Carrera Marble is a classic stone, beloved for its timeless, elegant appeal.
In today’s Tuesday Two Hundred, it reigns supreme in a Preston Tower condo that’s undergone a big renovation. Located at 6211 W. Northwest Hwy Apt. 604, this home has marble galore in the kitchen and bathrooms. This is a 2-2 with 1,130 square feet, built in 1966.
The condo is owned by Valerie Elizabeth of Society Stylist. She personally oversaw all renos and picked everything herself—her chic touch is everywhere. It was creatively and meticulously updated, and the results are impressive. Similar units inside the Northwest Highway loop could be two to three times as much, said listing agent Brian Ellison.
“With its Midcentury lines, and proximity to NorthPark and Preston Center shopping and dining, Preston Tower is gaining popularity,” he said. “The current HOA has a strong commitment and is spending on common area improvements—I consider this building one of the best values in highrise living in the area and clients like [Elizabeth] are making significant investments in their property.”
It was listed yesterday by Ellison with Clay Stapp + Co. for $289,000. Monthly HOA dues are $797.
The floor-to-ceiling windows and doors in this condo make natural light a huge accessory—and selling point. It’s so bright and feels bigger than its 1,130 square feet. The open floorplan helps with that, too. The line-of-sight is clear from living room to kitchen and that’s a great thing. That kitchen needs to be noticed!
It starts with on-trend Shaker cabinets in white, and the Carrera Marble in the kitchen has a beautiful leather finish. Stainless steel Bosch appliances are a luxe touch, including a built-in wine refrigerator and space for a safe. The large island is high-tech, with six electrical outlets and an ethernet connection, and Elizabeth has seated 14 for a dinner party.
The master bedroom is restful and bright, with a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom (marble, marble, marble! And a frameless glass shower!). There is bonus area in the master that can be used for a small office or extra closet space.
Throughout the condo, there is lots of built-in storage and pocket doors, a thoughtful touch in a smaller footprint to maximize space (and prevent awkward swinging doors). The oversized balcony with wood-grain tile offers a lovely view of green trees and the azure blue swimming pool below. Amenities for the building also include a tennis court, fitness room, club area, conference rooms, and a secured basement parking space.
If we were the betting types, we’d put our money on this condo to go under contract pretty quickly—the kitchen alone should sell the place! But with so much more, buyers will be delighted with what they find in this property.
