Shining a Light on CandleRidge Home

With mature neighborhoods come mature trees

One of my goals for Tarrant County Tuesday is to introduce new areas of Fort Worth to our readers.  While it’s fun to see large and expensive homes, not everyone can or wants to afford a home that sometimes comes with that type of dwelling.

It brings me great joy to showcase neighborhoods of Cowtown that have quality homes at affordable prices and values.

CandleRidge homes were built in the late 1970s

The large kitchen has oak counters, Saltillo tile floors, and  subway tile backsplash

CandleRidge Neighborhood

One such neighborhood of value is found south of Interstate 20 named CandleRidge.  This neighborhood sprouted in the mid-to-late ’70s as a planned community that would, “encompass all the good things in life that thoughtful planning could provide.”

Over 30 custom builders built homes in the neighborhood which were originally priced from $40,000 to over $100,000 in over 14 phases according to a 1978 plat map of CandleRidge.

The neighborhood features a four-and-a-half-acre lake as well as four and a half miles of linear parks and greenbelts.  Because of its easy accessibility and spacious homesites, CandleRidge has steadily increased in value over the years.

4517 Francisco Court

One of the original homes when CandleRidge was being developed in 1978 is found at 4517 Francisco Court.

Master bathroom includes double vanities, granite counters and walk-in shower

This single-story home with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms is perfectly located near CandleRidge Park and on a quiet cul-de-sac. With 2,630 square feet of space this home is perfect for families of all ages and sizes.

The first things you notice as you approach the home are the mature oak and magnolia trees in the front lawn. Sometimes older homes do have advantages over newly constructed homes with sprigs instead of trees.

Flowing Floorplan

Upon entering you will find that the floorplan flows much like many new home plans.  The family room accesses the open kitchen as well as a formal dining area.  There is even an area that is perfect for a small home office or comfy reading chairs.

The kitchen features updated wooden countertops, traditional subway tile on the backsplash, and Saltillo tile on the floors. Between the kitchen and the swing-in garage is a bonus room that is perfect for a workout space.

Cul-de-sac homesite allows for spacious back yard and plenty of privacy at 4517 Francisco Court

Being on a cul-de-sac allows for plenty of yard space in the back.  Once again, mature trees are found along with a flagstone patio for cool autumn nights — if we ever get one again.

Now you know about CandleRidge and great home available in the neighborhood — 4517 Francisco Court — which is listed by Ashton Theiss of Rogers Healy & Associates for $275,000 and is currently on the market.

Well that’s all from Tarrant County this week, Dirty Readers. Remember, if you have comments, questions, or ideas for future stories – I’m always here to listen!  Bring it.
