Buyers are craving more modern, livable homes, and our Inwood Home of the Week is a sleek, sexy Midway Hollow modern at 3815 Valley Ridge Road just listed by Clay Stapp.

Holz & Stein recently completed this beauty. I was not familiar with the company, so I did a bit of research on them. Suddenly it made perfect sense that I was enamored of this house. The CandysDirt.com team recently returned from Boot Ranch in Fredericksburg where I was taken with the style of the homes — deeply rooted in original German architecture.

Ritz-Carlton

The views are spectacular from the balcony of unit 1504 in tower II of the Ritz-Carlton.

I’ve found a real gem in Uptown, a 15th-story condo at The Tower Residences at Ritz-Carlton. It offers incredible views, a gorgeous contemporary interior, and access to the world-class, five-star hotel amenities and concierge services offered at the Ritz-Carlton.

Unit 1504 at 2555 N. Pearl St. is one of only two properties on the market for under a million dollars in either Ritz-Carlton tower, and the only one bedroom at this price point. That’s notable because the penthouse in this second tower just sold for one of the highest prices ever paid for a high-rise residential unit in Dallas. Additionally, the unit overlooks the landmark Crescent property and the upcoming Crescent Park, a $65- million renovation that will feature an expanded shopping and dining arcade across the street. This is the place to live!

I love how walkable this area is: a block to Klyde Warren Park and the Dallas Arts District; great restaurants
and entertainment on every corner; the American Airlines Center down the street. Because this condo is on the
15th floor, street noise isn’t an issue. Plus, the balcony is not west-facing, so it stays cooler in the unit than
those that face the blazing Texas sun in the afternoon.

This property is listed by Jennifer Cloud Esq with Private Label Realty, who worked closely with the owner to update the space. For example, the once-purple walls are now a nice, neutral tone and contemporary lighting
that takes it up a notch was added in the dining and master areas. It stays the perfect temperature with a Nest thermostat.

They hired Staged by Stapp to ready the unit for sale, and almost everything you see is available for purchase with the condo, which has one bedroom, one full bathroom, one half bath, and 1,375 square feet, with access to the awesome balcony from both the living room and master. I’d love to give you a tour.
