11038 Snow White ext

We’ve featured this home before, but at that time, this incredible Cliff May Midcentury masterpiece was listed for $639,999. Today 11038 Snow White can be yours for an irresistible $584,900. Thats a more than $55,000 price break, guys, and this house is so worth it!

Built in 1955 with more than 3,200 square feet, this home is a dream come true for those who love to entertain crowds. The dramatic clerestory windows in front give off natural light, and the floor-to-ceiling windows act as a portal to the outdoors. It has four bedrooms, three full baths, and two sizable living areas that make great use of the vaulted ceilings.

I love the lines, textures, and angles that make this mid-mod really hum. The parquet floors are just absolutely mint, and all of the bathrooms have been splendidly renovated. A divine mix of wood tones in the living room and kitchen, as well as gobs of built-ins, make this home exceptionally artful.

The master bedroom is a ginormous 14×27. Seriously, just gigantic. You could have a separate lounge area, perfect for that retreat you’ve always been imagining. Put a huge shag rug in here, an Eames chair, perhaps even a cool modern sectional. Love the idea of maybe having a stand-alone fireplace in there.

The backyard is a stunner, too, with a gorgeous square pool and an effortlessly chic patio. The corner lot is huge, too, with more than a third of an acre. So, the question: is the price right? Hopefully this beauty gets snatched up soon!

The SorrentoI am very excited that Michael Jenkins is putting this pad on the market — want to know why? I am dying to see what The Sorrento looks like! The Sorrento is a luxury mid-rise in Preston Hollow that was built about 2006 or so. I hear it is just hot stuff, and now Bill Griffin is marketing the properties.

Jenkins 21I remember the namesake Italian restaurant that was located at this address years ago. It was behind the post office on Turtle Creek, and there was a wonderful fortune teller at the bar. Great food. Many memories. In any case, Michael Jenkins, now a cornerback for the Oakland Raiders, lived here when he played for the Cowboys. Now he wants to shed this three bedroom, three and one half bath condo with a terrace off of the main living area. Amenities include an infinity edge pool, entertainment deck, a cappuccino bar (how cool is that!), a business center, gym and concierge. I do not have to tell you about the location unless you have just arrived here from, oh, say Chechnya. This particular pad, 8616 Turtle Creek #412, is about 2044 square feet and comes with a two car garage space.

The Sorrento lobbyThe Sorrento poolI need to seriously check this place out. You know I am ga-ga over the Pink Wall. The location, as I said, rules: a block or so off Northwest Highway, Central to your east, Dallas North Tollway to your west, and Northwest Highway to take you just about anywhere. NorthPark! Preston Center! Central Market and Tom Thumb at Preston Royal! A better route to DFW than LBJ for the next four years! Listing agent, none other than Rogers Healy, who seems to be repping every major Dallas sports star.

The Sorrento is sounding like a pretty decent deal. I wonder if they serve a good carbonara at that Cappucino bar?El Sorrento extJenkins media Jenkins master Jenkins FP Jenkins LR Jenkins kitchen Jenkins DR

I feel like a proud parent. I watched this home being built in 2008. Now 4327 Bluffview Blvd. is all grown up and ready for — I cannot believe this — a second family. How fast they grow, or rather, go! This is one of Kim Schlegel Whitman’s stunningly smooth contemporaries she was designing and building with hubby Justin across town until, well, until the economy came to a screeching halt. (Was talking to a builder tonight, he called himself and the handful of builders in this town still hammering “Survivors.”) First of all, we are in Bluffview, probably the most sought-after neighborhood in Dallas, super agent Becky Frey tells me. The empty nesters are flocking to Bluffview like a Birkin sale, shedding those larger homes and lots. This home has a .35 acre lot loaded with trees on a great block. Four bedrooms, three and a half baths, 4482 square feet, perfectly sized. Downstairs master suite has a huge flagstone patio and covered porch.

There is also a dramatic 50 foot plus great room with 12 foot ceilings enclosed by a whole wall of glass — get out the Windex! Also upstairs game room and a covered porch. Reduced from $1,299,000 to $1,195,000 and listed with Bill Griffin. Love love love this house. Want it. I’m in LOVE!

In a meeting with a major North Texas developer this week, he said to me: “I do not like Rick Perry all that much, and I do not think he is very smart. However, he is sending out a great message about Texas and we are getting all sorts of out-of-state interest in our properties. So do I support him for the White House? Heck yes!”

When it comes to politics, people often vote with their checkbooks or, in the case of this election,  negative wallet biopsy. Make that negative home equity biopsy. And like Bill Griffin says, there are so many rules and regs that haven’t even been written yet, no one knows what’s coming down the pike! Anyhoo, I was on NBC’s NonStop Nightly last night with precious Jane McGarry talking real estate, Case Shiller and CoreLogic, and how Perry’s campaign is putting the Texas economy AND real estate in the spotlight. People in other states are wondering what we are doing right that we have jobs and 30% of our homeowners are not underwater on their mortgages. Truth is, we have a lot less regulation that most states and we limit how much Texas consumers can borrow against their homestead. In fact, it wasn’t too long ago that Texas homeowners could not borrow one dime against their homestead!
