(Candy’s Dirt) – A lot of neighborhoods have one of those special homes. You know, that special house people walk by or drive by, then stop to admire its outstanding looks? Its eye-catching curb appeal with a show-stopping allure?

Well, that house could be 4917 Marble Falls Road in the White Lake Hills neighborhood of east Fort Worth. This unique area of homes is a quick hop on I-30 to get to Downtown Fort Worth. This Midcentury Modern is a standout.

“The first comments we get are ‘We’ve driven by this house all on our life’,“ said listing agent Melodee Young when reflecting on the multiple showings this house has had in a short time. “People say that, and they haven’t even seen the inside.”

Only One on the Block

Among its distinguishing characteristics is that it’s a Midcentury Modern among a block of traditional Ranch houses.

“It doesn’t look like any of the others,” said Young, who is with RE/MAX Pinnacle Group.

The lush landscape is another that makes people tap the brakes as they drive by. Tall trees and curved beds give it a cooling effect, even in the July heat. Then there’s the home’s terraced backyard. The homeowner laid brick, artfully connecting patio areas.

“It would just be the perfect place for a party,” Young said. “It looks great.”

All this greatness is easy to see from the home’s interior because of the large windows, soaring to the height of a two-story house, overlooking the terraced patios. That living room also features a two-story vaulted ceiling, cozy built-in bookshelves, and a wood-burning fireplace.

The living room’s brick flooring links it to the kitchen and hallway flooring. The kitchen in the 1967 house has been updated with appliances, granite countertops, striking black cabinets, and trendy hardware.

White Lake Hills

Listed at $318,000, the house offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms within its 1,816 square feet. One of the bedrooms, currently used as an office, is lined with unique bi-fold doors. Opening those doors will reveal bunk beds, transforming it easily into a guest room.

Getting comps for this area isn’t the normal routine, said Young, who’s been in real estate for 22 years. White Lake Hills is a special neighborhood in east Fort Worth, located near Nolan Catholic High School. The subdivision began as a 1918 dairy farm. When the dairy closed, the acres became dotted with homes to people seeking a rural life close to big-city conveniences.

The White Lake Hills house most likely will not be on the market long. Besides the unique neighborhood, this eye-catching house has much to offer, especially if the house-buying budget is less than $350,000.

“It’s not like anything you’ve ever seen,” said Young.
