Finding a large home in the under-$400K price range can be a challenge in Dallas. Today’s Thursday Three Hundred solves the problem with over 2,600 square feet and a great Oak Cliff location.
The home at 1516 S. Oak Cliff Blvd. in Sunset Hill has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,657 square feet on two stories, built in 1950. It was taken to the studs for a total reimagination. Now it offers an open concept living-dining-kitchen area with a large fourth bedroom upstairs that can be used as a mother-in-law suite or split into two bedrooms. Let’s check it out.
What began as the John Merrifield farm in 1843 is now the thriving Oak Cliff neighborhood of Sunset Hill. It was annexed by the city of Dallas in August 1915. As the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League explains:
Hann and Kendall, two of the developers of Highland Park, were responsible for the wide boulevards and tree-lined streets seen here…The wide variety of architectural styles [in Sunset Hill is] conducive to new homeowners seeking to renovate homes in the area. Some fine examples of Prairie foursquare are seen, along with charming brick Tudor and Spanish eclectic cottages and later homes built in the 1930s and 1940s.
Walk inside and enjoy the view into the open living area, with red oak hardwood floors, recessed lights, and lots of natural light from the back wall of windows and glass doors. The kitchen is the star of the show with striking granite countertops, a large center island with seating, a gas cooktop, new cabinets, and stainless steel appliances.
The first floor floorplan also offers a master bedroom and two additional bedrooms, all with hardwoods, as well as a large laundry room with a shoot from upstairs. Cool feature! The master bath renovation created a modern space with a garden tub, dual sinks, contemporary tile treatment, walk-in closet, and walk-in shower.
Upstairs, the spaces have unique architectural lines and new carpeting.
In back, there’s a large patio with a pergola, lots of grassy green space, and plenty of room for entertaining. There are mature trees, too, a big bonus.
This Sunset Hill home was listed April 30 by Deanna Castillo with Virginia Cook Realtors for $385,000.
