River Heights Home Brings The Trinity Trails To Your Front Porch

The Trinity Trails are part of the Trinity River in Fort Worth

The Trinity Trails — concrete and crushed granite paths that follow the Trinity River — are yet one more tremendous benefit to Fort Worth living.

If you have ever been to Austin and seen the vibrant gatherings of walkers, joggers, or cyclists along Town Lake, you will have a glimpse of what the Trinity Trails strive to become.

In recent year numerous shops, restaurants, outdoor venues and residential establishments have popped up throughout the Fort Worth fully taking advantage of the natural beauty of the Trinity River and trails.

(Assuming the federal government bails out one grossly over-budgeted project involving the Trinity River, in time there will be even more commerce along the Trails — but let’s get into political graft, greed, and nepotism at a later date)

One recently developed neighborhood in The River DistrictRiver Heights, takes full advantage of the Trails.

River Heights was once a garden nursery

Beautiful views of the river and easy access to the Trinity Trails make River Heights a highly desired community.

The River Heights Neighborhood

Developed by Tyler Abogast of James R. Harris Partners in 2015, River Heights has quickly become a highly desired location in which to live.  The gated community of 65 homes from Fort Worth builders Clarity Homes and Village Homes beautifully mirrors a bend in the Trinity River and allows for easy access as well as spectacular and unblemished views.

The open kitchen features glass front cabinetry, double ovens and plenty of counter space

527 Trail Rider Road

Built in 2018 by Village Homes, this two-story home of 2,842 square feet consists of four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a wonderfully open floor plan, and is only steps from a private entrance to the Trinity Trails.

The master bathroom has a closet the size of Rhode Island just past that door! Come check it out.

Designed to be used mainly as a single-story home, the first floor features a large master bedroom suite, a second bedroom — which can also be used as a private study — and an open and inviting kitchen and family room.

The large kitchen transitions to the family room with elevated, beamed ceiling and the impressive fireplace.

The focal point of the family room is the floor-to-ceiling Austin stone fireplace that anchors the room. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms and an open landing area that has unimpeded views of the Trinity River.

The modest backyard also has a generous covered patio — or you can enjoy the covered front porch of 527 Trail Rider Road.

Front Porch Neighborhood

527 Trail Rider Road shows how River Heights is a “front porch neighborhood.”

We don’t see many front porch neighborhoods anymore.  These days owners want to seclude themselves in their backyard and not be social. This is not the case in River Heights, and especially not the case with the large, covered front porch of 527 Trail Rider Road.

Don’t miss out — 527 Trail Rider Road in River Heights is one of the final homes available in the community.  The home is listed by Debby Petty of Williams Trew Real Estate for $629,000.
