Tuesday (Le$$ Than!) Two Hundred: School’s Out, Time to Start Looking for a Place for the Cute Coeds to Live, Get Ready to Fall in LOVE!

Fasten your seatbelts, you are going to either die or fly when you see this ADORABLE unit at 5200 Martel in Uptown. 934 perfectly adorable square feet, one bedroom, one bath, just right for a hot new coed who’d like gated security too, thank you. Oh and a great big walk-in closet. It is owned by Jenny Grumbles. Jenny and her mom Fran Holley co-run a shop called Frantiquated. Basically, they find stuff, I mean like junk, in bulk trash bins and then they clean them up (Lysol them too, I hope), fix them up, and sell them in their shop. Some folks just have the eye, the talent to do this, and Jenny Grumbles is one of those peeps. See for yourself:

So what do you get? A great M-Streets ‘hood, Glencoe Park, and home values surrounding you of four times your purchase price. One bedroom, one and a half baths — every SMU coed knows we need to keep our personal potties pristine — kitchen, living room, breakfast, 1-car garage, and a swimming pool where you can hang out and study. Perfect transition from home to school, I think. My daughter had a condo like this when she was in law school in Oklahoma City  and I loved that she could pull into her garage safely. With an asking price of $113,000 you can go get an FHA loan at like 3.5% and never pay (rising, rising) rent again.

Come to think of it, this would also be a great, cheap second home in Dallas — I mean, seriously cheaper (and cuter) than a hotel room!
