This Brookhollow Estates home makes me think I should have born in the decade it was built — 1954, not the decade it was renovated — 1983. This sprawling stucco home has a unique floorplan set on more than two acres of creek lot. A cedar-covered porte cochere separates the three-bedroom main house from the two-bedroom guest house that’s not even included in the total square footage listed here. A search of MLS shows this is the first time it’s been on the market, so it’s likely a one-owner home. And to think I just missed it; it went under active option contract on May 30.

This 2005-built home was designed by Richard Wintersole, an Aledo architect whose work has been on the cover of Dwell and frequently showcased on the AIA Fort Worth Homes Tour. The standout feature is surely the barrel vaulted ceiling in the great room, but you’ll find audacious contemporary design throughout this home that’s appraised for $1.1 million. The listing says it’s sold as is because it needs some work, but if the design speaks to you, this is a steal.

Have you ever seen the back of a home that’s more stunning than the front? Now you have. Located in 24-hour guard gated Fox Glen across the greenbelt from Las Colinas Country Club, this 1980-built home was originally a two-story Tudor and about half the square footage it is today, MLS shows. Now it’s a stone and stucco transitional three-story with a basement wine cellar, game room, and exercise room.
