When choosing high-rise real estate, what level provides your preferred views? Some people don’t want to get too high, opting for a tree-top skimming view that offers some privacy and shorter elevator rides. Others like that mid-building feel, that gives you a great feel for the horizon and keeps vertigo at bay. Others want a lofty perch from which to look down on their domain.
Me? I’m a middle-of-the-building gal, which is why I find this gorgeous unit inside The House so appealing. It’s our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
This listing, unit 1704 inside The House by Starck, is marketed by the queen of Dallas high-rise real estate, Nancy Martinez. Martinez just found her new brokerage home at David Griffin & Company Realtors after Virginia Cook Realtors folded last week.
“It has been a seamless transition so far to David Griffin,” Martinez shared. “David and colleagues have been incredibly welcoming and supportive. The company protocols are familiar because of David Griffin & Company’s affiliation with Virginia Cook for so many years. It has made changing brokerages a lot less painful.”
She had so much to share about this beautifully designed building and condo, and how the biggest asset for this particular property is the unrivaled view.
“This home has the contemporary styling many high-rise residents want, especially in its vibrant Victory Park location,” Martinez said. “The walkability to all that Victory and downtown have to offer is superb, and The House has an abundance of first-class amenities.”
She’s not wrong about the resort feel of The House, which has an amenity deck that you’ll gravitate toward. Amenities include a guest suite, sky-view terrace with cabanas and 130-foot heated salt water pool and spa, fireplace, fitness center, party and conference rooms, dog run, and more.
However, the views from the 17th floor are just as captivating, and thanks to the unit’s layout, you’ll always have a great view.
“Unequaled, million-dollar views from wall-to-wall, 10-foot-high windows,” Martinez gushed. “Its 17th-floor corner location affords magical views to downtown as well as the Omni, Reunion Tower, the bridges, and sunsets!”
Here’s a taste from the terrace:
The view is just as splendid inside this 2,217-square-foot unit, Martinez noted.
“The floor plan is extremely versatile. In addition to the two bedrooms, there is a small room that could be used as an office, a TV room, or even converted to a wine cellar, which has been done,” says Martinez.
This unit has a superb master suite that has stellar sunset views from the enormous bedroom. In the master bath, you get surfaces draped in Carrara marble. However, you may fall in love with the storage.
“The 27-foot long wardrobe contains three closets and a built-in marble-topped desk — incredible storage & hidden space for a work project one may have going,” Martinez said. “The large laundry room and half bath are also big pluses.”
