For a Fort Worth westside location, it doesn’t get any better than this.
Less than one mile to the east is River Crest Country Club. Keep heading east for less than a mile and you land in the heart of the Fort Worth Cultural District and the restaurants and shops of 7th Street. One mile to the northwest are the posh Westover neighborhoods.
At $220 per square foot, 5012 Byers Avenue looks like a bargain compared to the adjacent Rivercrest average north of $600 per.
The façade is smart, stylish, and symmetrical. Inside, a small vestibule leads you into the open-concept floor plan that’s easy to love, with a front-to-back, north/south axis. Stairs at either end lead to the second floor and its three bedrooms.
The 3,300-square-foot townhouse, built in 2002, has been completely reworked and remodeled and looks spanking new. Upgrades include energy-efficient windows, plantation shutters, and new HVAC systems. The new vertical, gray, porcelain flooring, in addition to being clean and practical, provides unity, accentuating the space’s directional flow.
The open space has the airy feel of a modern loft. The living room, with abundant built-in cabinetry, is anchored by a new gas fireplace with glass rocks. The area is illuminated by windows looking out to the cheerful, walled, atrium courtyard.
The nucleus of the first floor is the large, blue island with a built-in oven and gas cooktop in the completely renovated kitchen. Above, natural light flows from clerestory windows. Appliances are all Jenn Air, including the 42-inch-wide refrigerator/freezer. Countertops are white quartz with marble mosaic as backsplash above. Generous cabinetry is of the simple shaker type.
All three bedrooms are on the second floor with effectively two master bedrooms with ensuite baths, at either end of the floor. All three-and-one-half bathrooms have been updated and reworked. The layout of one of the master baths cleverly employs a corner for a large shower stall. Under the window, is a sexy slipper tub with an easy to maintain in-wall valve and tub filler.
Master Bath No. 2 features a newly tiled shower stall and au Courant brass hardware.
The private courtyard benefits from colorful slate hardscape and a cozy gas fireplace. The only shared wall of the townhouse is the wall to the right of chimneypiece. An alley provides access to the two-car garage, semi-finished, with climate control and epoxy coated floors. More good news? There is no HOA.
