(Full disclosure: I’m a Williams Trew Real Estate agent representing this development, but I’d be just as excited about it regardless.)

Allow me to introduce you to Fort Worth’s newest (and only) single-family, new urban construction, under-$400,000-priced homes located less than seven minutes from downtown Fort Worth.

Where else can you find such an offering?  You won’t find this offered in San Antonio.  You can’t find that product in Houston.  And this housing certainly doesn’t exist in Big D. Yes, literally 2.4 miles from these new homes is Sundance Square, Bass Hall, and world-class shops and restaurants.

Meet The Bluffs at River East.

The W Residences Unit 2001 Living

Highrise living — and we’re talking living at the tippy-top, y’all — doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg and leave you with that vague sinking feeling. Would you believe me if I told you that you could live on the 20th floor in the W Residences at Victory Park for less than $400K? You can, y’all! And you can get all of the eyebrow wagging cachet and amenities that come with living inside The W.

This unit, which is on the 20th floor, has amazing views and a great open floor plan through the living, dining, and kitchen areas. Plus you get a great little balcony/terrace. Of course, you get access to all of the swank amenities at the W Hotel, including 24-hour valet, private pool, room service, access to the spa, and a location you can’t beat!

15737 Seabolt A

Addison is one of my favorite suburbs in DFW, with special events and festivals scheduled 29 weekends of the year, more than 170 restaurants, and 118 acres of parks. There’s always something fun to do there, from happy hours and festivals to Shakespeare in the Park and WaterTower Theatre. It’s also only 14 miles from Downtown Dallas on the Dallas North Tollway, so getting anywhere in between is a cinch.

The city of Addison is small, with only 4.35 square miles of land and 15,830 residents, but they’ve got plenty of inspiring residential real estate. This is particularly true around the Addison Circle area, a modern, urban neighborhood with brick-paved, tree-lined streets, public art, and some stellar townhomes, apartments, and condos.

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred takes us there to an Addison townhome at 15737 Seabolt Pl. Unit 30 is a two bedroom, 2.5 bath listed by Pamela Lewis at Ebby Halliday for $269,000 (just reduced $5,000). It has 1,922 square feet on three stories on an interior lot with impressive appointments and details; this townhome is newly listed and move-in ready. Jump to read all about it!

For this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred, we’re looking at a hip downtown loft, 1001 Belleview Street #401. This condo is located in the Beat Lofts, a 10-story, 75-unit building in the heart of the revitalized South Side neighborhood, also known as the Cedars.

This corner unit is a 2-1.5 and 1,336 square feet, listed for $299,999 by Natalie Newberry at Clay Stapp + Co. I love the marriage of urban and midcentury styles in this loft. Jump to read more!  (more…)

No, not that Penthouse! Get your mind out of the gutter! 😉

Seriously, though, this one-bedroom, one-bath penthouse at the Renaissance feels huge with a tiny price tag. Unit No. 1615PH, marketed by Sue Krider of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, is a dream!

There are tons of updates, including a great eat-in kitchen where you won’t mind doing dishes. Why, you ask? Because you get a great view of downtown! And it’s C-H-E-A-P at just $212,000.

Other things to love: This penthouse is two stories, so if you’re entertaining, no need to clean up the bedroom because it’s on another level! This Turtle Creek condo comes with two covered parking spaces, which is pretty awesome in itself. The closet is pretty spacious with an excellent organizer inside.

There’s also a tiled balcony with a view of Turtle Creek. It’s plenty roomy for a bistro set to nibble on breakfast while you sip your coffee.

Now, I’m no expert on HOA fees, so I sometimes get tripped up by them. So tell me: Is $413 monthly too much for this property? Can lofty HOA fees put you off a home you love?
