A young professional who wants new construction in proximity to downtown should take a look at 4401 Roseland Ave. Unit B, an on-the-market condo in the newly christened “East Village” area near Carroll and Ross avenues in East Dallas.

It’s one of three units built together, with three levels and an open concept, including a private terrace on the second floor. It offers two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms within 2,000 square feet.

It’s a far cry from the run-down duplex it used to be. This place has curb appeal, with a cedar-covered garage door and facade that extends up to the aforementioned 250-square-foot private terrace.

On the first floor is a guest bedroom with 9-foot ceilings, walk-in closet, and access to a private yard. On the next level are the main living areas.

The ceilings get a bit higher — 10 feet — and the flooring transitions to bamboo. The kitchen features European lacquered cabinets with under-cabinet fluorescent lighting, quartzite counters, Porcelanosa frosted glass tile backsplash, and KitchenAid appliances.

The kitchen flows into a spacious and bright dining and living room combination, which connects to the private terrace. A breakfast table fits easily in addition to the main seating area, with room to spare.

Cat 6 wiring runs throughout the condo, including on the terrace, which means it would be easy to have a TV out there. With cedar veneer, recessed lighting, and outdoor fireplace, that terrace is a pretty spectacular amenity. All of your friends will want to hang out at your place.

The third floor holds the master suite and a study, but the feature most worth mentioning is the massive walk-in closet, which is larger than most bedrooms. Worth it to buy the condo just for this? Maybe.

The master bathroom feels polished and perfect, with a double vanity, LED lighting, Carrara marble counters, and gorgeous frameless glass shower. Just off the master is a utility area, with hookups for a full-size washer and dryer.

Listed with Steven Rigely with Rogers Healy and Associates for $399,000 — and with HOA dues of only $250 per month — this place offers a lot for the money, especially this close to the action.
