Splurge: Jaw-Dropping 1920s Swiss Historic District Home In Heart Of East Dallas For $699K


Jaw-dropping is an understatement when it comes to this home’s impeccable remodel. And we have to admit, it was the richly appointed kitchen that caught our eye. Open shelving, sleek quartz counters, brass hardware, and dark cabinetry are on-trend. We love the abundance of natural light streaming through French doors to the patio.

Courtney Jubinsky of Dave Perry-Miller Preston Center has listed 3119 Oliver Avenue for $695,000.

Landing the perfect Knox-Henderson home at an affordable price is like finding a needle in a haystack, right? Wrong! We found one of the last remaining single-family homes in the area, and received a call from Dave Perry-Miller himself to chat about this once-in-a-lifetime listing.

“I think what makes the property exceptional or unique are the following: It is one of the only single-family houses left in all of Knox-Henderson in the entire city,” says Perry-Miller. “Secondly, it has a detached garage, a wonderful screened-in porch, and a terraced courtyard in the back, so it’s got a certain amount of privacy. And my gosh, I lived there for the last year and a half to two years after I sold my big house in Bluffview and I loved it!”

East Dallas has lots to offer, and that includes the neighborhood of Ridgewood Park. Bound by Abrams Road to the west, Lovers Lane to the north, Fisher Road to the east, and the Ridgewood Trail to the south, this small enclave packs a mighty punch, offering quick access to White Rock Lake and major Dallas thoroughfares, as well as fantastic home values. One look at these two beauties in our latest Splurge vs. Steal and you’ll see Ridgewood Park is worth a look.
