A Fabulous Fort Worth Apartment

Perhaps the most obvious difference between a good apartment and a great apartment is the style and comfort of it right as you step in the door: a good apartment would look livable, but bare bones until you move your furniture in, while a great apartment shines on its own before you even frame your first photo. The Berkeley features beauty in every single luxury apartment home, making it easy for you to make it your own.

For starters, the two-tone paint throughout the entire apartment adds an extra dimension of luxury that a single tone couldn’t offer. The nine-foot tall ceilings ensure that even your tallest bookshelves and posters can stand upright without issue. Marvel at the lovely wood-style flooring in the living and dining areas, strong enough to withstand everyday accidents and traffic, easy enough to clean, and classic enough to match nearly any décor. Cook up something fantastic in the expansive kitchens, featuring sleek and polished granite countertops and subway tile backsplash, track lighting, and modern appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator. Keep your home organized with the large walk-in closets in every bedroom, along with the washer and dryer connections for doing laundry at home, and extra storage beside the airy private balconies. Warm up the chilly winter season with an optional fireplace, or stay cool in the summers with center air conditioning and two-inch blinds. Finally, stay connected to your loved ones even when they’re out of town using our high-speed internet access and our handy AT&T U-Verse service.

A Home for You and Your Car

While owning a car may not necessarily be a requirement – particularly when you live in such a convenient city like Fort Worth where most grocery stores and other necessities are only a few blocks away – it’s definitely beneficial to do so: you get to leave and arrive home at your own time, and while traffic can be a mess at times you’re guaranteed a quick trip home and back. So why not get an apartment that fits your vehicle as well as yourself?

Here at the Berkeley, many of our luxury apartments offer attached garages and covered parking to keep your car clean and secure from inclement weather. Take for example our B1G two-bedroom apartment floor plan: its 1,018 square feet of space is impressive alone, but its indoor features and attached garage add icing to the cake. The coat closet right by the front door gives you and your guests an opportune spot to hang your thick coats, while the washer and dryer set helps clean your clothes right at home; both bedrooms have large, walk-in closets to organize everything once you’re done. Set up some snacks or practice your cooking skills in the spacious kitchen, featuring a raised island bar along with plenty of pantry and cabinet space for easy storage. Relax in the large living room, wide enough to fit your favorite couch and TV set, or breathe in some fresh air from the neighboring patio; there’s even a small storage space right on the balcony for putting away holiday decorations or moving clutter. The master and guest bedroom have ample space to fit even a king sized bed and connect to luxurious bathrooms, both of which include a hefty soaking tub while the master also has a stand-in glass shower. And of course, the attached garage right below gives a cool, closed in spot for your ride.

Feel free to ride around the world and then back home again here at the Berkeley. Stop by our leasing office in Fort Worth today to check out our available B1G lot, but act fast: there’s only one luxury apartment of this style left!

Acrylic and Clay Time Travel

Every day we’re surrounded by markers of our past, whether it’s a memorial or monument to a long past conflict, an old building that stood the test of time around many new glass skyscrapers, or the little memories we make on photographs. Before we had cameras, however, we had easels, paint, ceramic, and charcoal to express our thoughts and the world around us during the time we make a piece of artwork. An art gallery, in other words, is very much a time machine, one that can easily be accessed through living at The Berkeley luxury apartments in Fort Worth.

A mere ten-minute drive away from our complex, the Kimbell Art Museum presents a stunning collection of artwork from all around the world, all the way up to the early 20th century. Explore the earliest carvings of the old pharaohs of Egypt, to the religious paintings of ancient Rome and early Christianity, to various masterpieces of the European Renaissance, to beautiful artworks from Asia and Africa. Take a public tour to learn specifics about certain artwork, or walk along the museum on your own pace by reading the descriptions on every piece. Special exhibitions and newly acquired artwork will cycle through every season, so it’s nearly impossible to see the exact same things twice. Admission to the permanent collection is entirely free; ticket prices may be charged for certain special exhibitions, which will be half off every Tuesday and discounted through memberships, groups, and military. Open hours range from 10a-5p Tues through Thurs along with Sat, noon-8p on Fri, and noon-5p on Sun, with closures on Mondays, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.

Celebrate the beauty and imagination of the past right outside your doorstep. Stop by the Berkeley to browse our luxury apartments and complex, and then make a trip to the wonderful Kimbell Art Museum whenever you get the chance.

An Outdoor Extravaganza

As spring slowly turns into summer, the weather keeps at a steady pleasant temperature throughout the day; the sunny days stand out in their gorgeousness. There’s hardly any excuse to not spend the weekend outside with your loved ones – except for perhaps allergies – so it never hurts to live in a community that encourages outdoor fun, such as The Berkeley luxury apartment homes near downtown Fort Worth Texas.

