Magnolia West

Realtor John Zimmerman with Compass is hosting a progressive open house party (complete with Texas-OU game watching and noshes at every home) in the latest and greatest private gated community, Magnolia West. The event is Saturday, Dec. 1, and begins at 11:30 a.m.

Westworth Village is a growing enclave just outside Fort Worth, but don’t let the small-town population fool you — it’s close to some of the best amenities Fort Worth has to offer, and the private, gated Magnolia West community puts you right in the thick of everything.

Magnolia West is perched across the street from Shady Oaks Country Club, and is close to the Fort Worth Cultural District, museums, West 7th Street, restaurants, shopping, and plenty of entertainment venues.

And the community also offers some of the best luxury home builders in the area, too, crafting high-end custom, single-family homes that start in the $700,000 range on up — including JAAVA Custom Homes, Village Homes, and Integrity Homes.

And as we mentioned yesterday, if you’ve got a hankering to check out the private neighborhood,  Compass’s  John Zimmerman  is hosting one doozy of a progressive-style open house, complete with plenty of things to nosh on, wine to taste, and yes, the Texas-OU Big 12 Championship showdown at every home you visit (more details on that here). There will also be shopping opportunities with local vendors, so bring your Christmas lists!

But wouldn’t you like a sneak peek? Because we can give you a glimpse of one of the homes on the tour — 157 Magnolia Lane, built by JAAVA Custom Homes (but trust us, you need to go see this home in person, too!). (more…)

Westworth Falls is one of few natural waterfalls in the area

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.
