If you want to buy a home in the Turtle Creek area, you have a few options. You can choose a high-rise unit, a low-rise unit, or the typical alternative — the three- to four-story townhome. While we like the privacy of townhome options in the Turtle Creek corridor, we have to say that our knees say “nope!”
Luckily, our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is the perfect compromise. This fresh listing form Missy Woehr of Compass Dallas gives us another alternative in the striking modern at 3275 Gilbert Ave.
“It’s an incredibly rare two-story home, versus the typical vertical townhome that may eliminate many buyers with third- and fourth-floor stairs,” Woehr said.
Plus, the lot gives you plenty of room for a generous outdoor entertaining area that will be popular at your many parties.
What we especially adore in this two-story townhome in the heart of Turtle Creek is the warmth it has. It’s modern, of course, and it does have some very precise lines and angles, but it still offers color and interest.
“The color palette and finish selections are sleek and sophisticated, but not severe contemporary,” Woehr said. “It lends itself to modern or traditional furnishings.”
That immense wall of windows makes the living room and kitchen absolutely glow like a crystal jewel box. You’ll rarely need to flip on a switch.
“I think the floor-to-ceiling windows are incredibly light and bright with green views from every window,” Woehr said.
Built in 2013, this three-bedroom, three-and-one-half-bath home has plenty of space to spread your treasures throughout its 3,225 square feet, and plenty of storage to put away seasonal decor. There’s room for a home office on the first floor with views of the courtyard, too. Plus, the upstairs landing is the perfect spot for your yoga mat, or in this case, exercise equipment. The architecture of the home and its layout maximizes natural light on both floors, which is an added bonus.
The master suite, which is on the second floor with its own private balcony, is gorgeous. More floor-to-ceiling windows and a generous size make it a serene retreat from whatever hubbub may be going on downstairs. The master bath is a looker, with a shower, vessel tub, and immense corner vanity that can fit all of your skincare products. We promise.
But we have to say that the outdoor space is what we really find alluring. Woehr agrees.
“The two private outdoor yard areas make this home unique to the neighborhood,” she said. “It’s a great floor plan for those who want outdoor space for pets or entertaining, and it has no HOA.”
