Planted at the gateway to downtown Fort Worth , a mere stone’s throw from the Trinity River, Fort Worth’s landmark Courthouse, and Freeway access to DFW Airport, stands the in-town condominium at 644 East Bluff Street, occupying an unexpectedly tranquil, in city corner.Symmetrical wings framing the lean vertical entrance bay establish a strong façade. Though built in 2006, the 2462 square foot, 3 bedroom 3 1/2 bath condominium feels brand new owing to owner upkeep and upgrades. Filling the ground floor, to the left of the slate entrance, is a stand alone bedroom suite with a full bath and walk in closet-perfect for an entirely private guest bedroom or isolated home office. Access to the two car garage is off the front hall.
Stairs on the right lead to an ample, airy, loft like open living area and kitchen. Corner placement means only one shared wall and striking windows on three sides filling the space with abundant light. Ebony hardwood floors throughout, an upgrade by the current owner, add richness consistent with the modern ambience.
Open to the living area, but screened by piers which frame the bar, lies the kitchen offering the requisite stainless appliances including a French door fridge with 2 freezer drawers. Glitzy glass tile and black granite complete the decor. Doors opposite conceal a laundry closet large enough for full size components.
The third floor houses the two remaining bedrooms. The generous master easily accommodates a king size bed and a pair of nightstands. The substantial three piece master bath with twin sinks is finished in rich mocha marble surfaces. A smaller second bedroom with its own bath now operates as a home office.
A central double height stairway with clerestory windows leads to the roof-top deck. Again the benefits of being the lucky corner-sweeping, 270º views of the Fort Worth skyline and a private strip of roof-top to oneself.
