Inspiring Houses: Kessler Woods Development

Our former home base of Dallas doesn't boast a ton of exciting modern homes. That's why I'm excited to see Kessler Woods, a development in my former neighborhood of Oak Cliff, taking off and getting tons of press, press and more press.

In a city more famous for really awful McMansions, Kessler Woods offers 30 unique, architect-designed modern homes with exceptional design, construction and finish out.

Priced from $500,000 to $2 million, they aren't close to Austin's Agave development in affordability. But, they're designed by such architects as Frank Welch and are certainly more high-end.


The setting is beautiful, with thick trees, creeks and softly rolling hills. And, only minutes from downtown. The only negative thing I'll say is that, for this price point, the homes are jammed a bit too close together.

Some of the properties are already sold, but there are many left.

If you are visiting Dallas anytime soon and are remotely interested in modern development, you should seriously check it out.

They aren't exactly affordable, though, are they?

Just stumbled across the site. Amy and I happen to be building in phase two of Kessler Wods on Lot 24. We just posted up a new site to track the progress.

Roads for phase two should be in by the end of August. We hope to break ground in early October. they're making pretty good headway on Lot 1, 2, 6, 10, 11 and 12. F!D Luxe just had a nice 5 page spread on Lot 4.
