Oak Cliff Ooooh: Elmwood Cutie Ready for Renting

Share News:

ElmwoodWe’ve written a lot about Elmwood — a great Oak Cliff neighborhood that’s having a bit of a resurgence thanks in part to its proximity to Bishop Arts District and its own small business district.

And despite the popularity of BAD, Elmwood is quite the force in and of itself, with about 1,373 houses and 4,426 residents, making it the most populated single-family home neighborhood in Oak Cliff.

Not ready to buy? That’s quite all right — we’ve found this adorable Elmwood Cottage that has been well-maintained and updated — the ordinary rental it is not.

In fact, we’re pretty sure that 2010 Melbourne Avenue, with its two bedrooms and one bath, is a cut above a lot of rental homes in Dallas when you factor in location and the updates the home has seen.

The bathroom has been remodeled (check out the tile work in the bathtub surround), the kitchen has gotten upgraded with butcher block and quartz counters, and the whole place has had a fresh coat of paint.

A separate utility room with a full-size front-loading washer and dryer included means you can save your quarters and your back, and is probably something you don’t see in the standard-issue apartment often, either.

A large backyard beckons for plenty of conversations around a firepit or a barbecue, and if you don’t feel like entertaining at home, you’re close to Bishop Arts, walking distance to the DART line, and close to Wynnewood Village and its redevelopment.

The rent for this Elmwood home is $1,295 per month, and it’s listed by Riann Emch with Keller Williams Urban Dallas.
