Fort Worth Friday: Leave the Sofa Behind, This Home is so Gorgeous I’d Just Sit on The Floor

A lot of times I fall in love with the home thanks to the context that furniture of the appropriate size and style provides. And then there are homes that are like Elvis, Barbara Streisand, or Mick Jagger: They need no introduction or context for you to fall in love with their style.

This is one of the latter, with gorgeous hardwood floors, painted exposed beam ceilings, and the sharp-pitched forms of a classic Tudor. It feels comfortable yet grand, timeless without being untouchable. Built in 2008, it has all the modern amenities you want, and yet it has the look and feel of a century-old Abbey and the quality construction to last just as long.

It’s in Fort Worth’s sought-after Riverhills neighborhood on a quiet cul-de-sac among homes of a similar caliber. It shows of just the kind of variety of architecture and style you can find in some of the very classy neighborhoods on the outskirts of southwest Fort Worth. Jump to see more!

Look at those floors! See what I mean? They are both rustic feeling and yet still elegant. That’s a great way to describe the rest of this listing at 3616 Middlewood Dr., represented by Ebby Halliday Realtors Susan and Thomas McCrory. It has four bedrooms, three full and one half baths, two fireplaces, a two-car garage, and more than 5,700 square feet on a .47 acre lot. I love these beautiful chandeliers in the dining room and kitchen, and the living room is spacious yet intimate, with a lovely stone fireplace.

The master suite is huge at 21 x 18, and it is absolutely fabulous. It’s on the first floor and has a gorgeous vaulted ceiling. I can imagine a lazy Saturday morning in this room easily. The master bath has even more of that classic shape and form that you see in the rest of the home, with neutral fixtures and a spacious vanity with tons of storage.

The home, which frames a courtyard, has a wonderful feel for something that is just 7 years old. It’s priced at $1.68 million and worth every dime. What do you think?
