Love This Listing
You can do a lot to a home to update it, enlarge it, or simply make it look nicer. But charm? That's somewhat inherent — an intangible quality that often comes with age and patina.
The historic Tudor at 4009 Mattison Ave. in Fort Worth offers loads of charm in its 2,044 square feet. Built in 1935, the home’s exterior boasts a pitched roof and an ornate chimney. Inside, the front room is a large, sun-filled living area with a brick fireplace on one end and a fireplace-like façade opposite it, which is used for open storage rather than a crackling fire. The room also has built-in bookshelves and a wet bar, as well as refinished hardwood floors and recessed lighting — both of which can be found throughout the entire first floor.
A nice-sized dining room sits off the kitchen, which has recently been renovated with marble countertops, stainless steel appliances, a gas cooktop, and a double oven. Though compact, the kitchen offers plenty of cabinet space and even room for an eat-in island.
Two downstairs bedrooms feature neutral paint, crown molding, and hardwood floors. They are served by two nicely updated full baths downstairs. Built-in bookcases in the hallway provide additional storage and unique display space.
A lofted area upstairs provides a sizable bonus area with nooks and crannies that can be used any way you like. In addition to laundry, the current owners use it as a third bedroom, office, and storage area. With a dedicated full bath up, the second story makes a great place for guests to have some privacy and feel at home. More built-in storage upstairs adds to the home’s vintage charm.
Also charming: the home’s location — in the Cultural District, just minutes from the Kimball Art Museum, the Modern, and more — as well as its price. Listed at $444,900, the property offers plenty of incentives to prospective buyers. Or for those not ready to make the plunge to buy, it’s also available for lease.
