Colonial Hills: A classic, graceful haven in the heart of Fort Worth
There are so many great places to live in Fort Worth that it helps to have an expert on your side. The Neighborhood Guide presented by Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty gives you insider access from the agents who live and work there, providing in-the-know info about your possible new community.
Powerhouse agent Ashley Mooring’s affinity for all things home isn’t just about artfully connecting people to extraordinary properties and lifestyles — it also extends to remodeling, space management, architecture, and design. In this way, she is able to help her clients buy and sell homes with a holistic and seamless approach.
Having worked in the Fort Worth market for more than 15 years, she has specialized knowledge of the central classic neighborhoods — like Colonial Hills — in addition to the downtown urban areas and surrounding suburbs.
Mooring offered up a few of her personal favorites about life in Colonial Hills. Here's her guide to the area:
Where to eat & drink
Mooring suggests Quince in Riverside for an upscale-casual dining experience.
For surf favorites (and a solid weekend brunch), head to Pacific Table — and for turf, it’s Silver Fox steakhouse for her.
Jon’s Grille is the place for burgers; they come in two sizes — fatty and flatty! You can also indulge in brisket and other barbecue staples there, but don’t skip the Best Maid Fried Pickles.
Where to play
“Walk the trails from Woodshed Smokehouse to Press Cafe,” says Mooring. Grab a bite at one or both places for a progressive dining experience.
She also recommends Courtside Kitchen, a restaurant and pickleball facility where you can also find live music, cornhole, a putting green, and more.
In addition, Colonial Country Club is right in the neighborhood and is a favored destination for golf.
What to see
During football season, watching the TCU Horned Frogs play a home game at Amon G. Carter Stadium is a must.
Where to live
"The beautiful thing about Colonial Hills is that it’s abounding in sophisticated grace," says Mooring. "Between the stunning homes — from traditional two-story beauties to Tudor-style charmers — and the generous lots as well as the abundance of trees, it feels like a haven that’s also convenient to Fort Worth attractions."
