Quail Run

Spring has sprung, and attending a Sunday open house at a treetop aerie at 5328 Quail Run is as good a way to enjoy the change of seasons as any I can think of.  The 3,013-square-foot residence sits on a nearly one-acre lot and enjoys a choice a cul de sac location on the Westside, abutting Westover Hills. The rambling, 1966 build, approached from a circular drive, has a sort of laid-back, Southern California glamor — think Laurel Canyon. Stone walls, attractive hardscape, and tile roof grace the Mediterranean contemporary with plenty of curb appeal.

Windsor Place

It’s rare when a two story on a desirable Berkley Place street comes up for sale, so when I saw a sign in front of  2224 Windsor Place, I felt compelled to write about it.

Well, on the market last week under contract this week — priced at $630,000, it sits at a market-moving sweet spot. It doesn’t hurt either, that the center of gravity in Fort Worth is shifting with new development in Edward’s Ranch, Waterside, and Clearfork, just west of its venerable Near South Side neighborhoods. The interest that this property garnered and its short duration on the market  suggest that the 2,749-square-foot house may have been underpriced even though it falls within the average $230 per square foot range for the neighborhood.
