An absolutely charming fieldstone cottage in Cowtown’s Bellaire neighborhood — the former residence of Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price — is on the market for just under half a mil. But don’t let that quaint exterior fool you, as there are 2,827 square feet to love inside.
Do the math: That’s a little more than $175 a square foot.
Built in 1940, 3197 Westcliff Rd. has four bedrooms, including a spacious master with walk-in closets; three full baths; two living areas connected by a west bar; tidy country kitchen with bar-height island; and formal dining room. It also boasts a large workshop, three-car garage, guest quarters and party-ready covered flagstone patio.
The place feels pretty traditional, and the bathrooms could use a little sprucing up, but every new owner wants to put his or her stamp on a home, right? You wouldn’t have to touch the hardwoods, and the square footage is there to do with as you please. Plus a little paint goes a long way.
This home is marketed by Williams Trew agent Kay Goldthwaite, who says that it’s all but sold. That’s good news for Goldthwaite and the sellers but a bummer for someone who’s in the market for a sweet abode in one of Fort Worth’s most sought-after neighborhoods.
