Encanto Drive

I can’t think of a more apposite address for the captivating, architect build than Encanto Drive. Embedded in a near full-acre lot in Westcliff West, 3701 Encanto Drive presents a discreet modern face to the street. Built in the year 2000 by the firm Shwarz-Hanson, the apparently modern composition employs a pared-down classical vocabulary. Two near symmetrical wings flank a receding central block with a-barrel vaulted colonnade thrusting forward to welcome the visitor.

A rare opportunity in the fully occupied Omni Residences in the heart of downtown Fort Worth has just come to market — and it’s a stunner. A penthouse, No. 3203 on the 32nd floor, has a lavish, 4,330 square feet of living space, four bedrooms, four and one half baths, and three balconies. And then there is the building itself, unequaled in Fort Worth for its sleek, unique profile, and five-star amenities.

And who would you enlist to move a premiere, multi-million dollar property in the Omni? You might, reflexively, turn to the building’s former Sales Director, Allison Hayden, who earned her high-rise chops selling in the luxury Dallas building, The Azure, before moving to The Omni Residences in Fort Worth in 2009. Currently she is working her special brand of agent magic at Lakeside Terrace in Flower Mound, where she has already sold 70 percent of the building. Oh, and did I mention that construction on the building isn’t even completed? (more…)

Lakeside Tower

Two weeks ago we took you to the extreme west of Tarrant County, to the rich ranch lands of Aledo. So what lies in the easternmost corner of Tarrant County? Parts of Flower Mound. Residents of Dallas and Fort Worth may have a fuzzy impression of Flower Mound, perhaps recalling the area as horse country with huge gated mansions. Forbes ranks the community as the third wealthiest community in North Texas, with higher per capita household incomes than Highland Park. No wonder, then, that the luxurious new vertical homes at Lakeside Tower on Lake Grapevine are selling quickly even before one spade of dirt has been turned. (more…)

2402 Omni Residences

Just hitting the resale market is a coveted corner patch of urban sky on the 24th floor of Fort Worth’s premiere, sold out Omni Residences at 1301 Throckmorton Street. At 1,645 square feet, No. 2402 is hardly compact. Dramatic 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows frame the Fort Worth cityscape to the south and add to the illusion of infinite space. From the eastern front, on a cool, clear day, vistas beginning with the extensive rail and freeway networks feeding the city, can extend all the way to Dallas. (more…)
