Share News:

Our Splurge: Sylvia Scott has listed 3401 Lee Parkway Apt 803 for $665,000.

Dallas real estate may be cooling down, but these high-rise condos are hot, hot, hot! For this week’s Splurge vs. Steal we take you downtown to the best that money can buy … on a budget. Which would you choose The Mayfair splurge or The Metropolitan steal? Be sure to let us know in the comments.

Splurge: High-Rise With Views Of Lee Park And Turtle Creek For $665K

This condo caught our eye, not only for the price but for the virtual staging. As it turns out, listing agent Sylvia Scott of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty showcased those images for good reason.

“I used the virtual images provided by a company who works exclusively for Sotheby’s International Realty and available only to Briggs Freeman locally, to show buyers how a little paint and different furnishings can completely transform the look of the unit, which had been more traditionally furnished by the previous tenant,” Sylvia explains. “I specifically had a client who could not figure out what to do with the alcove in the living room and I was able to show her these photos to give her an idea of what to do with that space. Providing tools like this can help buyers see the potential in an otherwise great opportunity!”

Opportunity Knocks

The two-bedroom, two-full-bathroom unit has beautiful views of Lee Park and the Turtle Creek area. “This unit is different than several of the others in The Mayfair in that a previous owner has opened up the kitchen to the rest of the unit so as to be able to take in all the views. The master closet was also enlarged to provide more space,” Sylvia says.

Tons of Potential

Whether you are looking for a move-in ready space that is warm and elegant, or want something you can put your stamp on, this eighth-floor property is worth a look.

Exceptional Building Amenities

Plus there are great building amenities such as a Rooftop Sky Club, state of the art fitness center, serene pool, and staff. Additionally, the washer and dryer and patio furniture are available for purchase as part of contract negotiations.


Made For Lock-And-Leave Buyers

“The unit is perfect for empty nesters and those who might enjoy a lock-and-leave lifestyle or for a second/third homeowner. The Mayfair is a full-service building with very sophisticated amenities in a quiet area of Turtle Creek,” she adds.
