Tuesday Two Hundred: New Townhome Part of Downtown Lewisville Redevelopment

001_Building ExteriorThe city of Lewisville is spending millions of dollars to revitalize its historic downtown area, and developers are flocking to the northern suburb. Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred takes us to the Belleville Village development near East Main Street and East Mill Street, to a new townhome at 313 S. Kealy Street.

Listed for $209,000, this three bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, two-story townhome is 1,827 square feet, one of six like it coming on the market in Uptown Village Lewisville. The brick exterior mirrors the look and feel of downtown Lewisville, and the aesthetic is a historic, urban look.

“This is going to be a walkable area, like Shops at Legacy or in Coppell,” said David Maez, Broker and Co-Owner at VIVO Realty, which represents the developer. “Our company really wanted to showcase the lifestyle that this development and downtown Lewisville will offer.”

The revitalization of downtown Lewisville is currently underway and will feature new restaurants, shopping, public space, and mass transit. Uptown Village Lewisville is part of the transformation. We’ll take a look later this week at the exciting changes happening in both downtown Lewisville and at Lewisville Lake. Jump to read more about this property! (more…)

Texas Real Estate Market Leads Nation

Texas is the place to be for economic prosperity and job growth, which in turn has made our real estate market one of the best in the nation, according to the 2014 Texas Annual Housing Report, released this week by the Texas Association of Realtors.

Nearly every area of real estate in the Lone Star State continues to get bigger and better, some of it astoundingly so, the report shows. Most notably, growth has happened in luxury home sales, international home buying, relocation activity, condominium sales, and remodeling trends.

“It’s a great time to live in Texas. The high demand for Texas real estate is not being fueled by speculation and investment activity—it’s driven by the thousands of people who move to the Lone Star State daily,” said Dan Hatfield, chairman of the Texas Association of Realtors. “People are moving to Texas from across America and around the world to take part in our state’s booming economy, business-friendly environment, and quality of life.” (more…)

OK, I may not understand it, but not everyone likes a loft. Some people want more walls to hang their art, more crown moulding, more niches and nooks. But don’t you want to live in one of Dallas’ coolest neighborhoods, right next to the redeveloping Dallas Farmers Market, close to the vibrant Cedars, and within walking distance of downtown and Deep Ellum? Who wouldn’t?

If this sounds like you, then you’ll adore this townhome at 912 S. Cesar Chavez Blvd. This gorgeous townhome was built in 2006 and is absolutely pristine inside. It has three stories, three bedrooms, three full and one half bath, more than 2,600 square feet, and a tremendous rooftop deck from which you can admire the fireworks in Fair Park during holidays.

The painting of the cyclist above the dining room bench is a dead giveaway for me that the sellers of this gorgeous M Streets townhome are urban, chic, and home to some folks who would rather commute on two wheels rather than four. Considering that Transit Bikes is just across Greenville Avenue from this adorable three-story unit with attached side yard.

1731 Mary Living 2

With more than 1,500 square feet, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, this unit is great for someone who wants to simplify without sacrificing. You get one garage spot, two living areas, and a very cool roof-top deck that is perfect for entertaining when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around. Listed by Dallas City Center agent Paul Carper for $249,000, 1731 Mary Street is a great value.

1731 Mary Kitchen

Some recent improvements to this 2003-built townhome include new hardwood floors and carpet, brand new water heater and dishwasher, and updated tile and shower in the master bath. While the kitchen is modestly sized, it has plenty of storage and is open to the dining and living areas thanks to a great bar.

1731 Mary Third Floor

I love how open and bright this home is, and the third floor is a versatile space that is being used by the sellers as a nursery. Obviously these folks are looking for a great 1-story ranch in a neighborhood inside the loop with good schools. Who wants to be they are looking in Lakewood or Lake Highlands, huh?

1731 Mary Master 1731 Mary master Bath

The new tile in the five-piece master bath is so pretty, and I love that there’s a second fireplace in the master bedroom. You’ll also love the sweet little side-yard to this townhome, which is great for someone who owns a small dog. And let’s not forget the generous rooftop deck. Such a great feature!

We featured the sister unit — 4830 Cedar Springs No. 39 — last week, but we were happily surprised to find that this complex has a second townhome for lease! It’s unit No. 10, and this gorgeous luxury abode has tons of upgrades and will only set you back $100 more per month!

cedar springs 10 stairs

Leasing now for $2,000 a month, this lovely brick townhome right in the middle of Oak Lawn’s culture hub is just perfect for a young single or couple looking to have immediate access to one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Dallas. Walkable and accessible, Oak Lawn is full of fabulous shopping and restaurants, and it’s close enough to work to bike or take mass transit.

Cedar Springs 10 Kitchen

This three-story townhome comes in at 1,606 square feet — about 100 more square feet than its neighbor for lease — and has two bedrooms, two and a half baths, and a large patio for outdoor entertaining.

The kitchen features fresh tile and granite counters, as well as high-end stainless appliances. There’s tons of prep space, too, thanks to the counter-height island that buffers the kitchen from the living area.

Palm Terrace Outside

I love brand new rentals! They have that new-car-like smell to them and they feel like a good pair of shoes that no one else has tried on. Being the first-ever tenant in a new development is pretty great, and if you want to move into a great, brand new townhome, this week’s featured lease is for you.

Local Dwelling’s Jason Lucas is showcasing units from Palm Terrace Townhomes near Greenville Avenue. There are 12 total three-floor townhomes at 5918 and 5922 Ross Avenue. They rent for $1,500 a month and have some cool features you won’t get anywhere else in this price range and at this location — a gorgeous all-stainless kitchen and a rooftop deck.

Palm Terrace Kitchen to Living

You get hand-scraped hardwoods, wrought-iron fixtures and railings, a fireplace, and granite counters in this two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath townhome. There’s 1,100 square feet of living space and a ground-floor, two-car garage.

Palm Terrace Master

The master suite includes a huge walk-in closet. And while there is carpet in the second bedroom, the hardwoods extend to the master. Note to developers: If I want carpet in my bedroom, I’ll buy a rug.

Palm Terrace Master Bath

The master bath is beautiful. I like the use of the oil-rubbed bronze fixtures and shower glass surround rather than nickel-plated or chrome. The vanity is definitely high-end and adds tons more storage.

Palm Terrace Rooftop

Here’s the rub, though — while this is a two-bedroom townhome, it’s not roommate friendly considering that there’s only one full bath. This home is best for a single professional or a young couple who wants to be close to both downtown and the nightlife of Greenville Avenue and needs space for an office or study.
