4625 Cole building Ext

Townhomes are growing more and more popular in Dallas, as more larger, older homes are scraped and subdivided into blocks of three-story townhomes.

This community, located just off of Knox and Cole, features a contemporary facade and really beautiful interiors. And at $415,000, this lovely townhome is perfect for those who want a walkable, urban location with access to great shopping and restaurants with a reasonable price tag.

There’s a lot to love about townhomes, especially when they’re in a prime location like Cedar Springs. You get your own garage space, perfect for storing your car and bike and maybe even a scooter, as well as plenty of outdoor living areas. But there’s a sticking point for me that has long been a turnoff to townhomes and condos: homeowners associations.

After reading Jon Anderson’s many columns on the issues, I’ve decided that HOAs just aren’t for me. Unfortunately, that means most townhomes and condos are also not for me. However, there is one great property that is in a fantastic location — right near Cedar Springs and Douglas Avenue — that is completely HOA free and ready for your personal touches!

Cedar Springs Front

Sometimes I wish I was living in a townhome. They are great if you want more space but not so much maintenance. Some are semi-detached, some are fully detached, but the big upside to them is that you get the convenience of condo living without neighbors above and below, plus many townhomes come with tidy yards and balconies that make outdoor parties a breeze.

Cedar Springs Living

This townhome at 4830 Cedar Springs is just perfect for someone wanting to take a step up from a condo but not ready for the work of a fully detached single-family home. With two bedrooms, two and a half baths, and plenty of living space downstairs, this three-story townhome will give you room to spread out!

Cedar Springs Kitchen

It’s available for $1,900 a month — a good price considering its prime location and 1,500-plus square feet. It’s located in the heart of the buzzing Oak Lawn area, which has tons of great restaurants and shopping within walking distance. And since pets are allowed, you can put one foot in front of the other with fido and do some people watching, too!

Cedar Springs Master

If you’re not keen on walking everywhere, there’s a two-car garage with this property. Other amenities include hardwood floors, washer/dryer hookups, stainless steel appliances, and huge closets.

Lexington park

I always dreamed of moving into downtown Dallas, but there just doesn’t seem to be much in the way of family-friendly properties with the amenities I want in the price point our family can appreciate. Still, I love the idea of urban living, being close to shops and restaurants, and having quick access to mass transit.

Normally you won’t find things like this if you have an address in the suburbs, so color me surprised when we stumbled across the townhomes of Lexington Park at Rice Field.

Priced in the $200,000 range, these townhomes have excellent finish-out and tons of great features. There are five different floorplans available ranging from 2,126 to 2,351 square feet, including both 3/2/2 and 3/3/2 units.

I love the master bath in the model unit, which you can see in the very neat video above. Seriously, the Branch Team did an excellent job marketing this new development!

What do you think?

When I first met my husband, he was living in a haphazardly converted four-plex off of Oram Street. With the disjointed layout and windows in strange configurations paired with his hopeless bachelor decor, I could not stand his place. And I married him anyway.

These types of duplexes and four-plexes are still common in the Ross Avenue Annex area, which is just east of downtown, but more modern rentals and townhomes are being built as their decrepit counterparts are being torn down. This one, I consider to be an upgrade.

This particular townhome, Unit No. 1 at 5841 Oram St., feels just as brand-spanking-new as it is. Completed just this year, this 1,400-square-foot unit is marketed by Jacob Moss of Keller Williams Elite — Park Cities for $259,900 (Unit No. 2, which is 380 square feet larger, is priced at $289,900)

You get two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths in this super-modern development designed by Josh Lecomte, as well as a private two-car garage. Pet lovers will love the fenced in private yard, too.

There are some really sleek touches in this home, which is an exercise in contrast. The wood floors are warm and bright while the kitchen cabinets are dark and sleek. The black granite counters go perfectly with the stainless appliances, too.

You’d never find a bathroom like this one inside one of the nearby rental buildings, that’s for sure. I love the oversized tile and the tub/shower combo — a feature that is kind of rare for a townhome.

The bottom level has concrete floors and a separate bed and bathroom, which would make this a great property for a live/work arrangement or a single with a roomate. Maybe even a family with an older child?

In all, I consider this townhome a great value with a great location. What do you think?
