Fort Worth abode’s enviable location is trumped only by its style
The quiet, tree-lined street on which 3640 Norfolk Rd. sits belies its neighbor: Texas Christian University is mere blocks from the home. This means you can don your purple and walk to football games but return to your peaceful abode after the final touchdown. The Cultural District, as well, is minutes away.
Charm abounds with this three-bedroom, three-bathroom, 2,423-square-foot home, starting with the covered front porch and its picture-perfect swing. Inside, the large living room is crowned by a fireplace with new Carrara marble surround. Follow the gleaming hardwoods to the light-filled dining room, with French doors and a dramatic chandelier.
The spacious adjacent kitchen features a breakfast bar, granite counters, and an undermount hammered-copper sink. A cozy sitting room doubles as breakfast nook, library, office, or wine pantry — note the space conveniently reserved for a wine cubby.
It'll be tempting to cozy up in the large master bedroom, with its walk-in closet and built-ins, but a set of French doors leads directly to what can only be referred to as a backyard resort.
A covered back patio, shade-providing oak trees, and greenhouse are only the beginning. The outdoor living area has two TVs and an outdoor kitchen complete with bar seating and newly poured concrete countertops. Watch a football game while cooling off in the pool, or enjoy a relaxing movie night from the hot tub.
So what's the price for all this luxurious comfort? Mary Carolyn Gatzke with Briggs Freeman has the listing for $525,000.
