If downtown loft living is at the top of your real estate wish list, and you have only $225,000 to spend, consider unit 904 at Soco Urban Lofts, located at 1122 Jackson St., in the southwest part of downtown Dallas.
Actually, you only have to shell out $224,000 for this one listed with Jennifer Shindler of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. It’s the largest and most expensive of the four units in the building currently for sale. However, the per-square-foot price is $176, which is on the low end compared to the other three, which are going for $174, $184 and $209 per square foot.
This unit has 1,272 square feet, one bedroom and one bathroom. The interior feels industrial chic, with 11-foot ceilings, exposed ductwork and brick, and polished concrete floors — what you would expect from a building with roots as a railroad terminal and warehouse.
The windows let in lots of beautiful light, but solar blinds and drapes help with temperature control and privacy. Sadly, the chandelier above the dining room table is not included in the sale, so the new owner will just have to add his or her own signature lighting to the space.
The open kitchen boasts granite countertops and a hand-cut gray tile backsplash laid vertically, not horizontally, for added visual interest. The stainless steel appliances include a ceramic top stove and warming oven.
The bedroom area is just to the left of the entry, large enough for a king-sized bed plus side tables. Speaking of large, the custom closet can accommodate the wardrobe of even the most diehard clotheshorse.
The bathroom is made for relaxation, thanks to the oversized soaking tub with heated back and marble subway tile surround. Other nice touches: a glam light fixture and contemporary pedestal sink with high-end Kohler fixtures. Space for a full-size washer and dryer space is nearby.
From the unit’s south-facing windows you can see Reunion Tower and the Omni Dallas Hotel. For panoramic views, head to the rooftop, replete with pool and lounge area.
HOA fees are $484 per month, and that includes blanket insurance; exterior, front yard and common area maintenance; management fees; reserves; trash and water/sewer; and full use of facilities like the newly furnished gym, yoga room, community room, and rooftop pool and patio grills.
This unit also includes a same-floor dedicated storage closet, bike racks and an underground gated parking spot.
