Tuesday Two Hundred: A Tudor That Even a Mother-In-Law Could Love in Kessler Park

Published July 25, 2012 by Joanna England

It always happens when you have a baby: Relatives come to stay for an open-ended period of time to “help” you. More often than not, they end up crowding things, and leaving you with more dishes in the sink and rings on your coffee table (Trust me, I speak from experience). Wouldn’t it be great if you had room for them that was detached from the main house? A place where you both could have some privacy?

You may think that you’d have to break the bank for something like that, but it’s not true!  In fact, you can have a guest house and live in one of the cuter neighborhoods in North Oak Cliff for less than $300K!

I present to you, discerning readers, 915 Stewart Drive in Kessler Highlands. This adorable two-bedroom, two and a half bath is just adorable, with recently remodeled bathrooms that gleam and sparkle and a very open kitchen and dining area. Marketed by the talented Hewitt & Habgood group, this little gem is perfectly priced at $297,000.

The details are outstanding, like recessed lighting and gorgeous archways. This home feels much bigger than 1,542 square feet, too, thanks to the vaulted ceilings.

The living room has a great fireplace and a gorgeous stained glass window, too, which appears to be original to the home, built in 1932. The bedrooms, which are a great size, have plenty of room for a small family or two young professionals. It’d be a great home for a couple of artists, too, and you’ll find several of them in Kessler Highlands.

This is a great neighborhood because you get all of the wonderful amenities of living in Kessler Park without the crazy price tag. You’re a stone’s throw from the Kessler School, too, which is an excellent early education campus. And on the porch at 915 Stewart is a great porch swing, the perfect place to get to know your new neighbors!

But my favorite thing about this house, as you could probably tell, is the guest quarters attached to the two-car garage. It’s the perfect way to keep out-of-town guests comfortable without sacrificing your sanity! Of course, you could also use it as a home office or maybe an art studio, too.

What a neat house!
