A treasure from yesterday to be cherished tomorrow, 2101 Lipscomb Street is located in the Fairmount area of Fort Worth. Majestically sited on a hilltop overlooking Lipscomb Street, it exemplifies the Prairie-style of the early 1900s. Spacious rooms and high ceilings offer various options for furniture arrangements. The front door opens into the parlor with its decorative fireplace and built-in bench seating and onto the living room with a door to the side porch.
The adjoining dining room, able to accommodate a number of guests, offers a pool view from the bay window on the south. Beyond the butler's pantry is the kitchen with its granite counters and bright natural light, open to the breakfast room where one can enjoy casual meals.
A full bath with claw-foot tub is on the first floor. A wide stairway, with a window at the first landing, leads to a larger landing on the second floor. The master bedroom with private bath and balcony, two more bedrooms, an additional full bath and utility room complete the upstairs. In one of the bedrooms, a window offers a wintertime view of downtown Fort Worth. The basement, finished and unfinished areas, are an expansion of the generous square footage of the home.
The flooring is refinished oak throughout first and second stories, with an exception of the kitchen area which is pine. Brick is the flooring in the finished basement.
A view of the pool can be enjoyed from the porches, the master bedroom windows as well as the master balcony. Surprisingly, there is a two-car garage, a rarity in the Fairmount area.
The property is priced $549,000 and shown by appointment only. Contact Harriet Henderson, Burt • Ladner Real Estate at 817-929-6652.
