Oh, the comforts and luxury of traditional architecture and design! Homes in this style, finished to this level, are the ones that embrace you at the end of the day. You walk through the front door of this beautiful home in Hillcrest near the Rivercrest Golf Course in Fort Worth, hang up your hat, and just exhale … Ahhhhhhhh!

Doesn’t the space feel warm and welcoming? Big props to the sellers, who have painted the walls in a perfect warm greige (It looks like Sherwin Williams’ “Popular Gray“) and let the hardwood floors, antique furniture, beautiful art in gilt frames, and delicious Persian rugs do the talking.

The entryway is flanked by the formal living room on one side and the formal dining room on the other. I’m glad that they sellers didn’t paint the wood paneling in the living room, giving it a wonderful, cozy feeling. I also adore the stone fireplace, which adds a bit of depth to the room.

On the first level of the home, you have two living areas, two dining areas, an enormous open kitchen, butler’s pantry, and a master suite. Upstairs is an additional living area, as well as two additional bedrooms. In all, this 3,350-square-foot home at 1615 Carleton has three bedrooms, three full and one half baths, and almost a quarter of an acre all of which Zimmerman has priced at $1.299 million.

In the family room, the vaulted and beamed ceiling really opens up the space, which has room enough for a breakfast area just off of the kitchen. The gigantic island, which is topped with the same granite you’ll find on the counters, features a produce sink and a small bar. Thanks to the open floor plan, all three areas enjoy the natural light that floods the rooms from the windows and French doors that lead to the serene backyard.

Of course, the warmth and ease of this property extends to the outdoors, with beautiful covered porches, a lovely pool, and a gorgeous Japanese maple that adds just the right amount of color to the landscape. The green wall, covered in leafy vines, is perfect, too!
