Great rentals are hard to come by, and this Rental of the Week is one to keep an eye on.
The home at 16838 Village Lane in Dallas’ popular Bent Tree Village has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a nice $3,500 monthly price tag.
The two-story, 3,285-square-foot traditional home offers a one-year, renewable lease. There’s just one restriction: no pets.
Built in 1978, it’s an older model but features numerous updates, a circular drive, wet bar, and spacious entertaining rooms.
Updates include scraped hardwoods, plantation shutters, and granite, travertine, and marble finishes.
“Upstairs, a spacious 380-square-foot den is highlighted by a tray ceiling and built-in bookcases,” said Realtor Kim Jones Calloway.
Did someone say built-in bookcases? Sold.
Location, location, location
Bent Tree Village is one of Dallas’ premier neighborhoods, close to the Dallas North Tollway. It’s not unusual for homes in the area to go for a cool $4 million, so finding an affordable rental is something to be proud of.
The new tenants will be less than two miles from fun eateries like Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill, Ida Claire, Whistle Britches, and Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar. Water Tower Theater, Regeneration Arcade, and Richardson’s Cottonwood Arts Festival also are nearby.
Introverts need not fear; the home has plenty of good spaces for entertainment. An elegant dining room, stainless steel appliances, and a breakfast bar make the perfect spot for overnight visitors. Four private parking spaces are available with access to the fenced patio. The breakfast area opens up to the outdoors, where guests can enjoy the property’s lush landscaping.
Friends will no doubt be jealous of the master bedroom with walk-in closets, his and hers sinks, and a jetted tub.
Live and learn
If the plan is to make this a family residence rather than a party pad, that works too. The Bent Tree Village is zoned for Dallas ISD schools, including Jerry R. Junkins Elementary School, Ewell D. Walker Middle School, and W.T. White High School.
Junkins fared well in the Texas Education Association ratings, meeting all standards and earning two distinctions. Walker Middle met state standards with one distinction, as did W.T. White High School.
