When it’s 100-plus degrees outside in Fort Worth, what do people want to do?  LEAVE! There are times when Cowtown seems like an utter ghost town during the summer months.

It’s not a shock that people want to vacation in the mountains or on the coasts during these sweltering times, and it’s also not a shock that the lock-and-leave concept is now more popular than ever with emptynesters.

When I think of a garden home in my mind, I see a small house on a tiny piece of land that seems too cramped.  What do you think of? How about a nearly 3,500-square-foot home with four bedrooms, tall ceilings, plenty of natural light and only a few steps from a Fort Worth-famous golf course?
