Efficient Space, Efficient Price, Get Living In Deep Ellum

Share News:

Trendy and in the $200s? Get right out of town. Or in town with this Deep Ellum loft.

It’s a condo that you can purchase for your little ol’ self. Not bad at all. It’s an efficiency, also known as the OG, original open concept.  Which means it’s one room and 804 square feet of pure living satisfaction.

Compass’ Clay Smiley is part of the husband-and-wife real estate team that listed the condo and they hired another husband-and-wife team – East Dallas Modern – to stage it.

Smiley said obviously, the main motivation for hiring stagers is to show potential buyers what’s possible. Especially in an efficiency. It’s not a huge space, but it’s extremely livable. Plus when you call in the pros, they have tips and tricks us mere mortals might not think of. In this particular space, it’s all about the angles. By placing the couch on a slant you’re able to carve out a comfy little TV nook. 

This is also the perfect place for a first-time property buyer. It offers the a-ha-ha-ha-it’s-mine-all-mine factor of actually owning real estate without the what?-I-have-to-do-the-landscaping-and-the-lawn-and-worry-about-the-foundation-and-all-of-it factors of owning a single-family home. 

There are a lot of perks to this property, actually. As Smiley points out there’s a real sense of community in the building. Not that you don’t get that in a neighborhood, but when you live under the literal same roof, there’s just a coziness you don’t get with property lines.

Not to mention the location is killer. Hop on Central with ease or better yet, don’t. Just walk to all the restaurants and bars or get yourself a scooter. You’ve earned it. There are way too many favorites to name so just trust us when we say there’s plenty to pick from. And Pecan Lodge.

Other features of this super cute, call-it-your-own home are concrete floors, wood-cased windows, and an updated bathroom as of last year.

Add in some open duct work and cedar beams and you have yourself a modern look all around. All that and a pool on-site? It’s officially time to give Smiley a call. 

Compass Real Estate’s Clay Smiley has listed 2502 Live Oak, #217, for $206,900.
