If you know Old Fort Worth, then you know Simondale Drive. Located near Colonial Country Club and TCU, this elegant street is one of the foremost streets for elegant homes in all of Cowtown.
It’s not just proximity to so many private and privileged areas that makes Simondale Drive sought after. It’s the way the curvilinear street, lined with mature trees and distant views, embraces the homes that comprise a row of “Who’s Who” of Fort Worth hierarchy.
What’s So Great About Simondale Drive?
It is not uncommon for a home to be purchased in the high six-or-seven figures, only to be scraped and a new home worth millions replaces it. This is a street that cannot be duplicated or equaled — no matter what these hotshot suburbia developers spew.
To own a home on Simondale Drive is like owning tickets to The Masters golf tournament … difficult to obtain, rarely relinquished, coveted by many.
That knock, knock, knocking sound you hear is the sounds of opportunity at 2916 Simondale Drive. Pay close attention, because if you miss the sound, you might be waiting around for a very long time.
More Than a Home at 2916 Simondale Drive:
Built in 1954, the home at 2916 Simondale Drive is situated on just over one-half an acre … but what a property! Describing the views and expansive lower backyard is like licking a lollipop and expecting to understand what real fruit tastes like – you have to experience the original to fully grasp.
Inside the home, let’s call the style an “all-American traditional,” are four bedrooms, three-and-one-half bathrooms, and myriad other rooms — and this is the opportunity.
An Opportunity House
Does the home need updating? Of course it does. Would it be possible to return this home to its heyday and splendor? Absolutely. I call this an “opportunity house.”
If you want live on Simondale Drive it’s going to cost you. This home is listed at $1.1 million and will need a few shekels for updating. However, once the renovation has taken place, the value will be through the roof. As the great Rob Sell once told me, “They ain’t making more land in Cowtown.”
What are you waiting for? Go and check out this home and see what opportunity is there for you to be on a classic street and unbeatable location.
