The 2021 Dream Street — three high-end, luxury homes built in the new Montrachet development in West Fort Worth — is well underway. A larger, more ambitious iteration of the Dream Home, which served as Fort Worth Magazine’s flagship event for 20 years, this marks the second time that the magazine will be tripling its output and erecting three homes instead of one.
Each home, which will have different builders, architects, interior designers, and various other subcontractors, will offer a distinct take on today’s home building trends. The homes will be completed and touring will begin in November. Proceeds from touring help benefit A Wish With Wings, a Fort Worth charity that grants wishes to children with life-threatening conditions. The same month that touring is slated to begin, Fort Worth Magazine will release a special Dream Street issue that covers the ins and outs of each home — from the technology to the interior design.
Of course, the most important aspect of building a home is, in fact, the builder. Overseeing every aspect of the home from conception to completion, the builder is akin to the director a film. They delegate tasks but are keenly aware of even the most minute of details. Ultimately, while they might have received plans from an architect and furnishings from an interior designer, the home is their vision.
This year’s trio of builders includes John Webb of Heritage Homes; Tim Windmiller of Windmiller Custom Homes; and Rick Wegman, Karl Hahnfeld, John Giordano, and Rob Cocanower of HGC Residential Development.
