Monday Morning Millionaire: We Are Real Sweet on the Sugar Building for the Ultimate Dallas Real Estate Live, Work, Play (and, Sometimes, Sleep)

3203 McKinney Ave extMayors are in Dallas from all over the USA, so we want to show them how walkable we can really be. Sure, we have glam high rises and great apartments going up faster than you can say “margarita”. Here’s one you may not have seen. And I don’t think you can get a sleeker, cooler hip office/work/play home than this, 3203 McKinney.

Perched right on the greatest part of McKinney Avenue, a hop skip and a jump down the street from Breadwinner’s cafe, is one of the neatest homes you have ever seen in Dallas. It’s the Sugar Building, a perfect place to live and/or  work above a bustling office in some of the coolest hip digs in town. Oh and tired of not having enough garage space, or perhaps I should say, not having ANY garage space, in Uptown? 3203 McKinney gets you a private underground garage for 9 cars, that’s right, NINE!

3203 McKinney office space The first floor has 5450 square feet of extraordinary office space including offices, a conference room and a kitchen. Up the elevator (or stairs) you land in a private entrance, that leads to only two townhome units, each about 3800 square feet. Enter the first, sleek unit, find a secondary bedroom to your immediate left. The first one has a huge open spread of living dining and kitchen, with a small room in the very front and gorgeous terrazzo floors. The kitchen is totally decked out with the best of the best: Bulthaup, Gaggeneau, Milele, SubZero, Thermador and Bosch. The whole building is smart-home wired. The dining and living are wide open and face walls of glass overlooking Dallas and Uptown, all leading to the terrace. The entire second floor is the decked out master with drop-down TV screen, and a glorious bath, including a huge open shower with pebble-stone tiles, a huge soaking jacuzzi tub that fills dramatically from the ceiling (yes! the ceiling!) , plus duo sinks, a commode and bidet. The second side has a totally different floor plan, still way cool and contemporary. The bedroom in this one is actually built into a corner and hidden with drapes, presumably so someone could sleep while someone still was working. The bed is built on a sliding platform for ease in making the bed. Makes me a little claustrophobic but hey, others may find it cozy. Cannot think of a more perfect home for someone in film, or who shoots a lot of video or photographs.3203 McKinney first apt LR

3203 McKinney master CUThe possibilities are so endless here. Asking $5,995,000. Buy it all, rent out all or a portion. Live in one unit. Or share it with a team.  Listed with Steven Beard at Dave Perry-Miller Intown, this pup will only set you back $5,995,000. But look at the views! PRICELESS and better than most downtown condos — oh whoops! There is talk that a Dream Hotel may be going in next door. Thank you, Steven Beard for another great listing!3203 McKinney terrace 1

    Oh my gosh, bathroom of my dreams! Gray and wood and NO GLASS!!! So perfect. This building is fabulous!

    Yes! And that tub fills right from the ceiling without splashing everything, like a very direct rainfall. Coolest bathroom ever!

  • Love the open spaces in the private areas.

  • Wonder whatever happened to the Dream hotel the Hampshire group was gonna put in next door to Sugar… Lots of talk about it couple yrs back- then nada. Can’t imagine they would’ve spent millions on the land and just shelve the project? The shack that was on that lot sold 6 yrs ago for over a mil, so the whole lot must’ve cost a LOT (forgive the pun.)
