The Bel-Air — wait, say it again, “Bel-AHHHHHir…” is one of the best places to call home on Turtle Creek, particularly if you want “condo” living but 360 degrees of separation betwixt you and your neighbor. This angelic unit at 3725 Turtle Creek, unit J, is a free-standing townhouse and the only one of it’s kind in that small complex of just 10 units. As if life just kept dropping perfection in our laps, it has an elegant staircase but also an elevator to move you around three stories. Me, I’d take the steps and give my arse the needed daily work-out, but for those infirm or of bad knees/hips/joints, there is an elevator installed. Plus the interiors are just knocked out to Fort Worth. You get hardwood floors, moldings galore, sound and media system, an elegant curved staircase, two fireplaces, a real study with a plethora of bookcases, great storage, a butlers pantry, morning room, plantation shutters, vaulted and beamed ceilings, gorgeous decked out gourmet kitchen, first floor center courtyard, and walk-ability to the Katy Trail, West Village, Kalita Humphreys, even Uptown. If you want to stay home and enjoy the outdoors in private, there are three outdoor entertaining areas including the top floor balcony with majestic views.
The other delectable thing is you are not sacrificing size to live among the high rise jet set. This pup is a whopping 4432 square feet, larger than most homes. It has four bedrooms, four and a half baths, and three living areas plus a study. The Bel-Air was built in 2000, by the awesome Nixon-Breckenridge duo (which is now Alan Nixon), so the townhome is rather energy efficient and even has a Geothermal HVAC. Oh yes, this is a one-owner unit.
Your neighbors have homes ranging from 3302 square feet to 5157, with three to five bedrooms. So you are not buying the biggest baby on the block. The Bel-Air was built with great details and exterior touches of stone, wrought iron, heavy doors and welcoming gas lights. Since every unit was custom built, no two are cookie-cutter alike. This perfect unit is being marketed by the adorable Brad Kimple of the Ben Jones Group at Allie Beth Allman for $1,199,000.
