This spectacular and luxurious modern home, designed by Michael Bennett of Bennett Benner Partners, is perched on a high point in Fort Worth, in the sought-after neighborhood of Parkhill. This 7,130-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath residence was designed with requirements that include comfortable family living coupled with the flexibility to display a diverse art collection, and as a place that can also accommodate frequent parties or galas, inside and out. Extensive planning went into the conception of this home. Construction was completed in 2017. The resulting design is anchored by a double-height gallery space, which serves as a visual axis between the front entry and the view in the back. The 52-foot-long galley features 22-foot ceilings, superior drywall finish, custom lighting for art and a built-in art-hanging system. Two cross axes arrange the home’s formal and informal functions. Just off the gallery is an expansive library with fantastic natural light and a site-specific work above the fireplace by Jennifer McClanahan, depicting the Continental Divide in relief. The sleek gourmet kitchen includes a large island, Dekton countertops, a Bertazzoni range, a Liebherr refrigerator, custom cabinets, a full-size wine refrigerator and butler’s pantry, which also functions as catering space. Living space on the first level is comfortable, yet functional for large gatherings. There is additional living space upstairs. Glass walkways lead to three bedrooms, all en-suite, with the highlight being the spacious master bedroom, which has a patio looking over the pool area and grounds. The master suite also includes a large custom closet with laundry and a fully appointed luxury bath. A large, 450-plus-square-foot bonus room is adjacent to the master suite and could be used as an artist studio, media room or additional guest quarters. The home's contemporary design features rough-cut and honed Lueders limestone, soaring glass windows and doors, terrazzo floors and a standing-seam metal roof. This resort-like estate features meticulously manicured grounds and is the perfect venue for luxury living and relaxation. The home is impeccably built and loaded with technology. A few highlights include a highly efficient geothermal heat-pump system; a Lutron lighting system that is centrally controlled and fully programmable; specific lighting for art; a Crestron whole-house media-control system; exterior cameras and a fire-suppression system. The home also features a private well and water-catchment system for the pool and irrigation. The exterior grounds include award-winning landscaping, an in-ground infinity-edge gunite pool, a perfect cabana and an outdoor living area. The lot is expansive and also includes a lower-level area that is highlighted by an extraordinary waterfall with a gazebo, fire pit and flex space at the base of the fall. The grounds of the home have been featured on the Historic Fort Worth garden tour and the home has been recognized as Best in City Center from the IIDA Texas/Oklahoma chapter, an award for the best work in any city in the region, regardless of type or budget. The home has also been featured in the Mansion section of The Wall Street Journal and on the cover of 360 West magazine. 2244 Winton Terrace in Fort Worth is represented by Laurie Brants and Clay Brants for $3,920,000.
