In the mid-2000s, the area of Fort Worth referred to as the Medical District went through a dramatic change. Situated south of Interstate 30, north of the Fairmount neighborhood, bordered by 8th Avenue to Rosedale Avenue, this soon became known as the Near Southside.

Fort Worth Craftsman

“Go West young man, go West.” That phrase rings true for any young man, woman, couple, or empty nester that wants a great house at an affordable price.

West, in terms of house hunting, means Fort Worth, where you can get a lot of bang for your buck, especially when you need a home under $400,000. Feast your eyes on this flawless Fort Worth Craftsman at 1912 Alston Avenue in the Bellevue Hill Addition of the Fairmount neighborhood. The two-story, fully restored home has a historic designation and is smack in the middle of the hottest up-and-coming neighborhood in Fort Worth. (more…)

For those of you not familiar with the Fairmount Southside National Historic District, it is a one square mile area that was platted in the late 1800s, located south of I-30 and near the majority of hospitals in Fort Worth, and of course the greatest local restaurant street in Cowtown — Magnolia Avenue.
