One of those East Kessler treasures built in 1948, updated to the hilt, but so beautifully preserved to retain 100% of it’s charm. Honestly, when I saw the beautiful pine ceiling and beams, I thought I was deja vu in a Carmel cottage! 1512 Sylvan sports freshly re-finished oak hardwood floors, an updated kitchen with granite, 5 burner gas stove, stainless appliances and slate tile flooring. Large stone patio areas front and back. The driveway goes through the property for easy access front or back, two car garage spaces. Two bedrooms, two nicely updated baths, and you coud not be closer to downtown Dallas if you, well, lived at the W. (Not at this price! And you are also close to Bishop Arts — I mean, walk!) This angele is priced at $229,000 listed with Sharon Hargett Keller Williams Urban. My God, it doesn’t get any cuter (or more perfect) than this!

We can only imagine how Todd is putting his feet up in this home after pulling off yet another Schlegel family wedding. Bring on the Hush Puppy slippers! No sooner than he gets comfortable, David Griffin is calling and bringing someone over for a showing. David just listed this Kessler Park treasure along with Jeff Mitchell. I also heard the home was leased out for Super Bowl week to a major celeb. Definite San Miguel de Allende feel in the hills of East Kessler, this home has been photographed and featured in so many shelter pubs you have to ask for an autograph!

The guys basically took a plain Jane Mediterranean  built in the mid 90’s, and refined the original design into something both livable but appropriate for intimate and large scale entertaining. Many rooms open onto verdant outdoor living areas and patios, like a grand hacienda.

From the gorgeously heavy mahogany front door to  every room, hand craftsmanship rules! Hand trawled plaster finish walls,  antique doors, panels and windows carefully  retrofitted to bring design authenticity. Flooring is unfilled 24 inch square travertine slabs in all the first floor rooms and outdoor covered living areas.

The living room is accessed via a charming entry vestibule, features a barrel vaulted ceiling and French limestone fireplace surround. The dining room has that Fiscus touch, surrounded on all sides by curtains hung from continuous iron rods.

The kitchen is spacious and open, built around a large marble topped central island, painted mahogany cabinets and stainless counter-tops. Stainless appliances include built-in refrigerator/freezer, wine cooler, warming drawer and a Thermador 6 burner gas stove. It’s a two-story with terra cotta roof and white stucco walls on one of those craggy Kessler 93 by 158 lots. The home has 2677 square feet (perfect for an empty nester) four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and a 2-car garage. And of course, if those walls could talk… well maybe they will to the next owner!
