Living inside 635 makes perfect sense for the under 40 set, especially considering how kid-friendly many neighborhoods are becoming as homebuyers are choosing to live closer to work, shopping, and amenities. For a low-maintenance lifestyle that allows you to lock and leave while not skirting amenities, this great unit inside the Vallera Condominiums is the perfect choice.
With two bedrooms, two baths, and more than 1,300 square feet, this condo is great for a young couple, or even a young family who wants to be close to arts and culture inside one of Dallas’ most walkable neighborhoods. Unit 107 at 3818 Holland Avenue is marketed by Hailey Hunt-Wagstaff of Dave Perry-Miller InTown for a reduced $274,900. thats a fabulous price considering the location and upgrades inside this unit. HOA dues are a reasonable $255, too.
The first thing you’ll notice when you walk in this unit is the hardwood floors, which span all the way to the French doors to the balcony. The dark-hued wood really makes the moulding and lovely neutral paint pop. The unit is fantastically open — great for having friends over — and features a gorgeous kitchen with beautiful honey-colored cabinets, granite counters, tumbled stone backsplash, and plenty of lighting. Of course, you’ll find stainless steel appliances, including a wine cooler.
The master suite is a great size, and has a perfect tone of grey on the walls, which is just a shade off from the carpet. I am not a lover of carpet in most cases, but in condos, I change my tune. Considering the fact that you’re not constantly tramping in and out, carpet inside a condo is a great idea to make the space feel more cozy and personal. And if you’re not a fan of what’s already there, it’s pretty inexpensive to replace.
The master bath is really lovely and just drenched in stone. It’s a five-piece affair with a generous-sized shower, a soaking tub, and a very nice vanity. The plain, frameless mirror is a bit boring, but if you’ve staked out Pintrest as much as I have, then surely you know that it’s a snap to add a frame around it.
I think what surprises me the most about this unit is the value. With a location like this and upgrades that many first-time homebuyers are looking for, this unit is a great place for someone looking to simplify inside the loop.
