Adding more single-family housing in downtown Dallas has definitely increased the vibrancy of our urban core, as the once desolate city center now has more full-time families and businesses. The days of downtown turning into a ghost town at 5 p.m. could be over.
If you want an urban lifestyle but don’t want to live in a high-rise, a townhome is the perfect compromise. Lucky for you, the Farmers Market area on the southeast side of downtown Dallas has a great inventory of relatively new builds, including this stunning unit listed by Sam Sawyer of The Collective Residential.
Of course, the best part of living in a townhome in downtown Dallas is the rooftop decks that bathe in the views of our city’s easily recognizable skyline.
To me, this additional outdoor living space is what markets the neighborhood and this unit — 2127 Minehampton — in particular. While Sawyer has listed this three-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bath, 2,302-square-foot townhome for $584,900, the million-dollar views come free of charge.
“There are incredible downtown views from rooftop deck, with an entrance off of a quiet courtyard,” Sawyer noted. “It’s within walking distance to Ruibal’s and all of the restaurants at the Farmer’s Market, and the location in the complex is one of the best on the market in the area.”
This particular home, built in 2015 and located within the Intown Homes at Farmers Market development, has a monthly HOA fee of $125 that includes exterior maintenance and full use of facilities, which includes a courtyard and pool.
And while the rooftop and courtyard are huge selling points, this home features some upgrades that you cannot ignore. Sawyer says that the kitchen features upgraded cabinets, which are beautiful and add so much storage to the space.
“Plantation shutters throughout the home and 12-foot-high ceilings give the unit tons of natural light,” he added. The third bedroom is located downstairs and functions great as an office, workout room, or a guest room, Sawyer noted. “The oversized master has a nice-sized master bath and great closet space.”
I love how airy it all feels — a challenge with these homes as they only have windows on two sides. It’s a soft transitional look that works well with the floor plan and finish-out, and conveys well with a variety of decor styles.
