Westworth Village is a growing enclave just outside Fort Worth, but don’t let the small-town population fool you — it’s close to some of the best amenities Fort Worth has to offer, and the private, gated Magnolia West community puts you right in the thick of everything.
Magnolia West is perched across the street from Shady Oaks Country Club, and is close to the Fort Worth Cultural District, museums, West 7th Street, restaurants, shopping, and plenty of entertainment venues.
And the community also offers some of the best luxury home builders in the area, too, crafting high-end custom, single-family homes that start in the $700,000 range on up — including JAAVA Custom Homes, Village Homes, and Integrity Homes.
And as we mentioned yesterday, if you’ve got a hankering to check out the private neighborhood, Compass’s John Zimmerman is hosting one doozy of a progressive-style open house, complete with plenty of things to nosh on, wine to taste, and yes, the Texas-OU Big 12 Championship showdown at every home you visit (more details on that here). There will also be shopping opportunities with local vendors, so bring your Christmas lists!
But wouldn’t you like a sneak peek? Because we can give you a glimpse of one of the homes on the tour — 157 Magnolia Lane, built by JAAVA Custom Homes (but trust us, you need to go see this home in person, too!).
JAAVA Custom Homes designs and builds high-quality, innovative and luxurious homes in Fort Worth, Benbrook, Aledo, and surrounding cities, and they pride themselves on partnering with artisan suppliers, as well as suppliers that can help them develop new products and innovative new building materials.
And 157 Magnolia Lane is a great example of that. The clean, white stucco exterior and standing seam metal roof speak to a commitment to quality, and the perfectly landscaped yard tells you that curb appeal was indeed a tone-setting consideration.
Inside, walls of windows bring in tons of natural light to the open kitchen, living and dining area. White oak hardwood floors traverse the first floor and into the master retreat.
The living room’s clean lines are warmed up by a fireplace and ample seating spaces. A gourmet kitchen is pretty and functional, with stainless steel appliances, double ovens, a 5-burner range, quartz counters, tile backsplash, and a multi-purpose island with more storage.
In the master suite, which was intentionally designed at the back of the home, away from the hustle and bustle, is next to the laundry room and two-car garage, and completely separate from the guest room and study that are also on the first floor.
Upstairs, two more bedrooms and full bathrooms and a second large living area with more flex space provide plenty of entertaining space for everyone.
Downstairs glass doors open to a covered patio surrounded with easy-to-care-for, low-maintenance synthetic grass. Upstairs, a large balcony with a fireplace gives you outdoor entertaining space on both levels of the home.
And the finishes throughout the home are just incredible, from the linear wrought iron railings on the stairs, to the Bedrosians tile, to the custom wrought-iron front door.
But the luxe home is also incredibly practical, with full-foam encapsulated insulation, tankless water heaters, energy-efficient windows and doors, heat pumps, programmable WiFi thermostats, and more.
The home is priced at $949,000.
Unfamiliar with Village Homes or Integrity Homes? Here’s a quick primer.
Village Homes of Fort Worth was founded in 1996 and has a reputation for building unique and inspirational homes with innovative designs and classic architecture, working closely with some of the area’s best architects, craftsmen, contractors, and vendors.
Owners K. Lindsay Stites and Alex Veigel like to say that Integrity Homes offers resort living in the Metroplex. Together, they are a formidable home construction force, with a combined 40 years of home design and building experience and have built more than 400 homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
