Word comes from The Advocate that the Spanish-style mansion at 1704 W. Colorado Blvd. will be auctioned on the steps of the George Allen Courts building on Commerce St. July 7. The home, which has raised the hackles of neighbors after hosting weddings on the grounds. Still, we are absolutely saddened by the thought of anyone losing their precious home. We attempted to contact the homeowner, but the only phone number listed for the property has been disconnected.

This isn’t any ordinary home, though. Named one of the “Most Beautiful Homes in Dallas” by D Magazine and featured on the Dallas Open Days Garden Conservancy Tour, this Kessler Park home has some stand-out features, including a 4,000-square-foot main home and accompanying structures, expansive gardens, and tremendous views of the nearby Stevens Park Golf Course and Coombs Creek.

Bidding starts at $500,000, according to the Auction.com listing for the property, however, Dallas Central Appraisal District has it on the rolls for $939,880. How much do you think it will sell for?
