"Affordable Oak Cliff living"

The Dells District is located in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas and it is a small neighborhood with some tidy single family homes and some in not so great condition. It is just east of the town of Cockrell Hill, and this area has for the past two decades been a high crime area. But, if you're looking for a reasonably priced single family home, there are choices here for just over $100,000.

The area is served by Dallas Area Rapid Transit, so it's easy to commute to any part of the city. Downtown Dallas is only a few minutes to the east and there are several options in the area for food and drinks. There are the usual fast food chains in the area, and you enjoy traditional Mexican cuisine or Tex-Mex, this is an excellent neighborhood to get it. If you want to have a drink with some of the locals venture over to Singleton Boulevard where there are a couple of sports bars and lounges.

The Dells District of Oak Cliff is a neighborhood with very reasonable housing prices and it's close to Downtown Dallas and a short drive to just about anywhere in the Dallas Ft. Worth Metroplex.
  • close to Downtown Dallas
  • heavy traffic on adjacent roads during rush hour
  • rising crime rates over the past two decades
