I almost dropped my drink when I saw this sleek Urban Reserve modern for lease! I can’t remember if I’ve ever seen a property available to lease in this award-winning sustainable neighborhood of 50 unique architect-designed modern homes. So this is quite the score for anyone who cares about sustainability.
We know most of you looking to lease are new to Dallas, so here’s a bit of background courtesy of the Urban Reserve website.
Urban Reserve is a development unique to Dallas and all of the Southwest. Found on the principles of modern architecture and low-impact, energy-efficient living, Urban Reserve answers homeowners’ new demand for sustainably designed homes. The site consists of 13 acres in North Dallas and features rolling terrain, two ponds, and hundreds of trees. Fifty modernist homes and homesites make up the project, each featuring its own unique architectural expression.
Since its inception, Urban Reserve has been a magnet for some of the most notable local and national contemporary architects. Architects who have designed homes in the development include Max Levy, Vince Snyder, Dan Shipley, Russell Buchanan, Lionel Morrison, Kieran Timberlake Associates, and many others.
If you care about smart design, indoor air quality, water conservation energy performance, and a whole host of other sustainable features, Urban Reserve is the best neighborhood in Dallas. It was the eco-friendly vision of Diane Cheatham, and since its inception, has gone on to win numerous awards for both the architects and the neighborhood. Those neighborhood awards include one for innovative projects given by Eco-Structure Magazine in 2009, the 2007 CLIDE Award, and the 2007 Dallas AIA Excellence in Sustainable Design Award.
I think you are beginning to get the picture. This is a neighborhood built by, and home to, serious environmentalists. So, yes, it’s super exciting when you find a home is up for lease here.
This Urban Reserve modern beauty is a sleek, simple, and spectacular with 3,222-square-feet, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a powder bath. It has the popular open-floorplan with a 50- foot long glass wall that spans the living spaces. The kitchen is one you’re glad to have front and center to show off your chef skills with a Miele six-burner gas range, two Bosch dishwashers, and an 8-foot white Krion island.
Location is always critical when leasing a property, and Urban Reserve is beautifully situated in Lake Highlands, next to White Rock Trail, and about fifteen minutes from downtown Dallas.
“It’s rare to find a rental property in Urban Reserve,” Dave Perry-Miller listing agent Laura Michelle said. “It’s green-certified and lives like a single-story home.”
Michelle has this Urban Reserve modern at 30 Vanguard Way, listed for rent at only $6,000 per month, or if you fall in love and cannot bear to leave, you can purchase it for $1.195 million.
