Oak Cliff

Nowadays, it’s getting harder and harder to hear the Oak Cliff “Oh” — that pause you used to get when you mentioned you lived in Oak Cliff, or wanted to go to Oak Cliff. In the year 2019, Oak Cliff is a highly sought after spot, and while living near Bishop Arts, Kessler Park, and other neighborhoods might be out of your price range, Cedar Crest is a great neighborhood full of charming homes.

We’ve told you about Cedar Crest before — a well-established neighborhood close to downtown, with a busy neighborhood association and the historic Cedar Crest Golf Course. It’s also home to a more affordable pocket of Oak Cliff, as this home at 2207 Alabama Avenue confirms.

The one-story, three-bedroom, two bath home is close to the Dallas Zoo, Bishop Arts, and more. It was built in 1923, and has been impeccably updated with an eye to its history and charm, but still with the modern amenities everyone desires.

The home has new floors throughout (with a moisture barrier underneath) and a remodeled kitchen that is open to the main living space.

Practicalities have been taken care of too, with new windows, new electrical work, new insulation, new HVAC, and a Nest thermostat and smart lock.

“Once you step into this home, you will fall in love with the bright and airy feel that will make you feel right at home,” said listing agent Renee Uberta with Keller Williams Realty Allen.

The Cedar Crest home is listed for $189,000. Want to see more? Click here.
