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…

3700 Euclid exterior 1All eyes have been on this stunning listing at 3700 Euclid, because almost every agent in town knew it was (a) beautiful, (b) stunning and (c) over $10 million. In fact, it was said that this sale could thrust Highland Park real estate into a whole new realm of Silicon-Valley like pricing. IF the purported buyer, Daniel Hunt, president of FC Dallas, son of the late Lamar Hunt  his brother Clark is listed as owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, but the Hunt’s family’s sports holdings are split equally among Lamar’s four children — two from his first marriage, Lamar Jr., and Sharron, and Clark and Dan from his second — paid asking price of $14,900,000 (reduced a whole swallow from $15,995,000) or anywhere near that, we are talking $1,065.00 per square foot. Sweet.

We didn’t get that, but we got $13,600,000. Or almost $973 a square foot. How do you like that, Highland Park?3700 Euclid exterior
