In the mid-2000s, the area of Fort Worth referred to as the Medical District went through a dramatic change. Situated south of Interstate 30, north of the Fairmount neighborhood, bordered by 8th Avenue to Rosedale Avenue, this soon became known as the Near Southside.
At the time there were medical offices, hospitals, and a smattering of other businesses … not many restaurants, nightlife, and certainly not any urban housing options.
Near Southside Renaissance
Now, 10 to 15 years after the Near Southside Renaissance began, this area continues to feature the medical community, but also boasts the absolute best local restaurant road in Fort Worth (Magnolia Avenue) as well many urban housing options.
In 2006, the local Fort Worth builder Village Homes was tasked with building the first urban townhome development in the Near Southside. With incentives from the developer, Village Homes built 17 three-story stucco townhomes with rooftop terraces that kick-started urban living in the Near Southside.
One of the original 17 townhomes is now available for sale — 912 Mangolia Green Drive, in the area aptly deemed Magnolia Green, is a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom urban townhome of 2,071 square feet. This super-hip, urban-chic townhome features a two-car garage (with bonus storage) and secondary bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.
The second floor is the main living area and features a stylish kitchen, eating area, and living area. Hardwood floors cover this level, there is a half-bathroom for guests, and a ventless fireplace for those cool evenings.
The third floor is the ultimate master suite. Not only is there a large master bedroom, but also a space that is perfect for a home office or sitting area.
The master bathroom is a thing of beauty. There is plenty of storage space, a deep soaking tub, walk-in shower, and the master closet features California Closest designs.
The Icing on the Townhome Cake
Finally, do not miss the iron spiral staircase that leads to a large open-air rooftop terrace that allows for amazing views of the growing Fort Worth skyline, the Magnolia Green Park concert area, and all the fantastic restaurants on Magnolia Avenue.
Check out the view you can enjoy from the rooftop of 912 Magnolia Green Drive. Just imagine how it is watching Fourth of July fireworks from this vantage point.
