When you’re a man about town with a penchant for dramatic, luxe style, what kind of space do you design for entertaining and as a showcase for travel acquisitions?
The answer is at 8526 Baltimore Dr. Apt 202, our Tuesday Two Hundred and the European-style pied-à-terre for a prominent Dallas jewelry designer. He arrived at this location after closing his Fifth Avenue apartment in New York City, seeking a discreet building in Dallas to house his expansive collection of art and antiques, throw fabulous parties, and provide a guest house for visitors.
“He was attracted to the natural flow of the layout, conducive for entertaining with large rooms and a lovely breakfast room or study off the kitchen,” said listing agent Catherine Gravel with Action Realty. “The condo was a blank canvas with great bones and structure in need of a little updating and color.”
It got both in its two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,359 square feet. The space now is a jewel box of rich colors and textures, from dramatic gray walls and and sumptuous ruby drapes to ornate gold-framed mirrors and art. There is nothing like it on the market in North Texas.
