Have you heard that the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is in town? Starting Jan. 13 through Feb. 4, the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth will be hustling and bustling with all sorts of stock show and rodeo activity. Rides, games, animals, contests, funnel cake, interesting smells, and so much more will be enjoyed by people of all ages.
While enjoying the festivities, make sure to take two minutes and travel less than a mile to the new listing by Martha Williams of Williams Trew Real Estate — 5016 Byers Avenue. This 3,100-square-foot home could be the perfect “city home” for those involved in events such as the stock show and rodeo.
I wear bow ties and blue suede shoes. I do have a pair of cowboy boots (somewhere) and my grandfather owned a few horses back in the day, but other than that I am not the expert when it comes to showing animals, roping barrels, or doing any of that rodeo stuff. However, I have been told from various reputable sources that many people involved in the world of stock shows and rodeos travel quite a bit and tend to have homesteads way out in the country.
It probably gets very tiring being on the road for long stretches of time and living out of a suitcase. Imagine the ideal lock-and-leave opportunity where you can store all your boots, hats, and tack in the city and not have to lug it around all the time. You can at 5016 Byers Avenue.
Of course, this zero-lot-line home of three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms is also perfect for those who don’t haul animals around all the time. Located in the heart of the Rivercrest neighborhood, a block away from Kincaid’s burgers, Lucile’s bistro, shopping on Camp Bowie Boulevard, the museums and rodeo arenas of Fort Worth, 5016 Byers Avenue is the utmost opportunity for those looking to downsize yet still be in an action-packed area of Cowtown.
What exactly is a zero-lot-line home? According to our friends at Investopia.com it is: “A zero-lot-line house is a piece of residential real estate in which the structure comes up to or very near to the edge of the property line. Rowhouses, garden homes, patio homes and townhomes are all types of properties that may be zero-lot-line homes. They may be attached (as in a townhome) or detached, single story or multistory.”
One benefit of a zero-lot-line home is that the home can have a private interior courtyard which allows for natural light and peaceful views. Such is the case at 5016 Byers Avenue.
Whether you lace up your boots, strap ‘em on, or don’t even own a pair, this home is a terrific home for those looking to downsize but yet stay in one of the finest areas of Fort Worth.
This beautiful home withe a serene courtyard at 5016 Byers Avenue is listed for $599,000 by Martha Williams of Williams Trew Real Estate. The home is currently on the market and available for immediate showings … but if your boots are dusty, please leave ’em at the door.
