Fort Worth is a singularly unconventional town where the natives delight in its contrasts: cowboys and culture; black-tie and boots; NASCAR and world-class museums; rodeos and the Fort Worth Symphony.
Fort Worth’s diverse offerings also include its homes. See every architectural style imaginable and the latest in luxury amenities as some of the city’s most exceptional homes for sale are held open today on the Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty summer tour. The homes are especially notable for their extravagant outdoor spaces, most with remarkable pools.
The architecturally-outstanding home at 1125 Shady Oaks Lane is on a cul-de-sac in coveted Westover Hills. Reminiscent of a uniquely chic California-style found in Beverly Hills and Bel Air, the elegant showplace boasts exquisite hand-painted wallpapers, renovated baths and white marble floors in the entry, dining and living areas. A one-of-a-kind feature is the domed and mirrored ceiling in the dining room. The outdoor living area includes a striking pool with arcing water jets. It is represented by Amy Hooper Trott, priced $1,450,000 and open Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
The handsome traditional home at 4051 Modlin Avenue features spacious living areas and designer finishes throughout, and a chef’s kitchen that features expansive granite and stainless-steel countertops and dual sinks. The home has four bedrooms in all, including a private master suite with fireplace, spa-like bath and walk-in closets. The exceptionally elegant pool house, detailed with mullioned windows and a vaulted and beamed ceiling includes a kitchenette and full bath. It is represented by John Zimmerman, priced $1,265,000 and open Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
