Modern Convenience, Stylish Finishes Make This East Village Townhome Stand Out

As more and more of Dallas’ urban core transforms from single-family homes to more dense, modern development, neighborhoods are seeing quite the renaissance, with more and more young professionals and city-dwelling families finding the perfect combination of location, amenities, and community. The area we call East Village — the residential neighborhood just east of City Place, near North Central Expressway — typifies this trend. 

This week’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is the perfect example of a centrally located, well-designed, and superbly accessible townhome in East Village. It’s a listing from Compass agent Phillip Murrell that will show you that you can have it all, perfectly wrapped up in beautiful modern design.

“Buyers will love that this home is newer construction, but isn’t the same cookie-cutter, three-story townhome,” Murrell said of 2321 Rusk Court. “At two stories, this home has a true modern design that capitalizes on its lengthy floor plan to afford the homeowner an incredible amount of natural light.”

Indeed, this two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,650-square-foot home inside the Dwellings at Rusk Court is one stellar example of urban infill engineered to accommodate modern life. The two-story floor plan doesn’t feel exceedingly tall. It does, however, feel very livable — a difficult thing to achieve with modern design.

“The finishes are all streamlined, clean, and modern,” Murrell said.

The home offers floor-to-ceiling windows on its main floor, warm hardwood floors, and a shockingly large outdoor space that will be a boon for pet owners.

 “I love the first-floor bedroom with access to large backyard,” Murrell said. “This isn’t your typical townhome backyard — there is enough room for pets to actually roam!”

“I think this level of design at this price point is almost impossible to find,” Murrell added. “There is a lot of new construction in Uptown East, but these units are built to maximize square footage. Rusk Court has a deliberate design and stands out from the rest as a soulful modern home.”

Additionally, Murrell pointed out that the Dwellings at Rusk Court are fee simple, so there are no HOA dues. 

Compass agent Phillip Murrell has listed 2321 Rusk Court for $430,000, which comes out to $261 per square foot.
