The temptation is, when it comes to building a new home inside close-in neighborhoods, is to make the most of the lot. Builders sometimes plunk down homes that look better suited to a new suburban development up north in Collin County than the historic, imperfectly platted neighborhoods in Dallas.
That’s where this new build in North Oak Cliff‘s Sunset Hill stands out. It’s a tidy, modest single-story home that has all the bells and whistles homebuyers want and doesn’t overtake the lot. And wouldn’t you know, buyers just love homes like this one. In fact, this listing from David Griffin & Co. Realtor Crystal Gonzalez went under option in just 12 days on the market. Now that’s proof of a High Caliber Home!

This home, located at 600 Hollywood Ave., is just a couple of blocks from Hampton Road and is just south of 12th Street. This is a really great location as it’s just outside Winnetka Heights, but not too far from the Bishop Arts District. Everything is still and easy, ambling bike ride away.
With three bedrooms, two full baths, 1,830 square feet, a fireplace, and a detached garage, this home by Guel Family Builders is a relative steal at $319,000. Transitional light fixtures, the perfect shade of “greige” on the walls, broad window trim, sleek kitchen counters, and a cool butler’s pantry between the kitchen and dining room sweeten the deal.
“This new construction looks as though it has always belonged in the popular neighborhood of Sunset Hill,” Gonzalez said. “Enjoy the historic aesthetic with all modern amenities including open kitchen and living room, large bedrooms, large master, wood floors, and 10-foot ceilings throughout.”
Of course, we can’t go without noting that with this property, you get a five-piece master bath (rare for this neighborhood!) and a huge walk-in closet (super rare!). I’m not in love with the bland builder-grade carpet in the bedrooms, as it really doesn’t cost too much more to extend the hardwoods to these rooms.
But the backyard is just the perfect blank slate for a family who wants to live an authentic Oak Cliff lifestyle, complete with backyard chickens and a vegetable garden. Get ready for people to ask you to host wine walks, float building for the Oak Cliff Mardi Gras parade, garage brewing for Brew Riot, and go ahead and put in a petanque court to practice ahead of Bastille on Bishop.
Sounds just right.
