While Valentines are pink and red, can you guess what the most pleasing color to paint the exterior of a home might be?

White?  No.  Gray?  Nope.  Blue?  Nein mein freund.

Studies show that homes painted a warm shade of yellow are the most pleasing, and report that yellow homes sell quicker than others. It’s true, and we can tell that you’re already falling in love with this adorable yellow home in Fort Worth. Of course, you should always trust a bow tie-wearing Realtor!

Benefits of Yellow Homes

Not only do yellow homes give people the warm and fuzzies, they offer a plethora of perks.

How are you with directions?  If you didn’t have your GPS system on your phone would you be able to find an unfamiliar location?

Yellow homes are very pleasing

Usable front porches are rarely found with newer homes — not so at 1800 Lipscomb Avenue in Fort Worth.

If you’re like me, you are terrible with names of streets and directions.  I can memorize stats of random college and NBA players from the 1980s but can’t remember names of streets where I’ve lived in the past.

For those of us who are “directionally challenged” one of the best ways to overcome that is to identify markers.  You know: “Go to that store we bought those shoes and turn right so you are heading in the direction of that restaurant where the cockroach was in the salad.”

Benefit of being a new home — the open, large kitchen.

With a yellow home you will never have to give your location or address again.  Simply say, “turn on Lipscomb and we’re the yellow home on the corner!”  Presto!

1800 Lipscomb Avenue

Now I’m really going to blow your mind.  The home at 1800 Lipscomb Avenue — the yellow house on the corner near the historic Fairmount neighborhood — is less than a decade old!

I wouldn’t have believed it myself.

All this home needs is an American flag, kids throwing the ball, and an apple pie.

It’s true. This beautiful Craftsman-style home with an inviting front porch and oozing with charm and character was created in 2010.  It even has a white picket fence as the cherry on top of the nostalgic sundae.

The family room of 1800 Lipscomb Avenue is open and bright.

Featuring 1,422 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the home has the look and feel of a 1920s-era home yet all the advantages of newer construction: energy efficiency, open floor plan, materials created in this century.

The adorable yellow house on the corner at 1800 Lipscomb is listed by Susanna Gorski Bartolomei of Williams Trew Real Estate.  The home is listed for $349,000 so come and check it out!
