Boat House Road

In the three years I have been writing for CandysDirt.com, I haven’t really done lakefront. Perhaps the torpor induced by the heat of another July in Texas drove me to water, in search of refreshment of the spirit. Eagle Mountain Lake, with its surrounding hills, is one of the more attractive and authentic looking man-made area lakes. It seems to get knocked about by the occasional tornado from time to time — as recently as June 19th of this year. In late May of 2011 the lakefront drive — Boat Club Road — suffered some minor damage. Built four years before, in 2007, 9931 Boat Club Road seems to have come through insolently unscathed.

The Baldridge House

When a home has its own Wikipedia entry, you know you are in for something special. Our Monday Morning Millionaire is The Baldridge House, a spectacular 1910 Georgian mansion at 5100 Crestline Road.

If only walls could talk.

Fortunately, The Baldridge House has a voice of sorts. It has been designated a Texas Historic Landmark and a City of Fort Worth Landmark. Not only has the house been beautifully preserved and updated, but the history is also intact. So, a lot is known about this Forth Worth showplace and considering my deep fondness for historical homes, I’m tickled pink to share it with you!
