3320 S Ravinia f

Some of the most lush and secluded properties in Dallas can be found in Oak Cliff, where there are rolling hills and lots of green places.

Our Thursday Three Hundred is a truly one-of-a-kind property at 3320 S. Ravinia Dr., near W. Keist Boulevard and S. Westmoreland Road in Kiestwood. This contemporary home has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,636 square feet on four stories/five levels, built in 1985.

It feels like a treehouse with the unusual floor plan and an almost tropical backyard with a custom swimming pool and beautifully landscaped yard. Both bedrooms are designed as master suites, and the home has lots of luxe extras, from mahogany floors and open staircases, to a wine cellar and granite and marble throughout. The icing on the cake is a balcony off the fifth-floor master that overlooks the gorgeous backyard.

OC BLVD Front

It’s amazing what you’ll find when you’re just browsing around MLS, and boy, are there deals to be had! I cannot tell you how thrilled — THRILLED! — I was to see that yes, you can still buy a great home in Oak Cliff for under $200K.

Check out 322 S. Oak Cliff Blvd, listed by Virginia Cook agent Susan Melnick. This home is just adorable inside and out! Lovely front porch with a swing, and the fresh paint with bright white trim really makes this home pop. Walk inside and it’s super cozy! Here’s the real shocker, though: this three-bedroom, two-bath home has more than 1,200 square feet and is priced at …

… $165,000!

I know! I can’t believe it either! Seriously, this home is adorable and the perfect way for someone who wants to live in Oak Cliff but doesn’t have the budget for a huge Craftsman or Prairie-style home in Winnetka Heights or Kings Highway.

You’ll love the way this home flows, too, and the kitchen was recently remodeled to make it both gorgeous and functional. A lot of homes in this area, which is called Sunset Hill, still have ancient kitchens with the washer and dryer right in the middle of them. Not only do you have sleek stainless steel appliances with gorgeous cabinets, but you get room for your washer and dryer OUTSIDE OF THE KITCHEN! Brilliant!

The bedrooms are a great size, and you’ll love the huge windows, too. Another bonus to this house is the refinished hardwood floors that look just breathtaking throughout the home, and make the bedrooms feel cozy and elegant at the same time.

There are two baths in this home, one of which has an awesome claw-foot tub and the other has a pre-fab corner shower unit. I am not a fan of those, but you know what? There are two bathrooms in this home, which is practically unheard of for a house built in 1924, so I’ll just appreciate that there’s a second one and leave it at that. Both baths feature new hardware and updated vanities, too.

The backyard is where you’ll really start to warm to this home, and boy, isn’t it just gorgeous in the fall with that lovely maple tree? This cottage sits on an absolutely immense corner lot, giving you 1.26 acres all to yourself. How amazing is that? You’ll love the detached two-car garage, too, which faces the adorable brick patio accessible by both the laundry area and the master bedroom’s french doors.

Honestly, in Dallas right now, this home will give any buyer the most bang for their buck. What do you think?
