This sleek home in Kessler Park is a stunning example of a home that is designed to maximize the outdoor spaces both within the home and outside its walls. It doesn’t hurt that it’s inside an amazing gated community in one of Oak Cliff’s most posh neighborhoods.
Truly though, this listing at 2223 Kessler Woods Court from David Griffin, is a fantastic example of a more modern take on Texas regionalist architecture, incorporating a stark, yet rustic exterior by pairing bright white stucco, clean lines, and a standing seam roof in a classic shape.
Built in 2008, this home has open rooms with huge windows and the most amazing hardwood floors. These floors are just heartbreakingly beautiful. I would never use a rug in this home, which has 3,671 square feet with three bedrooms, all with private baths. There’s an additional half bath in this home, too. It’s on the market for $849,500.
I love that the three-car garage is practically in a separate building that joins the main living area of the home with a long glass-enclosed breezeway that has the most gorgeous stone floor. There’s an office or studio above the garage, too, which is perfect for an at-home business or for someone used to being inspired after traditional business hours. There’s another loft, too, which has all the room you need for a home gym or yoga room.
The kitchen is a great size and is the perfect layout for someone who loves entertaining, but doesn’t like opening their fridge to the main living/dining area. That’s just a general pet peeve of mine! Of course, I love the huge island, which also functions as a bar, thanks to the wine fridge that is neatly hidden on one end.
The living room is a step down from the dining area, and really shows off the first-floor views in this home, which really feels like a beach house on this level. The vaulted ceilings, gorgeous brick fireplace, huge sliding glass doors that open to the side yard … all of it feels so serene, doesn’t it? Hard to believe that this home is just a few minutes from Downtown Dallas.
The bedrooms, all of which are on the second floor, open to the long wooden balcony, which has views of the treetops. The master bedroom, which is 17 x 13, has its own fireplace, as well as the most gorgeous bathroom. I love the views and layout of the master bedroom, and even though I’m all about the white and gray, I love this sagey green on the walls in here. In the master bath, you get a jetted tub, beautiful stone all over the place, and a long modern vanity. Don’t you love how the designer added depth to the bathroom by using a slightly darker stone in the shower? Perfection.
There’s a lovely angular pool with a natural stone deck in the backyard, as well as a relaxing hot tub. The backyard is fully fenced, which adds an extra layer of privacy in this secure neighborhood. There is a mandatory HOA, as you’d expect. But all together, this home is totally worth it. Find out how you can finance this gorgeous home with Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
