The marvelous home at 625 Kessler Reserve Ct. is in the new Kessler Reserve development in Oak Cliff. Its location just south of West Colorado Boulevard puts it in the heart of North Oak Cliff, but because it’s a gated community and the area is heavily treed and borders a spring-fed creek and 19-acre park, the overall feel is private. The development is  3 miles to downtown Dallas, making it super convenient, too. This house is new construction with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, and 2,992 square feet on two stories, sitting on the highest point of Kessler Reserve.

With this home, architectural elements combined with the use of efficient space allow the indoor living to blend with the outdoors. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide ample natural light with upstairs windows looking out to a canopy of trees. The kitchen is gourmet, with Bosch stainless steel appliances, including a gas cooktop, as well as floor-to-ceiling white cabinets on one wall. The refrigerator/freezer and microwave are built in, giving them a seamless look.

The living room has 10-foot ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace, and dark, wide-plank hardwoods are everywhere except the bathrooms. The master bedroom is spacious with a wonderful ensuite bathroom, with separate vanities, a soaker tub, and walk-in shower with frameless front and modern tile.

It was listed July 18 by Faisal Halum with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty for $940,000.

We love a charmed cottage, and the house at 5811 Palm Ln. in North Stonewall Terrace doesn’t disappoint. It’s adorable curb appeal is matched by a thoughtful interior with good flow and lots of updates. This home has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,257 square feet, built in 1941.

Sitting just blocks from SMU on secluded cul-de-sac, this cottage has a new mater bathroom, privacy fence with electronic gate, landscaping, stainless steel appliances, and interior paint. We love the vintage touches, like arched doorways and an original fireplace (now decorative). They add a lot of character to the home, which also offers lots of modern features. The kitchen has many of them, like a stainless steel gas cooktop, lots of glass-front cabinets, and an on-trend look. There’s a detached one-car garage and lots of green space in the back, too.
