At least once in a lifetime, everyone should have the chance to experience true urban living. The kind where you can walk out your front door and down to coffee shops, restaurants and entertainment, where rec opportunities like the Katy Trail and Turtle Creek are all around, and where you maybe, just maybe, could forego having a car – gasp! – because you’re close enough to public transit that you don’t need one. (A Vespa would sure be cool though.)
Dennis Hammett’s listing at 3230 Blackburn Drive in The Valencia presents a great opportunity to try this lifestyle on for size at $639,000. You can even have a preview this Sunday, February 16 from 1 to 3 p.m. Just don’t be surprised if you never want to leave (the lifestyle, not the open house).
Built in 2006, the interior, corner-unit townhome across from West Village features three bedrooms and 2½ baths covering 2,357 square feet (per tax). Every one of its three floors feels light-and-bright thanks to its high ceilings and abundance of windows.
From the large front porch overlooking the pool, step into the entryway. A guest room with full bath is on this level, and could serve admirably as a home gym or office. Access the two-car garage from this floor as well.
Head up to the main living area where your imagination can begin to do its thing. Envision yourself breezing end to end, whether to pass hors d’oeuvres among your fellow board members or to sneak a scoop of Talenti from the freezer in between episodes of your latest streaming obsession. Of course, on your way back to the couch, you may get distracted by something else in your exquisitely appointed chef’s kitchen. The massive granite island, walk-in pantry, mosaic backsplash and stainless-steel appliances combine to make it a space you could spend some serious time in. However, the siren song of the large covered balcony could is just as compelling.
Throughout this level, and the others as well, chic finishes, lighting and appliances lend a stylish yet comfortable vibe that will see you through every day and every occasion equally well. Fresh paint, flooring and art lighting all provide the perfect backdrop for showcasing your growing art collection.
Upstairs the over-sized master has treetop views from the private balcony plus a separate shower, jetted tub, double vanity and large walk-in closet. French doors on your bonus room let the light pour through.
This low-HOA, gated community with resort-style pool and vibrant location cannot be beat. To schedule a showing, contact Dennis Hammett at 214-641-9815.
