The auction was Saturday, as we told you, and so many have asked us, did 3508 Bryn Mawr actually sell at the auction?

You bet it did. Terms are not being revealed, but you know I will find out.

Created by Emerson Residential in 2006, the rock-solid stunner has five bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, one half bath, a designer kitchen, expansive master suite, and lovely outdoor area with a covered patio and fireplace. Enough room for a small pool, and there is even a small sun room off the back yard that would be a perfect entertainment hub.

The house sold at auction on September 1, the market listing price with Allie Beth Allman’s Lillie Young a hair under $3.5 million. This home has been listed for as much as $3.9 in the past. Elite Auctions’ Market Director Southwest, Alicia Chmielewski, couldn’t give me many details other than the fact that she had two very happy home sellers!

You have heard us go on and on about former Texas Ranger Michael Young’s fantastic home at 3508 Bryn Mawr Drive in University Park.

We had an open house event there a Saturday or two ago, and you couldn’t pull me out. 

Created by Emerson Residential in 2006, this house has five bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, one half bath, a designer kitchen, expansive master suite, and lovely outdoor area with a covered patio and fireplace. Enough room for a small pool, and there is even a small sun room off the back yard that would be a perfect entertainment hub. I was totally blown away by the home, quality of construction, design and details. A more family-friendly home in UP I have not seen.

Now I am blown away by the fact that the house is selling tomorrow, September 1 (August is gone!) at 11:00 a.m WITHOUT RESERVE. And someone is going to get the deal of the century. I mean, the home is listed with Allie Beth Allman’s Lilly Young for just under $3.5 million. Hec, once it was listed for $3.9!

“This University Park neighborhood is just a short commute to downtown Dallas and in the attendance zone for Highland Park ISD, a major draw for many,” said Alicia Chmielewski, Elite Auctions Market Director, Southwest. “An open floorplan and luxe amenities make this home appealing for the discerning buyer.”

No kidding. The Highland Park School District is one of the most coveted in the southwest. (more…)

Did you catch the article in the Wall Street Journal this week? “Former Major League Baseball All-Star Michael Young is auctioning his 7,715-square-foot Dallas mansion without reserve next month.”

That’s the one we have been telling you about! That’s where we are having our CandysDirt.com Staff Party TOMORROW! This is a rare opportunity to buy a celebrity home at auction in coveted University Park, with top rated schools and security, on a quarter acre of land with five bedrooms and seven-and-a-half baths, hand-scraped hardwood floors, recirculating water heaters, and decorative lighting fixtures, to say the least. And it is listed for $3.5 million. Michael Young said he wanted to take a more “creative route” to sell it.
