Young professionals may fight over this $250,000 urban Fort Worth condo
Yards are overrated. For all the playing, sunning, and relaxing, there’s also mowing and trimming and weeding. We say to heck with all that. High-rise living has its perks, and unit 503 of the Houston Place Lofts embodies them all.
After all, who needs grass when Funkytown’s most thriving cultural district is in your own backyard? Located at 910 Houston St. and listed with Fadal Buchanan & Associates, this 1,080-square-foot loft is just a stone’s throw from the nightlife action; yet perched on the fifth floor of the nine-floor building, it’s high enough above the fray to keep noise at bay. And priced at $254,900, the one-bedroom, one-bath condo is perfect for a young professional looking for a low-maintenance living situation.
Just imagine: You pull up to your two dedicated garage spaces on the same floor as your unit, making unloading your groceries a breeze. Then, you enter your airy, open-concept unit, with soaring ceilings and exposed ducts and pipe work. Other urban details, like exposed brick walls, nod to the building’s 110-year-old history as an office tower, which was converted to residences in 1996.
You’ll find upgraded finishes, including gleaming, mid-tone hardwood floors and granite counters in the kitchen and bath. With blond wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances, the kitchen, which overlooks the living space, is ideal for hosting friends for a big game or a cocktail before a night out. The sleeping area is spacious enough for a king-sized bed, with an en suite bath and large walk-in closet.
Bonus points if you decorate your loft like a cool vintage shop, as its current owners have. (Don’t worry: Your IKEA furniture will look just fine here, too.)
