Our Prize Behind the Pink Wall Just Got More Affordable

Share News:

Remember our “Preston Hollow Prize Behind The Pink Wall Hits Market For $599,900”? Well guess what? You can have it now, for less: $550,000! That’s a savings of more than $49K.

Stop what you’re doing. We have the scoop on a George Dahl masterpiece in Preston Hollow! The Imperial House epitomizes Hollywood Regency design at its best, with rare and elegant offerings that don’t sit on the market long. This property has panache, attracting past residents ranging from Elvis to Frank Sinatra to a current WFAA-TV anchor! And now, you too, could be among the select few to own a slice of Imperial House history.

Ged Dipprey and Emily Ray-Porter with Dave Perry-Miller InTown just listed a lovingly restored first-floor condo you have to see to believe.

Truth be told, I have seen this beauty and it stops you in your tracks.

“When co-listing agent, Emily Ray-Porter and I arrived at this one-of-a-kind unit ‘Behind the Pink Wall’ we were simply floored with how much this unit lives like a single-family home, and with so little maintenance,” said Dipprey. “The flow is fantastic with spacious formals. And there is certainly no shortage of storage, including a separate storage unit!”

I was impressed with the quality of the finish-out. The Imperial House is one of the city’s name-dropping condos. The property is incredibly well-maintained and known for two crystal blue pools and lavish common areas landscaped to perfection. The security is among the best in Dallas. HOA dues of $962 a month include utilities and total exterior maintenance, which is the best Behind the Pink Wall.

Imperial House is built of the same white NorthPark Center brick Dahl used on the famous shopping mall, which is incredibly close by. Since most Imperial House residents simply walk across Northwest Highway to the vast world of eateries and shopping of Preston Center, you can elect to park your vehicles in the two-car garage conveniently located just steps from the home’s back entry.

Let’s recap the features of 6146 (#105E) Averill Way: white oak wood floors, genuine parquet, Bertazzoni appliances, and gorgeous crown moldings. The home two-bedrooms, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom in a gracious 2,006 square feet. No expense was spared on the finish-out! This includes Sherle Waggoner original cast brass hardware and fabulous John Redding wallcoverings in the powder room. We also love the ambient up-lighting in the formal dining. Bath and kitchen hardware is by Newport Brass. The master bath was completely gutted to the studs with new plumbing lines added and a deep soaking tub plus huge shower. Imperial House boasts some of the most beautiful book-ended marble in the city, but the owner literally coated this bathroom with a new line of sleek Grecian marble. All commodes are skirted. The new laundry closet has double-stack units, and every inch of wall has a level five museum finish.

And now all of this for $50,000 less!
