You’ve probably heard us fawn over this spectacular development of modern, sustainable architecture in Oak Cliff called Kessler Woods. It’s an enclave full of gorgeous homes designed and built by a who’s who of modern architecture and construction. The materials selections are amazing, as is the landscaping and views from the immense panes of glass covering these beautiful homes. It reminds us a lot of Urban Reserve in the northern reaches of Lake Highlands.  
 
Our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is special, though, even among its exceptional neighbors.  Constructed in 2005 as the residence of Kessler Woods’ own developer, Matt Holley, 2203 Kessler Woods Court was a commission for notable Dallas architect Patrick Hammers. He was tasked with designing a spectacular modern home with three stories of soaring glass that offer panoramic views from just about every room in the home. 
 
“The home has often been referred to as ‘The Terrace House’ as it offers three terraces, one for each floor,” says David Griffin & Company listing agent Courtney Tauriac. “These outdoor spaces offer a unique experience specific to their location.”
 
One of the unique experiences is the views of downtown Dallas’ iconic skyline.
