Life in skyscrapers is hotter than ever. It’s like everyone has suddenly discovered the secret to an amenity-driven lifestyle.
We’ve featured some great condos over the years, but none as unique as this rare Bleu Ciel two-story high-rise.
This is not just a luxury Bleu Ceil apartment.
Bleu Ciel is a luxury high-rise building that has always offered what they call a merger – two units combined into one.
But entrepreneur Rick Salomon bought FOUR to combine them into one. There’s simply nothing else like it in Dallas. And it comes with eight private garage spaces. This is unheard of in this part of town.
And now for the dirt on this Sky Blue beauty.
Remember, this is CandysDirt.com, so I’m going to spread some of that dirt.
If you’ve never followed celebrity news, you might not realize that the seller is the same man who married or dated some of the world’s most beautiful and high-profile celebrities. He was once married to our favorite Baywatch beauty Pamela Anderson, and the daughter whose character lived in America’s best zip code, Shannen Doherty of 90210. And then there’s Paris Hilton, but I’ll let you Google that in the privacy of your own home.
Here we have an owner who has repeatedly demonstrated his excellent taste in women, which has extended to his good taste in the home. He’s owned luxury real estate in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, as well as that rare Sky Blue stunner.
The simple fact is that this is a personalized residence that you won’t encounter anywhere else.
Salomon has thoughtfully laid it out with the ground floor as a fun floor. The home theater, game room, and children’s bedrooms are here, along with one of the two master suites. Climb the floating staircase to the top floor, which offers more privacy. The formal living space, office and master suite are on this level.
An avid art collector, he designed the house to accommodate his extensive collection. There are five bedrooms and seven bathrooms spread over 7,169 square feet on floors 24 and 25.
Confidentiality is a given at Bleu Ciel.
Each floor is accessible by key fob only to people living on that floor. The amenities here keep getting better. In addition to the world-class spa, fitness center, wine cellar, owners’ lounge and two junior Olympic pools, they will soon have a golf simulator.
Of course, amenities are key when choosing a luxury skyscraper, but Bleu Ciel offers some of the most expansive private outdoor terraces in the country.
“The great thing about this building is the community that’s been built there,” said Brad Freeman, registration officer at Compass. Freeman has sold 13 units — over $32 million in the building — so he understands the clientele and what they want.
Freeman has this beautiful, one-of-a-kind Sky Blue two-story luxury apartment 2505 at 3130 N. Harwood St. listed for $10 million.
