21 - Small

Washing machines are strictly verboten inside 3883 Turtle Creek, a condo building dubbed “21.”

 

You know by now that one of my personal must-haves is an in-home washer and dryer. This is one of the reasons the “21” high-rise at 3883 Turtle Creek (which has a ban on in-unit washing machines) didn’t last long on my list of potential homes for me. But perhaps that’s all changed?

Enter the Drumi and BiWa.

The W Residences Unit 2001 Living

Highrise living — and we’re talking living at the tippy-top, y’all — doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg and leave you with that vague sinking feeling. Would you believe me if I told you that you could live on the 20th floor in the W Residences at Victory Park for less than $400K? You can, y’all! And you can get all of the eyebrow wagging cachet and amenities that come with living inside The W.

This unit, which is on the 20th floor, has amazing views and a great open floor plan through the living, dining, and kitchen areas. Plus you get a great little balcony/terrace. Of course, you get access to all of the swank amenities at the W Hotel, including 24-hour valet, private pool, room service, access to the spa, and a location you can’t beat!

For this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred, we’re looking at a hip downtown loft, 1001 Belleview Street #401. This condo is located in the Beat Lofts, a 10-story, 75-unit building in the heart of the revitalized South Side neighborhood, also known as the Cedars.

This corner unit is a 2-1.5 and 1,336 square feet, listed for $299,999 by Natalie Newberry at Clay Stapp + Co. I love the marriage of urban and midcentury styles in this loft. Jump to read more!  (more…)

1999 McKinney 1006 View

A friend of mine has a nickname or code word for his house. He calls it the “sexy dojo.” I know, it’s silly, but I also know he’s not the only one who has a nickname for their home.

I do, too. My husband and I call our little domicile the “House of England,” which is both literal and fanciful, and makes our modest 1,300-square-foot home seem a lot more grand. But for our Lease of the Week, I’ve already nicknamed it for the lucky tenant: “A Love Affair Pied a Terre.”
