BY // 07.11.23

A historic Fort Worth home has hit the market in a coveted neighborhood. The horseshoe-shaped neighborhood of Park Hill has remained one of the most desirable locations to call home in Cowtown for a century. Near both Colonial Country Club and Texas Christian University, its central location is a major draw. Tucked into this dramatic tree-lined enclave, you’ll find a Tudor-style home at 2424 Medford Court West.

This beautifully restored house was designed by well-known architect Joseph Pelich, who captured the early English style with a masterful design. The manse was built in 1930. It has been modernized since without losing its historic charm and details. These include corner shelf units, blue stone flooring, dentil as well as Gothic plaster moldings, and traditional diamond grid cottage windows.

It hits the market with an asking price of $2,595,000.

The Austrian-born Pelich first arrived in Fort Worth during World War I. The Cornell University and Sorbonne (Paris) trained architect was a flying instructor during the war and he became the chief flying instructor at Fort Worth’s three airfields. Pelich was one of the early aviators of his era.

And after World War I, he remained in Fort Worth, leaving his indelible mark on its architecture.

To say that the residence at 2424 Medford Court West was crafted by one of Fort Worth’s most storied architects is not an understatement. Some of the most notable commissions for Joseph Pelich in the city include the original Casa Mañana outdoor dinner theatre, educational landmarks such as the Alice E. Carlson and Polytechnic High School, the Scott Theatre and Robert Carr Chapel on the TCU campus.
