Kiestwood House Offers Potential for Acreage, Warm, Contemporary Interior

Just eight miles from downtown Dallas and a few minutes from Bishop Arts, a newly listed Kiestwood property impresses with its warm, spacious interior, potential for acreage, and great location in an established neighborhood. 

The house at 3224 S. Ravinia Dr. sits on just over a quarter acre and the property backs to additional 1.75 acres that’s also for sale. It’s walking distance to Oak Cliff Nature Preserve and Kiest Park, so outdoor life is a big part of this property, too, which has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, and 2,688 square feet on two stories, built in 1962. 

The Kiestwood neighborhood has more than 400 houses built between 1950 and 1965 and they offer lots of charms. Some of the big appeal of this area is its proximity to the 263-acre Kiest Park, which features multiple sports fields and courts, garden areas, playground, picnic areas, a rec center, and trails. This house is walking distance to the park, as well as Oak Cliff Nature Preserve and Pecan Grove Park

Another notable in this neighborhood is the longevity of many of the homeowners. You’ll find many who have lived here a quarter-century or more and the sense of community is strong in the area’s rolling hills and wooded lots.

Welcoming curb appeal with mature landscaping and a front porch feature big in this house. Inside, hardwood floors reflect the light from large windows. The flow is natural and easy in this house, moving from a front dining area to a living room, which is anchored by a fireplace with a large brick surround. 

The sun-filled kitchen has large windows on two walls and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. 

In the master bedroom, find high ceilings and an updated ensuite bath with oversized walk-in shower, dual sinks, tons of storage, and wood-clad jetted tub. Like the master, all the bedrooms have hardwood floors. 

A quaint reading nook opens to the spacious back patio and treed yard. It looks like a secluded, lush spot back there. 

This home was listed yesterday by Jenni Stolarski with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty for $375,000.
