Fort Worth Tower Mansion to Hit the Auction Block

Once Listed at $4.49 Million, This Retreat is Loaded With Wild Amenities

BY // 02.01.18

A hot Fort Worth property is heading to the auction block this month. Located 20 minutes outside of the city, 4657 Benavente Court is a rolling two-acre estate with a luxe ranch feel and loads of unique amenities. The home is located in a gated community, 40 minutes away from DFW Airport, and under an hour’s drive from Dallas.

Previously listed at $4.49 million, the house will sell without reserve in cooperation with John Zimmerman of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. 

The 9,998-square-foot home has a stone exterior and ornate details, including two little towers near the front. The surrounding property is meticulously landscaped and outfitted with a basketball court, a batting cage, a putting green, and a multi-level pool with a hot tub.

But, let’s get back to the basics at 4657 Benavente Court — there are seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and two half baths. The master “retreat” is on the first floor with a sitting area, a double-sided fireplace, a large bathroom with a spa-like bath and a vanity area. There’s a second bedroom located on the first floor, and the remaining five bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs.

The home’s interior has a sort of Texan baroque feel – lots of swirly wrought iron, textured walls, bold woodwork, and high vaulted ceilings. The foyer features a dramatic spiral staircase and leads into the home’s formal living area. There’s also a casual living room, a study/office, a playroom, a wet bar, a home theater, and a formal dining room. The sizable kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances, ample cabinet storage, a center island, and a dining area.

The backyard offers an outdoor kitchen, complete with a smoker, grill, kegerator and fridge. The dreamy patio also has a covered cabana for enjoying meals al fresco. And, of course, there are the more unusual features I mentioned above. 

Bidding on this unique Fort Worth home begins on February 21 at 5 p.m. Register to bid here.

Home, chic home.
