Monticello, One Of The Top 5 Neighborhoods in Fort Worth
“What other way can I say it? Monticello is the ideal neighborhood to grow up in. I count myself blessed to have grown up in Monticello. Neighbors are family, the homes are beautiful, and the location is unbeatable.”
In the words of Payton Maddox, a long-time resident of the Monticello neighborhood in Fort Worth, Monticello neighborhood is a highly sought after and enjoyed neighborhood in Fort Worth. Within a mile of the River Crest Country Club, an esteemed country club in Fort Worth, as well as a mile from the booming West Seventh Street shops and restaurants, Monticello provides the ultimate living experience to families. Two minutes driving, and five minutes walking, Monticello lays close to the Cultural Arts District of Fort Worth. A city rich in both history and culture, Fort Worth offers its residents world-renowned art museums, including the Kimball Art Museum and the Fort Worth Modern Art Museum, Will Rogers Equestrian Center, Scott Theatre, Omni Theatre, and National Cowgirl Museum to name a few in the Cultural District.
The entrance of Monticello opens off of West Seventh Street through an antique red brick entrance into the quiet neighborhood. One of the neatest features of the neighborhood is the variety of homes, condos, and apartments, all older and well kept. For instance, architecturally unique condos greet one as he or she drives through the entrance giving way after two blocks to family homes.
On all sides of the neighborhood, there are condos offered, some modern, some Colonial style, others Mediterranean, and still others stand as rustic hole-in- the-wall well-kept secrets. In the heart of the neighborhood, Monticello Drive meanders past distinctive, quaint homes, each resting behind carefully paved sidewalks. It is not uncommon to see someone rollerblading, walking a dog, or taking a stroll with family throughout the neighborhood along the sidewalks.
Monticello Park, with an updated jungle gym and pristine tennis court, provides families and kids the ideal spot to play, run, and skip together during summer evenings and cooler fall and spring days. Monticello is a great place to live for its proximity to the main attractions in Fort Worth, variety of both newer and classic Fort Worth homes, and tight-knit neighborhood feel. It’s an unbelievable, unforgettable place to call home!
