As teardowns in the increasingly dense East Village area create new opportunities for urban infill, more and more award-winning architects are designing new riffs on the classic townhome structure. This particular project — the Deere Street Residences — was designed by Dallas-based FAR+DANG Architecture and is a particularly beautiful example.
We’re thrilled to feature this listing from David Griffin & Co. Realtor Don Neilson as our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. Packed to the gills with over-the-top, luxury upgrades, you’ll be amazed at what you can find in this spectacularly executed unit.
The lines, shapes, windows, and materials make this two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath townhome at 4402 Deere Street really stand out. And with a 1,531-square-foot open floor plan poised on top of a spacious two-car garage, you’ll have tons of room for your modern furnishings, plus a car and maybe even a bike and a vespa — this is urban Dallas, after all, so you might find your commute become happily brief.
Of course, the interiors of Unit No. 1 will make any urban dweller happy. Large windows bring in plenty of light, and the sleek wood floors are beautiful and low-maintenance. The accent wall shows off the unique vaulted, asymmetrical roofline. And the kitchen? It’s a real stunner.
The kitchen boasts more than $20,000 worth of appliance upgrades, notes Neilson, who has listed Unit No. 1 for $499,000. That comes out to about $325 per square foot. Whew! We love the glass-door refrigerator — one of the more stylish, built-in looks from GE that offers tons of storage and sleek, sexy profiles. There’s a six-burner range top and a stainless steel built-in oven, too. Breakfast bar seating provides a pretty perch from which you can ogle the views of Cityplace in the not-too-far-off distance.
Wine aficionados will adore the wine room, complete with wine cooler and additional built-in cabinetry. Me? I’m all about that designer wallpaper.
The rest of the home really shows off the midcentury-modern elements that FAR+DANG worked into this urban townhome. The windows bring in views and light, but are angled to provide plenty of privacy without fussy window dressings. We love the polished concrete floors, too, and the ample closet space.
Now, if you have to have a car with your urban townhome, this garage will thrill you. Heck, that little drop-top SUV thrills me. And it fits, while also leaving room for a Vespa and sidecar, a couple of bikes, and whatever else you need room for.
Neilson says that the seller is very motivated, and that other key upgrades include an outdoor kitchen and living area, a hot tub, and surround sound throughout. Sounds like a perfect urban townhome, and definitely a High Caliber Home!
