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.

So I had to ask the agent, darling Emily Price Carrigan, what gives?

This is one of my most favorite developments in Dallas, and I can say I even remember when it was built. Regents Park is solid commercial construction with pure high end finish out, and the ideal place to live if you are right-sizing, want zero exterior maintenance but the semblance of a yard. You are gated, secure, right across the street from the Mansion on Turtle Creek and minutes from the Katy Trail and Turtle Creek.

The biggest: you are in a home, not a condo, retaining the ultimate in luxurious living.

Now Emily Price Carrigan presents us with one of the most amazing Regents Park units to become available in years, with views unlike any other from the insulated arched windows: 3522 Gillespie.

What I love: the property on the east side of this home has a huge setback,  with a park-like front lawn studded with tasteful sculptures. Beyond that, the lone corner property is a redone vintage home and office space.

From the fourth floor balconies, 3522 Gillespie even has views of Old Parkland — stunning, I have been there, could look at this every day!— and a total southeast view of the entire city of Dallas that literally shimmers come night.

Oh and don’t worry about tripping up the stairs when you are tired: 3522 Gillespie has an elevator to take you from the garage to fourth floor.

The spaces in Regents Park were drafted at a time when luxury ruled, and it prevails.

As a new member of the CandysDirt.com team and a Lifestylist® who loves history and architecture, I was so excited to be included in this CandysDirt.com staff meeting and to have the opportunity to tour one of Dallas most significant modernist homes at 3616 Crescent.

Staff meetings are open to all in the real estate industry in Dallas as well as buyers and sellers who want to learn more about what we do. (We drink champagne while we listen!) It’s a great opportunity to meet new people and to learn about what makes Dallas such a special place to live, all inside a really great listing.

Learning about 3616 Crescent was the perfect way to finish up a spectacular year. Broker Emily Price Carrigan gave tours of the home and pointed out some of the features that make this place so special — knowing the stories behind the improvements that have been made to the home make it even more fascinating, and she had some great stories to tell!
