1568 Nob Hill Front

I’m from Houston, so seeing a home on stilts is no big deal. You see them all the time along the many bayous and river bottoms. A home on stilts in Oak Cliff? Well, that’s unique!

1658 Nob Hill Living

This house, 1658 Nob Hill Road to be exact, is perched among the treetops in Kessler Woods. It has two bedrooms, two full baths, and one awesome living room. This home does need some serious updating, which might help you whittle down the $329,000 price tag.

What’s awesome about this house? The huge windows, the fireplace, the sunken living room, the spiral staircase that leads to a loft-style bedroom, and of course all of those amazing views.

Less than awesome? The upholstery on the couch in the sunken living room and all of that awful wood paneling.


1658 Nob Hill Kitchen

Of course, you’ll have to completely gut the kitchen and get rid of those upper cabinets that block the view (why do that?). But at least Virginia Cook Realtor Susan Melnick acknowledges that this home needs some work.

It will be worth it, though. You’ll end up with a sweet master suite, too. Check out the master bath, which has two floor-to ceiling windows, and one of them gives you a great view from the garden tub! This house just oozes potential, but I kind of feel like the price is a bit high for how much work this house needs.

What’s you’re opinion? If you were putting an offer down on this home, what would it be?
