Thursday Three Hundred: Bare Bones Historic Structure in North Oak Cliff Could Become a Show Home

434 W. 12 Front

Today’s Thursday Three Hundred is unlike any home we’ve featured before. It’s in a great location: the historic Dallas Land & Loan neighborhood that is south of Jefferson Ave. and West of Bishop Ave., and it is an incredible investment. This home is so close to the Bishop Arts District, and it is in an area that is poised for some serious growth.

And you can make it completely yours because this baby comes with absolutely nothing but drywall.

Talk about a golden opportunity, right? This incredible four-bedroom, two half-bath (yes, no full baths!) home has more than 2,400 square feet. It would be an amazing live/work property, with a loft-style upstairs and a studio downstairs. Thanks to the location, this incredible home will be a sound investment. Values in North Oak Cliff are projected to rise an average of 5 percent according to Zillow, and this property is listed by Dave Perry-Miller InTown agent Michael Bates for $307,500. Imagine if you did some cool finish-out with reclaimed materials … the possibilities are endless!

This property does have recessed lighting installed, as well as a standing seam metal roof. It’s only been on the market for 23 days, so it’s entirely possible that it could be snatched up soon. You supply the interiors and the creative juices to make this a real asset in the neighborhood. Perhaps you’re a photographer, or a designer, or an artist, or a sculptor, or anything, really. You could put a gallery in this space and it would fit like a glove.

In fact, if you’d rather lease, this is a possible build-to-suit opportunity you can rent for $2,500 a month.

Or it could be all yours.

  • That is just awesome on a stick! What a great raw space for some lucky owner!

  • I love this home – kind of unusual for the area, as most of the homes are wood sided and at least 50 years older – I think this house is late 1930’s to early 50’s
    I drive by this jewel all the time – it’s right across the street from Calle Doce original location!
    And the some to be renovated Jefferson Tower ( with Oak Cliff’s newest Brewery) is right around the corner.
