Dells District Home with Builder's Warranty, Feel of an Updated Vintage Cottage | CandysDirt.com

New construction in North Texas is not keeping up with demand, especially in the lower price brackets. Our Tuesday Two Hundred at 3526 Gibsondell Ave. in Oak Cliff’s Dells District is a charmed exception. Built in 2016, it comes with a builder’s warranty and everything is still all shiny and new. 

This home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,473 square feet on one story. There’s a lot to recommend this property — let’s take a look.

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.

The contemporary at 604 Kessler Reserve Ct. in North Oak Cliff is a stunner, and it’s one of our five featured open houses this week.

There’s no substitute for seeing a house with your own two eyes. Even the best real estate photography or video can’t capture the magic of walking into a property yourself and banging on the pipes, so to speak. So every week, we bring you our insider recommendations for the best five open houses to visit that weekend with our CandysDirt Open Houses of the Week column.

This week, we’ve picked five winners. You’ll find a jaw-dropping Texas Hill Country Contemporary in North Oak Cliff’s Kessler Reserve, an updated Lakewood Heights Tudor with original stained glass and its butler’s pantry, and more. They range in price from $309,900 to $1.12 million. Will you be visiting any? Leave us a comment and let us know!

The stunning University Park Tudor at 3325 Rankin St. is a thing of beauty, and it’s one of our five featured open houses this week.

The Internet is a beautiful thing when it comes to house hunting. But there’s no substitute for stepping foot in a home and seeing what it has to offer. That’s why we love open houses, and our CandysDirt Open Houses of the Week column was created to bring you an insider’s take on properties you don’t want to miss.

This week, our houses range in price from $389,999 to $1.025 million, and the selection is truly outstanding. You’ll find a range of properties, from a super-rare Pennsylvania Dutch farmhouse-style home, to an Alger Park cottage that feels like a treehouse in the woods. Let us know what you think of our choices, and if you know of any we should feature next week.

casa linda dallas homes for sale

It may get hotter than blue blazes during Dallas summers, but we have plenty of positively divine weather, too (stick your head outside today for proof—high of 74°!).

During these gorgeous days, outdoor space is a must. Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred, at 9206 Forest Hills Blvd., offers it in spades, with a secluded front courtyard and big backyard. This Casa Linda house sits on 0.33 acres, located near Buckner and Garland in East Dallas.

This is a 2-1 with 1,264 square feet, built in 1946. This is a modest-sized home, but with such a big yard, there’s plenty of room to add onto the house, if new homeowners desire.

It was listed Jan. 29 by Jenny Capritta with RE/MAX DFW Associates for $299,500.
