Tony Nuncio Doubles Down on Oak Cliff’s Future and Heritage

While the home that Dallas City Center Realtor Tony Nuncio is sponsoring for the Heritage Oak Cliff Fall Home Tour is far from old, he won’t hold that against it. An Old Oak Cliff Conservation League (now Heritage Oak Cliff) member since 2007, a founding member of the Oak Park Estates Neighborhood Association, and now a proud resident of the Kings Highway Conservation District, Nuncio has long been dedicated to the area. 

In fact, he and his partner of 21 years, Terrance Nichols, opened their remodeled 1920s bungalow for the 2015 home tour — a sacrifice on the altar of neighborhood fundraising that all home tour participants know too well. Though we are in love with his adorable house, this year, Nuncio is proud to sponsor the gorgeous, modern take on the glass house at 804 Kessler Woods Trail. Trust — there will be no stone throwing coming from us, as we’re completely in awe with not only the house itself, but with the views. 

Though we’re sad we won’t get to ogle Nuncio and Nichols’ adorable abode, we’re thrilled to attend this year’s Heritage Oak Cliff home tour on Oct. 21 and 22. (Photo: Shoot2Sell)

“It’s a little over 3,000 square feet and designed to take full advantage of the beautiful views from the nearby Twelve Hills Nature Center,” Nuncio said of the Mark Domiteaux design. “Bringing the outdoors inside is the goal, and there is excellent native landscaping. A pool was added in 2016 by the current owner, with a deck and beautiful outdoor space.”

Of course, sponsoring a home tour stop is no easy task, but Nuncio — ever the achiever — went that important step further. “I’m on the selection committee — we preview the houses in March and April,” progressively paring the list down. This year, the committee had to make many tough choices to bring you a robust, diverse group of homes that each showcase a different architectural perspective of Oak Cliff. 

The stunning modern home at 804 Kessler Woods Trail has gorgeous views of the adjacent Twelve Hills Nature Center.

Tour goers will appreciate the committee’s good taste as they meander through the eight impressive homes, which include an absolutely perfect Hutsell-designed manse in Kessler Park — a stark contrast to the angular modernism of Domiteaux+Baggett’s aesthetic. And though we absolutely admire the architecture of these homes, don’t miss the interior details.

“The interior is phenomenal and the art collection is very eclectic and cool,” Nuncio said of the Kessler Woods home. “Another unique feature is the small footbridge to the front  door. From there, you enter a cool sunken living room with accordion-style glass doors.”

The tour runs this weekend, Oct. 21 and 22, from noon to 6 p.m. Tickets, which are $20 for general admission and $15 for seniors, are available online
