Kessler Park Colonial
This Kessler Park colonial is precisely the sort of home people dream of finding when they decide to move to the rolling hills of Oak Cliff. It embodies all of the original 1935 New England charms but has undergone an extensive remodel, which means no work for you!

Featured on the Oak Cliff Home Tour, it’s clear 1006 Lausanne Avenue has been not only well-loved for over 80 years, but also beautifully maintained and continually and carefully updated.

When you have location — you have it all. Our Inwood House of the Week at 1123 Kensington Lane is not only in one of the best locations in Dallas, but it’s also one of the finest Texas Modernist homes you’ll find anywhere. Located on a hill about thirty feet above Stevens Park Golf Course, architect Aaron Angle created a vision in dry stack stone for a client that had fallen in love with Oak Cliff. (more…)

 

So rarely does a home blend with its surroundings so well that it feels native to the land, but that’s the perfect way to describe this gorgeous midcentury modern on more than an acre in Forest Lane Estates. Designed by noted modernist architect Herschel Fisher in 1955 for a doctor and his family, this stellar example of post-war modernism was renovated and expanded in 2000 by AIA award-winning architect Russell Buchanan, adding a master bedroom suite, a pool house, and a three-car garage.

The additions, much like how the home connects with the park-like setting that surrounds it, are seamless. The attention to detail is incredible, making it an easy pick for our High Caliber Home of the Week, presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans

To many, this home, with its beautiful carpentry and huge walls of floor-to-ceiling picture windows, is a dream house. “It is rare to find a midcentury design on such a grand scale,” notes David Griffin, who is listing 11550 Wander Lane for $2.75 million. “This home is around 5,700 square feet, and that doesn’t include the guesthouse/cabana.”

In the search for a cool midcentury modern home in East Dallas, you’ll come across a lot of duds. Some of them, while once cool, have had their interiors sacrificed to the altar of dated renovations. It’s a sad sight to behold. But once in a while you come across a real gem that has been lovingly maintained by owners conscious of the period. This week’s High Caliber Home sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is one such property. 

It’s a listing from midcentury modern expert Realtor Brandon Stewart at David Griffin & Co. and it will bring joy to the heart of any fan of the era. Just see inside!

When listing agent David Griffin said, “You have to see this one,” I drove right over. (more…)
