Another gem in Monticello Park has hit the market. This recently finished four-bedroom, four-bath home is a rare find indeed.  Plus, it’s a relative bargain in today’s’ East Dallas market. It commands a 60-foot-wide lot — about 10 feet wider than typical lots in this part of town.

“It’s a super cool house that conserves energy and provides a very flexible floor plan with luxury amenities,” Allie Beth Allman & Associates agent Gia Marshello said.

The home is the latest masterpiece from Jeff Dworkin’s JLD Custom Homes. It sits across the street from three other JLD homes, with construction set to start on another one soon.

“We’re very select in the neighborhoods that we build in and very selective about the properties that we go after,” Dworkin said. “We try to make a little community of our own when we can.”

Like all JLD Custom Homes, this one is Energy Star rated and certified green built. According to Dworkin, homeowners in similar houses have reported electricity bills lower than their water bills.

Let’s face it, we all want to be in the front of the line don’t we? We want to be first to watch batting practice, get the best seat in the theater, or buy the hot new gadget.  Who wants to go to a concert and sit in the back, or be the last row in an airplane?  No thank you.

As the Fourth of July approaches, it’s time to start thinking of where you’re going to be for the annual neighborhood parade.  Of course, you want to be in front.

Front-Row Seating

If you lived at 3828 Monticello Drive in Fort Worth all you would need to do to be in the front row of the annual Monticello neighborhood Fourth of July parade would be to open your door and walk to the curb!

This beautiful French-inspired home is in the heart of the Monticello neighborhood, minutes from parks, shops, stores, restaurants, and downtown Fort Worth.

Home has cozy look and feel inside and outside

Cozy — have you ever really thought of that word? It sounds funny. It looks funny. And what does it really mean? Isn’t something that is cozy all based on personal preference? To some “cozy” could be a large cabin in the woods with snow falling and a fire roaring.  To others”cozy” could mean an ocean view condominium with a glass of bubbly.
