The 7,154-square-foot Hillcrest Estates home of Dallas City Councilman Lee Kleinman and his wife, Dr. Lisa Umholtz, is still slated for auction this Saturday, September 28, 11:00 a.m. with no minimum reserve price at 11322 East Ricks Circle, Dallas, with Elite Auctions.

The final preview is scheduled for Friday (this afternoon) from 1-4pm, and registration begins bright and early Saturday morning at 9:00am.

Elite Auctions is the luxury home auction company whose signs you may be seeing more frequently around DFW. Elite successfully auctioned off the Vaquero properties of Vanessa Swarovski, then later Mark Texeira, and the Highland Park home of Michael Young, among many others.

But Saturday, it’s all about North Dallas and a pristine enclave that some call Preston Hollow, which is really more Preston Royal, the official neighborhood name being Hillcrest Estates. Comprised of about 90 minimum one-acre home spreads, a few select homes along East and West Ricks Circle, Wander Lane and Belmead, actually boast larger than acre lots.

The Kleinman home is one of them. And a week ago, I learned that the home’s unique contemporary design actually inspired the Kleinman’s daughter to a career in architecture.

 

Built in 1993 by AIA Fellow Gregory S. Ibanez, the five-bedroom, six-full, two-half-bathroom home was also a fixture on the Raymond Nasher Tour of Homes back in 1996, as well as the Northaven Tour of Homes. The home was first listed with Kyle Rovinsky of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate for $4,567,890, then lowered to $3.95 million.

Ultimately the home’s price came down to $3.795, first with Rovinsky, then with Allie Beth Allman and Christine McKenny. The home is now listed by Cliff Freeman of eXp Realty.

Though it is being sold without reserve, the asking price is $3.5 million.

“The asking price is a good guide for what it would take to buy this house, prior to auction,” says Elite Marketing Director Alicia Chmielewski.

There are homes that wow you, and then there are homes like this modern mansion in Cedar Hill that completely blow you away. As you drive past the 85-foot long reflecting pool brimming with fountains to get to the front door, you’ll feel as though a valet is going to pop out to whisk your car away, and that’s not a bad idea for when you host parties here. Guests will be in awe from the moment they see the splendid abode, and that feeling will only continue to grow as they step into the polished porcelain foyer with soaring high ceilings and double staircases.

The Residences at the Stoneleigh offers some of the most luxurious condominium homes in Dallas, giving owners a unique opportunity to build a custom home in the sky. And that appears to be a big selling point as the building is now more than 85 percent sold.

Walking into the lobby of this fabulous residential building is reminiscent of entering a five-star hotel. The design and architectural features are unparalleled and the service immediately makes residents feel they “have arrived.” Attentive valets and concierges greet guests and make them feel like the most important people in Dallas.

The lobby boasts a jaw-dropping, custom-made crystal chandelier imported from Italy, and the flower arrangements are warm and engaging.

“There will probably never be another building like this in Dallas,” said Residences at the Stoneleigh developer Mehrdad Moayedi. “The amenities, location, and opportunity to build your own custom home in the sky will likely never be duplicated. We are very proud of this building.”
