Well, the house I was going to feature today got snapped up so fast it made my head spin! Thank goodness I called Jennifer Stolarski of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s to find out from the horse’s mouth that 715 Tenna Loma was optioned just hours before I called her on Monday.

It goes to show just how hot Oak Cliff is that a two-bedroom, one-bath house with a backyard living quarters would get snagged so fast. Stolarski, though, not one to disappoint, said she had another listing in Kidd Springs that was right up our alley — 815 Kidd Springs Drive.

This house, priced at just $189,900, has three bedrooms, one bath, and a workshop. It’s a great opportunity to live right next to Kidd Springs Park and in a very bike friendly area of Dallas. You’re within a mile of great shopping in the Bishop Arts District and you’re just down the road from downtown!

This Tudor has a lot of windows and plenty of character. The living and dining rooms are clean and show well, with the neutral paint contrasting from the dark finish of the hardwood floors, which have been recently redone.

If you don’t mind a bit of elbow grease and you want to put your own stamp on a house, the kitchen could use a lot of help. The cabinets, linoleum, and countertops hearken from the late ’80s, but it’s livable until you save some scratch to do a major overhaul.

The bedrooms are pretty typical, and the bathroom doesn’t need too much work besides perhaps upgrading the vanity counters with something a little more sleek than laminate. There are two sinks, which is a definite plus.

There’s plenty of outdoor space, too. Besides the huge side porch, there’s a pretty big rear patio, perfect for a backyard barbecue on cooler nights.

As for schools, Kidd Springs feeds into Rosemont Elementary, Greiner Middle School, and Sunset High School, all of which are experiencing a surge of community support!
