Nothing should surprise us when it comes to Dallas real estate. Let’s face it, Dallas is a hub of all things hip and cool.
However, once in a while a property comes along that impresses even those with the most discriminating of tastes. A property such as this is the Vendome on Turtle Creek.
Turtle Creek Opulence
As far as Dallas real estate is concerned, and condominium properties for that matter, Vendome on Turtle Creek takes top prize when it comes to opulence. In fact, any condominium property that boasts home prices anywhere from $ 500,000 to more than $ 2 million is something to talk about.
This 20-floor, 119-unit property, which is located in the heart of the much desired Turtle Creek neighborhood, impresses from the start. From its French-inspired courtyard to beautifully appointed lobby, the Vendome is a fine example of the best that Dallas real estate has to offer.
Impressive Amenities Abound
Some of the impressive amenities offered to the residents of the Vendome include: furnished guest suites; a private library; a private swimming pool; and a sauna. Each guest of the Vendome is greeted by uniformed valet attendants and the Parisian ambience is evident the moment you step into the grand entrance and lobby.
The interior features are just as impressive as the building itself, as they include: hardwood flooring; beautifully detailed crown moldings; soaring ceilings; marble and granite detailing; custom cabinetry; and gourmet kitchens. In addition, each home is protected with a state-of-the-art security system.
The Vendome tower, which is named after the famed Hotel de Vendome in Paris, is a $ 90 million project and is located on over two acres of private ground. This property was overseen by the Manhattan Construction Company, a contractor based out of Dallas. The project was developed by the Setai Group, based out of New York City.
Construction of the Vendome tower began in August 2000 after the demolition of a couple low-rise office buildings and parking garages.
The penthouses of the Vendome are particularly impressive as far as Dallas real estate is concerned. The Winspear penthouse, for example, features over 16,000 square feet of living space and 20 rooms. Just some of the features of this penthouse residence includes four suites; five bathrooms; two half bathrooms; a media room; a club room; a golf room; and a swimming pool on the 18th floor. Priced at a whopping $ 8.5 million, this famed penthouse residence took over four years to complete.
The interior features of the Winspear are opulent, to say the least: antique chandeliers; parquet floors; custom-designed silk wall coverings; European marble fireplaces; and rare, carved walnut French 17th century entry doors.
Similar penthouse units feature sweeping views, terraces; massive master bedrooms with his-and-her bathrooms and walk-in closets; wood and marble floors; and guest suites.
If you are seeking the finest in urban dwellings, the Vendome features the best location with all the best that condo living can offer.
