North Oak Cliff is one of Dallas’ oldest established neighborhoods and it’s full of community gems, from multiple annual festivals and historic districts to family friendly outdoor areas and a streetcar system newly revived earlier this month.
Its diversity of architecture is one of its most appealing aspects for those who live there—the range of styles and eras makes for distinct, memorable neighborhoods with a range of options for homeowners.
Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is a West Kessler cottage at at 638 Tenna Loma Ct.—the neighborhood is bounded by Stevens Park Golf Course on the north, Davis Street on the south, Hampton Road on the west, and the Twelve Hills Nature Center to the east.
West Kessler is one of North Oak Cliff’s marvelous neighborhoods, home to about 150 households. You’ll find lots of late-1930s Tudor cottages, as well as newer Austin stone-and-brick houses in traditional and ranch styles.

This 1941 Tenna Loma cottage has 1,381 square feet with two bedrooms and one bathroom. It harmoniously marries vintage charm, like original light fixtures and stained glass insets, with modern updates, like stainless steel appliances and granite counters in the kitchen.
It is listed by Ged Dipprey at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and recently reduced $6,000 to $279,000.
