’s winter and the thought of venturing north makes you zip up your metaphorical coat, but Las Colinas isn’t too far, is it? Good.  Because CandysDirt.com and Keller Williams star Leigh Ann Barrick are hosting a Staff Meeting event on March 9th at three homes in the exclusive, gated Enclave community that borders the Four Seasons TPC golf course.  In addition to touring these expansive homes, we’ll be treated to a presentation by Four Seasons Club Manager Jim Kern on the benefits of living in Four Seasons turf. (And I do like me some Four Seasons!)

CandysDirt staff meeting

It’s one of the most luxurious homes in Highland Park — or Texas — and we’ve got your ticket to tour at the next CandysDirt staff meeting.

Sitting on almost an acre at 3509 Euclid Ave., this Mediterranean villa is over 18,000 square feet of sophisticated spaces, with six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, six half baths, four living rooms, three dining rooms, and 11 fireplaces on three stories, built in 2012.

On Thursday, Feb. 16 at 5:30 p.m., we’ll be there to take in the views and enjoy this private, luxe retreat near Armstrong and Abbot avenues in one of the toniest parts of Highland Park.

Just how exquisite is this villa? How about a wine grotto with tasting room, outdoor putting green, indoor golf simulator, sprawling 10-car garage, and a state-of-the-art gym with a steam and aromatherapy room? And the backyard is positively swoon-worthy, with a Tuscan cabana with a sitting room and private baths, sparkling swimming pool and spa, fountains, and a fire pit in the pool.

This masterpiece is the work of Fusch Architects, builder John Sebastian of Sebastian Construction Group, and Harold Leidner Landscape Architects. It is newly listed by JP Piccinini and Monica Shovlin with JP & Associates Realtors for $18 million.

How about a sneak peek before our CandysDirt staff meeting? I’d love to show you this property…

6610 Nonesuch ext

Growing up the youngest of eight children, Steve Holy worked hard to distinguish himself, pouring his hopes and dreams into his music, achieving success with his breakout hit “Good Morning Beautiful” in 2002. Since then, Holy has done what recording artists do: write, record, and repeat. It’s that focus and hard work that netted this beautiful abode in one of the most exclusive areas of Lakewood.

But, as artists are wont, Holy is shaking things up and putting his beautiful home — sited on the original estate of Neiman Marcus founder Stanley Marcus — on the market. It has warmth, character beyond its years, and an impressive location — truly, “Love Don’t Run” from this Lakewood home! And tonight, you can tour it with Holy himself.

We’re hosting a CandysDirt.com Staff Meeting at Steve Holy’s incredible Nonesuch Court home, listed with Lakewood’s premier agent, Lee Lamont. Jump to find out how you can attend!

6610 Nonesuch extBecause Love Don’t Run

We have written about the homes of country singer Steve Holy before, both his previous house (which he tells me he essentially built with his hands plus help from a contractor friend) and his current home that is on the market with Lee Lamont, the Lord of Lakewood real estate.

Well, guess what? That home is where we are having our next CandysDirt.com Staff Meeting! That’s right, in Steve Holy’s Lakewood house. Pinch me.

If you know anything about music, you know that Steve is a local guy — grew up right on Interstate 30, he told me — born here in 1972. He grew up the youngest of eight children. His dad, he says, was a tough guy who worked in the oil fields.

“I’ve been working since I was five,” Steve told me, “in our family, if you had any time at all to goof around, then you had time to work.”

When he was 19, in 1991, Steve entered the Mesquite Opry music competition. His voice caught the attention of Wilbur Rimes, the father of country singer LeAnn Rimes, who had lived in Garland. Eight years later Steve was signed to Curb Records.

So while his first Dallas house on Vickery was built just as his music career was budding, this home, located in a tucked away nook of gated homes a quick walk from the Stanley Marcus house in Lakewood, was his achievement house — 6610 Nonesuch Court.

Steve took me on a tour. Come next Tuesday, if you RSVP, you can go on that same tour and, hint hint, Steve may even be there! (more…)
