You’ve all seen it. You drive past it, and every time you wonder how did they do that, why did they do that, and what does it look like inside. This year you finally have the chance to satisfy your curiosity about that wonderful house on the Kessler Parkway hill with the balcony resting gently on great, rising iron beams.

This structure of Tennessee Crab Orchard stone sits on a half-acre lot with towering pecan, cedar, and oak trees to welcome you up the steep hill onto a large, shaded covered-porch area. The house was built in 1957, but the original owners resided there only one year before a tragedy took their young child. The second owners called the house theirs for over fifty years. When the McDaniels, who are veterans of the Oak Cliff Home Tour, purchased the residence this year, they embarked on a three-month remodel.

Inside you will find a pleasurable mix of hardwood floors and plush carpeting. Unique custom cabinetry appears in the kitchen and living room. The newly remodeled kitchen, overlooking the wooded park area along the walkway path, has a great many modern features including granite countertops and a large wine storage refrigerator. There is a small, detached hobby room/garage that can serve many functions. The guest bedroom, master bedroom, and both bath areas have been recreated, enlarged, and tastefully decorated. The house has a crisp and smart feel to it with dynamic artwork on the walls. It is a bibliophile’s dream with floor-to-ceiling and bay window book shelves.

Stepping out on the balcony, experience the view from all directions. Each season brings excitement to the senses, as the trees, vines, and blooms are an ever-changing landscape throughout the year. Enjoy this Kessler Park house on the hillside.

When the current owners first saw this home nestled in the woods on an acre of land on a secluded street, it was love at first sight, and they knew they had found their idyllic location.   Designed by architect David Atteberry and built by developer A. W. Partleton in 1972, the home is perched on a cliff overlooking the woods and a creek.
