Fort Worth Fab
Anomaly of a home in hot Fort Worth neighborhood makes excellent use of views
One of the reasons Fort Worth’s eye-popping population growth in the last 20 years has been absorbed with relative ease (and it’s only going to continue) is the large number of developments built on newly available land. Such is the case with Mira Vista.
One of the best Fort Worth neighborhood hoods to buy a house right now, Mira Vista is the result of a significant land purchase in 1985 of 625 acres of ranch land. Built around a challenging Tom Weiskopf golf course on a high bluff, the development affords stunning views to the west, as its name suggests.
The area is frankly better known for its impressive McMansions, so the marvel at 6628 Sahalee Dr., designed by award winning architect Norman Ward, is a beautiful anomaly.
The 4,100-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath house is a disciplined composition of stucco, glass, and pegged Spanish cedar. The airy, open, double-height main room, designed with astute fenestration, exploits the breathtaking westward panorama to Lake Benbrook beneath the terraced pool.
The light-filled home sits on half an acre, and the surroundings can be enjoyed outdoors or in.
The floor plan is comfortably functional for any age or lifestyle. It has a desirable downstairs master, plus a guest bedroom and two additional spacious bedrooms with assigned bathrooms on each floor. It is listed with John Zimmerman of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s for $1,299,000.
