I was so pleased to see this luxury transitional in Melshire Heights come up as not only for sale but also for lease this week! If you’re in the market to lease, don’t be surprised if you end up purchasing this one.
It’s that good.
This luxury transitional was built by Fairmont Homes. That’s not surprising if you’re familiar with the name. If not, let me just tell you that the owner, Collin Fahrenkopf, is also a surprise. The only non-surprise here is, like many builders, he grew up in the business, shadowing his father each summer, who runs a successful landscape architecture design and build firm. But when Collin went off to college, he pursued a business degree with an emphasis in finance and spent six years in that industry.
Are you beginning to get the picture? Here’s a guy with a depth of knowledge about design and build who also has a financial background. But wait, there’s more. He’s a real estate professional, and he has an in-house interior designer with quite a track record of success in the luxury market. So, we have more than a home run here. We have a company that totally gets what the consumer wants today.
When Brinkley Property Group owner Kyle Brinkley told me this was a rare find, boy, was he right. This 4,922-square-foot, five-bedroom, five-bathroom, one-powder-bath home sits on almost a half-acre in the Dallas private school corridor. Jesuit and Hockaday are just across the Tollway. This luxury transitional is seven blocks from Jamestown Park and a few minutes from the Preston Forest shopping center. In other words, it is perfectly located.
When you look for a home to purchase or to lease, you look for the same things. You want an incredible floor plan with clean lines and an abundance of natural light. You want high-end designer finishes, museum-finished walls, and an on-trend kitchen with all the bells and whistles.
There are four ensuite bedrooms upstairs with huge walk-in closets and a large game room retreat. Of course, there is a private study behind custom steel doors. If you long for the outdoor life, this house delivers with an enormous backyard that can easily accommodate a pool if you decide to purchase! There’s a three-car garage, which another exceptional feature.
“The house is amazing, “Brinkley said. “I like the fact it’s large but has such thoughtful design. Every part of this luxury transitional is incredibly is functional.”
That’s the beauty of a well-constructed luxury transitional home. It’s everything you want to own, and, of course, you can.
Brinkley has 5506 Melshire Drive $18,000 per month or for sale $1.749 million. I’m a big proponent of trying it before you buy it. This is a great opportunity to do just that!
