After helping more than 170 buyers and sellers move in, out and all around Dallas’ luxe Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, and after living there herself since it opened, you’d expect Sharon Quist has seen the best of the best in Uptown living. And you’d be right. But the top-producing, long-time Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agent would quickly let you know she is still regularly and pleasantly surprised at how exceptionally customized units in this 21-story building can be.
Case in point: 2525 N. Pearl St., No. 1402, a rare Ritz-Carlton three-bedroom end unit with dead-on downtown views priced at $4,595,000. Side note: Quist has had the rare privilege of representing the seller – and buyer – every time this unit has been listed, which is thrice now. To say she knows it well is an understatement.
Like a gracious hostess – ambassador even – Quist revels in showcasing to others what she has found so special about her high-rise home community of 11 years, including the continuously manned concierge desk and valet stand.
“You can come and go as you please,” Quist notes, “and there will always be a friendly face to see you off or welcome you home. Residents find they have a home within a home here with neighbors and staff always looking out for your well-being.”
She encourages exploration to appreciate the light-and-bright, newly remodeled lobby and owners’ living room with book-matched marble fireplace, pop-up TVs and adequate seating for building-wide happy hours and private parties.
Moving upstairs to unit 1402, enter into the double-doored foyer with inlaid marble floors, mirrored walls and an art wall that can accommodate an installation as well. Around the corner is an entry hall art niche opening to a private office or media room.
“Art collectors will find a variety of places to show off their most cherished pieces,” Quist said. “The 10-foot ceilings ensure even large ones have space to ‘breathe’ without overpowering the room.”
A marble gallery borders the great room with fireplace and the dining room, with a combination wet bar/butler’s pantry providing a touch of practicality for entertaining amid the extravagance. The great room opens onto the private and protected 377-square-foot terrace and to the library, which is adorned in lovely custom millwork.
The remodeled white granite kitchen with brushed gold hardware, boasts Wolf, Sub-Zero and Asko appliances, and opens to a large breakfast area and the heart of the home — a family room with fireplace overlooking the cityscape.
The split master suite with corner fireplace, measuring 25-by-14-foot, is the stuff of dreams, made real. The marble spa bath has a walk-in shower, jetted garden tub and dual closets. Secondary bedrooms share a bath. All told, the home encompasses a generous 4,257 square feet (per tax rolls).
As if you needed any more reasons to add the Residences at Ritz-Carlton to your consideration set, included with your new Elan smart-mansion-in-the-sky are 5-star hotel amenities – room service, onsite Dean Fearing restaurant and full-service spa to name a few – three assigned parking spaces, fitness center, community pool and proximity to Klyde Warren Park, Arts District and the Central Business District.
