There’s something about living in a university town.  While there is much more to Fort Worth than Texas Christian University, the city benefits greatly from having a beautiful campus smack-dab in the middle of town.

Kitchen of 2718 Cockrell Avenue features double ovens, open feel and lots of counter space

If you’ve never been to the TCU campus, you certainly need to check it out.  While they might have overdone the blonde brick all over the place, the campus is spacious, filled with mature trees, and fits nicely within the surrounding residential neighborhoods.

A home of former United States Congressman and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Jim Wright, has recently become available for sale in the Overton Woods neighborhood of Fort Worth.

The Overton Woods Neighborhood is a highly desirable neighborhood tucked between the Trinity River and Riverhills.  The area is filled with many large trees that not only cover yards, but streets as well.  Homes in Overton Woods date from the 1980s to present day.  The area is  minutes from TCU, the Trinity Trails, and downtown Fort Worth.
