12001 Browning LR2I am seeing a plethora of sleek, contemporary young beauties hitting the market now at terrific price points below $2 million. Let’s call them “dolls”. First, there was 6720 Greenwich, which is right around the bend from this baby at 12001 Browning, north of Forest, south of Willow. I think they are really giving the stucco Mediterraneans and Hill Country stone cousins a run for their money. valley-of-the-dolls-patty-duke-susan-hayward-1967

12001 Browning is, says Allie Beth agent Forrest Gregg, an interpretation of a 1960’s contemporary. Perhaps the one that was torn down on this very lot. The architect is Mark Domiteaux, who brought in beautiful natural light, sleek lines and fine details.

There is a spacious master suite on its very own level with a large sitting area, coffee bar, bright spa bathroom and enormous master closet. The master bathtub is a work of art, you have to see it. Nestled against the window, it has it’s own tile wall with built in shelving, gleaming like a permanent waterwall.12001 Broadway tub 12001 Broadway master bath 12001 Broadway master closet 12001 Browning master bath

In all, you get 4634 square feet with formals, media room, exercise room, game room, four bedrooms, three and a half powder bath, and a separate guest quarters for privacy. The home is on a huge .34 acre lot, about one-third an acre, in a treed quadrant near Preston and Forest. Built just in 2009, there are many energy efficient features and technology tricks like electric shades, flat screen TV wiring everywhere, smart home system, and security. What there isn’t: a pool. Who needs it with that tub? Asking $1,725,000.12001 Browning stairs 12001 Browning steps ext 12001 Broadway guest 12001 Broadway ext patio

Valley of the DollsCan you not just see Patty Duke, Barbara Parkins and Sharon Tate floating through the doorway in their swishing boudoir gowns and pill box hats, heading to the patio, cigarette holders in hand,  for a smoke? Make that an e-cigarette, please, and shut the door. There were a few things about the ’60’s we do not need to resurrect, but not many.

 

 

Joseph Gulloto? Allie Beth Allman? Alan Peppard (you have to subscribe, but here goes) says she took her grand daughter and the Andrews grandaughters down to show Khloe some W condos this weekend and got mic’ed up for the show, little girls and all. He also says Khloe and Lamar have leased Mack Hicks two-bedroom unit, #2604, pictured here, for $7500 a month. Allie Beth is the listing agent. It’s the most expensive lease at The W. Apparently it was once a three bedroom, but was converted to a two bedroom for more living-entertainment space: a playroom with stainless steel wet bar, wine fridge, custom wine rack, ice machine, and media wiring for audio visual system were put in. Nice.

I spoke to Forrest Gregg, who also showed Khloe and Lamar some properties (because Forrest works with a lot of NBA players and sports stars) but then says he got busy with two other Maverick players. Forrest said he thinks the agent is finally Steve Rigely with Roger’s Healy & Associates, which is exacly what Rogers has been telling me all day long.

“Steve Rigely with my company is their agent. No deal is complete,” Rogers texted me at 11:15 p.m.

I do know this: Steve and Mack Hicks are buddies, so my guess is that yes, it is unit 2604 but Steve was, or is, the agent on the lease. I’ve been told Mack moves out Thursday. I guess I write about and hang around Realtors so much I don’t like to call it a deal until I see the John Hancocks are dry. But Khloe has spread the wealth and sure given a lot of agents a shot.

Which is all the better, of course, for her show!
