Kessler Plaza Stone Cottage | CandysDirt.com

Our Tuesday Two Hundred takes us to the southernmost of the Kessler neighborhood, Kessler Plaza in North Oak Cliff. The Austin stone cottage at 2631 Marvin Ave. sits pretty on this tree-lined street among an eclectic array of architectural styles, from Tudor revival to ranch-style. Its curb appeal coupled with interior’s appeal and the home’s pre-inspection make it particularly desirable. 

Getting into any of the Kesslers for under $300K is harder than ever in our competitive real estate market, so this property stands out for that reason, too. The floorplan makes good use of its modest size — two bedrooms, one bath, and 1,324 square feet — and packs a lot of style into the house, which was built in 1941.
