WalletHub recently named Frisco as one of the three best places for real estate in the country. The Oxford Economic forecast projects Denton county will be the fastest growing economy in the nation over the next five years, and Collin county the second —in the nation. Remember Frisco lies in both counties. Let’s also not forget that Money magazine selected Frisco as one of the best places to live in America.

Expanded Austin Stone English Estate Home in East Kessler | CandysDirt.com

Our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is an expansive and impressive Austin stone English estate home in East Kessler Park. The North Oak Cliff beauty at 1052 Kessler Pkwy. sits on 0.6 terraced acres framed by arching shade trees and a swimming pool, guest quarters, and outdoor entertaining center. 

With over 7,300 square feet on two stories, this property is not lacking for space — it was expanded substantially in 2007 in a way that complements its 1940 design. This home has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, one half bath, eight living areas, and two dining areas. 

“This beautiful home would work exceptionally well for a large or growing family, but with its [oversized] entertaining spaces, it could work just as well for a young professional couple that enjoys entertaining for business or pleasure,” said Steve Habgood, one of the listing agents with Dave Perry-Miller InTown. “It sits within the estate section of the rolling hills of East Kessler Park and affords a very private & serene setting, with a lush backyard and pool.”
