One of the most spectacular two-acre hilltop properties to watch the sunsets in Fort Worth with breathtaking views from most rooms in the house! Custom built for the current owners in 2005 by Sebastian Construction, this Georgian Revival Style home is set on a lush tree filled property, designed by well-known Fort Worth architect Rober Dobbins. Interior design consultation with Sherry Hayslip of Hayslip Design Associates in Dallas, as well as consultation by Leigh Taylor Bornitz of Leigh Taylor Interiors in Fort Worth. Elegant details abound with impressive crown dentil moldings, high ceilings, and arched doorways, which showcase the meticulous attention to every detail! A long porch with Georgian columns spans not only the front porch, but the back of the five-bedroom house. It is the perfect setting to display an eclectic assortment of the owner's art and collections of antiques from all over the world! The sellers bought the lot after living in Fort Worth for three years and wanted to capture the view.
The classical work and design of architect John Staub was the inspiration for the design of the home. The architect, builder, and design team worked with the sellers to reproduce an ambiance of traditional elegance and classical details that mark Staub's work while framing the views from every window in the house. The grand entry hall runs from the front door to the back of the house in historical fashion, showcasing a massive two story arched window that frames the view. A long-covered porch spans the length of the back of the house, ideal for entertaining by the pool. There is a large outdoor entertaining area separate from the porch with a grill and outdoor fireplace perfect for entertaining by the pool. There is an elevator that services all three floors.
The guest bedroom suite is on the first floor. Second floor has master with his and hers bathrooms, and a lovely sitting area with a gas fireplace off the master; three other bedrooms, two with balconies and private bathrooms. The third-floor space can be used for tv or media room and a separate workout area or office. Ample storage and extra closets abound. Very flexible space depending on lifestyle needs. The balcony on the third floor has breathtaking views of the Trinity River basin and large enough to host a party! The storage on the third floor is amazing, very well thought out and perfect for Holiday decor storage. The state of the art kitchen features custom cabinets, a wolf range, and a mahogany island. Next to the kitchen is a wonderful breakfast area and private office area. The den is honey colored pine paneling that creates a cozy living area with beautiful custom fireplace and mantle, again with spectacular views to the back yard.