For starters, what’s a summer party without a pool? The Berkeley offers two separate swimming pools to choose from, each of them large enough to accommodate advanced swimmers that want to get in a daily set of laps and the casual waders that want to lounge and raft against the gentle waters. Each pool includes a sundeck and comfortable lounge chairs to dry off and soak in the warm sun, complimentary access to stay connected to friends and family or to watch favorite vids, a spa to sit around and ease your senses, and shaded areas with modern BBQ grills for hosting great cookouts and gatherings. Our lovely three courtyards give you plenty of room to explore, jog, or play however you wish throughout the day, while the outdoor fireplace is the perfect place to gather and share stories as the sun goes down. Puppy lovers will enjoy our two spacious dog parks, great for running around with your furry best friends. Finally, our close proximity to the Fort Worth Zoo and the West 7th shopping district will guarantee something exciting to do on those perfect summer days.

So prep some sunscreen, don your swimsuits, and enjoy the best of outdoor entertainment here at the Berkeley. Visit us this weekend to tour our large community and see for yourself all our awesome amenities.

Some Room for Your Thoughts

Let’s face it: it’s ok to love your stuff. We might not need them at the moment, but you can’t bear to let them go or they have more use during certain times of the year; after all, you can’t really use skis in the middle of summer, especially in the heart of Texas. Here at The Berkeley luxury apartment homes in Fort Worth Texas, our apartments come with more than enough space to store anything you need and even those needs that aren’t immediate.

The spacious walk-in closets in every bedroom let you store all your clothes, and shoes, and accessories with ease, whether you’re a fashion connoisseur or have a small set of go-to outfits. The private patio and balcony make the perfect spot to set out outdoor equipment and hobbies, such as folding chairs or miniature gardens, and many apartments include extra storage much like a shed, so you can put away seasonal decorations or moving boxes in a neat manner until you want to use them again. Finally, a few of our apartment plans have direct access to a garage, great for keeping your ride secure against inclement weather and giving you a guaranteed spot right by your home.

Of course, there are plenty of other amenities take to make the most of your space, such as our lovely two-tone paint, our contemporary kitchens with side-by-side refrigerators, wheelchair access to allow anyone to visit, and AT&T U-verse service to connect to the internet in record time.

Spring Time is Zoo Time

Spring is one of the best times to visit the zoo: the warm – but not too warm – weather makes walking under the sun a breeze, the animals are at their liveliest after the cool chill of winter, and while the crowds may be plentiful they’re all there to make the most of their visit. Everyone, kids and adults alike, can have a blast visiting the zoo for a weekend, and here at the Berkeley you get the chance to live right next to one.

Only a mile away from the Berkeley stands the famous Fort Worth Zoo, one of the biggest animal attractions in the entire state of Texas. Featuring 542 unique species of animals in 64 acres of space, ranging from mammals and birds to reptiles and fish from all over the globe, there’s a little something for any kind of nature enthusiast or biologists in the making. Every exhibit shows both the wonder and care that lives in every single animal, such as the various endangered and threatened species that thrive in the facility right down to the rare creatures that just aren’t seen anywhere else. The zoo is open all year long, and the spring hours are 10a-5p on the weekdays and 10a-6p on Saturday and Sunday; tickets are $14 for adults, $10 for kids 3-12 and seniors 65 and up, and free for the tiniest babies. Parking is an additional $5, but since the Berkeley is only a twenty minute walk away you can save that for the various treats and sweets inside.

So kick off spring with some great edutainment just right outside your front door. Check out the Berkeley apartments to take a tour of our complex and available lots and be sure to stop by the Fort Worth Zoo during your stay.

More Color, More Comfort

Perhaps one of the small downsides to owning an apartment is the difficulty of adding color to it; most flats have the same color – white, more often than not – on the walls that doesn’t stand out, and even if you decide to be bold and paint the walls however you like, you’re forced to cover it up again when you move out. Wouldn’t it be better to have an apartment that starts out lovely on the first day? Here at the Berkeley apartments in Fort Worth, we have just that.

To begin with, every one of our apartments has a little extra when it comes to style: two-tone paint gives some gentle contrast and stands out from the standard white wall look; 9 foot tall ceilings let you stack furniture and place all kinds of posters and décor on the walls; and the crown molding, arched doorways, two-inch blinds, wood-style flooring in the living and dining areas, and ceramic tile in the bathroom give more beauty to your home.

Our apartments also offer practical comforts. Stay connected with your friends and family with our high speed internet access and AT&T U-Verse service. Cook up something great in the kitchens with sturdy granite countertops, subway tile backsplash, and modern appliances such as a side-by-side refrigerator. Soak in the sun at the private balcony, keep cool under the ceiling fans, or keep warm by the fireplace. Keep organized with extra storage and spacious walk-in closets. Last but not least, make it easier to get home every day with direct garage access from select suites and wheelchair/handicap access.

Make your home beautiful, inside and out. Visit The Berkeley to take a look at our available flats to find the perfect suite for your needs today.
