1154 N Edgefield Front

Here’s another fantastic opportunity to live in Oak Cliff: This beautiful Kessler Square traditional offers lush landscaping and a fantastic neighborhood experience. At the southeast corner of Edgefield Ave. and Colorado Blvd. in Kessler Park, you’ll find this gorgeous home at 1154 N. Edgefield. It’s a stone-clad 1938 traditional that has been carefully updated and lovingly preserved. And if a 30-year mortgage is too much commitment for you, you can lease this property!

Listed by Coldwell Banker Realtor Kathy Murray, this three-bedroom, two-bath home with more than 2,000 square feet is available for $2,800 a month. This is a fantastic home for a family who wants to enjoy the amenities that North Oak Cliff offers, including artisan fare and blossoming schools. Seriously, this area is on the fast-track to superstardom!

Of course, there’s plenty to love inside this home, which has stunning hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, beautiful mouldings, and a renovated master suite. While the lot is shady, thanks to mature trees, you can enjoy plenty of diffuse light thanks to the ample windows around this home. There are two living areas, a formal dining room, and a lovely deck that sits atop the roof of the sunroom.

The living area is enormous, owing its spacious feel to the vaulted ceiling, and features a lovely fireplace and plenty of room to spread out. This would make a great place to watch movies, too, thanks to the plantation shutters than can darken this room substantially.

1154 N Edgefield Kitchen

The kitchen, well, it’s rather blah, isn’t it? I mean, compared to the rest of the house, it’s rather overlooked and left behind in the 80s and early 90s, when mirrored backsplashes and oak cabinetry were the rage. Still, it’s functional, and if you entertain, it’s definitely one of those kitchens that you won’t need to invite folks into.

The rest of the home is simply charming, though. The master suite is large and bright. The master bath has a set-in garden tub with a frameless glass half-enclosure, perfect for relaxing after a long day. The sunroom itself would make a great family room, or an office, as it’s being used now.

I am in love with the other areas of this home, though. The rooftop deck is phenomenal. Just perfection! The patio off of the sunroom looks out into the shady, serene backyard.

What a fantastic home to lease!
