Modern traditional mansion

Beverly Drive is the most desirable street in the Dallas area. You cannot convince me otherwise. Armstrong Parkway runs a very close second, and yes, I do love Swiss Avenue, but in my book, once you set eyes on Beverly Drive, nothing else can compare. I’ve been trying to figure out how to live there since 1979. The deck is not stacked in my favor, but if I could manage it, I’d be the first person in line to buy Robert Elliott’s latest custom build at 3414 Beverly Drive. This new build from a sought-after CandysDirt.com Approved Builder sets a new standard for luxury, and I’m dubbing it a modern traditional mansion. (more…)

Tudor estate

You’ve probably driven by this Tudor estate every Christmas, slowed down, and gawked just like thousands of others. There have always been the most astonishing holiday displays in the front yard. If you’ve lived in Dallas very long, you’ll know it belongs to philanthropist and entrepreneur Sam Wyly. Although Wyly’s resume takes up an entire page in Wikipedia, most of us know him as the owner of the arts-and-crafts chain Michaels Stores.

If you have not been living under a rock, you’ll know Daria Drive is home to former President George W. Bush. He’ll be your neighbor if you buy this fabulous French country estate at 10111 Daria Drive. It’s also the safest street in Dallas. The Secret Service may be there to protect the former president, but you can bet they look out for the neighbors. We have it on good authority that Mr. Bush kept an eye on the progress when this 7,031-square-foot custom home was being built. And no, we can’t reveal who told us. Oh, and Andy Beal is still just across the back fence.

Los Arboles

If you love the privacy and security afforded by a gated community you’d be hard pressed to find anything that comes close to this Rogers-Ford masterpiece at 3 Robledo Drive in the Los Arboles neighborhood. (more…)

Preston Hollow TransitionalIt’s often challenging to bring you homes in lower price points, because they fly off the market before we can write about them. There’s a different challenge with properties in the luxury category. There are so many beautiful houses priced at over $1 million in Dallas that we often have a hard time choosing. However, when we spotted this beautiful Preston Hollow transitional at 6516 Mimosa Lane designed by Neal Stewart, it was evident we had to share it with you. (more…)

Preston Hollow Estate

I admit it; I’m hard to impress. Writing about luxury properties several times a week pushes the bar higher and higher. So, when I find a home like this Preston Hollow estate, I’m not just excited to share it with you, I’m over the moon. Superlatives simply don’t do justice to this three-story custom mansion at 9236 Hollow Way Road. It sits on just under an acre of land, and if you need an extra basketball, Mark Cuban is within walking distance, and no doubt has a few lying around. (more…)

 University Park French Estate

“It’s like a luxury home on the French Riviera,” Dave Perry-Miller listing agent Laura Michelle said. There’s no need for a passport, however. This University Park estate at 6101 Saint Andrews Drive is in the heart of our fair city on just over half an acre, and it’s one of the prettiest Monday Morning Millionaires I’ve ever seen.
