Tap the brakes. You gotta see this Fort Worth charmer. It’s under $400,000, and adorable.

“It’s darling,” said listing Realtor Debbie Byrd with League Real Estate. “Every time someone comes into the house, they always say ‘Wow, it’s better than the picture.’ “

This home is in the desirable 76107 ZIP Code. Built in 1947, it comes with a list of upgrades and renovations made in the past four years. The current owners of this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home have touched everything from baseboards to appliances, Byrd said. The improvements even include the unseen but important things like the water heater and sewer line.

A Dallas-Fort Worth fly-in community will become one of the largest in the nation once its expansion is complete.

Pecan Plantation, located in Granbury about 35 miles southwest of Fort Worth, has added a second runway on the eastern side of the development and is selling homesites with direct and taxi access to the strip.

Half of the new lots have already sold, said Zach Milton, a land consultant with Patten Properties, the Florida company behind the project. Of the 120 planned lots, roughly 50 to 60 remain. Two are direct runway sites while the remaining lots have taxi access.

The University Place neighborhood began development in the years after TCU moved from Waco to Fort Worth in the early 1900s.

When Texas Christian University moved from Waco to southwest Fort Worth in 1911, a new suburban addition sprang up nearby to serve the college community.

The addition was four miles from the city, a long commute with no paved roads and no streetcar service. The Fort Worth police did not even patrol there because it was outside city limits. For law enforcement, residents had to depend on the Tarrant County sheriff. But the future was bright.

The area around TCU was ripe for development. The rolling hills were elevated enough to get cooling western breezes, with good soil and a good water supply by tapping into the water table not far below.

As Fort Worth grows, and available land in the urban core becomes more scarce, Greenway is getting new attention from home builders.

Greenway Place was the kind of place where the whole village raised the children. If you got in trouble, your parents knew about it before you got home, and the friends you made playing in the nearby city dump lasted a lifetime.

It was also one of the first neighborhoods in Fort Worth where Black residents could buy homes. Established in the early 1940’s, Greenway became a center of the city’s Black culture with an annual Juneteenth celebration in nearby in Greenway Park.

But since the construction of Interstate 35W in 1959, Greenway has been cut off from the rest of the city, sandwiched between the freeway and the Union Pacific rail yard. The neighborhood also faced decline when several residents lost their homes to tax foreclosure.
