Photos: Former Dallas Cowboy Michael Jenkins sells luxury condo en route to Oakland
Take a peek inside!
DALLAS I am very excited that Michael Jenkins put this pad on the market — want to know why? I am dying to see what The Sorrento looks like! The Sorrento is a luxury mid-rise in Preston Hollow that was built about 2006 or so. I hear it is just hot stuff, and now Bill Griffin is marketing the properties.
I remember the namesake Italian restaurant that was located at this address years ago. It was behind the post office on Turtle Creek, and there was a wonderful fortune teller at the bar. Great food. Many memories. In any case, Jenkins, now a cornerback for the Oakland Raiders, lived here when he played for the Cowboys. Now he wants to shed this three bedroom, three and one half bath condo with a terrace off of the main living area. Amenities include an infinity edge pool, entertainment deck, a cappuccino bar (how cool is that!), a business center, gym, and concierge. I do not have to tell you about the location unless you have just arrived here from, oh, say Chechnya. This particular pad, 8616 Turtle Creek #412, is about 2,044 square feet and comes with a two-car garage space.
I need to seriously check this place out. You know I am ga-ga over the Pink Wall. The location, as I said, rules: a block or so off Northwest Highway, Central to your east, Dallas North Tollway to your west, and Northwest Highway to take you just about anywhere — NorthPark, Preston Center, Central Market and Tom Thumb at Preston Royal, a better route to DFW than LBJ for the next four years! Asking is $419,000 with HOA dues of $502? Listing agent, none other than Rogers Healy.
The Sorrento is sounding like a pretty decent deal. I wonder if they serve a good carbonara at that Cappucino bar?
