Sometimes you just luck into a great rental in North Oak Cliff, and this is one of those times. In a neighborhood Facebook group, Richard Akers told everyone about his newly remodeled duplex with two available units right in the heart of Kings Highway — and we begged him for more details.

The duplex is an upstairs/downstairs property, and now that the dust has settled and been cleared out from the remodel, both units are available for immediate move in, Akers told us.

“The upper unit (1315) has a dramatic stairwell entry — perfect for art!” he said. “Both units have great views of the tree-lined street and backyard.” (more…)

ElmwoodWe’ve written a lot about Elmwood — a great Oak Cliff neighborhood that’s having a bit of a resurgence thanks in part to its proximity to Bishop Arts District and its own small business district.

And despite the popularity of BAD, Elmwood is quite the force in and of itself, with about 1,373 houses and 4,426 residents, making it the most populated single-family home neighborhood in Oak Cliff.

Not ready to buy? That’s quite all right — we’ve found this adorable Elmwood Cottage that has been well-maintained and updated — the ordinary rental it is not. (more…)

Located at 1022 North Windomere Ave., the well-maintained home has two bedrooms, one bath, and plenty of living space in its 1,378 square feet thanks to an additional sunroom.
