Cameron Nash had a lot of options when deciding where to buy his first home, but The Sorrento was clearly the best choice.

The five-story condominium complex marketed by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Updike│Pugh team offered the location, the amenities, and the equity that the 26-year-old was pining for after leasing an apartment near Lower Greenville Avenue. He closed on a one-bedroom, one-bath unit in November.

“I had been looking at making my first purchase for over a year, and the stability of the location, in terms of the Dallas real estate market over the last 20 years, was a big factor,” said Nash, who sells and leases commercial properties.

The Sorrento’s address is 8616 Turtle Creek Boulevard, which is basically at the corner of Northwest Highway and Hillcrest Road, about halfway between Central Expressway and the Dallas North Tollway. Nash and his neighbors get to enjoy the urban lifestyle, as they are literally steps away from a pharmacy, a dry cleaner, a dentist, an urgent-care clinic, a convenience store, a doughnut shop, and a variety of restaurants.

“It’s a nice transition from apartment living, as opposed to jumping directly into a house,” Nash said. “A major motivator for me was to build equity but also still have that apartment feel.”

Recreational amenities include a large plaza with an infinity-edge lap pool and spa, an outdoor fireplace with multiple seating areas, an outdoor barbeque area with gas grills, a 24-hour fitness center with state-of-the-art cardio equipment, an Italian cappuccino café with a flat-screen television, a conference room for private dining and meetings, and a formal party room with a caterer’s kitchen.

“They have everything an apartment complex has and more,” Nash said.

The Sorrento offers one-level plans, lofts and townhomes comprised of one, two and three bedrooms. Square footage ranges from 750 to more than 1,900, with pricing from $205,000 to $699,000. Consequently, the residents range from first-time homebuyers such as Nash to retirees.

“Honestly, living in an apartment complex full of younger people can lead to some inconsiderate neighbors,” he said with a laugh. “I like having a quiet place to live.”
