NEIGHBORHOOD SUMMARY:

Eight years ago this charming neighborhood would have held a spot firmly planted in the “up and comers” category. But, as of now, it has come. Thanks to nearby Magnolia Avenue and the bevy of bars, restaurants, food trucks, coffee shops and parks, it is certifiably walkable. Residents can leave the car at home, walk to Magnolia Avenue, grab some wheels from the B-cycle station and make it to most areas of Fort Worth without an engine. The thriving new businesses are juxtaposed by bungalow and four-square homes from the late 1800s and early 1920s. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, structures are protected under a Historic District Overlay, meaning homeowners have to abide by a certain set of guidelines when rehabbing a home. But that hasn’t stopped numerous flippers from investing in houses in the area. The result is a picturesque and charming neighborhood with steadily climbing home values.
