English Tudor Manor

You have never seen anything quite like this grand English Tudor manor house in Dallas. In fact, any member of the royal family would feel completely at home at 5131 Deloache Avenue in the Sunnybrook Estates neighborhood of Old Preston Hollow. It has all of the custom millwork and hand-crafted details that create an aura of stepping back in time to a more genteel way of living. You half expect to see a corgi or two running up to greet you upon arriving in the jaw-dropping entry hall.

Country French estateWhat do Bill Gates, Brad Pitt, Elton John, Johnny Depp, and Victoria Beckham have in common? Well, besides celebrity. They all share a love for homes in the French countryside. Even Marie Antoinette escaped the confines of the palace for her rustic retreat, Le Hameau de la Reine, as often as possible. If you can’t flee to France, our Monday Morning Millionaire is the next best thing. It’s a Country French estate built by Durett Homes for a developer.  (more…)

CandysDirt staff meeting

It’s one of the most luxurious homes in Highland Park — or Texas — and we’ve got your ticket to tour at the next CandysDirt staff meeting.

Sitting on almost an acre at 3509 Euclid Ave., this Mediterranean villa is over 18,000 square feet of sophisticated spaces, with six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, six half baths, four living rooms, three dining rooms, and 11 fireplaces on three stories, built in 2012.

On Thursday, Feb. 16 at 5:30 p.m., we’ll be there to take in the views and enjoy this private, luxe retreat near Armstrong and Abbot avenues in one of the toniest parts of Highland Park.

Just how exquisite is this villa? How about a wine grotto with tasting room, outdoor putting green, indoor golf simulator, sprawling 10-car garage, and a state-of-the-art gym with a steam and aromatherapy room? And the backyard is positively swoon-worthy, with a Tuscan cabana with a sitting room and private baths, sparkling swimming pool and spa, fountains, and a fire pit in the pool.

This masterpiece is the work of Fusch Architects, builder John Sebastian of Sebastian Construction Group, and Harold Leidner Landscape Architects. It is newly listed by JP Piccinini and Monica Shovlin with JP & Associates Realtors for $18 million.

How about a sneak peek before our CandysDirt staff meeting? I’d love to show you this property…

Let’s face it, Barrow Durrett knows what appeals to Dallas buyers. Their latest custom home at 6335 Pemberton Drive, designed by Fusch Architects, ticks every box and then some. They consistently build properties that hit the mark, not only in construction and style, but also in finish-out and amenities.

Any builder that has the foresight to install an elevator has certainly captured our hearts. (more…)
