Ryan Place is a storied, family-friendly neighborhood three miles south of downtown Fort Worth, located in the Near Southside area.

Established in 1911, Ryan Place today is a thriving neighborhood with an annual Easter egg hunt, Fourth of July parade, back-to-school pool party, “Boo on the Boulevard” celebration, and a candlelight Christmas evening.

With close proximity to downtown and the Medical District, and a vibrant mix of house styles and sizes, Ryan Place is one of Fort Worth’s most desirable neighborhoods.

The house has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,234 square feet, with separate guest quarters in the back adding an additional 271 square feet and a second bathroom. It is listed by Cecile Montgomery at Burt Ladner Real Estate for $210,000.
