During the holiday season, it may have escaped notice that a choice townhouse in one of Fort Worth’s most enduringly popular developments has come on the market.
Shady Oaks Townhouses, tucked behind walls, shaded by large live oaks, and backing up to the golf course of the same name, were constructed in 1970. They were designed by architect Albert S. Komatsu, whose varied portfolio of work includes the emblematic entrance to the Japanese Gardens and the notorious Stonegate Mansion built for Cullen Davis. The architecture firm founded in 1959 continues to this day.It is an old axiom that good design has lasting appeal, still, it is difficult to believe that this fresh-looking, modern project is almost 50 years old. At 4,759 square feet, the three-bedroom, four-and-one-half-bath townhouse at 600 Roaring Springs Road, is also the largest unit in the complex.
