Kelsey SquareWhy do homeowners like living in Kelsey Square?

Kelsey Square is a beautiful neighborhood of 59 single family custom homes situated on large lots with mature landscaping. The neighborhood has the space and feel of neighborhoods generally found outside major cities, yet Kelsey Square is in the heart of Dallas. Mornings, evenings, weekends and holidays find kids of all ages on bikes, power walkers, and runners, taking advantage of the mile course that is formed by the neighborhood streets. Epping Lane and Woodford Drive are one continuous street that forms a square. Epping Lane forms two sides of the square and Woodford Drive forms the other two sides of the square. Kelsey Square has 3 cul-de-sacs. The northwest corner of Epping Lane forms a cul-de-sac, with three homes facing an island of green grass. Two of the 4 streets that lead into the neighborhood, Kelsey Road and Dorset Drive, also form cul-de-sacs at the west end of both streets. Located just over 9 miles from Downtown Dallas, 5 miles from North Park Center, 4 miles from the Dallas Galleria, 6 miles from Love Field Airport and 18 miles from DFW International Airport, this neighborhood is a dream for commuters. Residents have four routes to take to DFW! There is easy access to I-35, I-635, I-75, Preston Road, Inwood Road and Midway Road.
