I love writing about before-and-after transformations in Tarrant County Tuesday.
Some of the time the before photos showcase areas that were downright nasty and in need of major updating. Other times the home is simply dated or has a cacophony of styles that caused the home to sit on the market for a lengthy period of time or sell for less than asking.
And 304 Crestwood Drive is such a home. When the current owners purchased the home in 2016 it had various aspects of modern or contemporary styles along with some 1980s Miami South Beach flair. While those styles are trendy, the home sat on the market for nearly 200 days in 2016 — a year where most homes flew off the market.
A New Style?
Originally built in 2008, this five-bedroom and five-bathroom home of 4,269 square feet that is carved into the side of a hill in my favorite neighborhood, Crestwood. The smooth stucco exterior definitely leans toward the modern style.
After an extensive nearly two-year remodel project of moving walls, plumbing, and electrical, the home has a new style…I’m calling it “Fancy Warehouse.” (Actually Ron Carter who did all the remodel work coined the phrase. I borrowed it from him.)
That name perfectly identifies this home. “Fancy Warehouse” style combines modern, eclectic, industrial, and just flat out cool. Sometimes photos explain better than words.

The Cool Factor
This Fancy Warehouse is definitely a home worth seeing. The home is filled with unique materials and pieces, like a barn door from the Texas State Fair and a door to a secondary bathroom reclaimed from a law office in Chicago.
This luxurious Fancy Warehouse at 304 Crestwood Drive is listed by the power couple of Ted and Ida Duwe-Olsen of Williams Trew Real Estate for $1.65 million.
