2154 Kessler a

The Kessler areas of North Oak Cliff are some of the prettiest — and hottest — real estate markets in Dallas. Our Thursday Three Hundred sits on the north end of the Stevens Park Golf Course and Coombs Creek in the gated Highlands Condos.

Unit 29 at 2154 Kessler Ct. is a 2-2 with 1,434 square feet, built in 1974, near Kessler Parkway and North Edgefield Avenue. It’s a light and airy unit with cathedral ceilings, lots of big windows, and updates that make it modern. The condo also has an attached two-car garage.

It was listed May 17 by Elizabeth Chapman with Century 21 Judge Fite Co. for $298,000. Monthly HOA dues are $460 and include blanket insurance; exterior, common area, and yard maintenance; full use of facilities; and management fees. Those common areas include a club house, community pool, and access to a greenbelt by Coombs Creek.


Jenni Stolarski and Robb Puckett are a regular dream team. You can just feel the excitement and enthusiasm radiate off of them. The two Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s agents are passionate about Oak Cliff and the beautiful homes inside one of the most popular resurgent neighborhoods in Dallas.

I really do believe that Jenni and Robb are at least partly responsible for the enormous turnaround Oak Cliff has experienced in the past decade. The neighborhood that was once derided for being perceived as crime riddled and dilapidated is now the place to be for the new generation of homeowners.

In fact, I am fairly certain that unique homes such as 930 Kessler Parkway will grow in value as the area continues on its inevitable path toward gentrification. So I guess what I’m saying is that if you are in search of an amazing home and don’t want to over-pay, East Kessler is a great place to buy, especially this Juris Laivins-designed contemporary.

This home is beautiful inside and out, and with all of the gorgeous windows it feels like living in a treehouse as you look out onto the heavily forested one-third-acre lot. You get three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and more than 3,000-square feet of space that is perfect for entertaining even the largest crowds. And at $635,000, it’s a great way to get all of the beauty, luxury, and convenience of living in the East Kessler!

Cool things about this house: The ladder rail bookcase in the living area, the two-sided vanity in the master bathroom, and the tons of cabinetry that will make every neat freak swoon!

Hurry! Snatch this beauty up!
