East Village is a loosely defined geographical area on the opposite side of Central Expressway as West Village. It is fast developing and full of surprises.
Today’s Splurge vs Steal takes us to East Village and two brand new condos that are move-in ready with sleek design and contemporary elements. Which one is your favorite?
SPLURGE: DETACHED CORNER LOT MODERN HOME WITH LUXE TOUCHES
In a pocket of East Village primed to explode with new homes, unit 4 at 1504 Burlew St., is just completed with high-end finish-out and sleek design. The surrounding apartments have been purchased for demolition, so big changes are coming to this location, near Ross Avenue and North Peak Street and minutes from Baylor Hospital, downtown Dallas, the Arts District, Uptown, Henderson Avenue, Lower Greenville, Lakewood, and Swiss Avenue. This home has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, and 1,935 square feet on two stories.
Drive up to a two-car garage and private entrance with drought-tolerant landscaping in the front and side yards and an 8-foot privacy fence. Inside, find 10-foot ceilings with museum-finish walls, white oak hardwood floors, solid core doors, and a bright, open floorplan. The kitchen features custom flat-front white cabinetry, white quartz countertops, an island, white tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, including a convection oven. Behind-the-scenes features include a tankless water heater, 2-by-6 exterior walls for greater insulation, energy-rated foamed ceiling insulation, and a custom 16-SEER HVAC system. Hardwoods extend to the bedrooms and the master bath is exceptional with a drop-down shower, floating cabinetry, floor-to-ceiling tile, skylight, quartz countertops, and custom mirror design.
This home was listed April 30 by Colin Lardner with Lardner Group Real Estate for $619,000, reduced to $595,000. Mandatory monthly HOA dues are $250 and include blanket insurance, reserves, sprinkler system, water/sewer, and maintenance of front yard, exterior, and common areas.
