By Candy Evans / February 12, 2014 / 6 Comments

Planning a trip to Tuscany? Cancel those reservations and stay home. Just buy your Valentine the home with the blue-tiled roof on Turtle Creek for Valentine’s Day and you can live in a lush Italianate environment 24 hours a day, mere minutes from downtown Dallas. (And pizza!) What could be more romantic? No need to send flowers, there are plenty in the lush gardens surrounding 3828 Turtle Creek Drive.

Who needs roses? Smell the live lavender, rose, and hydrangea.

Your gift is a landmark estate owned and lovingly restored by Robert Edsel, a remarkable Dallas oil man turned prolific writer, historian, and now filmmaker, notorious for helping hunt down artifacts and art from World War II.
