4401 Windsor Ridge Drive LC extWell, this is the “it’s August everyone’s on vaca” edition of MMM. It comes to you straight from Las Colinas and the Four Season’s TPC, where you can live like a billionaire for a couple million. Seriously, you would be surprised at the smart, serious wealth out here. It’s a zip to D/FW or your private jet, it’s within walking distance of the Four Seasons, and it’s sitting one of the greatest golf courses in North Texas. Only $2,775,000. Listed with Bernice and David Maez of Vivo Realty in Plano, who also shot this amazing video for our viewing pleasure. It actually shows actors living in the home, entertaining and enjoying the full view of the course. Let’s call it “A Day In The Life of 4401 Windsor Ridge Drive”: It’s a wonderful marketing tool they employ on all their luxury homes!

4401 Windsor Ridge Drive ext windows4401 Windsor Ridge Drive is like a vacation home unto itself, maybe better. If you’ve been the Byron Nelson and gawked at the gorgeous, huge-windowed homes flanking the course, usually robust with parties, wine and drink, you may have spotted 4401 and fallen in love.

Loaded up like one of Erich Spangenberg’s Christie’s auction 18 wheelers, the house has absolutely everything you’d find in a $15 million estate on Park Lane. I’d like to get my hands on some of those bottles in the wine cave (see video below): I’m told the cellar alone has one million poured into it, and we haven’t even started talking about the wine.

Another thing the quiet rich love about this area is that it’s private and tucked away. This secure, gated community is great for privacy and lock and leave, but you’re not in the boonies. You are within walking or golf-cart-ride distance of the distinguished Four Seasons Resort and Spa.

A winding, anchoring stairway curves gracefully, facing the golf course. There are five ginormous bedrooms, six living areas, seven full baths and three half meaning each bedroom has it’s own bath and the master has two, a his and her’s. There is also a steam shower in the master. I am also very happy to see the return of the bidet to the master — when this home has one,was built all luxury homes had one, and I do wish I’d see more these days. There is a room for everything you need in life in this house: exercise, library with walls of shelves, media room, game room with wet bar, guest room suite, and so many balconies I lost count. The master is large enough, 33 by 16, with a separate sitting area on top of that space and enough room to etch out a beauty salon in the bath.4401 Windsor Ridge Dr LC master

Do not laugh: I know of a home being built in Dallas with a beauty salon in it. Champ d’Or had one. I think it’s a splendid idea.

The center island is equipped to handle and keep hot a buffet meal for a hundred. The outdoor patio is covered, sports a fireplace and barbecue grill. The media room has a neon lite dome ceiling, gold leaf doors and mouldings, and all the sound/tech accoutrements. My favorite room, the wine cellar, features tres authentique stone imported right from France. Viva vino! It is the most popular room in the house come August.
