The home at 1112 Elizabeth Boulevard, also known as “The Fry” house, was named after the original owners and was built in 1911. This Prairie-style home is mostly original with a huge wrap-around front porch. It is also considered a monument in the Ryan Place neighborhood. This was the first home to be built on Elizabeth Boulevard. In 1949, it was purchased by the current owner’s grandfather.

The home is in almost the exact same condition as it was in 1911. The original concrete horse tie standing tall by the front curb and the grand, sprawling front porch are a few features showcasing the essence of the past. There are two living areas which are perfect for entertaining and a formal dining room that could showcase an oversized formal dining table. There is original tile and crown molding that are stunning accents to this historic treasure. Huge windows throughout the home give the rooms a bright fresh feeling and make it feel even larger than its current 4,666 square feet. There is also a bonus room on the third floor with a pool table ready to use. There is also a good view of TCU in the distance.

Located in the back is a guest home in great condition which offers a bathroom and a kitchen. The front and side yard’s landscape lighting show off the perfectly maintained trees and the homes dramatic architecture. Sitting on a double lot, room for enhancement and creativity with the space is endless.
