How does that great Bob Wills song go…
Surely Mr. Wills was thinking about the home for sale at 153 Crown Ridge Court in Covered Bridge Canyon of Fort Worth when he sang that song, because this home has a view to die for.
When the owner of this spacious home with spectacular views was giving me a tour of the home she said, “It all starts with a view. You won’t value the view until you have one.”
If that’s the case then this home of 4,256 square feet has a ton of value that goes beyond the list price of $779,000.
Standing on the deep, covered flagstone patio overlooking the swimming pool, spa, putting and chipping green, and waterfall, you literally can view miles and miles of Texas. Very little is better than that. Some might like the view of mountains. Some might like an ocean view. Overlooking the oak and pecan trees and open pastures of Texas … glorious!
Aside from the luxurious outdoor living and scenic views, this one-owner, custom-built home has many items within the home that make it a one-of-a-kind property.
A number of items are found in the home that have been reclaimed from all over the world that help this home stand apart from others, and yet these items are also very practical and appropriate.
The first such item you notice is the front door. It was found in an estate sale in New Orleans. When you learn about it you can totally picture this door as the opening to a long, ivy-laced corridor that would lead to an open New Orleans courtyard. The transom that was part of the original design was removed so the door could fit the space, and the transom was re-purposed to the kitchen above the pantry.
Other features include an enlarged garage for additional work space, floored attic areas for storage needs, and reinforced walls under the stairway that can serve as a tornado shelter.
If you are looking for a home that carries the spirit of a Texas Hill Country home, then look no further. From top to bottom, 153 Crown Ridge Court represents all that is great about the Lone Star State. Beautiful views, hardwood floors upstairs and downstairs, elegant beams on the ceiling, the relaxing outdoor pool and spa, and of course the chipping and putting greens. What more could anyone want? You certainly could live here ’til you died … and least the bow tied Realtor could.
153 Crown Ridge Court is presented by Katie Roberts of Virginia Cook Realtors. The home is located in Covered Bridge Canyon (yes, that’s Parker County, but it’s still Fort Worth) and feeds into the Azle Independent School District. This home is currently listed for $779,000 and available for immediate showings.
