The starting bid for a prominent Kessler Park mansion in a July 7 Dallas County foreclosure auction is $560,000.

The house at 1704 W. Colorado was built in 1925. It has two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and 4,301 square feet of space on about three-quarters of an acre.

The home, adjacent to the Stevens Park Golf Course, is notable for its elaborate tiered gardens.

In the past couple of years, the homeowners have offered the house and gardens for weddings and events, which miffed some neighbors who were inconvenienced by valet parking.

We hear the interior needs work, but if you’ve got about $600,000 or more in cash, this unique and prominent home could be yours (or mine, if you buy it for me).

    I remember the place from the 60’s and 70’s. I believe the owner was an orchestra director and a couple generations of his family lived there. A beautiful setting no doubt, sorry for those that lost it and for their broken dream.

    I lived in Oak Cliff for 25 yrs. and passed that place all the time. $560,000 buys that?? Here in Hawaii, it buys MY house. A three bedroom, cinderblock, no heat, no ac, standard tract home..Maybe I need to sell and move back….;-)

    Gorgeous grounds. I hope the news owners keep them up.

    Very confused!?! They seem to have spent $600K a year on the lawn (ahem, grounds) alone.
