The choice to move to Oak Lawn is one often based on location. People who enjoy this neighborhood with Turtle Creek, hoards of excellent dining and shopping options, and plenty of nightlife, aren’t planning to spend oodles of time inside their digs. Life in Oak Lawn is to be lived in the neighborhood itself, right?
That’s why we find this adorable Bud Oglesby-designed, Midcentury Modern condo listed by Keller Williams Urban agent Don Neilson so appealing. As our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans, we see the inherent value in such a superb location — Mansion Park. Plus, its modest floor plan is so incredibly functional that you won’t miss all the excess space you left behind.
“This is the ultimate ‘tiny home’ on steroids,” Neilson said of his listing at 2727 Hood Street, Unit No. 110. “Today’s sophisticated urban buyers want convenience, style, and simplicity. They want to live in a nice neighborhood and they want a home that is affordable, so they spend their free time on living a more fulfilling lifestyle.”
We couldn’t agree more!
What you’ll notice from the very start in this petite one-bedroom, one-bath, two-story condo in Oak Lawn is that you get a lot of bang for your buck. The first floor of this beautifully maintained Mansion Park condo sports fab Terrazzo and an updated kitchen that vibes with the Midcentury Modern appeal of the 1964-built condo building. The area is totally accessible by foot or by bike to all of the things we love about Oak Lawn and Mansion Park, and is secure, too.
“Buyers love lock-and-leave properties that afford them the luxury of being able to travel and not have to worry about maintenance while they are away,” Neilson added. “They want to be near outdoor space and walkability is crucial.”
What’s also great about this unit is how large the 622-square-foot condo lives. You get a great master suite upstairs as well as a built-in office in the landing, as well as a laundry closet. Covered parking is also included, as well as low HOA dues of $220 per month.
The home has a perfect balance of light, Neilson said, which works great with the bright neutral color scheme of the interiors to make it feel much larger than its modest floor plan. For the urbanite, this is a great starter home, and considering the fantastic location, a great investment, too.
Don Neilson with Keller Williams Urban has listed 2727 Hood St. No. 110 for $229,000. See it this weekend, May 18 and 19 from 2 to 4 p.m., during the open house.
