Candy Sale of the Week, One: Huge Custom Mayfair Residence Overlooks Lee Park, Arlington Hall, Turtle Creek for $949,900

Published October 26, 2011 by Candy Evans

I did not know this: the Mayfair at Turtle Creek is the only condo on Turtle Creek that lets owners choose their own front doors to their units. I really like that, removes the hotel-y, institutional feel you get at so many condos, even the priciest. (I always walk down a condo hall and try to visualize it in ten or twenty years. Will this hall be all scuffed up? Will it look like Hotel Febreeze, that Gawd-awful hotel I stayed in for all of one night in NYC one summer ago with the filthiest hallways?) This unit has a custom Solara iron entry door that is stunning and totally removes you from the condo feel. In fact, I think The Mayfair has the LEAST condo feel of any on Turtle Creek. But I digress…

Unit 404 is pretty nice. Only two bedrooms, but they are ginormous, two and a half baths, multiple living areas, extra storage and three covered assigned parking spaces. The one-owner home ha 3300 square feet and has been customized to a an Old World look — custom and faux wall finishes everywhere, Italian tiles, coves, arches and lights.  

Living/dining combo, two loggia terraces overlooking Lee Park & downtown Dallas. The study has custom solid wood built-ins, custom hardwoods, H & H closets, plantation shutters on every window. The master has two walk-in closets outfitted with extra moveable rods and built-in drawers. The luxury bath actually deserves the title, what with porcelanosa tiles and granite. The eat-in kitchen has laundry area off plus pantry, Dacor gas range, built-in oven & microwave, Sub-zero, Asko dishwasher.

When you buy here you get, of course, 24 hour impeccable concierge and valet services. There is a pool, gardens, newly upgraded fitness center, and the famous 24th floor Mayfair Sky Club and Billiard Room. Beside that three car parking slot is climate controlled storage. You know what they say: you can never be too thin, too rich, or have too many closets….
