I saw a house for sale on 3000 jennings that was built in 1912. It is huge. I was wondering if it was a boarding house originally. What is the neighborhood like?

It was originally a duplex and the previous owner did some remodeling to make it a single family home...

Found out about house. It was built in 1911 by the then city comptroller W Givens who was over real estate in Fort worth. He later had his realt eatate business at his home as well. In 1926 it was turned into a duplex then over the years has been used as a 2-6 unit apartment building. I was curious about the style. The original Sanburns fire records state the upstairs was original not closed in at later date as you would think. I have noticed several houses in area with same look. Closest description would be a Prairie style home but with an almost bungalow look to top story. Any idea who the architect might have been?

We love it too. We know it needs work, yes it will take some money but mostly elbow grease. It has such great bones.

Lovely house...I do love older homes, they all didn't look exactly the same as today...where all the houses look the same or your house and every 5th one look exact...Why and when did they stop making charming homes?
