Built in 1953, this impeccable Ridglea Hills home at 3954 Shannon Drive is on the market for the first time in 42 years.

Located just west of downtown Fort Worth, Ridglea Hills has endured and thrived since its development by the Luther Brothers and Earl Wilson. Three miles of pasture land and rolling terrain became Camp Bowie Boulevard and the historic Ridglea area. In true Cowtown fashion, Angus grazed the land, and when residential lots began to be platted in 1946, fences were gradually pushed back.

Today’s featured property is on a large lot, with more than one-third acre. With its quiet street, single-story construction, towering oaks and groomed lawn, it exemplifies the best of that happy era when Boomers were young and had free run of the neighborhood.

The exceptional family room has approximately 575 square feet. The woodburning fireplace is flanked by built-in bookcases. Tile flooring and recessed lighting unite the kitchen and breakfast area to this delightful center of activity.

Kitchen amenities include double ovens, built-in microwave, Bausch dishwasher, and excellent storage. A very generous utility room and workspace is located nearby.

The appealing formal living room has a second fireplace, built-in bookcases, and opens to the formal dining room. A third living area serves as an intimate den or study.

The bedroom wing includes a large master suite, two additional bedrooms, and a second bath. There are hardwood floors under all of the carpeting throughout.

The parklike backyard is a paradise for all with two lovely patios, and expansive lawn carpeted with lush St. Augustine grass.

This property is listed for $385,000. For more information or a private showing, contact Ivey Ramsey of Virginia Cook, Realtors, 817-829-6809. Also visit the website at
