Kessler Park Prize Winner Is Perfect for a Dallas Green Thumb

Picturesque doesn’t even begin to describe this storied estate.

An exquisite Spanish Colonial and the recipient of the 2019 Preservation Achievement Award has popped up for sale at 1116 N Canterbury Court in Kessler Park. And with inventory as low as it is right now, it is a true miracle that this exceptional home even made it to the market before being swooped up.

Built in 1925, this home has been updated with integrity and expanded in 2017. With three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a full guest quarters with bathroom, the property is spacious without being excessive. The home is open concept enough but still maintains its original bone structure with an elegant formal living and dining room.

A classic entertainer’s kitchen features a timeless marble island and stainless steel appliances. A butler’s pantry is painted in a high navy gloss that is absolutely outstanding. There is not a martini drinking man or woman in this city that could resist resting against this beautiful bar for a drink.

The spacious family room allows for communal gathering and offers indoor-outdoor living via fabulous French doors. These doors open to a covered back patio on a gorgeous, lush lot. In addition to the full guest quarters and a two-car garage, there is also a greenhouse that is suited for planting to your heart’s content.

And last but certainly not least is the dreamy primary suite and its romantic bathroom. Think marble from head to toe, heated floors, a dreamy tub, a large shower, and a custom closet. If you are a bath person, the home search obviously stops here. When you see it, you’ll know.
