One of Fort Worth’s Most Nostalgic Neighborhoods — The Story of Crestwood and a Charming $1.2 Million Bungalow

A Historic House With Modern Perks

BY // 11.09.22

One of Fort Worth’s most nostalgic neighborhoods has a new home listing of note. Hugged by River Crest and nestled inside the Trinity River’s West Fork levees is Crestwood, with its historic homes and tree-lined streets. The large lots introduced a range of houses beginning in the 1930s with stately manor-style homes and quaint bungalows — and later filling in with of-the-moment ranches after World War II. Crestwood remains one of Fort Worth’s most sought-after addresses.

From its front entrance, 104 Crestwood Drive (built in 1940) appears to be along the quaint bungalow side of things. But once you cross the threshold, you’ll find a stylish family home with ample entertaining room. 104 Crestwood is listed for $1,249,000 by Blake Griffin and Mary Monkhouse of Compass Real Estate.

The open-flow floor plan retains its historic detailing and charm. The line of sight leads from a formal living room, through the dining room, and to the den beyond, with its view to a backyard fireplace and swimming pool. Crown moldings and warm oak floor planks flow throughout.

104 Crestwood brings a den with warm oak under foot and 12 foot sliding doors leading to a covered patio.

The formal living is painted an enchanting fern green, which includes its built-in bookshelves flanking the fireplace and even its ceiling. The formal dining room opens to a modern kitchen, with its French empire chandelier visible from nearly every room in the house. The clean white den is lined with a wall of 12-foot sliding glass doors open to an outdoor living area with its wood-burning fireplace and swimming pool wrapped in travertine stone decking. The den is decorated with a collection of saddles from local artist Marshall Harris.

The full bath off the den is bold with its panther print wallpaper and a shower wrapped in green subway tile.

The gourmet kitchen at 104 Crestwood boasts Carrara marble countertops, a double oven for hosting and holidays, as well as a gas range. Stainless appliances are joined by a Miele wine refrigerator. Above the large island hangs a duo of globe and brass pendant lights. Another wall of windows provides views of the backyard with its covered patio and shady lagoon-style pool. A clean kitchen office fills in the space.
