Everyone has fantasized about what it would be like to live in a hotel, with room and turn-down services at your beck and call. If you have around $6 million, here’s your chance.
Earlier this month, Unit 2E at the Mansion on Turtle Creek’s residential side was listed for a cool $5.5 million. “It’s a jewel box,” says listing agent Minnette Murray. The home features more than 3,500 square feet of indoor living space and three bedrooms, as well as a nearly-700-square-foot balcony spanning the length of the unit.
Known for its luxe rooms and services—and high-profile clientele—the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek was opened by billionaire heiress Caroline Hunt in 1981. The Mansion Residences came later, in 1994, but the homeowners were just as notable. Over the years, the Residences have housed folks like Bo Pilgrim, Shirley Pollock, and more.
Living here is like living in the hotel, Murray says, especially because “anything that a hotel guest could enjoy, the Residences are privy to.” Residents have access to all the hotel’s amenities, like the pool, gym, banquet rooms, on-site notary, and concierge services. There are on-site dog walkers and dry-cleaning pickup services. Plus, there’s 24-hour security and room service. The unit comes with a little leather handbook, says Murray, “that just has really everything that you can possibly want at any point in the day or night will be delivered to you.”
Plus, the staff takes care to get to know the residents and learn their preferences, says Lili Luth, the daughter of this unit’s homeowner. “They take care of everything for you.”
Unlike hotel living, however, the condos can be personalized. The homeowner contracted Magee Architects’ Paul Friedman and interior designer Jan Showers to renovate the home in 2021. Almost every surface was touched, Murray says. They coved some of the ceilings and redid the bathrooms and kitchen. The layout didn’t change much, but “they made a few tweaks to the floor plan that I think have a big effect on how the property lives,” she says. They added a new bar area and converted an office into a third bedroom.
“It was like a museum renovation,” Luth says. Showers, who oversaw the project, was meticulous and thoughtful with changes, she says. Take the bathroom showers. Instead of sticking your hand in and turning the water on under the shower head, “all of her hot and cold levers are put on the wall where you just put your hand in and turn it on” while staying dry, she says.
After all the renovations, and with all the hotel amenities, “it is just a real soothing, fabulous, well-done space for somebody,” Murray says. “It is such a beautiful home.”
