Mansion Residences

In 1992, The Rosewood Property Company broke ground on a concept that has now been copied world-wide. The idea was to build a high-rise luxury residence with all the advantages of a world-class hotel. That property is The Mansion Residences, also known as 2801 Turtle Creek.

The residents have full use of the amenities at the spectacular hotel Caroline Hunt built, the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek. It’s a match made in heaven. Who would not covet 24-hour service, catering provided by one of America’s most well-known restaurants, and security that would meet the expectations of the most renowned celebrity?

Luxury Warehouse

[Editor’s note: Merry Christmas! This week, we’re taking time off to focus on our loved ones, so we are sharing some of our favorite stories from this year. Keep an eye out for our top features from the archives as we rest and get ready for a brilliant 2019! Cheers, from Candy and the entire staff at CandysDirt.com!]

Each year we go through our previous posts and try to figure out which ones we liked best. Frankly, that’s impossible. Let’s face it we are all totally house addicted and love every single one we post about, or we would not be doing this every day. But I have to say this Design District Luxury Warehouse with a Waterfall is close to my heart. Not only do I know the seller, but I’ve been to some pretty glam parties in this space. Lynn Sugarman was the first person I’ve ever met that saw the beauty in a warehouse space. Of course, she was coming to Dallas from New York when I met her and saw her first transformation on Dragon Street. The warehouse home was normal there. But it was most decidedly not normal here until she made it so! I christen Sugarman as the diva of warehouse transformations, and this one takes the cake! (more…)

How do you build a modern prairie mansion — not just any modern prairie, but a residence so spectacular that it will leave you breathless the moment you enter? Start with a generous budget, then hire a team with extensive experience, and great taste. To top it all off, throw in an homage to Frank Lloyd Wright and voilà: we have 3508 Crescent Avenue in the heart of Old Highland Park. (more…)

Here’s something you don’t see every day.  A Goldilocks trio of quite different units in the same stack at the Stoneleigh.  You’ll recall, the Stoneleigh began life as a DIY building of unfinished shells. Some buyers gravitated to the complete freedom of designing their own interior without the added strife of actually designing a full home from the foundation to the roof.  Turns out that a lot of folks just aren’t interested in doing that, so the Stoneleigh announced last year that they would be finishing out some of the remaining shells to give move-in buyers something to buy.

Now, if you’re not skint of a $3.6 million budget to buy Rick Carlisle’s unit, move along, nothing for you to see here. If you’re a couple of mil short, read on …
