The prestige of a Turtle Creek address is well earned at 3225 Turtle Creek Blvd., Apt 1621. This penthouse-level, two-story condo has views of Lee Park and Turtle Creek from the balcony, and it looks like a model: totally chic and perfectly staged.

Built in 1998, this one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom is a total of 917 square feet. It has numerous recent updates and luxe amenities, from artist-designed tile on the balcony to a custom backsplash in the kitchen. There's a glass art deco panel in the entry the owner believes was in a 1930s hotel owned by Trammell Crow.

That entry is on the 16th floor, and highly polished granite floors greet guests and potential buyers. The master bedroom and bathroom are on this level, with new carpeting, a frosted glass door to let in more light, and a new multi-jet shower system. The owner hired an interior designer to pick the wall colors for the condo, and it was professionally painted.

Up on the 17th story are the living room, dining room, a half bathroom, kitchen, and that wonderful balcony with its killer views.

This level has hardwoods and granite flooring, art lighting, lots of natural light, undercounter lighting in the kitchen, and a new wine refrigerator that has never been used. The half bathroom has a new toilet and pedestal sink, and the condo’s water heater is new. New, new, new all over the place.

The condo comes with two parking spaces in the garage, one assigned, which is a major plus. Most art and furniture are negotiable in the sale, which will undoubtedly happen soon, based on the reasonable price, good looks, and views.

It's listed with Jack Carter with David Griffin & Company for $247,500, and the monthly HOA fee will run you $495. That swimming pool alone seems worth it, though there is also a state-of-the-art fitness room.
