There’s something about living in a university town.  While there is much more to Fort Worth than Texas Christian University, the city benefits greatly from having a beautiful campus smack-dab in the middle of town.

If you’ve never been to the TCU campus, you certainly need to check it out.  While they might have overdone the blonde brick all over the place, the campus is spacious, filled with mature trees, and fits nicely within the surrounding residential neighborhoods.

University Place

One such neighborhood is found just northeast of campus is fittingly named University Place.  The streets of University Place are filled with mature trees that create a canopy of shade, sidewalks and beautiful period-style homes of the 1920s and 1930s.

With an adult beverage of course!

The front and side covered porch is the perfect place to spend a summer evening.

The home at 2718 Cockrell Avenue is located only a few blocks from the north boundary of the TCU campus near the College of Fine Arts.

This bungalow built in 1926 has an extraordinary front porch that is deep and wraps two sides of the home.  It is the perfect spot to relax and listen to the bells of the nearby churches and enjoy the day … with an adult beverage of course.
