Aesthetics and Location of The House Lure Top Designer From Turtle Creek


10_thehouse_rm2004-6759


As one of Dallas’ most sought-after interior designers, Neal Stewart knows quality when he sees it. That’s why the longtime high-rise resident traded his home along Turtle Creek for a condominium in The House.

Stewart was struck by the 28-story luxury building’s design, featuring the stamp of a world-renowned architect, and its location at 2200 Victory Ave., just a few blocks north of downtown.

“Here, there are so many more cultural opportunities,” Stewart said. “You can walk to museums, to Klyde Warren Park, to fabulous restaurants — we can spend a weekend here and never use the car.”

Indeed, the American Airlines Center, Katy Trail, Arts District, Perot Museum, and Dallas World Aquarium are all within walking distance of The House. To make things even more convenient, The House’s concierge will valet homeowners’ cars as well as help with groceries, packages, dry cleaning, and a multitude of other requests.

“I’ve been pleasantly surprised by what a tight ship they run, by how great the concierge service is,” Stewart said of the work done by First Service Residential. “It’s just a very well-run building.”

Stewart said he was also impressed by The House’s numerous amenities, including a 130-foot saltwater infinity pool overlooking downtown, cabanas, an outdoor fireplace, a built-in grilling station, a hot tub, and a dog park. Residents also enjoy a well-appointed lounge with a billiards area, a fitness center, and a conference room.

If you are considering a transition to this convenient and luxurious lifestyle, do not delay. Seventy-five percent of the condominiums in at The House are spoken for, and 9 of 19 floor plans are completely sold out.

Nothing Compares to Museum-Quality Penthouse at Ritz-Carlton Residences


ritz_penthouse_1


Imagine the most incredible condominium, built to the owner’s exacting standards, exhibiting impeccable taste and sparing no expense in design, finishes, decoration, and equipment. Imagine five-star hotel services and amenities — including in-room dining, valet, concierge, a pet park, a fitness center, and a full-service spa — in one of Dallas’ premiere high-rises.

Imagine no more. Everything you just read is true of the four-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath, 5,666-square-foot penthouse that occupies the entire 22nd floor of The Residences at the Ritz-Carlton. The aforementioned square footage doesn’t include the 2,481 square feet of outdoor living space on three balconies, which overlook Downtown, Victory Park, and Uptown. Kathy Myers and Sharon Quist are marketing this unique property for $9 million.

“A lot of Realtors talk about how their listings are ‘museum quality,’ but this unit is a cut above the rest,” Myers said.

Those museum qualities begin with the walls and 12-foot ceilings, most of which are hand-crafted marble plaster. The flooring is predominately quarter-sawn white oak and Breccia Imperiale granite. The lighting throughout the penthouse is designed to showcase the stunning and intricate architectural details.

The unit’s artfulness is matched only by its technical sophistication. The television in the master bedroom is built into a cabinet; it rises at the touch of a button and swivels toward the bed or the sitting area. In each of the master closets — 102 square feet for him, 252 square feet for her — the upper cabinets feature motorized doors. As you would expect, the lights, window coverings, and audio-visual equipment are all integrated into a state-of-the-art automated Crestron/Lutron system.

Every detail of the home’s design was carefully considered. The centerpiece of the living room is the book-matched walnut burl fireplace wall, with Breccia Imperiale granite hearth and mantle and a Jura Grey marble surround. The kitchen cabinets and island were custom ordered from Poggenpohl. The study’s walls and ceiling were fashioned from figured Mozambique panels with teak accents. And the his-and-hers master bathrooms are finished with Giallo Antico marble counters, limestone floors and showers, and Porcelanosa tile walls, featuring a beautiful mosaic of aqua marine, quartz, moonstone, and tiger’s eye.

“I’ve seen many beautiful homes at the Ritz-Carlton,” said Quist, who is a Ritz resident and has been involved in more than 100 transaction sides at the luxury high-rise. “None of them compare to this.”

With new seasons for the Dallas Stars and Dallas Mavericks on the horizon, activity in and around the American Airlines Center is about to pick up. But during those franchises’ time off, another team has been creating plenty of buzz nearby at The House, a luxury high-rise marketed by Dave Perry-Miller & Associates.

The 27-story building at 2200 Victory Avenue is now 60 percent sold, thanks to the tireless efforts of Beth Borman, Claudine King, Brittani Frankowiak, and Tucker Bomar over the past 12 months. These Realtors comprise The House’s sales and marketing team — with Sharon Quist and Emily Ray-Porter serving as advisors — and they have plenty of topics to choose from when discussing the benefits of buying a condominium at The House.

“The American Airlines Center is just one of the attractions our residents can walk to,” said King, who co-manages the team with Borman. “There’s also the Katy Trail, the Arts District, and the Perot Museum, not to mention all the great nightlife on McKinney Avenue.”

Of course, even with so much to see and do on foot, plenty of homeowners still drive. That’s why The House’s staff will valet cars as well as help with groceries, packages, dry cleaning, and any other requests.

When they’re home, residents of The House get to enjoy lifestyle that comes with a world of amenities and services, including a 130-foot heated saltwater pool overlooking downtown that’s supplemented by private cabanas, an outdoor fireplace, a built-in grilling station, a hot tub, and a private dog park. The discerning buyer will also enjoy a well-appointed lounge with a billiards area, as well a fitness center and conference room.

Floor plans in The House can accommodate everyone from young singles to retired couples and small families. Each unit’s kitchen boasts marble or limestone counters, stained wood cabinetry, and high-performance appliances.

“Because we have fewer units per floor than in most high-rises,” Borman said, “there are more corner locations with great views of multiple landmarks, such as Reunion Tower, the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, and Victory Park.”

As more and more buyers find out about The House, and its value relative to similar high-rises, some floor plans are selling out. If you’re interested in living in the heart of Dallas, don’t delay seeing it for yourself. The House is open from 11 to 5 on weekdays and from 1 to 5 on Saturday and Sunday.
