Texas Contemporary
Our Monday Morning Millionaire is a stunning Preston Hollow Texas Contemporary at 4562 Isabella Lane in the Wilson Estates neighborhood that has been completely transformed. The dream team of Architect David Stocker, Principal of Stocker, Hoesterey, Montenegro, and Brad Ellerman, President of Ellerman Homes, took it from 2005 to 2018 and all we can say is, “WOW!”

Dallas PalaceWalking through the grand entrance of 9006 Douglas Avenue is like stepping into a fairytale. There are very few homes that merit the use of the word “palace” and this is one of them. This home has been referred to as “The Mansion” for years. That in no way prepares you for what you will experience once you cross the threshold. So, we’re re-christening this palatial Mediterranean resort-style home as the “Dallas Palace.” (more…)

What could turn Ralph Lauren green with envy and make him want a luxury home in Dallas? The answer is easy. It’s our Monday Morning Millionaire — a majestic mountain-style mansion retreat at 4656 Meadowood Road — in the honeypot of Old Preston Hollow.

Italian Renaissance Revival

When you feature luxurious multi-million-dollar homes each week over the course of several years, once in a while, they come back on the market. Rarely, but it happens, and this is one such instance. This Italian Renaissance Revival has only had three owners, and it’s a perfect home in a perfect location.

The one-of-a-kind property at 3821 Beverly Dr. was listed only a few days ago by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Realtor Caroline Summers for $10.95 million, and it’s worth every penny.

Highland Park Contemporary

It’s impossible to drive down Armstrong Parkway and overlook this Highland Park contemporary. This street is one of the best known in the city, and it’s full of beautiful homes, but 3710 Armstrong Avenue is different. It’s a dramatic departure from the typical house you’ll find on this street, and it has certainly captivated me since the day architect Dan Shipley finished it in 2000.

Our Inwood House of the week is a Midway Hollow contemporary designed by the award-winning architecture firm of Larsen and Pedigo. This one story 4,500-square-foot home on just under a half acre is beyond stunning.

I cannot imagine a better house for art collectors, people who love to entertain, or even families. One-level living is in.  If you want to climb stairs, hit the Stairmaster at the gym and make those steps count. If you have kids, you know as well as I do there is no such thing as an elegant, architecturally sensitive baby gate! Yes, one-story living is the wave of the future, and it does not get better than 4139 Rosa Road. (more…)

Bluffview Estate
When I spotted this Bluffview estate at 5131 Shadywood Lane, I thought it was one of those iconic homes that had been built almost a century ago. However, according to the listing information, it was built in 2007. I didn’t believe it. I went to DCAD to see if maybe that was the year it was renovated and there was a mistake in the listing information.

There was no mistake. But it’s definitely not the same house that was built in 2007. Seriously, look at that façade. Then take a look at the second photo, and you’ll see what I mean. (more…)
