Love This Listing
The eclectic home at 3401 Dorothy Ln. S. in Fort Worth's desirable Monticello neighborhood is a pristine example of midcentury modern design — with a few surprises.
This treasured time capsule is focused around a central room that features soaring ceilings, refinished terrazzo floors, and a banana tree. We had to ask listing agent Pam Robbins of Williams Trew the question on everyone's mind: Is it real?
"Definitely real and actually produces bananas," Robbins said. "He also grows lemons, limes, and oranges. In fact, there are two yards. The one on the north side out of the utility room has a garden and a chicken yard with coop."
The home's big personality matches the space with its five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Many of the bedrooms could be mistaken for the master, due to their spacious layout, however, the gorgeous updated master bath with its large glass shower gives it away.
Moving through the home, there are separate formal living and dining rooms featuring stacked stone, a see-through fireplace, and new cork flooring. And although it might look like a blast from the past at first glance, the kitchen has been extensively updated, featuring a burner gas stove with a grill and wok attachment, convection oven, and warming drawer.
This midcentury modern treasure is coming off a $30,000 reduction and is currently listed for $649,000, a steal considering its big personality and expansive 4,593 square feet.
