Martha Williams and Williams Trew Sotheby's International Realty present a rare opportunity to own one of the most prestigious homes in Fort Worth. The Edwin Bewely house was built in 1927 by well-known Houston architect John Staub. The expansive property, almost eight acres in the heart of River Crest, allows for a quiet, private retreat just steps away from River Crest Country Club. As one drives through the gates and down the gravel path, it is as if you are transported to the English country side. Here, architectural features combine the dignity and elegance of the English medieval vernacular. The home rests perfectly on the contours of the property. Red brick electrifies the verdant landscape, and the deliberate, brick work invigorates the home's exterior. The circular drive ends in front of the grand entry gable. A large casement window, framed with a brick arch, not only anchors the center line of the home, but also provides warm light to the foyer. Not to be outmatched by the front of the home, the south side is just as specatcular with a diamond cross pattern accentuating the status of the central gable, French doors opening to the lawn, and another patio. Stepping through the massive entry door, you experience framed view of the expansive south lawn through the formal library. The main stair curves and rises to the right leading to a large, upstairs foyer. The formal living room, with French doors and fireplace, opens to a loggia and large terrace across the front of the estate. Each window offers spectacular views of the grounds. Large wood plank floors energize the interior and underscore the grandeur of the space. Other living spaces include a large dining room with beautiful moldings, a breakfast room, and a spacious, updated kitchen with butler's pantry. Located on the second floor is the master suite with a fully renovated bath and walk-in dressing area with elegant built-in closets. There are two additional bedrooms with adjoining baths upstairs, and two bedrooms and one full bath on the first floor, just off the kitchen wing. There is also a powder bath on the first floor just off the entry. A full basement, with mechanical room and workshop, provides immense storage. The pool and guest house capitalize on northward views. The guest house has a large covered patio with double French doors. The inside, with an open concept, echoes the architectural details of the original Staub home. A vaulted ceiling in the living and dining area, as well as elegant windows, pay homage to the main home and complement its elegant design. An additional bedroom and bath complete the poolside strcture. Exclusively listed by Williams Trew Sotheby's International Realty, the home may be shown by appointment only. The price is available upon request.
