live oak condo

The loft life looks appealing in our Tuesday Two Hundred, a Live Oak condo in downtown Dallas that exemplifies an urban, walkable lifestyle with industrial style and an open floorplan. 

The condo at 2502 Live Oak St. Apt 221 is located on the quiet side of the building near North Good Latimer Expressway and Interstate 75. It’s walking distance to Deep Ellum, a light rail station, the central business district, Dallas Arts District, and Dallas Farmers Market. It’s perfectly located for the downtown worker. 

This condo has one bedroom, one bathroom, and 804 square feet, built in 1998. It comes with an assigned garage parking space, too.

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…)

3110 Thomas 119 Living

Walkable. Urban. Accessible. Mass Transit.

Did I miss any buzzwords that might have tipped you off that today’s Thursday Three Hundred is right in the middle of a very shoe-leather-friendly area?

When I think “walkable” and “Dallas,” I automatically think of the State Thomas area. It’s a fantastic neighborhood just south of Uptown that is super close to the Arts District and on the cusp of everything you want in an inner city setting. Wide sidewalks, patios, mass transit, shopping and dining — State Thomas is perfect.

Of course, this neighborhood has a reputation for being stuffed to the gills with historic buildings, but let me tell you, there are some fantastic modern properties to be seen, and this loft is one of them.

1111 S Akard Exterior

A colleague of mine used to live in this building before having kids and really, I envied her and her husband. The truth of the matter is that with less room, you’re less likely to accumulate a bunch of random detritus because where the heck are you going to put it? Right?

Everything in this 814-square-foot loft condo is in full view, which is a blessing and a curse. It forces you to pare down, be more organized, and put things away. On the other hand, if you’re having a severe bout of the lazies, it shows quickly. A popcorn bowl full of old maids and an empty soda bottle on the living room table can quickly become an all-out-assault on the rest of the apartment, leading to clothes on the floor, shoes left everywhere, and pots on stovetops. Basically, utter chaos.

So maybe you want to pare down, too? Then Unit 211 at Buzz Lofts in the very hip Cedars neighborhood is just the thing. Marketed by the inimitable Becky Frey, this unit is 100 percent modern with touches of style and convenience everywhere. I love the sliding closet door that keeps the profile low, the understated bathroom, the polished concrete floors, the open galley kitchen, and that incredible retracting garage door-type window that opens the entire unit to the balcony and views of Reunion tower and downtown.

This building is constructed with Earth-friendly materials and rainwater harvesting for the landscape. This could be the perfect place for a cyclist to live, too, considering the ample security. Residents get covered parking, and you’re just steps from the Cedars DART station — a great launching point to downtown Dallas and beyond. And with these fabulous views and tremendous location, you might be thinking that this unit is going to cost you a pretty penny. Surprise! It’s on the market for only $130,500!
