Turtle Creek Home Embraces Nature and Vibrancy
3901 Turtle Creek Boulevard #1, Dallas, Texas

The Architectural Centerpiece of Places Des Vosges  Sold

Architect James Langford designed the architecturally significant urban neighborhood around #1 Place des Vosges. The triangular plan of the grouped homes on the perimeter warmly embrace the interior common area of green space and #1 Place des Vosges, positioned to enjoy the visual axis to the parks of Turtle Creek and downtown Dallas.

Balcony Living Room and Veranda

One of my favorite spaces within #1 Place des Vosges is the balcony veranda and living room. While you will enjoy the sunlight spilling into the voluminous spaces, the balcony veranda takes the greatest advantage of the gentle breezes from the southeast that drift through the trees and over Turtle Creek. The deliberate opening in the perimeter of houses was created to provide #1 Place des Vosges clear sight lines and views of nature and downtown Dallas.

Parisian Design—Modern Living

Just as in Paris, 400-year-old buildings are often furnished in a modern style or in an eclectic formal style, but the feel of the residences is current.

At #1 Place des Vosges the open living space that also opens to the spacious kitchen, has been located on the second floor. The 12-foot tall ceilings and walls with 10-foot tall windows provide sunlit rooms and privacy as you look into trees that subtly filter an elegant backdrop of the Place des Vosges homes on the perimeter.

Master Bedroom Provides Privacy and Views

The master bedroom suite, an additional bedroom and a study located on the third floor provide the greatest privacy and elegance. The large master bedroom with tall ceilings projects gracious comfort and calm. The master bathroom provides the luxury of double closets and double vanities.

First Floor of Residence Provides Convenience

The first floor is dedicated to more pedestrian functions and uses, such as wine storage, garages, media room and a guest bedroom. These are delightful private spaces that add to the home and do not compete with the more opulent rooms and views.

Elegance of High-Rise Apartment—Warmth of Single-Family Home

Often high rise apartments are cold and attached single-family homes are surrounded by concrete. Here, #1 Place Des Vosges is sited on the green common area with extended views of treetops and nature.

Place des Vosges is the only Dallas neighborhood and urban enclave of homes that is secure, sophisticated and warm. With only 16 homes protected by an eight-foot tall rough limestone wall and by a gatehouse staffed with 24-hour security, the neighborhood is more secure than a high-rise. Your own garage bays keep you from having to navigate high-rise parking garages. The grouping of houses and common areas create a warmth of a single-family neighborhood. The verdant common area and abundant trees fill the shared space with nature and you will also enjoy just being steps away from the nature of Turtle Creek and the vibrancy of the surrounding neighborhoods.

Perfect Home for Empty Nesters, Those With Extended Families and Part-Time Dallas Residents

Many homeowners in Place des Vosges have ample resources to live anywhere in the world, and they often spend time in homes outside of Dallas. But, ultimately, who would not want to come back to Dallas, especially when you can come back to a 5,200 square foot home that is warm, inviting, and fun for entertaining.
