Fort Worth Charmer
Just-reduced historic district bungalow appeals to the modern family
It could be described as adorable if not for the fact that the home at 1722 Lipscomb St. in Fort Worth’s Near Southside expands 2,067 square feet, with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. Listed by Kaci Strawn with Alexander Chandler Realty, this Craftsman-style home, built in 2010, blends seamlessly with the surrounding Fairmount historic district.
A large front porch beckons visitors inside, where the charm continues with details such as wide-plank recycled hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and sliding barn doors on the master bathroom. The kitchen has concrete countertops, glass-front cabinets and a farmhouse sink. A chalkboard wall can display salutations, to-do lists or the evening’s menu.
Function is not lost on form inside this home. The desirable first-floor master has dual vanities, a spacious shower and a walk-in closet, while the rest of the bedrooms are upstairs. A convenient second-story flex space can be used as a fourth bedroom, second living area, office or playroom.
A gated driveway and two-car garage, while not the flashiest of features, are certainly rarities in 76110. The backyard has a small walkway that leads to a kid’s playhouse with its own front porch. But don’t worry: There’s plenty of room for adults outside too, with a privacy fence and a stone patio covered by a pergola.
Great for a young family who likes to get out and about, this home is within walking distance to the growing Magnolia Avenue and its shopping and dining destinations, including Kent & Co. Wines, Cane Rosso and Friday on the Green.
Just reduced to $365,000, this home certainly won’t last long.
