As part of the awe-inspiring collection of stately residences within Place des Vosges, this multi-storied pied-à- terre is truly a showplace. Sophisticated architecture with limestone and brick detail lead you to the inviting vestibule with Venetian plaster walls inside. Upon entry, the intricate groin vault ceiling is attractive and down the hallway are spectacular views of the pool with fountains and the courtyard. With hardwood and marble flooring, arched doorways, recessed panel doors, and towering windows, the hallways and rooms are remarkable, with walls ideal for fine art collections.
An ensuite guest bedroom and powder bathroom are located on the first level. Adjacent is a downstairs den with fabulous custom doors that open to the outdoors also highlighting a stone fireplace and kitchenette; a private room for guests.
The mesmerizing winding staircase with wrought-iron baluster guides you to the main level which features grand living areas for a large entertaining setting. A family room with a cathedral ceiling and French doors offers treetop scenery from the balcony. Close by is a study with custom built-in cabinetry and a wet bar. Open to the family room is the large kitchen suitable for any chef with an abundance of cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. A breakfast room is close by with a stone fireplace, convenient for reading the morning newspaper.
Nearby is the elegant dining and formal living room with mahogany ceilings and inlaid wood floors. The living room offers built-in niches flanking a stone fireplace and a carved wood mantle with scenic views on an additional balcony.
The master bedroom suite is a world in itself with a vaulted and beamed ceiling, marble fireplace, an adjacent sitting room with custom cabinetry and lighted shelves overlooking the mature trees on Turtle Creek Boulevard. His-and-her bathrooms and closets also are standouts. Down the hall from the master bedroom is an ensuite guest bedroom, an office, and exercise room.
Each of the residence’s three levels feature beautiful views of the exclusive Place des Vosges manicured grounds and Turtle Creek neighborhood. In addition to an elevator servicing the entire home, there is a two-car garage finished with stone flooring. This home reflects the beauty of this gated community along Turtle Creek.
The Neighborhood: Turtle Creek
If one were to assign a personality to the Turtle Creek neighborhood, this elegant yet unpretentious community north of downtown and west of Uptown might be considered the kindly grandfather of Dallas. Turtle Creek played a prominent role in the city's early history and has quite a few stories to tell. And as you will see on a drive down Turtle Creek Boulevard, all of them are quite fascinating.
Turtle Creek runs alongside a scenic tributary of the Trinity River, starting in Reverchon Park and winding down through the greater Oak Lawn district into the adjacent Highland Park. As is often the case with land tracts containing natural resources, real estate in the area is at a premium. According to the Turtle Creek Association, which was subsequently formed to preserve, protect and enhance the Turtle Creek Corridor, Turtle Creek comprises approximately 80 city blocks with an unheard of (at least in Dallas) 90 acres of green space. Many grand estates, luxury townhomes and modern high-rises have subsequently risen up over the years to claim this urban utopia as their own.
Anyone looking for upscale living and convenience without the outdoor maintenance responsibilities of home ownership will find Turtle Creek a wonderful place to call home. It also offers:
- Close proximity to Dallas Love Field, West Village, Uptown attractions including the American Airlines Center, and the Highland Park Village
- Recreational opportunities galore including instant access to the Katy Trail
- Cultural attractions such as the Dallas Theater Center and nearby downtown Arts District
