Renovated Oak Cliff Home Ready For a First-Time Buyer

Share News:

Oak CliffWhen we asked Realtors last week to give us their cutest homes during our Thursday call for pitches, Bethanne Carter-Buffington with Colleen Frost, REALTORS told us about this adorable listing in Oak Cliff she said would make a perfect Tuesday Two Hundred.

“It’s a gorgeous Oak Cliff reno!” she said.

And she’s right. This 1924 cottage located at 2738 W. Brooklyn Ave. has been lovingly renovated, and is ready for a new family. How ready?

“The sellers are willing to leave it completely furnished,” she said.

So first-time homebuyers and downsizers, check this out (although we would also argue that at this price, it would make a great investment property as well) — a three-bedroom, two-bath home with 1,348 square feet of living space, all recently renovated and ready to go.

Throughout the home, beautiful hand-scraped hardwoods (with the exception of the kitchen and bathrooms) make the home feel warm and homey. An ample living area and dining room flow into a smartly renovated kitchen, for an open floor plan that makes the home feel roomier.

The kitchen has granite countertops, new cabinets, a huge island, and stainless steel appliances.

“This kitchen is ready to host Thanksgiving!” Buffington said.

The master suite was expanded to include a seating area, and the en-suite is light and bright.

The home is also secure, with a complete surveillance system, wi-fi enabled lights, and a smart thermostat. A new outside air unit was installed this year, and new ductwork was installed last year.

The home is also zoned for Lida Hooe Elementary (which met state standard and earned distinctions in science and academic growth), Stockard Middle School (home to Beth Poquette-Drews, the DISD and Region 10 Teacher of the Year for 2019), and Sunset High (which met state standards and earned four distinctions).

This adorable Oak Cliff home is listed for $215,000.
