Love This Listing
When walking past 2546 Rogers Ave., you might think the 1920s Tudor looks too good to be true. But fortunately for Fort Worth families looking for a new house, the interior lives up to that picture-perfect exterior.
It measures in at 2,813 square feet, with four bedrooms and four baths, with the master and one guest room located downstairs. Without sacrifice to space or function, the home has retained many of the charming characteristics you expect in one from this era: wood floors, arched doorways, and fireplace, for starters.
Approach that fireplace in the living room, and you’ll see a memento from the home’s past displayed a tiny alcove above.
“The hatchet you see above the fireplace was found during the remodel,” says Briggs Freeman listing agent Mary Carolyn Gatzke. “It was left behind by construction workers who built the original home.”
Well that’s not something you see every day.
This property also has three living areas, which is ideal for a growing family. Whether you need a home office, playroom, or formal sitting area, you have the space for it.
The standout upgrade is the kitchen, with crisp white cabinetry (and oodles of it), large farmhouse sink, and Viking Professional Series appliances for the chef of the household to use while interacting with people in the living room. Also ideal for families is the mud room-like storage off the kitchen.
And that’s just the inside. Gatzke says plenty of memories can be made in the outdoor space as well, and the tree-lined University Place street is on an ice cream truck’s regular route.
“Kids and grown-ups alike will love the spacious paved driveway area perfect for sidewalk chalk, trikes, shooting baskets, or setting up tables for a party,” Gatzke says. “[It’s] secured by a remote-operated iron gate and ready for a full two-car garage should you want to add one.”
The final bonus of this property is that it’s zone for Tanglewood Elementary. Not to mention it’s close to TCU, should the next buyer be a Horned Frogs fan.
The going rate for a house with an ideal location and first-rate public schools? $545,000.
