Prepare to have your breath taken away. With every last detail designed and renovated by Mexico native and Dallas-based notable interior designer Gonzalo Bueno, this sleek Uptown condo is the ultimate in luxe and dreamy. From finish-out to furnishings, nothing has been overlooked.  And it can all be yours for a cool $8,000 a month.

We covered a very similar condo just a few weeks ago. That space was nice. This one is extraordinary.  Join us after the jump 2,387 square feet of exquisite design. And hey, if you want to make it yours on a more permanent basis, 1999 McKinney Avenue #404 is listed by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Missy Woehr for $997,000.

Same great soaring 20-foot ceilings here, only this look turned out even more sleek and polished. Which comes as no surprise. After a down-to-the-concrete, seven-month renovation, Bueno and his team had renovated each aspect of this space. “They literally touched everything,” Woehr said. “This renovation is a complete transformation. Doors, hardware, fixtures. Everything. He took that classic urban loft and gave it a real sophisticated edge.”

Because this lease comes furnished, you’ll want to take a moment to appreciate not just the interior architecture but the furnishings. “Gonzalo did not only all of the hard surface selections, but also the furniture. Some of it came from the owner’s collection, but he had a huge hand in all the selections. All the case goods, all the draperies, rugs, and everything.”

Wide-plank wood floors have miraculously escaped hand-scraping  and the carpeting upstairs is all hand-cut sisal.

In the kitchen, custom-fabricated Cantoni cabinetry, Miele integrated refrigerator, Bosch gas range, and Blanco integrated sink and faucet make this designer name-dropping at its best.

Throughout, the concrete walls have been finished out with museum-smooth drywall to showcase art, but plenty of industrial details remain. The art stays, by the way. The owner’s collection comes as part of the lease, and it’s rather extraordinary. If you missed the art, you should take a moment to scroll back through the photography and have a better look.

Next up, this hallway! With the concealed doors and that Phillip Jeffries wallpaper, I almost didn’t have words. Woehr did, though. “It’s just yummy,” she said. And like our previous specimen, the view from that loft office remains hard to beat.

The master suite is also, to borrow Woehr’s term, just yummy. And the custom closet haunts my dreams (in a good way).

Finally, the downstairs guest suite comes smartly designed with a Murphy bed, and the attached bathroom proves to be just as lovely as the master bath.

As an added bonus, the unit sits on the fourth floor of the building, giving it not only treetop views, but same-floor access to the pool and entertainment area.
