In spite of its lordly, posh name, 6401 Curzon Avenue is the opposite of stuffy. Welcoming in a nostalgic sort of way, the 1951 build recalls the idealized sit-com houses of the era. One can imagine Ward Cleaver clipping the tidy hedges under the front windows. Located in a quiet little corner of North Ridglea, the house is only a short walk from the neighborhood Morris E. Berney Park and conveniently 15 minutes from downtown Fort Worth. Camp Bowie shops are short blocks away.
Inside, the 3,000-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bath home appears tidy and well proportioned. Walls have been freshly painted in cool gray and the original hardwood floors are in mint condition.
It comes as a relief that the original floor plan has been left mostly intact with large room openings creating an sufficiently open feeling.
The spacious kitchen doesn’t lack for any modern conveniences with a gas cook top and ample double ovens. It overlooks an add-on suite, which includes an informal dining area and comfortable family room. The fresh, sun-drenched room has slate floors and a second wood-burning fireplace and plenty of built-in storage.
The master suite is on the ground floor. The updated master bath is kitted out with a large soaker tub, a roomy, a seamless glass shower, and double vanities.
A discreet staircase leads to the remaining two under-eave bedrooms — a child’s dream, and are connected by a Jack-and-Jill bath.
The backyard has plenty of room for expansion or an out door kitchen or pool. Additional sweeteners? How about a per square foot price $30.00 below the average for Ridglea?
