It’s not often you see a single-story residential property with an MU-3 zoning classification (Multi-Use). But then again, 2292 Vantage is just west of the Anatole and a smidge further along I-35E in the Design-ish District. It’s at the end of a small street next to the un-glamourous tail of Turtle Creek and the Trinity Strand Bike Trail (nifty).

Like most semi-industrial property, there’s a lot of space, but unlike a lot of places in warehouse areas, not a gigantic amount. It’s a more practical 2,500 square feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms listed for $699,995 with Paige Whiteside from Coldwell Banker Residential (also the property’s owner). Sure, you can work here, setup an office or showroom, but as you’ll see, whyyyyyyyy?

Very private, very quiet, very park-like. I remember a time when I’d have pulled out my checkbook for a home like this. I remember touring old fire stations to renovate in Chicago (as all gay boys do) and I even had my eye on a three-quarter acre parcel in the Design District – 25 years before I moved here!

What makes this property great is the mix. It’s industrial, but it’s very residential with a pool, grassy backyard, and borders Turtle Creek. It’s for someone who wants to be near everything but with ghost town emptiness in the evenings and weekends.
