Share News:

Ivandell Front

Just because you prefer to rent rather than buy doesn’t mean you have to live in a boring old apartment. If you’re looking for an amazing home to rent in one of the hottest neighborhoods around, Local Dwelling’s Jason Lucas has a charming cottage just for you.

Ivandell Master Bedroom

This Austin stone two-bedroom, two-bath home at 2639 Ivandell has so many cool little details that you won’t find in your run-of-the mill, mass-produced apartment. Throughout its 1,400 square feet there are tons of updates amid neat original features.


Ivandell Kitchen

The kitchen is completely updated, though, with new cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. There’s also a full-fledged bonus area in the back of the house with a sink and room for a front-loading washer and dryer.

The family room is where things are a little quirky — but in a good way, I promise! The room has exposed beams and a vaulted ceiling, and inside that space is a little loft you can access by a ladder. The area, which is hopefully air conditioned as I can imagine it might get stifling in summer, would be a cool reading nook or a study area for a kid.

This neat little home in North Oak Cliff is a great value, too. You can sign a lease today for just $1,250 a month. Find out more about this property and other outstanding single-family homes for rent at
