This grand, Spanish-Colonial country estate is located only minutes from downtown Fort Worth. Built in the mid 1930’s, the home continues to impress all those who enter, with its unrelenting quality of craftsmanship. The original owner, Fort Worth trial attorney Gillis A. Johnson, was vitally engaged in the intricacies of the homes' design and decor. Architectural features abound in this treasure trove and include a hand-forged iron staircase, original stone floors and beautiful wood floors throughout most of the living areas. High wood beams with iron brackets grace the ceilings. Large custom doors, wrought-iron balconies and ornamental tiles are just some of the very special details. There are nine fireplaces and almost every bedroom has its own. These unique flourishes are nearly impossible to find today. The property is located on 23 serene acres, backing up to Mary's Creek. The Butterfield Stage went right through the property. The current owners have kept the property all organic, and it is a natural habitat of game birds (including turkey) and deer. The numerous fountains, 40-foot reflecting pool, mature trees and sprawling grounds reinforce the grandeur of the home. The current owners have extensively upgraded the property including electrical, HVAC and buried gas and power lines. Even with the upgrades, they have maintained the integrity of the original home. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Fort Worth history and to be in the country yet only five minutes from shopping, restaurants and schools. Co-Listed with Allen Crumley.
