This year’s Fort Worth Magazine Dream Home, a luxury contemporary hacienda under construction in West Fort Worth’s Walsh development, is nearing completion.
Fort Worth Magazine’s Dream Home, a 5,542-square-foot luxury contemporary hacienda under construction by Sean Knight Custom Homes, is nearing completion on a bluff in the sprawling Walsh development in far West Fort Worth.
The home, at 13708 Nouvelle Circle in Walsh’s Cline Park custom section, is listed for sale by John Zimmerman of Compass at $1.585 million. It will be open for tours Sept. 28 – Oct. 20 to benefit a Wish with Wings, the magazine’s charity. Visitors to the home can purchase tickets at fwtx.com.
The home, the first in Walsh’s custom section to go under construction, sits by itself on a large lot surrounded by neighborhood streets and no next-door neighbors. The home’s entry is on its east side, but virtually every space in the home is oriented toward the west and the spectacular sunsets to come over the Dream Home’s pool. “It’s positioned well,” Knight, the longtime luxury builder who started his career in high school, says. “You’re not ever going to lose view.”
It’s the latest in our years-long series of Dream Homes, in which the magazine collaborates with builders and some of the region’s finest vendors to build luxury homes sporting the latest features. Tammy McBee and Debbie Hundley, of The Design Center in Weatherford, are handling the Dream Home’s interior.
The Dream Home sports a stucco exterior, barrel tile roof, wood floors, arches, barrel vault ceilings, and pine ceiling beams. As in transitional, contemporary, and modern design, traffic flow through the home is easy, with two living spaces opening into the kitchen and spilling onto the covered outdoor patio, kitchen, pool, and spa. The first level includes a master suite, with two-story hallway atrium entry. It also features a guest suite, formal dining room, and study.
The second floor has a game room with wet bar and covered balcony overlooking the pool, game room, half bath, and two bedrooms with full baths.
Big bonus is the Dream Home’s Walsh lifestyle-rich community, which includes fast Wi-Fi, an athletic club, lap and resort pools, neighborhood market and gas station, maker space, miles of hike and bike trails, parks, and recreational lagoon. Virtually all of the development is in the Aledo Independent School District; the Mary D. & F. Howard Walsh Elementary School in the development has about 600 students today. Cook Children’s is under construction on a clinic in Walsh.
Walsh has 527 residential lots in its first-phase section, built by production builders. It recently released the first 67 lots in its second planning area, which will have a total 553 lots. Prices will range from $300,000 to more than $1 million. The custom section will have 40 lots, and Walsh has released half to builders.
