It’s so easy to imagine a lifestyle in this brand new townhouse in the exciting Waterside Addition. The Waterside development, which was carved out of 63 acres formerly owned by Lockheed, has been a thumping success since its launch in 2014. It’s no wonder, considering its choice riverside location with mixed-use retail and residential space, as well as abundant public green spaces. Residents can enjoy the trails along the river for walking, running, or cycling. There is easy access to retail anchored by Whole Foods and restaurants including Piatello, Taco Diner, and Tricky Fish.
And then there’s the low-maintenance convenience of a near-zero-lot-line townhouse. Built in 2019, the 2,800-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath residence is a bright, fresh blend of traditional and modern. The ground floor is a loft-like space drenched in light streaming through energy-efficient, double pane, Low-E windows. The open concept area is bound by mocha-colored hardwood floors.
Though open to the kitchen and dining areas, the living area has an intimate cozy feeling anchored to a gas log fireplace. Glass doors on two sides are perfectly proportioned to the walls and ceiling height. And the living area has a modish ceiling fan you don’t have to hate.
As would be expected in a brand new townhouse, the appliances are high-end energy star including a 36″ gas cooktop and built-in microwave oven. Surfaces are quartz. Small thing, but there is a handy outlet — not always a given — on the island. And not small thing — there’s a view of the Trinity River.
All three bedrooms are on the second floor. At 350-square-feet, the master bedroom is nearly as spacious as the living area. It has an en suite bath with quartz countertops and twin sinks. The hardware and sconces are clean and stylish. There is a bonus office cubicle on the second floor. Then there are the unseen benefits of a new build. Like a 16 seer AC unit, low energy water heater and radiant barrier to keep electric bills low.
There is a two-car garage at back. An annual HOA of $1,500 covers common area maintenance, site management, and access to property facilities. Though in a new development, Waterside is inside the loop and is located near major arteries like 183, I-20, and Bryant Irvin and represents the ever-westward upscale development of the city, which is making many many ask if ’09 is the new ’07 zip code.
