Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Dana Rigg is marketing an exceptional condominium that occupies 3,671 square feet on the 17th floor of 3525 Turtle Creek Boulevard. The home is being offered for $879,000.

3525 Turtle Creek is a 22-story building that was billed as the “tallest, largest, and most luxurious apartment building ever erected west of the Mississippi” when it opened in the late 1950s. A beautiful example of Mid-Century Modern architecture, the building designed by Howard R. Meyer offers panoramic views of Downtown Dallas, Turtle Creek, and the Katy Trail.

The condo’s central living area is a grand salon enhanced by museum-finish walls and floors that alternate between marble and stained walnut. There are two generously sized bedroom suites, and the luxurious marble spa bath in one of them offers one-of-a-kind sunset views.
