This home in the Fort Worth culture center has quite a few “wish list” features – most importantly, a price tag you can actually work with, especially as those holiday gift bills stack up on your granite counter top.

Selling point No. 1 – It has a cool address. It’s not exactly Madison Avenue, but it is Mattison Avenue, and, hey, that’s close enough, right?

Selling point No. 2 – Four bedrooms for $4,000? You can’t beat that.

5320 Quail Run A

When I was a kid, I really wanted a treehouse. I dreamed of a hidden place in the treetops where I could read books and draw, away from my worries. I badgered and begged to no avail, and to this day, treehouses are objects of fascination for me.

Today’s Fort Worth Friday satisfies that part of me wants a grown-up treehouse. The house a 5320 Quail Run Street is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in west Fort Worth near River Crest Country Club. With two decks, high ceilings, and oversized windows looking onto nearly one acre of trees, bushes, and a creek, it feels like a secluded spot away from the busy world.

This two-story beauty is certainly more sophisticated than any treehouse, however. It was built in 1961 and has three bedrooms and 2.5 baths in 3,515 square feet. Stone and natural materials are incorporated into the contemporary design in a truly unusual way, and the lush landscaping and shady walkways make the property a haven. It is listed by Joan Trew at WilliamsTrew for $749,900.
