Clarke

Clarke Avenue and its perpendicular adjunct, Clover Lane, seem to be charmed places, which have never waned in popularity since they were developed in the 1920s. Prized by young professionals on the move in search of a good west side address, lifelong friendships are often formed with neighbors. Several of my friends and acquaintances made strong friendships on Clover and Clarke that have endured for decades. Some move on, often to grander digs, but many stay, content with the inherent charm of the street and the ideal location — sandwiched between Rivercrest, Monticello, and the Cultural District.

In some respects the area has been a victim of its own success, with prices seemingly rising ever upward and also tempting their affluent owners into unfortunately conceived renovations. So it is a happy surprise to encounter a thoughtfully updated listing at 3824 Clarke Avenue that is truly move-in ready.

With a delicious blend of textures and finishes, today’s Saturday Seven Hundred is the epitome of cool. And at a bit over $300 per square foot, it’s luxury cool. Situated within walking distance of the Arts District and Klyde Warren Park, the location of this amazing urban loft can’t be beat. Seriously, cool. But don’t take my word for it. The 22-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows speak for themselves. This two bedroom, two bathroom condo at 2011 Cedar Springs Road Apartment 102 is listed by Tod G. Franklin with Dfwcityhomes at $725,000.
