Not to outdo your delicious find, Joanna, but I think I’ve died and gone to heaven. How can this home at 11 Nonesuch Road be so darn tootin’ CUTE? First of all, highly creative owners — Mary Poe is a marketing genius over at D Mag, and her husband, Bob, is a well-known Dallas artist. And you know buying a home from an artist, architect or designer adds in even more value because it is turn-key: all the design work has been done for you. You’ve got LOCATION on a fabulous street that will give your return address some panache and raised even the most Botoxed eyebrows. You’ve got 2177 square feet with a killer outdoors area … three bedrooms, two and half baths all of which have been redone by the best folks in town, two living areas and that outdoor living room with a dry-stack stone fireplace, vaulted and beamed ceiling and waterfall. I haven’t even gotten started on the kitchen — all redone with Carrera marble tops, Walker-Zanger backsplash, gas cooktops, double ovens, island for prepping. Best of all, your neighbors include the old Stanley Marcus estate at 10 Nonesuch Road, the home of Stanley Marcus for about 60 years, and host to everyone from Eleanor Roosevelt to Lady Bird Johnson to Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin, just to drop a few names. Asking $550,000 and hate to tell you, but it already has a contract on it.
