I heard from a member of an Oak Cliff power couple that there are no more affordable homes in the Cliff. Poppycock, I say! If you want a fixer-upper in one of the hottest areas in all of Dallas, then look no further than 2939 W. Ledbetter.
Built in 1954, this two-story home is still stuck in a time warp, but has some fantastic Midcentury Modern details that will look at home after an all-out update. There’s a fantastic glass screen, some gorgeous wood floors, and considering the ample size of the home — 2,374 square feet in all — you won’t have to scrimp for space.
There’s plenty to love about this three-bedroom, two-bath home, namely the two-sided fireplace in the living area, and the attached workshop and carport that will fit 6 cars or perhaps a couple of cars and maybe a boat or RV if that’s more your speed. And with two acres all around you, you won’t feel like you’re living in the city.
Even though this home is almost 60 years old, it still feels light and bright. That’s mostly thanks to the copious windows you’ll find in just about ever room. The kitchen will need an overhaul due to it’s small size and claustrophobic cabinetry, but once you’re done there, everything else is really a minor fix.
There’s a game room or living area upstairs that has a huge wall of windows outside which perches a balcony. From there you can see the expansive grounds surrounding the house, giving it a glorious feeling of isolation and privacy.
Not only do I love this house and all of its tremendous potential, but for $229,900, this place is a steal!
