If you have not had the chance to tour the new 22-story Stoneleigh Residences, which are filling up very quickly over off Maple Avenue at Wolf Street, I strongly suggest you stop in and give your eyes a holiday treat. I not only toured one of the units the incredible (and CandysDirt-approved!) Sharif & Munir folks are finishing out over there  — a sleek contemporary — but I attended a party at a friend’s house who now lives there and could not be happier.

First, who all is buying there? As we have told you, Don and Linda Jo Carter shed their Park Cities home in July of 2013 and snapped up a penthouse at The Stoneleigh. Also, of course, a place at The Ritz. So did Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle, plastic surgeon Natan Yaker, and a sprinkling of physicians and professionals. Of 75 units on the Dallas County Appraisal District records, only 42 are left to sell and five are pending. The sales office tells me six homeowners bought additional spaces to enlarge their original shell. Some are combining units so there may ultimately be fewer to sell. This is not the building for junior sized homes. According to Donna Smith, sales director,  4000 seems to be the magic number for square feet.  (more…)
