More amazing press from Candy's Dirt.   Thanks Candy!

 

While the home that Dallas City Center Realtor Tony Nuncio is sponsoring for the Heritage Oak Cliff Fall Home Tour is far from old, he won’t hold that against it. An Old Oak Cliff Conservation League (now Heritage Oak Cliff) member since 2007, a founding member of the Oak Park Estates Neighborhood Association, and now a proud resident of the Kings Highway Conservation District, Nuncio has long been dedicated to the area.

In fact, he and his partner of 21 years, Terrance Nichols, opened their remodeled 1920s bungalow for the 2015 home tour — a sacrifice on the altar of neighborhood fundraising that all home tour participants know too well. Though we are in love with his adorable house, this year, Nuncio is proud to sponsor the gorgeous, modern take on the glass house at 804 Kessler Woods Trail. Trust — there will be no stone throwing coming from us, as we’re completely in awe with not only the house itself, but with the views.



“It’s a little over 3,000 square feet and designed to take full advantage of the beautiful views from the nearby Twelve Hills Nature Center,” Nuncio said of the Mark Domiteaux design. “Bringing the outdoors inside is the goal, and there is excellent native landscaping. A pool was added in 2016 by the current owner, with a deck and beautiful outdoor space.”

Of course, sponsoring a home tour stop is no easy task, but Nuncio — ever the achiever — went that important step further. “I’m on the selection committee — we preview the houses in March and April,” progressively paring the list down. This year, the committee had to make many tough choices to bring you a robust, diverse group of homes that each showcase a different architectural perspective of Oak Cliff.

Tour goers will appreciate the committee’s good taste as they meander through the eight impressive homes, which include an absolutely perfect Hutsell-designed manse in Kessler Park — a stark contrast to the angular modernism of Domiteaux+Baggett’s aesthetic. And though we absolutely admire the architecture of these homes, don’t miss the interior details.

“The interior is phenomenal and the art collection is very eclectic and cool,” Nuncio said of the Kessler Woods home. “Another unique feature is the small footbridge to the front door. From there, you enter a cool sunken living room with accordion-style glass doors.”

The tour runs this weekend, Oct. 21 and 22, from noon to 6 p.m. Tickets, which are $20 for general admission and $15 for seniors, are available online.

Here's a sneak peak of 1545 W. Colorado courtesy of Candy Evans at Candy's Dirt.  Thanks Candy!


There are many reasons why I love 1545 W. Colorado Blvd, aka the Kessler Park House With The Blue Tiled Roof. There’s the step-up from the street, so very majestic. You’re on top of the world every time you walk up, and you rev your quads to boot.

The front porch!  Balcony!

The front door. The foyer. The sweeping staircase and bannister. The rich, dark hardwood floors. The mosaics over the windows. The tiles. The bathrooms. The woodwork and moldings — check out the square door panels, rounded door moldings and hinges. All straight from 1927 when the Spanish colonial home was first constructed. The plaster walls. The master bath: huge vessel tub, two wall-mount sinks, two art deco white chests for storage, walk-in shower, did I say the tile?, wood floors in the master bath, kitchen, library, living and dining room. Progressive preservation is alive and well in Kessler Park, a neighborhood unlike any other in Dallas. Architectural Digest has figured this out, too, which is why they are taking a serious look at this home …


The timeless clay tile roof, wrought-iron scrollwork and Moorish accents, the Romanesque colonnade. Thank you sweet Jesus, the home was meticulously restored and expanded by Dallas architect Bryan Trubey in 2008. Sold last summer for full asking at $1,625,000 to buyers represented by Collin Curtis. And the house has been taken to a haut new level by designer extraordinaire Margaret Chambers, with landscape design re-shaped by Lee Roth.

Do not miss it! Seriously, go to the Home Tour, and call me after you see it!

2016 Home Tour Preview II - Siesta
PDF Print E-mail
 

When you walk into this ranch style home at 2115 Siesta Drive you have the feeling that you have walked back in time to 1956 when it was built. It was lovingly maintained over the years by the Cannefax family who raised 4 children in this home. The home features scalloped wood trim on the many doorways, closets and built-ins, all of which are in mint condition with the original wood finish. The Cannefax kids will tell you there are creatures in the woodwork! See if you can find them! The vintage bathrooms are in keeping with the era with tasteful colors and beautiful tile work that is still in pristine condition.
