Where can you find a new home inside the loop for less than $500,000? No, this isn’t a trick question. It’s nigh impossible, and if you want a new build, be prepared to wait as most homes are taking ages to go from teardown to move in.
Or you could buy a brand new custom home with a low-maintenance floor plan with access to a resort-style amenity center in a quiet, gated enclave near Walnut Hill and North Central Expressway. It’s a brand new development from Hines called Merion at Midtown Park, and it gives homebuyers something they’ve been waiting for — brand new homes at affordable price points in a convenient location.
Located off of Rambler and Meadow roads, Merion at Midtown Park is just a stone’s throw away from the Walnut Hill DART Rail station and the almost-complete SoPac trail, which will connect the neighborhood to the miles upon miles of Dallas cycling paths that traverse the city. Fancy something a bit more rugged? Harry Moss Park — known for its mountain bike trails — is practically next door. And if you’re concerned about who will actually be next door in years to come, prospective homebuyers should find comfort in the protected views offered by Royal Oaks Country Club next door, as well as a lush easement for nearby White Rock Creek.
For those who wish to have a live/work/play lifestyle, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital is just a short walk away, as is Kindred Hospital Dallas Central, Walnut Hill Medical Center, and many other medical office buildings. North Central Expressway is a small jog to the west, offering you a 15 minute commute to downtown Dallas.
For the day-to-day necessities, there’s just about anything you could possibly need at Preston Hollow Village, and if you can’t find it there, Park Lane and its myriad shops is just down Greenville Avenue.
But what’s an enviable location if you don’t have terrific builders? Luckily for Merion at Midtown Park, they do. The development will total 298 homes at completion, which includes four phases. Coventry Homes, K. Hovnanian Homes, and Chesmar Homes are offering a broad range of floor plans and finish-out.
Looks like a winning combination for Dallas homebuyers who want new construction, low-maintenance living, and a central location just seven minutes from downtown Dallas.
