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…)

Oak Cliff is a Dallas area with a rich history, and some of the most storied neighborhoods in the city. Keistwood Estates is one of them, with gently rolling hills and mature shade trees. The more than 400 homes in the area represent the largest, intact concentration of midcentury ranch style houses in Dallas.

Our Tuesday Two Hundred, at 3306 S. Franklin St., offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,875 square feet on one story, built in 1955. This is a recent remodel with a fresh, updated feel, featuring one-inch oak hardwoods throughout, fresh paint, and lots of updates. Low-E windows, attic insulation, and a tankless water heater provide important energy efficient details for this home.

Deep in the heart of Oak Cliff, the Kiestwood neighborhood is a hidden jewel, with rolling hills, arching shade trees, and tons of vintage charms.

It’s also home to some seriously affordable real estate, like our Tuesday Two Hundred, located at 2412 Whitewood Dr. Our DFW market is certainly getting more expensive, but this house shows it is still possible to score something great for just over $200K.

Located on a landscaped cul-de-sac lot, this home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, and 1,794 square feet on three stories, built in 1960. It’s a split-level ranch with gleaming hardwoods, an updated kitchen, picture windows, spacious rooms, and a park-like backyard with a screened-in porch.

How is all this so affordable? That’s Kiestwood! Let’s take a closer look.
