Monday Morning Millionaire: People Who Live in Glass Houses Would Love This Kessler Contemporary

Published October 30, 2012 by Joanna England

This is why you should shoot a twilight photo for a listing. Gorgeous, no?

When I look at a house, I ask myself, “Self, what do you love about this house?”

Sometimes I say, “The kitchen, but I could live without the glitter toilet seat on the master commode.”

And other times I say, “What is there not to love?”

I found myself saying just that to myself after receiving a missive from a longtime reader, first-time house porn pusher telling all about 1322 Kessler Parkway. This North Oak Cliff  home is a work of art and is on the market for $1.295 million.

Marketed by David Nichols of the Matthew-Nichols Group, this Gary Cunningham-designed glass-walled treehouse is absolutely stunning. Reminds you of Cameron’s house from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, doesn’t it? Truly, this home is a temple to the contemporary. The polished concrete, the exposed steel supports, the suspension cables — it’s industrial chic!

The main house has a master suite on the home’s top-most level, with formals, a half bath, and a gorgeous kitchen on the floor below. The guest house, which is great for privacy, is a smaller version of the main house, with two bedrooms connected by a large and luxurious bathroom.

This house is earth friendly, with geo-thermal temperature control, and it’s human-friendly, with a trolley that can haul your groceries up to the house from the garage so you don’t have to.

I don’t know if I could do a better job of describing this house than the listing on the Matthews-Nichols site. But the photos are just jaw-dropping. So is the price, for that matter!
