Candy's House of the Week
Now I’ve seen everything. “Grass” is not a word we associate with urban living, unless it’s on the roof — or, well, another variety. Uptown and downtown dwellers generally have a love affair with concrete. Urban dogs make doo (pardon the pun) on cement, and savvy ones carry sanitary bags on their leashes.
In fact, a lack of grass is why most condo owners have small dogs — or no dogs at all.
But there is one high-rise condo available with its own private lawn, where you can actually wiggle your toes in the grass right outside your front door —without ever stepping foot on the elevator. For only $2,249,900, you can have a 2555 N. Pearl St. address and a little yard to boot.

If Austin Powers is your hero, baby, well shagadelic. Unit #100 is a totally mod first-floor pad stuffed with spectacular contemporary furnishings, and they are included in the purchase price. There is even wallpaper on the ceiling.
The kitchen has top-of-the-line gourmet appliances; wine storage; granite counters; and rich, custom-finished cabinets. The master is huge, with a sexy, sophisticated spa bath decked out with double stainless steel vessel sinks.
Will you get bored in 2,732 square feet? Maybe. But the pool is a short walk away, as are all the other perks of living at the Residences at the Ritz-Carlton: spa, exercise room, members lounge, wine storage, and Fearing’s for room service or preferred dining.
Then, of course, there’s Uptown, Klyde Warren Park and the Dallas Arts District just beyond that.
This baby comes with two large bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, two dining areas and one living area. And because it’s on the ground floor, you never have to race anyone to the elevator.
The only real problem I can see is getting your old lawn mover out to chop chop those tiny nooks and crevasses. Oh, wait! HOA dues of $2,395 include plant upkeep and mowing. Phew. Because a weed whacker is the last thing you want to worry about in Uptown, right?
