Splurge vs. Steal: Two Turtle Creek Condos | CandysDirt.com

Our splurge is apartment 5F at 3510 Turtle Creek Blvd. in the Claridge.

Splurge vs. Steal is a new feature on CandysDirt.com. Every week, we look at two properties that offer something in common, but are miles apart in their asking price.  

Turtle Creek Boulevard is one of the toniest addresses in Dallas and a fabulous location close to Oak Lawn, Uptown, and downtown. It also offers proximity to multiple parks, Katy Trail, and green spaces along Turtle Creek itself. What’s not to love?

Over the years, developers have built quite a few highrise condo buildings along the boulevard. Our Splurge vs. Steal this week takes a look at two Turtle Creek condos that are only about a block and a half apart, but about $850K apart in list prices.

If you’ve already fallen in love with Peaks Suburban Addition after learning more about this historic, close-in neighborhood from writer Cherry Kelln, then you’re about to get a case of the vapors. Find your fainting couch, because this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is a stunning 1905 Victorian in this sought-after neighborhood. 
 
“It’s one of the only, if not the only brick Victorian home in Dallas,” says listing agent Teresa Costa. As you’d expect, this home has stunning curb appeal, looking as if it was pulled from the turn of the century thanks to this neighborhood’s historic designation. And while there are a few Victorians in Peak’s Addition, this one truly stands out, easily earning it the title of High Caliber Home of the Week. 
 
Of course, while 4503 Junius St. looks like the setting from a period drama from the curb, it has benefitted from some truly marvelous updates inside.
