Established in 1911, Ryan Place today is a thriving neighborhood with an annual Easter egg hunt, Fourth of July parade, back-to-school pool party, “Boo on the Boulevard” celebration, and a candlelight Christmas evening.
With close proximity to downtown and the Medical District, and a vibrant mix of house styles and sizes, Ryan Place is one of Fort Worth’s most desirable neighborhoods.
Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is a marvelous example of the kind of historic beauties located in the area. The Ryan Place cottage at 3028 6th Ave. was built in 1946, and has darling curb appeal, with colorful, mature landscaping and a charmingly maintained exterior.
The house has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,234 square feet, with separate guest quarters in the back adding an additional 271 square feet and a second bathroom. It is listed by Cecile Montgomery at Burt Ladner Real Estate for $210,000.
That light blue front door opens directly into the living room, which measures 21-by-13, and the house’s exterior color palette extends inside—look at that lovely room, with the blue-and-white rug, warm gray paint, neutral furniture, and crisp white accents, like the mantel on the wood-burning fireplace.
Three large windows fill the area with natural light and it reflects off the hardwood floors, which extend throughout most of the house, as do the decorative crown moldings.
A large doorway leads to the dining room, measuring 13-by-11 and looking inviting with its clean lines and large window with light blue curtains. The chandelier is simple and elegant.
The galley kitchen feels larger than its 13-by-9 size because half of the wall leading to the dining room has been removed. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove, and black granite countertops. The pantry looks small, but there are lot of cabinets to compensate.
Both bedrooms feel clean and bright, although the massive four-poster bed dwarfs the master bedroom. But, at least we know the space accommodates a a king-sized bed.
The master has its own picket-fence patio looking onto the front lawn.
The one bathroom in the main house is super cute—I love the sink and window covering. With those elements and the light-blue paint, the bathroom has a charming cottage that matches the entire house.
The back patio is really quite a sight to behold, with the claw-foot bathtub/outdoor shower taking center stage on the wood deck. With those strings of lights and the table, I can easily image an evening soirée out there.
The separate guest quarters offer an additional 271 square feet and a second bathroom to the property, and could be used as a home office, craft space, or teenager headquarters.
The ample backyard is fully fenced, and has a sprinkler system, as well as a fenced-off garden beds to keep rabbits and other critters out.
