You can tell the homes in Oak Cliff’s Kessler Woods are special. Clearly architect-designed. Mid-century inspired. Breathtaking location. Stunning attention to detail. But David Griffin of David Griffin & Co Realtors is dead on when he says Kessler Woods is one of the most significant modernist developments in the city. That’s why this 3,320-square-foot masterpiece on Kessler Woods Trail is our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
This three-bedroom, three and half-bath home was built in 2007, the same year that its renowned architect Adriana Meyer founded her own firm APM Architecture. A native of Guatemala City, Meyer couples contemporary style with environmentally conscious materials and smart use of natural light in her design.
“I love the way this home is designed with kitchen, living room, and upstairs views of the elegant pool and courtyard,” Griffin says. “The home is filled with windows and natural light, but it’s still intimately private because it’s built around the courtyard.”
The Pedini Italian Design kitchen is equipped with a six-burner gas Bertazzoni cooktop, a two-drawer Fisher & Paykel dishwasher, a built-in Viking side-by-side refrigerator-freezer, Bosch wall oven, microwave, warming drawer, and Miele coffee maker for the perfect espresso. The designer cabinets are plenty spacious enough to store bulky appliances and other seldom-used kitchen toys that tend to hang out on the counter.
The two-story home has luxury, style, and comfort down pat. There are two living areas downstairs, an upstairs media room with built-in cabinets, and three bedrooms including the master upstairs. The master suite has stunning floor-to-ceiling windows, custom closet system in the walk-in closets, dual sinks, garden tub, and standalone shower.
