There’s this sweet spot in Dallas, if you’re looking for a good commute, access to shopping, dining, and good schools — and it’s bordered by Preston, Montfort, LBJ, and Keller Springs Road. It’s also a great place to find a condo or townhome for a terrific price point.
Within these boundaries, you are near the shopping and dining along Belt Line, the Hillcrest High School feeder pattern, and easy access to LBJ and the tollway.
And our Weekend One Hundred is right smack in the middle of all that. Located at 5565 Preston Oaks Road, this two bedroom, two bath condo at Unit 134 is 1,288 square feet of living space that will feel more like a house than an apartment, thanks to a clever layout and tall ceilings in the common areas.
The open layout means the kitchen is an easy conversation away from the living area, and while it may be smaller in size, it still feels big thanks to a living area benefitting from vaulted ceilings and a skylight. A second living area can be found upstairs, too.
Two generously sized bedrooms each have en-suite bathrooms, and one has been updated with granite countertops.
And did we mention outside? Unlike some condos where all the outdoor space is shared, this listing has its own private backyard patio, perfect for those morning cups of coffee, or that cool drink in the evening.
But that doesn’t mean the amenities are lacking in this community — there is a pool and a tennis court.
The home is listed for $190,000 by Michael Anderson with Allie Beth Allman and Associates. To see more photos, click here.
