Masterful Midcentury Modern on Hazelwood Drive Has Aged Gracefully

Hazelwood Drive

Time has been kind to this home. Built in 1960, the bold design of the 4,600-square-foot house still thrills with an intensity that hasn’t abated after nearly 60 years. In fact, time has allowed Japanese maple trees to mature and completely realize the original vision. The classic, modern Rivercrest residence blurs the boundaries of interior […]

Fort Worth Friday: New Orleans-Style Estate Offers Discreet Charm in Rivercrest

By Eric Prokesh / December 11, 2015 / 0 Comments

Defying its high profile location in prime Rivercrest, directly across from the country club golf course, 4604 Alta Drive jealously asserts and preserves her privacy by subtle screening landscape and clever inward-looking orientation on a nearly half-acre lot. In effect, the house is only glimpsed from the street — side view — the main facade […]

This home is absolutely KILLING ME. Why does it have to be so dang perfect? UGH. It’s like the seller said to themselves, “Hey, I know we’ve got this amazing midcentury modern in one of the best neighborhoods in all of Fort Worth, but let’s go ahead and put in a family room and kitchen […]
