Million Dollar Listing
Modern Fort Worth home has that $5 million wow factor
Looking for a home with wow factor? The modern estate at 1501 Shady Oaks Ln. in Fort Worth will give you plenty of reasons to fall in love — nearly five million, in fact. Listed at $4.966 million with Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty, this luxurious 6,356-square-foot home in the exclusive neighborhood of Westover Hills boasts location, beauty, and bonuses galore.
The home is set back on a 1.76-acre treed lot, with an electric gate for security. Inside the bold red-orange front door lies stunning architecture, and a meticulous attention to detail. For starters, the large living room features a fireplace centerpiece with a bold tile treatment that extends all the way up to the soaring ceilings. Opposite it, walls of paneless windows look out onto lush greenery — an element recurring in nearly every room, which gives the property a treehouse-like feel. Even the balcony is protected by a glass and metal railing that practically disappears so as not to obstruct the views.
The kitchen is decked out with a Sub Zero fridge, Wolf range, and built-in Miele coffee maker. Exquisite tile work on the backsplash and a showstopping pendant light complement the sleek white cabinetry and marble counters. The large island makes the perfect serving and gathering space.
Off the kitchen, a see-through fireplace separates the breakfast and formal dining areas. (And about that dining room: Why settle for one gorgeous glass and brass light fixture when you can have 16?)
The spacious master features a spa-like en suite bath, with his-and-hers vanities, a floating tub, and a walk-in rain shower. Three additional bedrooms and another three-and-a-half baths round out the interior.
Outside is your own private backyard retreat, featuring a heated saltwater pool and hot tub. When you want to dry off, step inside the pool house, complete with a living room, kitchenette, bedroom, three bathrooms, sauna, and upstairs game room.
And now that you’ve found a roof to cover your head, chances are you’ve got a few cars that will need shelter, too. How about room for seven? Between the attached two-car garage and additional detached garage with space for five, your cars will be safe and secure, ready for their next joyride — or trip to Shady Oaks Country Club, just down the street.
