What has four bedrooms, three baths, and a gigantic backyard? It’s 719 North Madison Ave. in North Oak Cliff.

The cheerful and freshly painted prairie-style home marketed by Susan Melnick of Virginia Cook Realtors is the perfect place for someone looking to move across the Trinity. And at just $285,000, it’s affordable, too!

Of course, it’s got all the accoutrements you’d expect from a newly updated historic home — granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, energy-saving windows — and a completely blank slate for a backyard.

Seriously, you could do ANYTHING back there, which is what most Oak Cliff residents do. Chicken Coop, vegetable garden, or, if it gets too hot, you could put in a dumpster pool!

Yes, that’s right. DUMPSTER POOL!

But even without a dumpster pool, all 2,500 square feet of this home are super cool. Check out the French doors that separate the living areas. And the bathrooms are very sleek, and probably still smell like fresh paint!

But if you’re moving to Oak Cliff, it’s all about location, and 719 North Madison Avenue has it. This house is just two and a half blocks from all of the quirky restaurants and shops that call the Bishop Arts District home.

Of course, since you’ll be living so close, you won’t need to navigate the district’s abysmal parking lots. You’ll ride your bike or you’ll bring Fido along for a walk!

If it were possible to kidnap a house, I’d be down in North Oak Cliff in a heartbeat with a truck.

Actually, I want the fireplace and I want it NOW!

When I first saw the listing, which is new, I about died. I emailed the agent feverishly and asked who the interior designers were who owned this home — so talented!

“The owners are a wonderful young couple with an eye for the aesthetic,” said Brian.  “Where else can a person get 2700 updated square feet with a pool on an excellent block of an excellent neighborhood for $369k???” 

And as an indication of how wonderful the community is, the neighbor’s kids set up an OJ stand and played the violin for guests at Brian’s Open House this past Sunday!

I’m probably going to O/D you on photos, but here’s what you need to know about 1015 North Clinton Ave:

It’s in the beautiful Kessler area of North Oak Cliff, walking distance to the Stevens Park Golf Course and significant parks, as well as to the Bishop Arts District. Period details include a large brick fireplace in the sunny living room, hardwoods throughout, and spacious room sizes. A large first floor room serves as either a study or third bedroom, in addition to a great family room with access to the sparkling pool. Two-car garage has a bonus. Built in 1924, pier and beam, updated, three bedrooms, three baths.

We should really start a CandysDirt wager on how long before this angel goes under contract, but I think that might be illegal, especially when I post it. But seriously, I bet there’s a full price contract come Sunday.

Just tell that darling neighbor kid to get out his violin! (I played violin! It’s hard!)

Price — you won’t believe: $369,000.
