Kessler Park is one of our favorite parts of North Oak Cliff, a neighborhood with history, topography, winding streets, arching shade trees, and so much more.
In this week’s Splurge vs Steal, we’re looking at two Kessler Park beauties. Which one is your favorite?
SPLURGE: AUSTIN STONE TUDOR OVERLOOKING STEVENS PARK GOLF COURSE
The gorgeous Austin Stone Tudor at 2302 Kessler Pkwy. overlooks Stevens Park Golf Course and has been redesigned to embrace the scenic views. This home has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, and 4,087 square feet on two stories, built in 1940. The third living area, fifth bedroom, and a second kitchen are part of an attached guest suite with a private entrance from the left side of home, with direct access to the backyard as well as a full bedroom and bathroom.
Inside the house, find impressive finishes from top to bottom including a kitchen that flows effortlessly into the living and dining areas, and oversized picture windows in many rooms. In the kitchen, find a space customized for entertaining, including a large quartzite island, commercial-grade appliances, dual wine captains, tons of gray Shaker-style cabinets, and double ovens. The lovely master suite has an ensuite spa bath with a sculptural soaker tub, amazing closet, and private balcony. All of the bedrooms have ensuite baths. The backyard has beautiful hardscaping, multiple seating areas, landscaping, and mature trees.
