Empty Nesters Looking for Unique Luxury
Posted May 11th, 2012 | by The Update
When empty nesters are looking for a new home, they’re coming into the search with plenty of experience; they’ve done the “starter home,” the quaint family home in a kid-friendly neighborhood, and probably a few upgrade moves in-between. So it makes sense that when they’re looking for a place to enjoy their next phase in life, they’d want something unique from the homes they’ve already lived in.
That’s probably why 3526 Gillespie, recently sold by Ilene Christ of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, went to a pair of empty-nesters. The home is just full of unique luxury, from the built-in 1,000 gallon seasoned aquarium running through the kitchen and living room to the amazing rooftop retreat that offers a spectacular view of Uptown Dallas.
“The home was purchased by an empty-nester couple from the Park Cities,” said Ilene. “They were looking for a great Uptown location so they could be in the middle of everything, so this home was a perfect fit. Plus, the compelling architecture, private gated court, and elevator running from the ground floor to the rooftop deck all contributed to their interest.”
