The Uptown townhome at 4110 McKinney Ave. No. 4 feels fresh and polished. It is listed by David Maez at Vivo Realty for $369,900, with voluntary HOA fees of only $200 per quarter.

The floorplan is open and includes two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one powder room, and a two-car garage.

As Amanda Popken noted in one of her most recent columns here on CandysDirt.com, “67 percent of residents in Dallas-Fort Worth want to live in a walkable community at some point in their lives” and yet only 4 percent and 1.5 percent of the entire region can be classified as walkable. That’s why there’s such great demand for properties in Uptown, Deep Ellum, and urban neighborhoods where you can easily traipse from your front door to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife.

That’s one of the things this gorgeous townhome on State Street has going for it, but there’s much more to this beautiful home than its accessiblity. It’s truly a high-caliber home in an excellent location. As soon as you see it, you’re sure to fall in love, so don’t take any chances with financing. Call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today so you can put your highest and best offer in on this beautiful, walkable, enviable home.

3380 blackburn living

I have long wanted to start a series on the private homes of Dallas real estate agents. Let’s consider this the first post! This is the private home of Briggs Freeman’s Missy Woehr, a dear friend. When she’s not selling sleek condos at Museum Tower, this is where Missy lives with her husband, Gus, also a licensed agent. I think Missy has probably sold every unit at the Cascada.

This is an elegant three bedroom, three and two half bath townhouse built in 2003. With 4166 square feet, this 3-story home is spacious, secure and has a study that could be a fourth bedroom in case you have a houseful.  The floor plan is one of the best I’ve seen, and there is an elevator BUT! There is also a guest room on the first floor. I remember Missy telling me about this last January when my mother-in-law was visiting, my husband was recuperating from a knee replacement, and I needed a first floor guest room. 3380 Blackburn is a home that has been upgraded and planned to the T with top grade materials, comfort and ease of living in mind.

Travist Townhome Front

What do Millennials want when they’re looking to rent? First, let’s talk about Millennials as a cultural group: It’s mostly comprised of those born between the late 70s and early 90s, who came of age during the Y2K era. Categorized as media-obsessed narcissists, this group is preceded by Generations X and Y.

The thing Millennials value the most is access, so of course an urban address is going to be more appealing. That’s why I think this three-story townhome near the Katy Trail is going to be a boon for a Millennial. This 1,230-square-foot townhome at 4051 Travis Street Unit D is offered up by Jason Lucas of LocalDwelling.com for $1,900 a month.

Millennials are also looking for a more environmentally friendly way to live, so being inside Uptown — a walkable, bikable neighborhood — and being close to Dallas’ most-used pedestrian artery — The Katy Trail — will definitely catch a Millennial’s eye. And even with a small footprint you get all the trappings, which includes two bedrooms, two and a half baths, a two-car garage, and city views.

Millennials will also love the updated kitchen with island and stainless steel appliances, as well as the fireplace, designer lighting, and gorgeous wood floors. Know a Millennial this would be perfect for? Contact LocalDwelling.com today!
