Hardwicke House – Valley Ridge

This Period Revival style house was the design of Victor Marr Curtis, an architect who accompanied A. C. Luther to Fort Worth from Florida and whose plans were used for early houses in Westover Hills for the firm of Byrne & Luther, Inc. Generally rectangular in plan, the one and one-half story brick house has a steep gable roof clad in clay shingle tile and a central turret with conical roof. Door surrounds and arched window voussoirs are of stone. First owner of the dwelling was Robert E. Hardwicke, an attorney with the law firm of Hardwicke, Breisford and Cheek. Fort Worth architect-engineer Preston Geren purchased the house in 1953. The extenor brick has been painted, and the house underwent alterations in 1965 and 1987.
