This custom home built in a traditional eclectic Mediterranean style is located a short walk from TCU on the bluff side of Stadium Drive. A historic two owner home first occupied by the Baird family of local bread-making fame is situated on nearly an acre of beautifully landscaped native and locally sourced plants with spectacular views of Trinity Park, Colonial Country Club, and the Will Rogers complex.
The home has 4 bedrooms, 5 full baths, 2 half baths, and gas log fireplaces in the living room, library, and master bedroom. The farmhouse kitchen with brick accents and attached breakfast nook is perfect for the home chef. The handsome library has beautiful wood casements and a fireplace for relaxing or working in a unique space. The master suite has a “tree house” feel with mature trees just outside the windows along with jetted tub and curb-free shower for serene bathing. The living room and the bedroom above it both feature outdoor patios. The Palladian windows and unique textured walls in the living room and dining room are classic to the home’s style. The full, walk-out basement has windows and doors on 3 sides making this a highly functional and naturally lit space. The three-car basement garage makes entry into the house worry-free in inclement weather.
A few steps from the main house is a retreat like few others in Fort Worth. This magnificent Nader designed retreat includes a spa, pool, pool house with indoor kitchen, bath and generous double-sized shower. The kitchen features Subzero refrigerator, Miele convection-microwave, and Wolf deep fat fryer. The generous covered patio is home to a Wolf gas grill and outdoor gas-assisted wood burning fireplace. Nestled on a wooded hillside amongst lush plantings is a generous soaking spa for relaxing day or night. The pool and spa are serviced by a quaint tile-space, with its five fountains and gas lanterns is a must see feature, unique for an “in town” property.
Due to the home’s unique position high above the Trinity River and with a line of sight to downtown Fort Worth, its microwave enabled Internet access is both reliable and fast. The home was recently updated with both hardwire intranet cabling and Wi-Fi routers. The home includes 4 tankless water heaters serving the main house, pool house and an outdoor shower along with Wi-Fi enabled thermostats and some wall switches for smart phone home control.
