Artistic expression meets an eclectic spirit at Novel Bishop Arts, a new apartment community designed to inspire with its location, amenities, and overall vibe.
With funky style and the conveniences of a new build, it's all about the lifestyle here. From lounging by the guitar-shaped pool (Stevie Ray Vaughan once lived nearby) to ordering up a flat white from the coffee shop downstairs, that lifestyle is anything but boring.
Here are five ways Novel Bishop Arts ups the ante for home-grown living in North Oak Cliff:
1. It's all about location
The secret is out about Bishop Arts, and this historic district offers more than 60 independent restaurants, bars, cafes, and retail shops. Novel Bishop Arts fits into the area seamlessly with its inclusive architecture, featuring the best elements of past and present.
This is where to live when you're ready to ditch chain restaurants and cookie‐cutter box stores for local, distinctive flavor and community activities. That can include hanging out with neighbors in the piazza downstairs or walking to a nearby restaurant for dinner.
2. Luxe Craftsman interiors
The units will have you saying yes to luxury living, with their wood-style floors; brushed brass fixtures; and high-end bathrooms (love the hex-tile floors, designer tile showers, soaking tubs, and quartz counters). Modern Craftsman kitchens feature two-tone gray and white cabinetry, premium appliances, retro-style backsplash, quartz counters, built-in USB ports, and oversized islands in most units. In the bedrooms, you'll find walk-in closets with built-in shelving and wood rods, and nearly all apartments also have crafted conveniences like desktop niches and built-ins.
In select units, huge Craftsman porches frame walk-out views of the Dallas skyline, and every unit comes with same-level access in a secured, above-grade parking garage with tech-enabled keyless entry.
3. Enviable amenities
The vibe here is modern vintage with an eclectic Texas twist, and the common areas reflect that. Think brick, metal, penny tile, and rich woods next to pieces commissioned from local artists and antiques sourced from creative places.
A tavern-style clubhouse is made for entertaining, with a full catering kitchen and resident lounge. A resident courtyard centers on the guitar-shaped pool, with grilling stations, petanque court, and covered dining area. Other perks include a decked-out fitness center, reserved bike storage and bike workshop, and the Lake Cliff Sky Terrace, which offers a breathtaking view of downtown Dallas that you won't find anywhere else.
4. Roommates welcome
With 22 floorplans on six levels, Novel Bishop Arts' apartments range from 569 to 1,430 square feet. In addition to studio and one-bedroom apartments, there are two-bedroom layouts that work great for roommates. With communal spaces like mudrooms and oversized balconies in select layouts, there's plenty of room for everybody's stuff. Another roommate favorite? Each unit comes with a front-loading washer and dryer.
5. Perfect for your pooch
With two separate dog play areas, this is pooch-friendly living at its finest. The walkable neighborhood and proximity to several dog-friendly parks, like Twelve Hills Nature Center, offer even more options. When Fido is looking less than fluffy, take him to the pet spa that's conveniently located just downstairs from your apartment.
