I see so many houses day in and day out, week after week, that I’m pretty jaded. It takes some real creativity to get me excited about a home. So when I say that this Kessler Parkway home designed by Lake | Flato is exciting, I’m not exaggerating. 

First, we have to tip our hat to Lake | Flato for not tearing down the original 1948-built structure. Instead, the firm used the terraced backyard to create a unique feature in this week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week. The catwalk leads from the second-story addition to the backyard casita, which has gorgeous tree-top views and a relaxing outdoor shower.

It seems like it was just a short while ago that people would recoil upon hearing someone say that they lived in Oak Cliff. But look at us now. North Oak Cliff has become a magnet for homebuyers, with some areas becoming heavily sought-after for the location’s convenience and its litany of amenities.

But not everyone has it in them to buy an older home that may need some work and attention. Luckily for these folks, there’s a beautiful new build in North Oak Cliff that happens to be only four years old. It’s our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

“The location is incredible,” says listing agent Phillip Murrell with Compass. This particular 2015-built home is part of the North Oak Cliff development from StoryBuilt (formerly PSW). “It’s adjacent to Kessler Park in the Kings Highway neighborhood.”

Besides being a great-looking home, this location is so perfect because of its proximity to everything everyone loves about North Oak Cliff. You can walk or ride your bike to the Bishop Arts District, Twelve Hills Nature Center, and even hit the links in your free time, Murrell noted. “Vaughan Court is steps from one of the best public golf courses in Dallas — Stevens Park,” he added.

Kessler Square is one of our favorite areas of North Oak Cliff, and if you drive down the shaded avenues, draped with hanging boughs from the beautiful, old trees in this arboreal enclave, you’ll see why. The homes are so adorable, many of which have been updated in a loving manner, preserving the character of the neighborhood by keeping the vintage façades intact. 

Our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is a listing from Compass Dallas Summit Group Realtor Mohammed Jaber that is the perfect example of what Kessler Square has to offer. This adorable Kessler Square Tudor, complete with leaded glass and beautiful brick, is an absolute classic.

Tucked away in Kessler Square in North Oak Cliff is a beautifully renovated Tudor. But this particular Tudor is more than a house, it’s an education – in how to decorate and do it so very, very well. Basically, this Kessler Square Tudor is all the oohs and the la las.

Listing agent Melissa O’Brien nailed it when she said, “Every element is tasteful with just the right amount of fanciful, but always elevated. A gorgeous color palette grounds the home while carefully chosen wall and ceiling coverings make it fly.”

This North Oak Cliff California contemporary won’t make you choose between spaces made to entertain and a place to retreat!

When someone describes a home as “a retreat,” my mind automatically imagines a spa day. However, most homes are not at all like a trip to the spa. But this Oak Cliff California-style contemporary actually does feel like a trip to the spa, which is why it’s earned the title of Inwood National Bank Home of the Week. 

As an added bonus, this home is perfect for any party you can dream up, says listing agent George W. Hawkins II of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. 

“With the spacious open floor plan, it’s an entertainers dream,” Hawkins said. ” Plus, it has a master retreat that is separate from your guest wing.”

If that doesn’t say “relaxing retreat,” you might need to check your thesaurus.
