Let’s be honest. There are a lot of listings on the Dallas real estate scene that look the exact same. This one at 915 W Colorado Boulevard in Kessler Park is not one of them. This home that mixes Old Hollywood with traditional Dallas design is an example of a renovation done right. And while there are only three bedrooms, there are 4,280 square feet of thoughtful living space that prove if the bones are good, the beauty of an old home always stands the test of time.
There are endless things that excite the senses in this 1948 traditional. Arches, molding, exposed beams, etc. The kitchen features marble countertops with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, which make every meal prep feel that much more exciting. This functional yet fabulous space flows perfectly to a massive terrazzo-encrusted living space with a fireplace that most will only find in their dreams.
Our favorite area inside the home, however, is a gift that only the owners of the home can truly enjoy—the primary suite. Perched on the second floor like a terrific treehouse escape, this area of the home offers an updated bathroom and a private deck that boasts views of downtown Dallas.
And those attracted to Kessler Park are bound to be the kind who feel most at home in nature. The lush landscape of the neighborhood is striking and recognizable, and this .42-acre lot is no exception. Phantom screens installed on the property reveal a backyard that has a pool, manicured gardens, and an outdoor kitchen. A turfed lawn makes the property not only beautiful, but also low maintenance. This, as one knows, is a real estate rarity.
This home and this neighborhood are not typical. And that is on purpose. If you are one who likes to go off the beaten path, you’d be mistaken to let this listing pass you by.
