There may be a slew of home tours every spring, but there’s only one that focuses on the luxury high-rise buildings that line the picturesque urban neighborhood of Turtle Creek. In fact, it’s such a great tour because it offers something special: A chance to view our city from new angles and perches.
If you’re not familiar with Dallas’ Uptown neighborhood, then this tour is a great way to get acquainted. And we’re very excited at the great properties and units offered during this year’s Turtle Creek Tour of Homes benefiting the Turtle Creek Association. In its 17th year, this tour is all about the great properties and views of the area’s beloved namesake, Turtle Creek. The April 8 home tour will offer walk-throughs from 1 to 5 p.m. of one single-family home on St. Johns Drive in Highland Park, as well as units inside The Warrington, The Vendome, and 3525 Turtle Creek. There’s an additional after party at the home of Dallas’ cheese queen Paula Lambert, too, starting at 6:30 p.m. Want to attend both? Advance tickets are available through the Turtle Creek Association website for $150. For those who only want to scope the homes, tickets are $50 per person for Turtle Creek Association members, and $60 per person for non-members.
We got the chance to chat with one of the homeowners, Bonnie Pitman, who is offering a glance at her beautiful 13th-floor unit inside the midcentury modern high-rise designed by acclaimed architect Howard Meyer — 3525 Turtle Creek. Jump for a sneak peek!
