3225 Turtle Creek A

An address on Turtle Creek Boulevard has a certain cachet in Dallas, and often come at a hefty price tag, so an affordable listing always catches my eye.

In today’s Tuesday Two Hundred, we’re looking at a high-rise condo at 3225 Turtle Creek Boulevard in the Renaissance on Turtle Creek. Unit 620B is priced at $259,000 with 1,154 square feet. It is a 2-2, located on the sixth floor of the south building, which has 16 floors. It is listed by Sue Krider at Allie Beth Allman & Associates.

The Renaissance is located near the intersection of Cedar Springs Road and Turtle Creek, in close proximity to Downtown Dallas, Uptown, Oak Lawn, and the Park Cities. In addition to urban lifestyle options, the condo is also steps from Lee Park and one block from the Beasley entrance to the Katy Trail. The actual Turtle Creek has green spaces, parks, and walking paths, as well.

3725 Turtle Creek unitThe Bel-Air — wait, say it again, “Bel-AHHHHHir…” is one of the best places to call home on Turtle Creek, particularly if you want “condo” living but 360 degrees of separation betwixt you and your neighbor. This angelic unit at 3725 Turtle Creek, unit J, is a free-standing townhouse and the only one of it’s kind in that small complex of just 10 units. 3725 Turtle Creek J extAs if life just kept dropping perfection in our laps, it has an elegant staircase but also an elevator to move you around three stories. Me, I’d take the steps and give my arse the needed daily work-out, but for those infirm or of bad knees/hips/joints, there is an elevator installed. Plus the interiors are just knocked out to Fort Worth. You get hardwood floors, moldings galore, sound and media system,  an elegant curved staircase, two fireplaces, a real study with a plethora of bookcases, great storage, a butlers pantry, morning room, plantation shutters, vaulted and beamed ceilings, gorgeous decked out gourmet kitchen, first floor center courtyard, and walk-ability to the Katy Trail, West Village, Kalita Humphreys, even Uptown. If you want to stay home and enjoy the outdoors in private, there are three outdoor entertaining areas including the top floor balcony with majestic views.

This pup is a whopping 4432 square feet, larger than most homes. It has four bedrooms, four and a half baths, and three living areas plus a study. The Bel-Air was built in 2000, by the awesome Nixon-Breckenridge duo (which is now Alan Nixon), so the townhome is rather energy efficient and even has a Geothermal HVAC. Oh yes, this is a one-owner unit.

Your neighbors have homes ranging from 3302 square feet to 5157, with three to five bedrooms. So you are not buying the biggest baby on the block. The Bel-Air was built with great details and exterior touches of stone, wrought iron, heavy doors and welcoming gas lights. Since every unit was custom built, no two are cookie-cutter alike. This perfect unit is being marketed by the adorable Brad Kimple of the Ben Jones Group at Allie Beth Allman for $1,199,000.3725 Turtle Creek butlers 3725 Turtle Creek master 3725 Turtle Creek master bath1 3725 Turtle Creek master bath 2 3725 Turtle Creek study 3725 Turtle Creek balcony 3725 Turtle Creek stairs Katy Trail 3725 Turtle Creek porch
