We couldn’t be happier for Tayler Carson Sandvick, a Dallas stylist to the truly creme de la creme, as she is set to star in Million Dollar Shoppers, a new Lifetime Network show. According to Theresa Gubbins with CultureMap and the inimitable society blogger Cynthia Smoot, Sandvick, who is a sought-after personal shopper in Dallas with a background in couture, will partner with the quirky Gregg Asher for the show. I’m definitely DVRing the premiere episode on Oct. 10, right after Project Runway!
Sandvick, who has even been approached by a fan while filling up her car at a gas station, is just overwhelmed by the support she’s received from the show so far. “Honestly, it’s amazing,” she said.
It’s a sign that Sandvick’s career is taking off that she’s selling her Highland Park home at 4537 Arcady Avenue. She’s moving to New York to grow her career, and therefore selling this home that she’s poured so much of herself into. Inspired by some of the historic architecture of New York City, Sandvick tried to incorporate the things she loves about Manhattan, including the vibrant fashion scene, into this house.
This home is gorgeous inside and out, and has some fantastic touches that anyone with good taste can appreciate. There are three bedrooms, two and a half baths, more than 2,800 square feet, and a cozy guest quarters above the two-car garage.
Listed with Dave Perry-Miller agent/virtuoso Christine McKenny for almost $1.3 million, you can be sure that this house is priced right given the location and updates. It’s described by McKenny as “Parisian Chic Minimalist” and is full of wonderful fixtures and finishes. I love the antique-style faucets in the kitchen and baths, the Carrerra marble counters and backsplashes, updated commercial grade appliances, and the beautiful ebony hand-scraped hardwoods.
So, why “Parisian Chic”? Well, check out all of the French doors.
“I wanted it to be cool and open,” Sandvick said, noting that with all of the windows, this house is tremendously well lit during the day without the help of electricity.
We agree that this home is bursting with natural light, making all of the beautiful finishes and designer paint really pop. And I bet that if you’re an expert negotiator you can find a way to score some of Sandvick’s incredible furniture, which has a great mix of antiques and new pieces. Appliances, some outdoor furniture, and outdoor refrigerator will stay with the home. Other than the gray velvet draperies, everything else is for sale!
“Of course, we’re going to have to downsize,” Sandvick said with a laugh. Of course, New York City real estate is priced at a premium, so she’ll definitely sacrifice square footage for location. That’s not a problem, she said.
“I would love to have a home that’s not necessarily physically large, but has the best of everything,” Sandvick added.
Well, if you want size and the best of everything, this home is for you. This home is just perfect for a jet-setter, considering the very low-maintenance landscaping in both front and back of the home. You’ll love the patio for entertaining, too, which is just off the family room and kitchen. It’s really just a beautiful home and definitely a million-dollar listing worthy of a Million Dollar Shopper!
