We have written about this home before because Regents Park is one of my most favorite developments in Dallas full of luxurious European townhomes.

And now, my fingers keep walking over to my checkbook. I mean, I could do this. You could do this, as 3522 Gillespie has been significantly reduced from an asking price of $1.85 million to an unbelievably new list price of $1.495 million.

That is under $1.5 million to live right across from The Mansion on Turtle Creek, a hop skip and jump from The Katy Trail, in a maintenance-free, zero-lot-line, commercial construction home with pure high-end finish out, zero exterior maintenance, but enough yard for a pet or a trunkful of flowers from Nicholson-Hardy. You are gated, you are secure, you are in the Turtle Creek corridor, and you are set for life. And living in this part of town is essentially like living in Beverly Hills.

For less than $1.5 million.

This must mean I’m getting old. I remember when they BUILT Regents Park. I loved it then, I love it now. Regents Park would be the ideal place for my next home — not really downsizing, but right sizing in extreme elegance with zero exterior maintenance, but NOT a condo. Regents Park was built in 2003, as the Dallas high rise/brownstone/density living scene was just hitting the gas pedal. It is one of the most sought after living spaces in the Turtle Creek-Mansion Park area. What’s practically across the street?

The Mansion on Turtle Creek.

It is rare that these extremely well designed, commercially constructed homes are available. And 3522 Gillespie, marketed by Emily Price Carrigan, is just hot on the market. It offers four stories of beautifully designed, jewel-box perfection. (more…)
