Lease of the Week: Get Low Maintenance, Great Location With This University Park Condo

5801 Hillcrest Front

If you’re looking for high-end residential leasing in the Park Cities, just go ahead and dial up the Dave Perry-Miller offices, because it seems like they have curbed the market! Seriously, just about every single lease I’ve found in Highland Park and University Park is listed with a Dave Perry-Miller associate.

I suppose that’s a good thing, to have one brokerage as an exceptionally knowledgeable resource, especially when the inventory is as tight as it is in the Park Cities, and with competition as hot as it is. If you don’t want to do the same-old rigmarole of applying for a single family rental in the Park Cities only to find out it was leased right out from under you just moments ago, consider renting one of the amazing condos in the area. In fact, we have a great one on tap — 5801 Hillcrest, Unit 11. This is a penthouse-level unit that is open and airy and totally bright. As you’d expect from a Park Cities rental, this condo is luxurious inside, with gorgeous cabinetry and high-end finish-out, a coffered ceiling, and a lovely stone fireplace.

There are three bedrooms, two baths, and 2,100 square feet in this condo, making it perfect for a small family who wants to live inside Highland Park ISD, or perhaps even some SMU students or grad students, considering that the campus is just across the street. In fact, you’ve got pretty much everything you need within walking distance. If your kids are middle school-aged, McCulloch Intermediate is just around the corner, practically.

Really, this unit is fantastic for people who want a lock-and-leave lifestyle — something low-maintenance with great security — but without sacrificing location and space. You’ll also love that Snider Plaza is just up the street, and if you want to enjoy the finer things, Highland Park Village is just up Mockingbird. For those who commute downtown, you’re practically a hop from Highway 75.

You can lease this unit today for $4,500 a month, which is entirely reasonable considering the location.
