With the Colonial golf tournament (or Dean & Deluca Invitational, to be exact) coming up in May, we couldn't help but notice the regal property at 3201 Avondale St., down the street from where all the action will be.
Listing agent John Zimmerman of Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty knows this is an ideal location in one of the best neighborhoods in the city.
"Avondale is one of the most prestigious and desirable streets in Fort Worth," Zimmerman says. "In addition to being so close to Colonial Country Club and its annual PGA golf tournament, it's within walking distance to TCU's football stadium and the nationally ranked Horned Frogs."
Its proximity to world-class museums and downtown Fort Worth doesn't hurt either.
The sprawling, 3,831-square-foot home has a first-floor master that comes complete with large walk-in closets and a full bathroom. There is also a second bedroom on the first floor, which could serve as a guest room or nursery. Two more bedrooms and another three-and-a-half baths finish it all out.
Chocolate hardwoods and plantation shutters provide the stunning design groundwork for nearly any decor choice. Carrera marble countertops in the kitchen give a fresh, updated feel; a wine fridge, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and walk-in pantry are icing on the cake.
"This home is a timeless classic," Zimmerman says. "Everything was completely remodeled by Doug Brooks in 2010 in a style that is clean, open, and perfect for modern families."
And that's just the inside. The home's large corner lot is showcased with the backyard and its covered porch area. There's also adequate space for a swing set, pool, and doggie play area. That's one big backyard.
There is no garage, but instead three carport spaces, which could be a deal-breaker for those shopping in the price range of this $1,189,000 home.
