New construction in North Texas is not keeping up with demand, especially in the lower price brackets. Our Tuesday Two Hundred at 3526 Gibsondell Ave. in Oak Cliff’s Dells District is a charmed exception. Built in 2016, it comes with a builder’s warranty and everything is still all shiny and new.
This home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,473 square feet on one story. There’s a lot to recommend this property — let’s take a look.
The Dells District neighborhood is a small area of cottages located southwest of the Jefferson Boulevard and Westmoreland Road intersection. Nestled in a wooded area off a busy street, the neighborhood backs up to the riverbed of Coombs Creek. As the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League notes, this area “remains a charming enclave of cottages with well-established trees and an excellent potential for first-time homebuyers.” We like this changing part of Oak Cliff.
This house has the curbside feel of a cottage, but its siding differentiates it from its neighbors, which are mostly brick or stone. Not much in the way of landscaping — what was planted is teeny, so this would be a project for the new owner.
Inside, you’ll find high ceilings, a neutral palette, recessed lights, open floorplan, lots of natural light, arched doorways, and darker ceramic floors that look like wood. The kitchen with an island is open to the living area, and offers white cabinets, a center island, glass subway tile backsplash, large pantry, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range.
The master bedroom overlooks the shady backyard and has a closet and ensuite bath. A nearby laundry closet has space for full-size stacked washer-dryer.
In back, there’s a privacy fence and new storage building that, like the house, has radiant barrier. It’s currently being used as a workout room.
This home was listed July 31 by Lee Dirickson with RE/MAX DFW Associates for $310K, reduced to $295,000. The refrigerator, washer, dryer, and miscellaneous furnishings are negotiable.
