Dallas self-made billionaire, developer, art collectors and winemaker power couple Craig and Kathryn Hall will soon be listing their Plaza II penthouse at 2828 Hood St. off Turtle Creek Blvd. this week. If you have even remotely thought of moving on up to “THE Boulevard” in Dallas, you seriously might want to check out unit 1702 and grab your checkbook. This home catches your breath, is move-in ready, and honestly won’t break the bank.

With breathtaking views of Turtle Creek and downtown Dallas from almost 180 degrees, this spectacular penthouse was custom created by the Halls, who merged two separated units with the help of HKS Architects, to be their Dallas home when they moved back from Europe in 2001.  The home exudes sophistication, elegance, fine custom finishes, and a prime location amongst the city’s traditional luxury high rise mecca. The square footage is 6,379, and every inch is loaded with fine details, much as you would expect from two of the most avid art collectors in Texas.

Glass coffee table filled with gold leaf by E. Klein: all art will be moving with the Halls to their new home at Hall Arts Residences.

Look at the custom herringbone wood flooring, the museum-finished walls (they are everywhere), 11- and 24-foot ceiling heights, windows with motorized shades, and innovative lighting throughout. You have soaring walls to display your own art collection and the perfect light to bathe them. Pick your favorite view of the city: guarantee you there will be several.
