Sometimes a home can be like Christmas present. You look at it and try to guess what’s inside. You shake it a bit, but still are perplexed. You quickly rip off the wrapping paper, but don’t recognize where the box came from. Finally, after fighting with all the tape sealing the box, you open it and are amazed by all the treats and gifts that you found. You never would have guessed it, but the present was more than you imagined.
Such is the case with the home located at 5024 Bryce Avenue in the Rivercrest addition of Fort Worth. I was puzzled by the exterior of the home. What was the style? It wasn’t French. It’s not Italianate. It had some Modern and International aspects to the exterior, but not completely. It was built in 1972, so I am going to call it 1970s Soft Contemporary, for lack of a better term.
