East DallasIt’s not often you find an East Dallas home with four bedrooms and two baths for less than $250,000, which is why Lauri Ann Hanson with Dave-Perry Miller InTown knew to alert us that she had what she calls “a unicorn.”

In the $300K range, Dallas houses rarely come with more than a quarter of an acre of land, and often less than that. So imagine our delight when we came across an Oak Cliff midcentury modern home sitting on 1.27 acres for only $310,000. 

Located at 3421 S. Ravinia Dr., our Thursday Three Hundred is in the boundaries of the Kiestwood Historical Homeowners Association, near West Kiest Boulevard and South Westmoreland Road. The house feels secluded, surrounded by mature trees, yet it’s only 10 mile from downtown. 

This home has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,412 square feet on one story, built in 1954. There is an open house this Sunday, Sept. 2, from 2-4 p.m. Want a sneak peek?  (more…)
