With a name like Hidden Road it better be selective!

Hidden Road in the Rivercrest neighborhood of Fort Worth is a street that needs explaining.

In the Fort Worth high-end luxury market there is a difference between exclusive and… (ahem)… EXCLUSIVE.

It’s one thing for a large home to be in a gated community and have plenty of nice amenities and features and cost a king’s ransom.

It’s another thing for a home to be located on a street whose name alone comes with an understanding of luxury, exclusivity, and being one of a kind.  In Fort Worth, one of those streets is Hidden Road.

Mansion? It's a castle

I’d say 10,000 feet of living on 2 acres would constitute a lovely mansion! (photos: Concierge Auctions)

What constitutes a house being called a “mansion?”

There isn’t an exact definition, but according to our friends in the web, a mansion is a large home over 8,000 square feet that has features that you wouldn’t find in your typical home.  Features such as a large foyer entrance, marble floors, a wide staircase with designer railings.  But what about the number of TVs?

Raise your hand if you knew that 10 minutes from downtown Fort Worth was one of the few natural waterfalls in the Dallas-Fort Worth.  I don’t see many hands raised.

In the ongoing quest to educate as many Dirty Readers on Fort Worth, I bring you the new neighborhood of Westworth Falls.

The equestrian estate at 6150 Bennett Lawson Road is nice, but wait until you see the horse barn and arena! (photos: Trey Freeze Media)

The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo is just finished.  Now is the perfect time to highlight a property that might be of interest to those who were involved in the three week fête.

Consider the property at 6150 Bennett Lawson Road in Mansfield. At first glance, this 35-acre equestrian estate in Mansfield with a 2,900-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bath home looks like a typical place to raise horses.

Sundance Plaza is a magical setting for sure

Sundance Plaza in Downtown Fort Worth is just one area that comprises Sundance Square (photos with permission from Sundance Square)

What do you know about Sundance Square?

Beyond the obvious answers of, “It’s located in Downtown Fort Worth,” and “I see it a lot on TV when ESPN comes to the Metroplex'” what else do you know?

Did you know that Sundance Square comprises 35 city blocks in the downtown area?  That there are over 4,000,000 square feet of retail, residential, and office space combined.  That in November 2017, over 760,000 people visited the area?  Did you know that the Dallas Morning News called it “the No. 1 place in Dallas to get engaged!” (Do you think they know it’s not in Dallas?)

If you haven’t visited this magical locale lately, you are missing out.

As the demand for housing in West Tarrant County and Parker County continues to increase, Williams Trew Real Estate, Fort Worth’s premiere real estate brokerage, opened a new office to better serve the growing demand.

Located at 405 F.M. 1187 South (try saying that five times quickly) in Aledo, Texas, the new office was officially opened by the East Parker County Chamber of Commerce last week.

Sure it was under 20 degrees but nothing was going to stop Williams Trew from a good old ribbon cutting

Houston Street is the place to be downtown

Does it drive you CRAZY when people pronounce the name “Houston” like “U-ston”?  Or how about the way those snooty Yanks pronounce it, “Howe-ston”?  What is that all about?  Do you think those people know they are completely butchering a fairly simple word? Houston.

Sidenote: There are a handful of people who have called me “Zeth” for years and years.  It’s like nails on a chalkboard.  Now you know how to get on my bad side!

Mantra - you buy your home to sell your home - that fits for this home!

6110 Locke Avenue is a single-story home in Ridglea North with so much to offer. (Photos: Trey Freeze Media)

When meeting with new clients the No. 1 thing I tell them is this: “You buy your home to sell your home.”  They’ll probably hear that mantra 100 times when working with me.

I know I’ve mentioned this before in Tarrant County Tuesday and it rings true still.  Many buyers are so excited and anxious that they will overlook glaring issues with a home that might not bother them, but could hinder selling the home in the future.

When considering a home, you want it to fit your needs of today but also fit the needs of future buyers as well. If the kitchen is too small now, it’s going to be too small later.  A house located on a busy street, it always going to be on a busy street. A two-story home will never work for someone who doesn’t want to climb stairs.

This 3,000-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath home has very inviting entrance with tons of charm.

Which brings us to the single-story house at 6110 Locke Avenue in the Ridglea North addition of Fort Worth. This home perfectly fits my mantra in many ways.
