Perfectly Preserved Spanish Colonial on Coveted Kessler Park Block

Some homeowners see a house as so much more than a place they come home to at the end of the day. For that special breed of owner that falls in love with a historic home for its charm and character, they become stewards of its history. 

Thankfully, the owners of 1215 N. Winnetka were the kind of stewards that poured so much time and so many resources into this stunning Spanish Colonial. This home, a fresh listing from David Griffin and Company Realtor Robert Kucharski, was an obvious choice for our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans

“The stucco exterior and the tile roof are defining characteristics of this classic Spanish Colonial,” Kucharski said. “And it’s located in the heart of Kessler Park, too.”

 There are so many incredible historic details in this 1921-built home that it’s an endless feast for the eyes no matter what room. 

One of the first things you’ll notice when you step inside the Spanish Colonial 1215 N. Winnetka is the smooth plaster on the walls that accentuate the architecture of this three-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bath home in North Oak Cliff

“The architecture is the first and foremost draw of this home,” Kucharski notes. “The plaster walls and beamed ceiling in the living room add to the historic character.”

Historic home aficionados will also appreciate the beautiful period light fixtures throughout the 2,720-square-foot, two-story. And though the home is coming up on 100 years old, several upgrades have made it easy to love well into the next century. That’s especially evident in the kitchen.

“The fully appointed kitchen offers all the amenities one could want, including stainless appliances, granite counters, glass-front cabinets, and storage space galore,” Kucharski said. “The views from the kitchen make it an ideal space for everyday living and for entertaining with French doors that open to the backyard oasis.”

The master suite, which is on the second floor, is impeccable, too. It’s big without being overly large for the scale of the home, and sports an en-suite bath, study, and a private covered balcony from which you can relax and survey the surrounding neighborhood. It’s quite the perch on quite the street in a neighborhood with some of the most enchanting topography you can find anywhere in the city.

If that wasn’t enough, the backyard is beyond any expectations you may have for a home of this age. Not only is there a beautiful sparkling pool, but the landscape is perfectly lush with a large patio and arbor and shaded area for entertaining. There’s a detached two-car garage that also has a studio space and bath that could easily become a fully fledged guesthouse or a pool cabana.
