Eat, Drink, Be Merry — And Check Out Fort Worth’s Magnolia West

Magnolia West

This Magnolia West home at 157 Magnolia Lane was built by JAAVA Custom Homes, and is one of several guests can tour at a holiday event this Saturday hosted by the John Zimmerman Group.

The John Zimmerman Group has come up with a fool-proof way to get a little holiday shopping done, check out Fort Worth’s Magnolia West community, and even catch the Texas-OU Big 12 Championship this Saturday, all in the same place.

The Realtor, who is with Compass, has planned a progressive event that will allow visitors to move from home to home in Fort Worth’s new gated neighborhood adjacent to Shady Oaks Country Club and Westworth Park. The event will run Saturday, Dec. 1, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with a wine tasting at 201 Magnolia Lane at 3 p.m., hosted by Napa Valley winemaker Modus Operandi Wine.

JAAVA Custom Homes also built 201 Magnolia Lane, which will be the site of a wine tasting with Modus Operandi Wines.

Bites will be courtesy Ellerbe Fine Foods, Joe Riscky’s Barbeque, Lettuce Cook, Campisi’s, and Lonesome Dove (each home will feature a different popular Fort Worth restaurant), and holiday cocktails will also be served.

You can shop local favorites like Lola + Lina, Thrive Apothecary, Brogue Canyon, Antebellum bags and luggage, Sugar Brown’s Sweet Treats, Good Gift Delivered, and The Mercantile.

And just in case you were worried you’d have to miss the Red River Rivalry, Part Two, Zimmerman says not to fret. “We will be showing the Texas vs OU Big 12 Championship game so you won’t miss a thing,” he said.

Guests are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots to make the holiday season brighter for a child.

We’ll have more tomorrow on Magnolia West and the builders who have partnered to create it, but suffice to say, it’s some of the area’s top luxury home builders, including JAAVA Custom Homes, Village Homes, and Integrity Homes.

Magnolia West is a private, gated community of high-end custom, single-family homes starting around $700,000. Sited directly across from Shady Oaks Country Club, residents will be able to easily reach the Fort Worth Cultural District, museums, West 7th Street offerings, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment venues.

“Magnolia West speaks to a cultured life in the heart of Fort Worth’s up and coming Westworth Village,” Zimmerman said.

Homes available for touring during the event are: 153 Magnolia Lane, 157 Magnolia Lane, 201 Magnolia Lane, 221 Magnolia Lane, 301 Magnolia Lane, and 313 Magnolia Lane.
