Central Dallas Home

Kitchens and bathrooms sell houses, the old saying goes. If that’s the case, then the post-war beauty at 5824 Palm Ln. won’t be on the market long, so take a look while it’s still available.

This 2-2 is renovated from the top to bottom of its 1,479 square feet. The reno includes newly refinished and stained hardwoods, crown molding, surround sound capability, Wink home automation, a luxury master bathroom, and a kitchen that wows with its look and amenities.

The North Stonewall Terrace neighborhood in central Dallas is a prime location, near Mockingbird and Matilda, just three blocks from Central Expressway, three miles from White Rock Lake, and 3.5 miles from NorthPark Center.

It’s also zoned for Stonewall Jackson Elementary School, rated “10” by GreatSchools.org.

Our Thursday Three Hundred was listed June 5 by Damon Williamson at Keller Williams Park Cities for $399,900, and we bet this Central Dallas home will find a buyer soon.

downtown loft

If stellar downtown views are on your “must-have” list, then today’s Tuesday Two Hundred will exceed your expectations.

With south-facing, eight-foot windows and a rooftop pool deck, the Soco Urban Loft Condo at 1122 Jackson St. No. 904 offers splendid skyline views of downtown Dallas.

But the appeal of this condo isn’t confined to views. Think polished concrete floors, cool-burning LED lighting, a huge custom walk-in California closet with desk and safe, and lots of authentic details that remind you of the building’s 1925 construction (the building was once a railroad terminal and warehouse, completely reimagined as hip condos 11 years ago).

Unit 904 is technically a 1-1, but because it’s a loft, the 1,272 square feet flow together and feel open. It was listed June 3 by Jennifer Shindler at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $224,000, the largest and most expensive of the four units in this building currently for sale. Its price-per-square-foot is $176, which is on the low end compared to the other three, listed at $174, $184, and $209 per square foot. With such a great look and solid price, we think unit 904 won’t be on the market long.

Oak Lawn Townhome

If real estate is all about location, location, location, then the new Oak Lawn townhomes being built at 4607 Steel St. are a shining example of what’s on the market in a prime neighborhood for under $400K.

With contemporary stylings, open-concept floorplans with high ceilings, and views of downtown Dallas from the fourth-floor rooftop decks, it’s no wonder the first ten of the Hawthorne Street Townhouses sold before construction was complete.

To meet demand, developer Urban Innovations is building seven more, and two of those have pre-sold, says construction manager David Espedal.

Oak Lawn Townhome

Located near Maple and Hawthorne avenues, these townhomes are so new, they aren’t even in Google yet. If you want to find them, look up “2515 Hawthorne Ave., Dallas, TX 75219.”

This gated community will have 17 townhomes at build-out, each of them three bedroom/3.5 bathrooms on three stories with 2,119 square feet. A fourth-floor deck, second-story balcony, and first-floor private yard provide additional space for outdoor living.

Today’s Thursday Three Hundred townhomes are listed by Stephen Hemphill with Urban Lofts Townhomes for $399,900.

North Dallas Ranch

Today’s Thursday Three Hundred is a whole lot of house for $399,000.

The 1967 ranch at 7823 Roundrock Dr. has 2,789 square feet, five bedrooms, and three full baths with multiple updates throughout, including new paint and carpet in 2015. The backyard has a pleasant covered patio with high ceilings, a fan, and flagstone floor. The saltwater pool and landscaping add to the appeal.

This drive-up darling is well-maintained on a corner lot, with cream-colored brick and black shudders, an original ironwork pillar on the front porch, an open front lawn with mature trees, and the entire property has an in-ground sprinkler system.

It is newly listed by Jackie Asbury at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Texas Realty.

This is the exact kind of home that gives Dallas real estate its great reputation for beautiful, new homes that are so affordable you can snap them right up like shoes, almost. And by the way, since this is new construction by master builder Jeff Dworkin JLD Custom Homes—one of my faves. Naturally, you won’t hear about this sale in Case-Shiller (I hear five peeps are circling this puppy). Talk about urban PC, this home has a walkability score off the charts: five minute walk from Greenville Ave shops and restaurants and a ten minute drive from downtown Dallas. You get four bedrooms, three baths, great architectural layout and a master suite that runs the whole length of the home, which includes a walk-in closet the size of a bedroom! Oh, and on top of that: granite counters, hand-scraped hardwoods, stainless steel appliances, tankless water heater, huge backyard and a 125 year-old tree in the front yard. $479,900. 5932 Richmond.

I am seriously impressed!

This is one of those rare, one-of-a-kind homes that has been published  and will probably be under contract by the time you read this post. Built in 2007, the creative art-director owners snapped up this newly constructed, loaded, two-bedroom, 1608 square foot two story townhome and immediately set to customizing and re-designing it from the stained concrete floor up.  So immaculate, it looks brand-new in every corner. Huge, open living/dining room opens to a stainless kitchen with granite counters and customized tile backsplash. There’s a cute guest room and bath down, and a great filtered-light back patio with HUGE concrete table. Rear two car garage! Upstairs is the master, huge old-fashioned bath and walk-in closet with a spacious, wired balcony and the MOST GORGEOUS VIEWS of downtown Dallas EVER. The neighborhood: The Cedars, one of the city’s newest, most hip environs, is loaded with artists and other creative types, just like the owners of 1813 Ervay, listed with Subhi Gharbieh at Clay Stapp.
If cookie cutter home and ‘hood is NOT your cup of tea, run, do not walk, over to this home because at this price, it will not be on the shelf for long! Oh, did I tell you how much? $224,900. Yup, and only $20 a month in HOA.
