I’ve heard a few new-to-Dallas people complain that homes in our fair town are “homogenous” or “generic” or “all the same.”
To which I often exclaim, “POPPYCOCK!” or something equally ridiculous. Sure, if all you look for is a McMansion on a teardown lot in the M Streets, then that’s all you’re going to find. But if you branch out, find a Realtor who knows where the hidden gems are, and keep an open mind, you can find homes like this warm contemporary in Kessler Woods.
This home, brand new to the market from David Griffin himself, is a shoo-in for our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. When you’ve found your dream home (and let’s be honest, this one definitely qualifies as a dream home!) don’t take your chances — call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans before you put in your highest and best offer.

Griffin has sold homes in this Oak Cliff enclave brimming with modern architecture, but this home at 2219 Kessler Woods Ct. is at the top of his list of favorites.
Designed for entertaining and art, the home is anchored by a two-story, gallery-style entry, he says. Open spaces and tall ceilings, plus wide-plank hardwood floors, bring the outside elements indoors. You can see the expansive rear patios and stunning pool from the large windows throughout.
In all you get four bedrooms, three full and one half bath, a two-car garage, more than 4,400 square feet, and tons of outdoor space for $1.395 million. Considering what that amount will buy in Lakewood, the Park Cities, the M Streets, and Preston Hollow, this is an amazing deal. And it’s a one-of-a-kind home, too.
I love the layout of the den, bar, dining area, and kitchen, which feels connected and yet independent. And you will love the bright and accessible kitchen, with copious custom cabinetry, professional-grade stainless steel appliances, and a huge window over the sink.
Seriously, what’s not to love?
That same seamless merging of open spaces, modern shapes, and natural materials continues upstairs to the master suite, which has a separate living area and fireplace. The master bath is anything but ordinary, letting light in from a clerestory window over the vanity without sacrificing privacy. This master suite is just exactly what I would create for myself, right down to the striking stone used in the tub and shower surrounds.
