After helping more than 170 buyers and sellers move in, out, and all around Dallas' luxe Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, and after living there herself since it opened, Sharon Quist has seen the best of the best in Uptown living.
But the top-producing, long-time Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agent would quickly let you know she is still regularly and pleasantly surprised at how exceptionally customized units in this 21-story building can be.
Case in point: 2525 N. Pearl St., No. 1402, a rare Ritz-Carlton three-bedroom end unit with dead-on downtown views priced at $4,595,000. Side note: Quist has had the rare privilege of representing the seller – and buyer – every time this unit has been listed, which is thrice now. To say she knows it well is an understatement.
Quist revels in showcasing to others what she has found so special about her high-rise home community of 11 years.
The building boasts a light-and-bright, newly remodeled lobby and owners' living room with book-matched marble fireplace, pop-up TVs, and seating for building-wide happy hours and private parties. There is also a continuously manned concierge desk and valet stand.
Unit 1402 features a double-doored foyer with inlaid marble floors, mirrored walls, and an art wall that can accommodate an installation, as well. Around the corner is an entry hall art niche opening to a private office or media room.
"Art collectors will find a variety of places to show off their most cherished pieces," Quist says. "The 10-foot ceilings ensure even large ones have space to breathe without overpowering the room."
A marble gallery borders the great room with fireplace and the dining room, with a combination wet bar/butler's pantry providing a touch of practicality for entertaining amid the extravagance.
The great room opens onto a private and protected 377-square-foot terrace, as well as to the library, which is adorned in custom millwork.
A remodeled white granite kitchen with brushed gold hardware boasts Wolf, Sub-Zero and Asko appliances, and opens to a large breakfast area and the heart of the home — a family room with fireplace overlooking the cityscape.
The split master suite with corner fireplace, measuring 25 by 14 feet, is the stuff of dreams, made real. The marble spa bath has a walk-in shower, jetted garden tub, and dual closets. Secondary bedrooms share a bath. All told, the home encompasses 4,257 square feet (per tax rolls).
As if you needed any more reasons to add the Residences at Ritz-Carlton to your consideration set, included with your new Elan smart-mansion-in-the-sky are three assigned parking spaces and 5-star hotel amenities – room service, onsite Dean Fearing restaurant, full-service spa, fitness center, community pool, and proximity to Klyde Warren Park, Arts District, and the Central Business District.
