There’s no better example of luxury high-rise living in Dallas than the Residences at the Ritz-Carlton in Uptown, and few condos can compete with this phenomenal Tower II penthouse owned by billionaire philanthropist Trevor Rees-Jones, founder, president and CEO of Chief Oil & Gas LLC.

Unit 2200, listed with Dave Perry-Miller agents Sharon Quist and Kathy Myers for $9 million, has 5,666 square feet, four bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths, kitchen built to entertain, multiple living areas, study, wrap-around balconies, and fireplace. There are designer touches and custom lighting throughout the elegantly transitional space. Light-colored hardwoods and coffered ceilings stretch through the living areas.

No surprise that the kitchen is as functional as it is beautiful, with custom glass-front cabinetry from Poggenpohl Dallas, Miele built-ins and huge island. There is also room for casual dining in the kitchen; more formal affairs can be conducted in the dining room.

It’s a full-floor penthouse, so there is plenty of privacy. Plus the new owner gets all of those famous Ritz-Carlton amenities, such as 24-hour concierge, security and valet services; housekeeping; private dining room and wine cellar; resort-style pool; fitness center; in-home spa treatments; and in-room dining from onsite restaurant Fearing’s.

This is the perfect location for downtown views, as you’re on the southernmost tip of Uptown, just caddy-corner to Victory Park, and there are no other high-rises in your way — at least until that Park District complex gets built next to Klyde Warren.
