The term “Renaissance man” was first used to describe Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo in the 14th century as men with interests and gifts in arts, sciences, politics, and intellectual pursuits.

These days, true Renaissance men are few and far between.  Whether it’s because people have become more specialized in pursuing interests and careers, or that there isn’t enough time in the day to explore new horizons, to find someone with a variety of gifts and passions is quite a feat.

The Renaissance Dentist

Steven Jones started his career as a dentist.  No, actually he got a Doctorate of Dental Surgery – even before he got his Bachelor’s Degree from Baylor University — but he never cleaned gums or asked anyone to spit.

“Since the 4th grade I wanted to be a dentist,” explains Jones.  “When I started pre-dentistry classes and I quickly realized that wasn’t the career for me, but I went ahead and finished dental school.”

I have always wanted to explore 5224 El Campo, and I finally did! (photos: Trey Freeze Media)

Are there certain houses throughout your city that you’ve always had your eyes on, and have yearned to explore?

For me, there are many like that.  Some homes are just massive castle-like dwellings that I can only imagine how over-the-top they must be.  Others are in intriguing locations.  Some just look unique from the outside and I’ve always wanted to check them out.

5224 El Campo is unlike any other home in Fort Worth, and that’s why you need to see it

I Want To See Inside That Home

5224 El Campo in Fort Worth has always been one of those homes for me. Built in 2002 by local builder Village Homes, it has a look and style that were ahead of its time — that’s probably what first drew me to the home many years ago.

Located on 1.5 acres along Ridglea Golf Course, 4404 Ridgehaven Road is private, exclusive and a great value! (photos: Trey Freeze Media)

Quick question: How many one acre (or larger) homesites exist within a 1.5-mile radius of three of Fort Worth’s most exclusive country clubs?

Quick answer: Not many.

Privacy comes with this home

Notice the mature trees surrounding 4404 Ridgehaven Road backing to Ridglea Golf Course

If you’re a fan of Tarrant County Tuesday (and I know you are) you probably see a unifying thread from last week’s post — exclusive country club homes on large golf course homesites. And 4404 Ridgehaven Road, backing to Ridglea Golf Course is exactly that.

Merrick

Graceful, sweeping, polished: Words that spring to mind on touring this 1961 architect designed residence at 1919 Merrick Street. Architect, Glenn Allen Galaway was trained by legendary New York architect Phillip Johnson and contributed a small but dignified portfolio of houses to Dallas and Fort Worth.

Galaway can’t claim credit for the gorgeous lot with ravine views, but he deserves high kudos for exploiting the site, fitting his design with seemingly effortless aplomb into the splendid environment.

Hamilton is a great street in this area

3720 Hamilton Avenue is a hit in the Monticello neighborhood of Fort Worth (photos: Trey Freeze Media)

What do you know about Hamilton? With the recent success of the hit Broadway musical with the same name, we probably know more than Alexander Hamilton knew about himself.  But I’m not talking about that Hamilton.

I’m talking about the new listing at 3720 Hamilton Avenue in the Monticello neighborhood of Fort Worth.

This traditional Colonial-style home sitting on a Double Homesite in one of Fort Worth’s finest neighborhoods

Side Note: Isn’t it funny how cities look to events that happened hundreds of years ago which had zero effect on that city or area for names. For instance, the Monticello neighborhood, Hamilton Avenue … you think there’s a Cowtown neighborhood with a Bowie Avenue somewhere in Virginia?  I doubt it.

Listed by Kendall Karr of Williams Trew Real Estate, this exquisite home of 4,500 square feet built in the Colonial tradition is definitely a home worth seeing.

Hamilton is a fantastic street

There is so much room both inside and outside this home. Truly unique in what it offers buyers.

Windows everywhere - one of a kind

2600 W. 7th #1801 in Montgomery Plaza is a one-of-a-kind condo with amazing views (photos: Shoot2Sell)

“One of a kind.”  How many times have we heard that phrase? We often hear it when referencing athletes, jewelry, clothing or articles of interest, but what really is “one of a kind?”  Most of the time we aren’t even sure how to punctuate it. 

According to our friends in the worldwide interwebs, “one of a kind” means not like anything else in the world — truly unique. Maybe we need to re-think things when we use that phrase, but not when we talk about a one-of-a-kind condominium located at 2600 West 7th Street #1801 in the Montgomery Plaza building.

imagine having to Windex all those windows

The utmost in condo look and feel! (more…)

612 Rockledge Court in Point Vista at Parks of Aledo (photos: Norman & Young)

Point Vista at Parks of Aledo is where nature calls home.  If you’re tired of large cookie-cutter homes and concrete, this is the neighborhood for you.

Point Vista — The Place To Be

Located in the burgeoning town of Aledo, just 13 minutes west of Fort Worth, the Parks of Aledo neighborhood was established to meet the demand for quality homes close to pocket parks that fit into the landscape — not destroy it.

Point Vista at Parks of Aledo is an extension of the original neighborhood.  You will still find curvilinear streets surrounding pocket parks and a world-class mountain bike trail that stretches for miles and miles.

You probably remember my 1,000-plus word ode to Parks of Aledo from 2018 if you’ve followed this blog for a while.
