Weekends, a season, all year round: This is the definitive Dallas experience. Surrounded by world-class museums, imaginative parks, inspired architecture, and boundless cultural and dining adventures, this superbly crafted home at Museum Tower offers light-filled living areas and breathtaking panoramic views of one of America’s most exciting cities.
Appealing to wealthy second-home seekers and investors looking for a city-center base in one of Texas’ most vibrant metropolises, the capacious apartment is luxurious all the way, with Italian tiles in the bathrooms, custom-made fireplaces by Metzger, bespoke European oak flooring, top-of-the-line finishes, and specially designed lighting, including chandeliers by Jan Showers.
The Ultimate High-Rise Living: $8.6 Million Skyscraper Residence
Acclaimed architect William S. Briggs spent over two years transforming two concrete shell units into a surprisingly refined home brimming with classical millwork, luxurious finishes, and intricate details. “In short,” says just one of the journalists who have written about the residence, “the glistening glass and steel exterior of Museum Tower gives way to a fantastically contrasting, huge apartment filled with rich textures.”
No expense was spared in creating this private haven. At 6,200 square feet and occupying most of the 21st floor, it features two living areas, an elegant formal dining room, a gourmet kitchen, a walnut-paneled office, three large en-suite bedrooms, and elevators that open directly into the home. The mix of materials is sophisticated and lasting and includes limestone, walnut, onyx, marble, quartzite, and handmade antique Italian tiles. Says another journalist: “This lavish tower dwelling exudes a sense of permanence while still nodding to the future.”
Special features include detailed ceilings, custom-built fireplaces, select European flooring, specially designed lighting, and luxury fixtures. Says the architect, who thought of the individual spaces as part of a harmonious composition: “Though this home is situated in a city tower, it avoids all the clichés of being outwardly focused. It certainly emphasizes the outside views, but it also provides interior joy.”
The sleek tower’s many luxuries include 24-hour valet, concierge, fitness center, sauna, house manager, house car, dog walking, and poolside butler service. The home comes with four parking spaces and two storage units.
