A home of former United States Congressman and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Jim Wright, has recently become available for sale in the Overton Woods neighborhood of Fort Worth.

The Overton Woods Neighborhood is a highly desirable neighborhood tucked between the Trinity River and Riverhills.  The area is filled with many large trees that not only cover yards, but streets as well.  Homes in Overton Woods date from the 1980s to present day.  The area is  minutes from TCU, the Trinity Trails, and downtown Fort Worth.

Did you know that Fort Worth had high-end lake front property just 11 miles from the center of downtown Fort Worth?  Me neither.  I’ve lived in Cowtown for almost 15 years and I never knew that.  I’ve certainly driven on Highway 820 North and crossed Lake Worth, but never realized what a fabulous destination it was for homes.  I guess I should get out more!

Warm & inviting, tranquil surroundings all in Tarrant County
