Smart Townhome at 1910 Wickmere Mews Comes with Million Dollar View for a Steal

Let’s see. Should we start with the spot-on design, the great technology, the stellar amenities, or the unbelievable views? Today’s Saturday Six Hundred is an absolute real estate unicorn. This four-level, energy efficient, luxury townhome at 1910 Wickmere Mews offers all of those high-end finishes you’ve come to expect as well as a host of fantastic surprises. Spoiler: it shares amenities with the Belmont Hotel. Lounge by the pool or catch one of the outstanding live music shows all for a criminally low HOA fee of $81 per month. I know, right?

Sundrenched with views to die for, the 2,250-square-foot unit comprises two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. Listed by Alex Prins of Coldwell Banker, this gem is going for $649,000. Now, usually I find myself rather unmoved by 3D tours, but this one rates as an exception. Join us after the jump for it and lots, lots more.

 

First, you’ll have to take a peek at the 3D tour for a good idea of the exterior (I don’t have a good photo). It’s really eye-catching, and the mix of windows, in particular, I find very charming.

Second, when I say this townhome is smart, I mean it’s so intelligent nearly every electronic feature can be operated from your smartphone. Including the dumbwaiter. Yeah, there’s a dumbwaiter. And custom-colored mood lighting. And all of it is energy efficient and low voltage – the entire home could be run off a car battery, according to listing agent Alex Prins. Welcome to the future, friends.

Sharp, sharp, sharp! The design here is crisp and sophisticated. The first floor holds an office with walk-out patio – pretty minimal. But go up a floor and things get really eye-catching. Even the staircase is captivating.

The main living area is saturated with natural light and opens into the kitchen. Even from this level, the view is incomparable!

The finish-out in the chef-style kitchen boasts sleek cabinetry, stainless appliances (naturally), Carrara marble countertops, real hardwood floors, and that mood lighting I mentioned earlier. It’s coolly modern while still being wonderfully warm and inviting.

The bedrooms (more great light) and bathrooms (again, Carrara marble counters in there) are very nicely done.

And as you make your way up to the fourth level, you find a bonus loft space with the ultimate view.

Finally, y’all. This view. It’s everything. From this perch, you get all of downtown, Calatrava’s Margaret Hunt Hill and Margaret McDermott bridges, and skyline for  miles. It’s truly a million-dollar view in a much, much more reasonable price range.

If all that weren’t enough, the townhome is a short walk (or bike!) to Trinity Groves, downtown Dallas, shopping, and entertainment venues. Want more? Scoot on over for the open house this Saturday, October 28 from 2 to 4 p.m.

  • Thought for a fun “Black Friday” post; go to some of the poshest parts of the metroplex- Park Cities, Turtle Creek, Uptown, Preston Hollow, Southlake, etc – and show us the least-expensive house for sale in each.

  • Candace, you must know I stand among your most fervent fans/beneficiaries. Your photography (or that of the listings) are stunning while your command of the language is rarely surpassed. There is one expression you use occasionally that is incompatible with your usual eloquence: to die for. Is ANY view or property or anything on Earth, for that matter, worth dying to experience? Splitting hairs? Perhaps. I submit it is outdated, out of touch and detracts from your core thought. That observation probably worth what you paid to receive it… 🙂
