In 1926 a stately Georgian Revival brick home was built for Fred W. Wimberly in the Fairmount neighborhood of Fort Worth. The Wimberly House at 2201 Lipscomb Street consists of 3,890 square feet, five bedrooms, three-and-one-half bathrooms and is currently on the market. The home also has original hardwood floors upstairs-and-downstairs.
Not only is this stunning red brick home, found on the corner of Lipscomb Street and Lilac Street, available, but it features a one-bedroom garage apartment as well. Known as the Wimberly House, 2201 Lipscomb Street was officially registered with the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
Dining Room Made for Turkey Day
As this is Thanksgiving Holiday Week, I wanted to highlight the large dining room of the home.
You Know I Love Front Porches
If you have followed my Tarrant County Tuesday posts over the years, you know that I love, love, love to feature inviting front porches.
This historic home is no exception. In fact, this might be the largest front porch I’ve written about. It’s so sad that today’s builders can’t or won’t build front porches that are usable and practical.
If front porches aren’t your thing, the flagstone patio between the garage and main home is perfect for gatherings and cookouts.
Detached Garage Apartment
Finally, you need to check out the one-bedroom apartment over the detached garage. In the Fairmount District there should be plenty of opportunity to utilize this space. It has a full kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom.
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.
