Turtle Creek is a tony neighborhood in Dallas, with lovely parks, historically significant architecture, and the largest collection of residential highrises in the city.
Addresses in Turtle Creek are typically associated with big bucks—according to city-data.com, the average estimated value of detached houses in 2010 was $791,697 (compare that to a city-wide average of $236,454). But there are deals to be had if you’re willing to live in a smaller highrise unit.
Today, we’re looking at a condo in the Renaissance On Turtle Creek, 3225 Turtle Creek Blvd. #1533B, a 1-1 with 831 square feet. It is situated along the eponymous Turtle Creek and offers a sophisticated residence and private suite floor with keycard access for under $200K.
The Renaissance condos were built in 1998 and this unit has monthly HOA fees of $449. That includes an underground parking space, access to a health and fitness center, dry sauna, swimming pool and sundeck, Jacuzzi, business center, a 24-hour doorman, complimentary valet parking, and concierge services.
This condo is newly listed by Joe Kobell at Ebby Halliday Realtors for $198,500.
The Turtle Creek corridor is kept beautiful in part by the Turtle Creek Association, which works hand-in-hand with the city of Dallas Park & Recreation and Streets Departments to preserve, protect, and enhance the physical environment and quality of life in the neighborhood.
In 2011, for example, they funded the design and engineering of limestone-faced erosion protection walls along the creek from the Hall Street dam to the Bowen Street Bridge. This project resulted in one of the most picturesque parts of the creek.This is a cozy space, and the layout maximizes the square footage with an open floorplan in the main living area. Big windows and a sliding glass door lead out to the balcony, and make the living room-kitchen area bright.
This condo has been updated with laminate wood floors throughout and fresh paint. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, upgraded cabinets, an extended slab granite countertop with breakfast bar, and a full-size washer and dryer are included in the nearby utility closet. The master bedroom offers an area for a home office or lounge chair. The ensuite bathroom has marble countertops and a large walk-in closet. Love the balcony, which has views of Turtle Creek and the pool-patio area below.
Here’s a closer look at the pool area, with a grill, landscaping, Jacuzzi, cabana, lounge chairs, and great views.
The condo has access to two fitness rooms, one of which has this dry sauna.
Unit 1533B has a lot to offer, and it’s move-in ready for a buyer looking to get a Turtle Creek address for under $200K.
