Lake Cliff Tower Outside

Lake Cliff Tower is a high-rise condo building that rarely has units up for rent. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance loft lifestyle close to everything that’s happening in Oak Cliff, well, this one is just perfect.

Lake Cliff Tower Kitchen

Represented by Jason Lucas and our friends at LocalDwelling.com, this one-bedroom, one-bath condo is up for rent for $1,100 a month. There’s a stackable washer and dryer in-unit, as well as plenty of storage. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and granite counters, which go well with the open ceilings and concrete floors. There’s plenty of room to hang your bicycle in between jaunts around North Oak Cliff, too.

Lake Cliff Tower Living

This second-floor condo totals just over 1,000 square feet and has plenty of room for both dining and living space. With some creative use of furniture, you could do a lot with this unit. I also love that the current resident has eschewed window dressings. Considering that Lake Cliff Tower is the tallest building around, you don’t really need them.

Lake Cliff Tower Dining

Amenities include assigned parking, a pool, an outdoor patio, and a wine cellar. Unit 202 will be available next week, and if you’re looking for a cozy loft that’s perfect for a single move and shaker who wants to be in the thick of things, this condo is it!
