I would love to color my beard Kris Kringle white and award a house to a deserving tike. Short of that, Fort Worth Friday can offer the next best thing to a Christmas gift-a 2100 square foot charmer with a choice west side location, selling below appraised value. In the heart of the Cultural District, on 1320 Madeline Place, the three-bedroom, two-bath bungalow is a true survivor, celebrating its centenary next year.
Some might find the adjacent condominium complex, stretching over two lots, a negative, but I regard it as a useful buffer to busy Camp Bowie to the south. Museums are an agreeable walk from the property. And this cutie has curb appeal in spades. Wood steps lead to a welcoming front porch varnished to a glass-like sheen.
