Winner of the Live Well Network TV show Dallas Episode Sweet Retreats. Watch episode via link.

Dallas Morning News article 3/26/84 states: The sad truth is that Sale Street just became too valuable to remain charming. During the 70's and 80's an annual Sale Street Fair was held in conjunction with Neiman Marcus Fortnight. It was held right outside this property and there were as many as 600 artisans. The property was an antique store from 1930 to the 1980's. Mrs. Anna L. Erwin operated Hitching Post Antiques and lived upstairs. Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt was one of her clients along with other celebrities. Mrs. Erwin was the first of the Antique shop owners on Sale Street to live above her shop.

The building was built by Justice Tom C. Clark in 1921 who later was appointed by Harry S. Truman as US Attorney General in 1945 and to the US Supreme Court in 1949. Judge Clark and his wife lived upstairs and Judge Alexander and his wife lived downstairs.

Rosewood Properties purchased the property the same time they bought the Shepard W. King estate (cotton magnate)and redeveloped it as the Mansion Hotel. Rosewood used this property as there headquarters until they completed the Crescent complex. No tax on stays of thirty days or longer.

Beautifully renovated and appointed with all modern amenities. Fully landscaped with attached parking garage and wrought iron fenced yard. Close to Dallas's finest amenities, the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, the Katy trail, and surrounded by multi-million dollar homes. This entire upstairs suite exudes the finest in early 20th century elegance and history combined with state of the art conveniences. It is the best of both worlds, the perfect accomodation for business or pleasure.

This unique and beautiful 2200 sq. ft. suite encompasses the entire second floor and hosts two bedrooms and two and half baths. The master bedroom has a king size bed, with a queen size in the guest bedroom. The den and large living room have french doors that open onto a upstairs balcony. The living room also hosts a beautiful wood burning fireplace with period mantle. There is a formal dining room, and a 52' flat screen TV with blue ray, netflix, cable and WIFI in the den. Beautiful hardwood floors appoint this suite, except the kitchen and bathrooms, which are granite and marble and it has a full sized washer and dryer. The master bedroom has carpet. The kitchen is roomy with a breakfast area, and has granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances. Many windows afford lots of light and beautiful views. There is a common courtyard with table, umbrella, and chairs for relaxing and visiting. This suite is full of history, elegance and is located in Uptown Dallas, just minutes away from wonderful restaurants, bistros, coffee shops, theaters, shopping, the Katy trail, hospitals, museums and performing art centers. It is 10 minutes to Love Field and 20 minutes to DFW. We invite you to come see for yourself! This is a triplex building this unit is the entire second floor it has stairs at the front and also at the back leading to garage.

About Michael Klement

Owner is a Native Texan and resident of Dallas since 1982 the same year as his start in the commercial real estate business in Dallas.

Michael Klement purchased this house in 1990

Why Michael Klement chose Dallas

A labor of love I remodeled this property from the ground up with the goal of keeping the integrity of the original design.

What makes this house unique

Truly last of the Mohicans scenario. Properties like this were torn down to make way for the high rises and new multi-family developments. In the event you have a large group there are two one bedroom study units downstairs vrbo 314820 and 500664.

This is a very nice place and the location can not be beat. I was a bit concerned about the few semi negative reviews but I know Dallas and this is a prime location so I was willing to take a chance. The place was spotless and well appointed. I would highly recommend this vrbo property if you want to be in close proximity to the best Dallas has to offer.

Could be better

  • 3 of 5

We believe a bathroom should be clean & the master bath was not. Bring your own toilet paper as this was thinner than anything I've ever seen. Good neighborhood as well as good parking.

Owner's Response: My apologies if the bathroom was not clean. I will have the cleaning person do deep cleaning and make sure that this does not happen again. The toilet paper is Scotts which I purposely but because it helps prevent toilet clogs because it disperses. The reason has nothing to do with the quality of the items provided.

Great location, great space

  • 3 of 5

The listing was exactly as described and all the amenities were good. The location was AMAZING. The property was well-maintained but it could have been cleaner. Especially the master bathroom and the closet in the master. There were robes inside that looked like they may have been used by a previous renter. Cleanliness is very important to me and because of this alone I am giving 3 stars. It was far from dirty but for the price I expect the place to be spotless.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I will make sure that the robes are washed and the cleaning is stepped up.

Amazing location & even better stay

  • 5 of 5

We came to Dallas, many for the first time, to enjoy all the festivities happening around the city including the Texas State Fair, Red River Rivalry and Patriots versus Cowboys @ Jerry World. We were blown away by the size and beauty of the home. With 6 of us staying on the top floor we were more than comfortable and didnt even use several of the rooms. The home itself is a beautiful old style Dallas home: large and glamorous, but well worth the price. We had no issues with the other couples staying below us and even made friends. The proximity to downtown and Katy Trail allowed us to leave the car in the garage the entire weekend! Uber rides to the state fair and Jerry World were next to nothing when splitting 6 ways. I would most DEFINITELY stay at this property again. Thanks for the great times :)
