Bud Oglesby Condominium on Armstrong and Travis $799,000
Bud Oglesby, FAIA, with Oglesby Architects, designed the best residential public spaces in Dallas. Bud Oglesby designed modern homes as large as 10,000 square feet or, like this modern Oglesby condominium on Armstrong and Travis, homes with 2,392 square feet. However, whether large or small, these modern architecturally significant homes open to voluminous and open living spaces that connect to the rest of the home. This modern residence has a further advantage with the living room wall of accordion glass doors that open to the freshly renovated outdoor living room and side courtyard with a vertical water feature, enjoying the dappled sunlight from the nearby canopy of trees.
Armstrong and Travis
The corner with the modern Oglesby condominiums on Armstrong and Travis connects the vibrancy of the Knox Street area retail located across the street with the leafy residential neighborhoods and Katy Trail beside and behind the Oglesby-designed condominiums. This is a perfect site for an architecturally significant modern condominium. Here, the elegant modernity of the home is combined with the whole reason one would want to live in a city: the ability to stroll to great restaurants, shops, the Katy Trail and still be around the corner from Highland Park.
Protected and Vibrant
This Oglesby-designed condominium located on Armstrong and Travis is part of a collection of Oglesby architect-designed modern residences that wrap around the corner of Armstrong Avenue and Travis Street. While many condominiums are being built in dense areas or in a hodgepodge of different era apartments or surrounded by sun blocking buildings, this Oglesby condominium on Armstrong and Travis enjoys the continuity of the other two-story Oglesby-designed modern residences of this prestigious project, the trees that line the street and living spaces that open to a private, sunny, side courtyard. This modern home is also just steps across the street to Travis Walk and great restaurants. You will enjoy the special attention the neighborhood restaurant staff and shopkeepers will bestow on you as a neighbor.
Interior spaces are open and commodious. The living room has a wall of glass doors with retractable screen that open onto a wood and light-paneled courtyard with a water feature that enhances the outdoor living room. Recently installed travertine floors are also found on the first floor. Several second floor spaces are filled with light from multiple skylights and large windows provide views of trees.
Architecturally significant homes hold their value. Architect-designed modern homes like this Oglesby condominium on Armstrong and Travis will become even more valuable in time, as the Knox area becomes increasingly vibrant, the Katy Trail is enhanced and connects to more parts of the city, and opportunities for condominiums in the area become fewer. Certainly no other location or site combines the peaceful environment and vitality of this Oglesby condominium on Armstrong and Travis.
