The West Highland neighborhood will probably leave most readers — even those familiar with Fort Worth — scratching their heads. But one glance from the second-floor balcony will immediately place you in the heart of the cultural district, with sweeping views down West 7th Street punctuated with a stunning view of downtown Fort Worth.
Located at 800 Haskell Street, this corner townhouse, with its interesting roofline, stucco exterior, and window displacement, is reminiscent of early modern masters like Otto Wagner. Built in 2007, this spacious 2,600-square-foot unit has two bedrooms, two-and-one-half baths, and everything needed for comfortable urban living.
The handsome modern townhouse stretches over three floors with a rooftop terrace. On the ground floor there is a private bedroom. The second floor is a modern, open concept, piano nobile, with a kitchen overlooking a dining area, living area terminating in a terrace with city views-perfect for al fresco dinner parties. The kitchen features high end Kitchenaid appliances, breakfast bar, granite countertops and a long, stainless steel-covered island. Floors on level two are mocha-stained oak hardwoods.
The master bedroom suite is on the third floor with delightful, above treeline views. The master bath has separate vanities, garden tub, separate shower, and a super-sized closet. In case you’re counting three flights of stairs in the minus column, all floors are also served by an elevator. The third floor also has a 10-foot by 11-foot home office.
The townhouse offers true urban living with a walkability score of 85. Two car garage parking is at the back. There is an annual association fee of $3,800, which covers electric, exterior maintenance, landscaping, management, and the sprinkler system.
