Fort Worth Tudor in Monticello neighborhood is heavy on vintage charm
This vintage 1933 Tudor in the charming neighborhood of Monticello is listed for a cool $1,175,000, but, for that price, you're getting a home that's been meticulously restored to preserve all of its unique characteristics. From the outside of 3908 Monticello Dr., a winding brick walkway; arched front door; and peaked, variegated slate roof create a picture-perfect curb appeal. But, it's what's on the inside that really counts.
Upon entering, the first thing visitors encounter is an elegant staircase leading to the second floor, which has been cleverly extracted from attic space, increasing the square footage of the four-bedroom, four-bath house to a generous 3,789 square feet. Three spacious living areas, three fireplaces, and attractive niches sprinkled here and there add to the unique interior, while the generous distribution of quaint windows floods the home with abundant light.
The updated kitchen features a farm sink, Wolf range, marble counters, and a centrally situated wet bar, all of which seamlessly blend with the home's decor for a contemporary yet classic feel. An upstairs living area contains one of the home's three fireplaces and is also wired for entertainment systems.
A large second-floor master bedroom boasts French doors opening to a small balcony overlooking the backyard and pool. And a luxurious large master bath with marble octagonal floor tiles, twin vanity sinks, a claw-foot tub, and a separate shower completes the package. There's also a guest bedroom connected to a small bath outfitted with hand-painted Mexican tiles, a stylish corner sink, and Saltillo tile.
Back outside, beautiful landscaping and a pool divide the main house and guest house, which adds another 250 square feet and an additional bedroom and bathroom to the property.
The home is listed with Lynne Eller of Williams Trew.
