While the home that Dallas City Center Realtor Tony Nuncio is sponsoring for the Heritage Oak Cliff Fall Home Tour is far from old, he won’t hold that against it. An Old Oak Cliff Conservation League (now Heritage Oak Cliff) member since 2007, a founding member of the Oak Park Estates Neighborhood Association, and now a proud resident of the Kings Highway Conservation District, Nuncio has long been dedicated to the area. 

In fact, he and his partner of 21 years, Terrance Nichols, opened their remodeled 1920s bungalow for the 2015 home tour — a sacrifice on the altar of neighborhood fundraising that all home tour participants know too well. Though we are in love with his adorable house, this year, Nuncio is proud to sponsor the gorgeous, modern take on the glass house at 804 Kessler Woods Trail. Trust — there will be no stone throwing coming from us, as we’re completely in awe with not only the house itself, but with the views.

1545 W. Colorado Blvd. is a stunning Hutsell-designed home with beautiful curves and tons of history.

The Old Oak Cliff Conservation League has always had a mouthful of a name, which was even more cumbersome as an acronym — OOCCL. But that’s all in the past now, as the organization seeks to focus on the area’s heritage — Heritage Oak Cliff, to be exact.

This year’s historic home tour will show off the architectural diversity of Oak Cliff on Oct. 21 and 22, from noon to 6 p.m. both days. Tickets can be purchased through the website (which is still ooccl.org for now) as well as  Kessler Baking Studio, Lucky Dog Books or at participating Tom Thumbs (315 S Hampton, 6333 Mockingbird, 522 Preston Royal Center, and 633 W. Wheatland in Duncanville).

Read on to preview this year’s tour homes, which includes the impeccably restored Hutsell-designed mansion perched on a hill at 1545 W. Colorado Blvd.
