Warning, you are about to fall in love. This is a 1720 square foot, two bedroom, two bath condo with hardwood floors, walk-in closet, full size washer and dryer with a private balcony overlooking a huge tree and swimming pool. Location? Snuggled between University Park and Preston Hollow, The Rachofsky House where Howard and Cindy are moving is a stone’s throw up the street. Ebby Halliday herself is a neighbor. You have prime location and oh by the way, the HOAs cover all the utilities save for cable. And you are so close to everything you will never, ever live anywhere else in Dallas.
Full disclosure: this is my daughter and son-in-law’s condo. Even more disclosure: I own another unit in this building, as my late mother lived here for years. Does that tell you how bullish I am about this place?
My daughter has made it light, bright, and very Lilly: it’s like coming home to Palm Beach at the end of a long day. You are on the second floor — no shared long hallways or elevators. This unit is a two bedroom, two bath: one bath has a huge tub, the other a shower. Both have generous vanities. There is a utility room with storage, two walk-in closets, and a master bedroom that alone measures a whopping 23 by 13. Two covered parking spaces kept their cars safe during last spring’s hail storm.
Clearly, this condo is larger than many houses in Midway Hills or Little Forest Hills. And it has one of the best locations in town. Either you walk to Preston Center, or you drive east to North Park, west to the tollway, south to Highland Park Village. And the condo folks take care of everything, from leaf blowing to putting up holiday lights.
At $199,000 and bursting with cuteness, it won’t last long. Which has me concerned, very concerned: my guest room may soon be occupied… which is fine with me as long as I get custody of that chandelier!
