See the Fabulous Fifties in their full glory at 2601 Hartwood Drive in Fort Worth – a rare and shining example of mid-century modern architecture, from the floor-to-ceiling windows, to the clean lines, to the sculpture bursting out of the brick at the home’s entrance.

Built in 1956 by noted Fort Worth John Floore, this home sits at the corner of Mockingbird Lane and Hartwood Drive in the Tanglewood neighborhood. It was built on the Brachman estate when it was subdivided the first time, into Mockingbird Lane Addition.

The original homeowners raised their family here and did a fantastic job at preserving the home’s charm and doing necessary but minimal updates throughout the last 65 years.

The low roof pitch, teak cabinetry and that indoor-outdoor flow make this home a pure example of the mid-century modern style.

The home was custom built to take full advantage of the sunlight, which brightens the interiors. Airy rooms flow one into the other.

The .347-acre lot is filled with trees, with a creek view.

The master suite accesses one of several outdoor areas for a private little seating area.

Two additional bedrooms are lined with lovely windows as well.

The home is conveniently located near Tanglewood Elementary and is surrounded by many dining and shopping areas. Across the street sits the legendary Colonial Country Club golf course. (A second story or roof deck would provide a fairway view!)
