Dallas Estate Rental Photos and Description
Main residence available after October 1, 2014 for stays.
Available for full rental after October 1, 2014. The historic two-acre property is carved into a north facing hill in beautiful Kessler Park. With its spanish architectural features, the site offers a very wide range of opportunities for events up to our comfort level of about 150 in head count. See listing 482129 for guests who seek only a relaxing getaway.. or some combination of both hotel and venue: In addition to our own gatheings and entertaing in the last two decades... we have now hosted a wide array of gatherings from small receptions, a handful of weddings, approved parties and a long and varied list of social occasions. In addition, we have the perfect spaces for executive retreats, off-site meetings as an escape from the very convenient downtown convention center... we also accept long term rentals mostly in association with some of DFW's largest employers relocating executives to the DFW area.
The main residence is roughly 4600sf and normally only the downstairs areas are open for rental.... by contrast the 2200sf event pavilion(vrbo listing #482129) was very much built for the sole purpose of entertaining large numbers or guests.. it can flex very easily with its open plan format... the guest house has received outstanding reviews from travelers and those that have held eventson-site while staying as a guest. The property in total is a breathtaking salute to the roaring 20s in Dallas, garden design and people who love outdoor living and entertaining at the highest level. Designed and built in the early 20s, most of the garden's long list of features have been painstakingly restored or enhanced. The topography of the Kessler Park area is the most unique in all of Dallas...

What makes this estate unique
This property is a place AWAY from the world five feet outside the front fence. It is not about being connected, flash, bling or putting on the show... quite the contrary.. if you understand patina and what being understated means.. then you will feel at home in my home. Some of the property's limitations are very intentional.. the intent here was to restore, not remodel... we are caretakers of a time and way of life lost for most forever.. not here.. we work to keep it as original as possible.. it has taken 14 years to just sort of return to where it was in 1922... and i suspicion 14 more to make it what i hope it will be for the next 100 years.
