East Kessler Park is one of Dallas’ storied neighborhoods, established in 1937 by developer Roy Eastus and the Stemmons Family. It has one of the most eclectic blends of architecture in the city, from late 1930′s Austin stone homes and ranchettes, to midcentury modern homes and ultra modern masterpieces.

The neighborhood is just lovely, with rolling hills, arching shade trees, and meandering creeks, and it’s just a few miles from downtown Dallas.
