House Hunting in Fort Worth With a Wealthy Californian

One sunny morning this spring, a Chevy Suburban pulled up to a sizable Mediterranean-style house in a gated community on the west side of Fort Worth. Inside the SUV, Ernie Tarut was recalling how the warm welcome he’d received at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, held in Arlington last December, had influenced his decision to move his Old Gringo Boots company from San Diego to Cowtown. “It was a great feeling that all these people were excited to have Old Gringo maybe coming here,” he said. “I was like, ‘Why do I want to stay in California? Here it seems like I’m already home.’”

So, just a few months after the rodeo, real estate agent Jamie Adams brought Tarut and his wife, Josy, to check out this two-story, 5,376-square-feet home listed for sale at $1.7 million. It was the couple’s second visit to the house in the Montserrat development, roughly a twenty-minute drive southwest of downtown Fort Worth. The Taruts both liked it—maybe even more than the ritzy penthouse condominium that they were also considering at the Montgomery Plaza building in the city’s West 7th district.

Dream Street 2021: John Zimmerman on Selling a Dream Home

The 2021 Fort Worth Magazine Dream Street, the sequel to last year’s wildly successful inaugural Dream Street, will feature three stunning, luxury homes built, designed, and decorated by some of the region’s best builders, architects, and designers.

Tim Windmiller of Windmiller Custom Homes; Rick Wegman, Karl Hahnfeld, John Giordano, and Rob Cocanower of HGC Residential Development; and John Webb of Heritage Homes will each construct homes that will showcase the latest trends in design and technology in the new Montrachet development in West Fort Worth. The homes will be open for touring this winter, and all proceeds will go to a Wish with Wings, the magazine’s flagship charity that grants wishes to children with life-threatening conditions.

A home typically has three stages: design, build (which includes interior decoration), and sell. Ultimately, everything hinges on the sale, a pressure-packed job that lies in the hands of the Realtor. But how does one sell a home with such a niche clientele? And how has the past year affected the business? We posed these questions to local real estate broker, John Zimmerman of Compass, who is also the real estate agent for one of the three homes that comprises the Fort Worth Magazine Dream Street.

Dream Street 2021: Meet the Architects and Designers

The 2021 Fort Worth Magazine Dream Street, a follow-up to the inaugural 2020 Fort Worth Magazine Dream Street, is set to feature three diverse and jaw-dropping homes from a triumvirate of local builders (HGC Residential Development, Heritage Homes, Windmiller Custom Homes).

Construction on the homes in the new Montrachet development is underway and slated for completion in October, with the homes opening for touring in November. Proceeds from this tour will go toward a Wish with Wings, the magazine’s flagship charity, which grants wishes to local children with life-threatening conditions.

The architects and home designers of each home recently shared their floor plans and renderings, which portray three distinct and magnificent homes. Here, we’re going to introduce you to the architects and home designers and take you on a brief tour of the upcoming houses..

2021 Dream Street: Introducing the Builders

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.
