If you’re looking for a small-town feel with reasonable access to the Metroplex, head north — and then north a little more — and be sure to tap the breaks when you see the sign that says, “Welcome to Providence Village.”

It’s a bikes-on-the-lawn community where the residents did the heavy lifting to become a town. They pulled together and made it happen in 2010, and your key takeaway from this endeavor? Men and women who care enough about their community and come together to make it better.

It was built long before the Millennials were born, but this Colonial-esque ranch home near downtown Fort Worth has all the updates and offers a prime space for entertaining.

This Tuesday Two Hundred selection is a 1,905-square-foot property at 6304 Whitman Ave., Fort Worth. It features an in-ground pool, a covered, open back patio, and a built-in bar for serving thirsty guests.

“What’s really unique about this house is that it’s updated, and not many of the other properties in this area have that to offer,” said Realtor Nikki Skalsky of Keller Williams Realty Arlington. “It’s a good house for having parties.”

Remember the movie Father of The Bride? Whether you saw the original Spencer Tracy version or the Steve Martin remake, one thing has remained constant — the look of that iconic house. The white, two-story colonial with green shutters is the quintessential all-American family home.

So when we saw 3628 Mockingbird Lane  pop up in new listings, we did a double take, and then a little research. Sure enough, it could be the stunt double for either of the original movie locations.

In fact, it just went pending — so be glad you live in Dallas and still have a shot at owning this Mockingbird Lane colonial with star power potential. (more…)
