Giordano, Wegman, Walsh and Associates, an exclusive affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate, is proud to present one of Texas' most prized architectural treasures. Designed in the early 1900's by the prestigious architecture firm of Sanguinet and Staats, this beautiful estate was painstakingly constructed over a three-year period beginning in 1910. Named for its original owners, the Baldridge estate, one of Fort Worth's original homesteads, became a Texas Landmark in 1978. Preserving the architectural integrity of this historic home and its grounds was a priority for the current owners. Recently completing an exhaustive two-year renovation, this timeless home is now an artful balance of historic elegance and modern comfort. Located in Fort Worth's most prestigious neighborhood, the Baldridge House is minutes from the most exclusive and sought after River Crest Country Club, the fine dining and shopping of Camp Bowie Boulevard, the world-famous art collections of The Modern, Amon G. Carter and Kimbell art museums, the excitement and nightlife of the newly developed 7th Street corridor, Fort Worth's vibrant downtown "Sundance Square" and the expansive beauty of the Trinity River park and trail system. Few properties command the privacy and proud stature of the Baldridge House. The nearly one-and-a-half-acre estate is protected by a privacy fence and hedge. The oversized curved drive is accentuated by its own separate entry and exit gates. Juxtaposed by the grandeur of the home, guests are greeted by an understated, yet ornate fountain, which gives a proud and peaceful nod to this magnificent home. Meanwhile, the impressive, two story entry veranda, with massive lime stone columns framed by Italian Cypress trees, is truly awe inspiring. The entry veranda spans the length of the home, and is complemented by beautiful French doors, with arched topped transoms. The stonework, craftsmanship and detailing surrounding the entry would be difficult, at best, to duplicate. Cast stone balustrades adorn the ceiling and porch, while stone work gracefully balances the windows and serves as the detailing on the eaves and soffit. Upon entering, the stunning grand foyer, is an architectural feat of excellence, with chocolate brown marble floors, pure white wainscoting, intricate coffered ceilings and perfectly rounded elliptical arches, all magically drawing one's eyes towards the grand sweeping stairway. Passing through the elliptical arches to the main living area is a true pleasure. The space is simply flooded with joyful light. There is perfect symmetry here, twenty foot ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and room to entertain for any occasion. This estate has three living spaces, perfect for formal and informal gatherings, a billiard room with oak paneling and highly detailed oak coffered ceilings, four bedrooms with pine floors, lavish bathrooms and large storage spaces. A large and spacious custom built wet bar room which is cleverly tucked away, yet opens to serve the main living areas and is adorned with glass front, lighted faux painted cabinetry. There is also a private study with stained paneling and custom cabinetry. The formal dining area is accentuated by a large fireplace, wood beamed ceiling and a phenomenal oversized chandelier. This dining area will accommodate any dinner engagement and is lined with eight foot French doors, which open to the front veranda adding to the dramatic grandeur of this space. The master suite is truly magnificent. It features a gorgeous bathroom, custom fireplace and has its own private balcony with breathtaking northern views of the city. The bathroom has elegant marble countertops, heated flooring, a fantastic stained wood paneled tub and his and hers walk in closets. The gourmet kitchen complete with informal dining and keeping room features its own fireplace, commercial-grade appliances, heated tile floors and custom stained wood cabinetry.
