The houses are built, the furniture’s in place, and Fort Worth Magazine’s first-ever Dream Street is just about ready to welcome guests for the grand tour in October.
So what’s this Dream Street all about? Here’s all you need to know about the project and how to see it for yourself.
What exactly is the Dream Street?
Only our biggest home building project ever.
Every year, we team up with the area’s top builders, designers, and vendors to build a house on spec and showcase the latest in home design — that is, the Dream Home, which you’ve probably heard of.
But this year, we’ve upped the ante, times three, and are building a trio of homes in Southlake’s luxurious Oxford Place development. Check out the renderings below.
Luxury homes are pretty and all, but we’re also doing this for a cause — when visitors come to tour the homes, proceeds from ticket sales go to a Wish with Wings, a nonprofit that grants wishes to terminally or chronically ill children. Since 2013, the magazine has donated more than $100,000 to a Wish with Wings through tours of the Dream Home.
Visitors can come see the Dream Street in person when the homes open for tours Oct. 3 – 25. Tours take place Thursday – Saturday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sunday from noon – 5 p.m. Here’s the map of Oxford Place.
Where to park
Just follow the signs to the cul de sac, where there is reserved parking.
What to do
Follow the signs to the registration table, where you can also purchase tickets. The tours are self-guided, but a volunteer will be onsite to greet you and answer any questions.
You’ll receive a designer brochure and magazine with a list of subcontractors, so if you like what you see, you’ll know whom to reach out to if you want to know more about a paint color, granite option, or flooring.
What about COVID?
We’ll be following several safety protocols in light of COVID-19. You’ll need to pass a temperature check and wear a mask during the tour. We’re also limiting the number of people in each home at a time.
Hand sanitizer will be available at each house. We’ll also be sanitizing the homes every night.
I’m in. How do I get a ticket?
Sweet. Get tickets here.
