Many people are saying that $300K is the new $200K in the North Texas market, and they’re correct that it’s getting harder to find a family home in that lower price range.
That’s part of what makes our Tuesday Two Hundred so unusual. Located in the Kiestwood neighborhood of Oak Cliff, the house at 2832 Ilahe Dr. is a handsome midcentury modern house with classic Roman brick, clean lines, and a split-level design.
“This is my favorite stretch in the areas, two blocks of hilly terrain, lined with trees, and a cul-de-sac, which is a rarity in the area,” said listing agent Ed Murchison with Virginia Cook, Realtors. “Kiestwood has become such an incredible neighborhood and it’s one of the premier areas if you’re looking for something under $300,000, and it’s even getting hard to find that there.”
This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,188 square feet on two stories, built in 1959.
“I love the way this house has a commanding presence on the lot and from the windows in front, you get a nice treetop view,” said Murchison. “The back terrain cradles you as you walk into that yard, which is completely private.”
This home sits atop a rolling hillside site offering great views of the neighborhood. Inside you will find spacious rooms, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, and cool modern fans. A front living room is anchored by a Roman brick fireplace flanked by built-ins. This leads to the dining area with a fun teal wall.
In the kitchen, you’ll find lots of cabinet storage, granite countertops, and a sunny breakfast room.
All three bedrooms are good-sized and the master has an updated bathroom. The guest bath has vintage tiles.
The backyard is terraced, offering multiple areas to relax or entertain. The lower level features an oversized two-car garage and storage.
This home was listed Aug. 1 for $299,000.
