3860 Bellaire Front

There is a treasure trove of untouched Midcentury Modern homes on Fort Worth’s west side, and this one happens to be an incredible architect-designed time capsule on one of Fort Worth’s most sought-after streets, Bellaire Circle.

Truly, this home is an amazing specimen of what was contemporary design back in 1951. The former owner commissioned architect Samuel G. Wiener Sr., an internationally known architect from Louisiana, to design this beauty, and it has many of the hallmarks of what would become classified as Midcentury Modern design. The rooms are spacious and open, geometrically shaped with huge floor-to-ceiling windows. Terrazzo floors span many of the common areas, and brick dividers and tall fireplaces act as accents. The ceiling sports tongue-in-groove slatting along the length of the rooms, which adds depth and the optical illusion of a much larger space. Let’s take a look inside!

There are not enough exclamation points in the world for this home. Seriously, this is one of those listings where I am just gushing all over the place. I spotted it on a random Realtor’s Facebook page, and I knew that I had to feature this listing. At first glance, I was overwhelmed by the photos, which really pick out all of the fantastic details and upgrades that these sellers have put in. I was like this:

I have a confession to make: If this house were a person, it would have to take a restraining order out on me. That’s how hard I’ve been stalking this beauty, waiting patiently for Virginia Cook Realtor Ed Murchison to put this gorgeous midcentury modern home at 10845 Eden Roc on MLS. And now it’s here, and you, too, can bask in the fantastic original details inside this two-story home that takes full advantage of its sloping lot in Sylvania Dells, a Lake Highlands neighborhood that has tons of architecturally interesting mid-mods. It’s priced at  $475,000.

There are so many cool details to this property, many of which are original to the home. It is definitely one of those houses that will impress a midcentury modern enthusiast.

This house is pretty much the sexiest. From the first time I saw this beautifully redone midcentury modern in Lakeland Hills, I was in love. Just positively smitten. It’s totally remodeled with everything you want including a brand new kitchen and it’s inside Richardson ISD.

And did I mention that it’s sexy? Because it totally is!

6202 Monticello Front

I was getting really, really, terribly bored looking for a home to feature today. First I thought “Let’s see if there’s something fun in Frisco,” but everything just looked the same to me today. Then I looked at homes in McKinney, only to have the same thing happen. After looking and looking and looking and almost at the very edge of being put to sleep by home searching, I stumbled upon a home that was so unique, so fun, so vibrant, it woke me up faster than my grande vanilla latte with an extra shot!

Truly, this Lakewood Heights Midcentury Modern may look like a yawnfest from the curb, but boy, you’re in for a treat after the jump!
