Your Own Personal Resort Home — This Dallas Stunner is Both Secluded and Close to Downtown

1123 Kensington Lane Stands Out for More Than its Hillside Perch

BY // 10.17.19

A stunning mid-century home perched on a pristine hilltop in Dallas has just the hit market. The sprawling homestead at 1123 Kensington Lane offers the best of both worlds in many ways. Secluded by lush mature landscaping but within 10 minutes of Downtown Dallas, this home is the rare private oasis with easy access to the big city.

The 6,029-square-foot Kessler Park home looks over the impossibly green Stevens Park Golf Course and is on the market for $2,099,000 million.

Every aspect of this custom built home was done with care and precision, from the hand-stacked stone exterior, to the stylish standing seam metal roof down to the Ann Sacks tiling in the kitchen and baths and sculpture garden spread out across the sweeping yard.

The five-bedroom home with five full bathrooms and two half baths brings luxury to everyday living thanks to expert craftsmanship. The Symmetry-Aaron Angle collaboration doesn’t even seem like something that could be found in Dallas. Instead, it seems to come from somewhere far more remote and intimate.

“You don’t feel like you’re in Dallas. It doesn’t feel like anything you can find in Dallas. It feels like you’re in a Four Seasons resort at this house,” listing agent Amy Detwiler says.

The most striking element of 1123 Kensington Lane is the seamless fusion of indoor-outdoor living.

Inside, the open, airy floor plan is incredibly fluid, flooded with light from the sky-high windows. Glass window walls promise great views from every angle.  The spacious living, dining and kitchen areas all boast amazing views of the pool and the immaculate outdoors.

“It feels like you’re in a treehouse upstairs, with the balcony overlooking the pool,” Detwiler notes.

The yard boasts extraordinary topography thanks to its varied elevation.

“There are multiple outdoor living areas with water features, not just the pool. There’s separate outdoor living with fireplaces and sculpture gardens. It’s really exceptional,” Detwiler says. “But it still offers a lot of privacy.”

The outdoors are great at 1123 Kensington from the Viking grill to the terraced outdoor dining off the kitchen and the outdoor lounge overlooking the picturesque golf course.

After a dip in the sparkling pool and spa, you can rinse off in your own outdoor shower, in the height of relaxation.

Large grassy areas are perfect to set up parties and entertainment, while the boundless options for casual seating make it an everyday bonus. Imagine your own nature retreat right outside your back doors.

The expansive master suite sits on the first floor, while the four en-suite guest rooms are spread across the upstairs. Additional perks include a media room, perfect for movie night, a game room with space for a pool table and a study, which looks out over the gorgeous landscaping and gives a real command center feeling.

At 1123 Kensington, you’re the master of your own resort world.
