Knox View Homes has been a phoenix rising for all the drivers on North Central Expressway and Knox Street to view – and its listing agent, Susan Griffin has been receiving calls ever since she hung her banner up on the side of the development. The exclusive, architect-designed community is generating a lot of buzz in the neighborhood, and for good reason – it consists of four single-family, modern residences that put indoor-outdoor living first, and are ideally located in the Knox District, one of the most coveted upscale neighborhoods in Dallas.
“Quite simply, it’s where everyone wants to live right now,” says exclusive listing agent, Susan Griffin of Bill Griffin Real Estate Brokerage. “These are innovative, modern townhomes for owners who want to live in the heart of Dallas’ most walkable community. You have very posh restaurants and retail mixed in with mom-and-pop shops and casual dining. You get the best of both worlds with close proximity to the downtown Dallas Arts District and the Katy Trail, that will eventually take you all the way to White Rock Lake.”
The developer, Black Wolf Equities, worked in conjunction with architects, Dan Finnell of EST.11 and Leonardo Sangri Gonzalez of ZS & HKS Architects, to bring you the Knox District’s most exclusive urban community. It is surrounded by the best restaurants and retail in Dallas, and is only a short walk to the active lifestyle of popular Katy Trail.
Two ingenious floor plans call for indoor-outdoor entertaining like you’ve never seen before, with first-floor, open-concept living, kitchen, and dining featuring dramatic vaulted ceilings, walls of floor-to-ceiling windows, and doors that open to a spacious yard off the dining room.
The second level offers soaring 10-foot-ceilings with a catwalk to three bedrooms, each with private en-suite baths.
All master bedrooms include private, oversized, covered balconies, giant walk-in closets that are customizable, and spa-like master baths with a sleek soaking tub, floating double-sink vanity, and massive walk-in shower.
Towering above it all is the third level, designed for the ultimate in entertaining with inviting media rooms that open to incredible 18-by-12-foot roof decks. Bonus – every home comes with powder baths conveniently located on the first and third floors.
As if that wasn’t enough, the homes are wired for remote control electric shades, security systems, and speaker wires throughout all of the gracious living areas – perfect for when you want to turn up the volume. And it’s the high-end designer finishes at Knox View that really bring the “wow” factor, from diamond-polished concrete floors on the first level to 3/4 hardwoods on the second level, and steel tread staircases!
Gorgeous custom cabinets, a Bertazzoni stainless steel appliance package with 36-inch gas range, matching vent-a-hood, refrigerator, dishwasher, sleek quartz counters, and stone tile in all kitchens and baths, plus German plumbing fixtures by Hansgrohe add to the drama and modern appeal of Knox View.
Additional features include a bio fuel fireplace, all foam insulation, Milgard double-pane low-E windows, and a superior foundation built with 52 shaft piers per slab. The exterior comes well-appointed and double wrapped in Tyvek with masonry king-size brick, commercial grade exterior CEM clad siding – which is used on Tesla Car dealerships and comes with a 50-year manufacturer warranty – plus metal and commercial TPO roofing.
Griffin says Knox View Homes are perfect for empty nesters, young professionals, couples with children, and investors who want an upscale executive rental or Airbnb. There’s also no HOA to contend with.
But is Knox View a great value? Griffin says, “The land value and property values in this area have doubled in just a few short years and will continue to go up in value as the upscale retail and residential development continues to grow.”
In fact, Knox District is one of the most walkable upscale neighborhoods in Dallas with a walk score of 89. Michael Dell of Dell Computers recently made a $250 Million investment in Knox District, which doesn’t hurt either, and will guarantee the area is a thriving destination.
“What really makes these townhomes stand out is the fact they were developed with abundant space and landscape, with no shared living walls, and windows on three sides. They provide the natural light and privacy all homeowners desire,” adds Griffin.
