Perhaps I’m biased because my flock wasn’t featured in the June 2012 D Magazine story by Michelle Saunders, but it feels like East Dallas was a little over-represented. There are plenty more avid chicken keepers in Oak Cliff, specifically in the little nook just north of Ledbetter called Hideaway Valley.

This is one of those rare, one-of-a-kind homes that has been published and will probably be under contract by the time you read this post. Built in 2007, the creative art-director owners snapped up this newly constructed, loaded, two-bedroom, 1608 square foot two story townhome and immediately set to customizing and re-designing it from the stained concrete floor up. So immaculate, it looks brand-new in every corner. Huge, open living/dining room opens to a stainless kitchen with granite counters and customized tile backsplash. There’s a cute guest room and bath down, and a great filtered-light back patio with HUGE concrete table. Rear two car garage! Upstairs is the master, huge old-fashioned bath and walk-in closet with a spacious, wired balcony and the MOST GORGEOUS VIEWS of downtown Dallas EVER. The neighborhood: The Cedars, one of the city’s newest, most hip environs, is loaded with artists and other creative types, just like the owners of 1813 Ervay, listed with Subhi Gharbieh at Clay Stapp.
If cookie cutter home and ‘hood is NOT your cup of tea, run, do not walk, over to this home because at this price, it will not be on the shelf for long! Oh, did I tell you how much? $224,900. Yup, and only $20 a month in HOA.
