They say the beauty of life rests in the journey — and for Tony and Sue Sanders, the next step quickly became the best chapter. Hailing from Plano, the Sanders found themselves in unchartered waters as empty nesters when their daughter Katie graduated from high school. Tony and Sue were ready for a lifestyle change and their search brought them to Bleu Ciel’s front steps.
Their search began casually with no exact vision of what this “lifestyle change” looked like. Tony and Sue began perusing potential residences spanning from Dallas to Fort Worth. A year into their search, it came to a serendipitous halt. With help from their daughter, the couple had discovered their oasis resting in the very heart of Dallas — Bleu Ciel, 3130 N. Harwood Street.
For the Sanders, Bleu Ciel represented a luxury living experience at the intersection of urban and elegance.
What Tony and Sue cherish most about this new lifestyle is the walkability and access. Bleu Ciel stands majestically in the epicenter of uptown Dallas, with the sought-after Harwood District as its front yard. The two can saunter into Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar on a Saturday afternoon, indulging in delicious cuisine and craft cocktails from its coveted garden patio. Tony loves the instant access to Mavericks and Stars games at American Airlines Center, just a stone’s throw away from their residence. Sue’s favorite is to take a stroll down Katy Trail or to Klyde Warren Park on a lazy Sunday.
