Cozy — have you ever really thought of that word? It sounds funny. It looks funny. And what does it really mean? Isn’t something that is cozy all based on personal preference? To some “cozy” could be a large cabin in the woods with snow falling and a fire roaring.  To others”cozy” could mean an ocean view condominium with a glass of bubbly.

For me,”cozy” always reminds me of the holidays.  A time with friends and family, and that good feeling you get when you’re comfortable and happy.

The home located at 3508 Dorothy Lane North gives off that cozy feeling.  Certainly, other adjectives can be used for this three-bedroom, three-bathroom, single-story home of 2,502 square feet … but I like cozy.

Not a huge kitchen but plenty of space

Access the kitchen from 3 different paths – access to dining, family room and utility room. Notice the full sized freezer and refrigerator (families like that)

Located in the heart of the Monticello neighborhood (if you don’t know about it, come and check it out) in Fort Worth, just minutes from shops, restaurants, downtown, and facing Monticello Park, this home has that je ne sais quoi feeling that makes you want to stay.

Built in 1942, the home originally was a two-bedroom, two-bathroom home. In subsequent years the home grew a master suite and family room to make it very inviting and practical for families of all ages and sizes.

3508 Dorothy Lane North Faces Monticello Park

Monticello Park is going through a $200,000 renovation which should be completed by early 2018.  Once completed, the park will feature new swing sets, climbing areas, places to rest, as well as the existing tennis courts and open areas.  Weekends are always a great time to be at the park with practices or fly fishing lessons or dogs fetching Frisbees.

This is a man's dream "closet"...or at least mine

Another hidden gem of this home – The Wall of Storage in the master bedroom. Also a walk-in closet in master bathroom

If you’re looking for stale and “McMansion,” then keep on looking — this is not the home for you.  If you are looking for a beautiful home that oozes a cozy, warm and family-friendly feel, there’s no place like this home!

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.

Water feature also adds nice touch to this cozy back yard

The  backyard isn’t huge but inviting and private with large Magnolia trees. If you want play space, Monticello Park is across the street!
