Seriously, who needs the hassle of travel planning and jet lag? (more…)

6787 Lakefair CircleIf only there were a house that suited both traditional taste and a more modern aesthetic …

Guess what? We’ve found it— a stunning Lakewood transitional.

Emily Ray-Porter with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate has just listed 6787 Lakefair Circle for $1.199 million, and it’s sure to please anyone looking for the best of both style worlds in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Dallas.

Lakewood is one of Dallas’ oldest neighborhoods, known for its great public and private schools and incredible sense of community. It’s minutes from White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum. Great location and a great family home? Score! (more…)

downtown loft

If stellar downtown views are on your “must-have” list, then today’s Tuesday Two Hundred will exceed your expectations.

With south-facing, eight-foot windows and a rooftop pool deck, the Soco Urban Loft Condo at 1122 Jackson St. No. 904 offers splendid skyline views of downtown Dallas.

But the appeal of this condo isn’t confined to views. Think polished concrete floors, cool-burning LED lighting, a huge custom walk-in California closet with desk and safe, and lots of authentic details that remind you of the building’s 1925 construction (the building was once a railroad terminal and warehouse, completely reimagined as hip condos 11 years ago).

Unit 904 is technically a 1-1, but because it’s a loft, the 1,272 square feet flow together and feel open. It was listed June 3 by Jennifer Shindler at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $224,000, the largest and most expensive of the four units in this building currently for sale. Its price-per-square-foot is $176, which is on the low end compared to the other three, listed at $174, $184, and $209 per square foot. With such a great look and solid price, we think unit 904 won’t be on the market long.

Azure condos

Have you ever wished you could peek inside a luxury high rise and compare condos? What’s different? What’s the same? Why are they sometimes priced thousands of dollars apart?

Today, we’re doing just that in our Thursday Three Hundred.

The Azure is a 31-story building in a tony Uptown location, 2900 McKinnon St., with panoramic views of downtown, Uptown, and Victory Park. Built in 2005, the Azure is shiny and new, and very much in demand.

Azure condos

I’ve chosen two similar units in the Azure that are currently on the market, units 607 and 803, that are $35,000 apart in price. Both are one bedroom, 1.5 bath with terraces. Both have access to the amenities at the Azure, like:

  • A visually arresting two-story glass lobby with a water feature and large sculpture (pictured at the top of the post)
  • 24-hour security, concierge, and valet
  • Junior Olympic-sized infinity pool with hot tub, landscaping, wood deck, lounge chairs, pergolas and grill area, located on the roof of the parking garage
  • Theater/media room
  • Resident community center
  • Fitness center

Unit 607 is 881 square feet, listed by Jarrad Barnes and Joseph Gullotto at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $395,000, or $448 a square foot. This unit has mandatory monthly HOA fees of $577 a month (based on square footage), which include a private parking garage, a feature unique to the Azure.

Unit 803 is 952 square feet, listed by Emily Ray-Porter and Henry Barber at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $360,000 (reduced from $375,000), or $378 a square foot. This unit has HOA fees of $643 a month, which also include a private one-car garage.

Let’s check out both Azure condos and see what they offer!
