Long Description:
The William J. Bryce House, named "Fairview" by its owner and builder, is an excellent example of a late l9th century residence designed by the noted Fort Worth architect Marshall Sanguinet. Inspired by French Renaissance sources, the house exemplifies the quality of life found in the Arlington Heights subdivision at the turn of the century. William J. Bryce, the builder and first occupant of the residence, was a successful contractor who later served as the mayor of Fort Worth.
