Post-War Traditional in Dells District Won’t Last Long

Share News:

dellsWhen this 1946 Minimal Traditional in the Dells District hit our desks Monday, we knew we had to share it before it disappeared.

After all, the Dells is one of the hidden gems of an increasingly gentrifying Oak Cliff, with hills and long, winding streets, and even a creek running through it, the neighborhood is a little slice of green, dotted with adorable cottages and homes that have been well-maintained and often still in possession of their post-war sensibilities, yet updated for the needs of 2019.

That’s the case with this home at 3410 Burlingdell Avenue. It’s only been on the market six days, and at three generous bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths, this 1,440 square foot home likely won’t last long — not at its $249,900 price point.

The home has newly-refinished hardwoods and new carpet in the master bedroom, and a new front door, as well as several new fixtures. The bathrooms still have their original tile, well-maintained and ready for your own modern spin.

But the really great thing is that home is move-in ready, but still has some potential places where a new owner could put their stamp on it.

“Classic tile in the main bath could stay and laundry could easily be converted into an ensuite master bath,” listing agent Bart Thrasher with David Griffin & Company said, adding that the home is a real bargain since it’s priced below its tax value.

We’d also say that while the kitchen is serviceable for now, a new owner might want to eventually make some updates, and perhaps adjust the layout to be more cook-friendly.

In addition to being a great bargain with grown-in-to potential, this Dells District home is within walking distance to Martin Weiss Recreation Center, several taco places (hello, breakfast tacos), and has easy access to I-30 for commuting purposes.
