Dear Kevin & Danielle: Where in the world are you going? Is 2000 Rock Dove Court just too close to mom and dad and the bros over on Wisteria? (We hope not!) Late Saturday night, K2 as he is known, the eldest and only married Jonas brother and his wife, Danielle, put their 5045 square foot Vaquero home on the market for $2,200,000.

I shouldn’t have to tell you about life in Vaquero – – it’s where all the stars and anyone who does not want paparazzi around live.  With that Fazio par 71 course, it’s golf nirvana and home to Ben Crane, K.J. Choi, Todd Hamilton, plus Tiger Wood’s ex- golf instructor Hank Haney. Lots of baseball celebs: Vernon Wells, who plays for the Toronto Blue Jays is building a 15,000 -plus square foot home, as is the ex-CEO of Exxon-Mobile. Vanessa Swarovski, heir to the famous crystal family, also has a home in Vaquero. As does that Mark Charles Teixeira guy.

Unless you belong there, like Chuck Greenburg, you don’t get in. With that proximity to DFW’s private FBO,  2000 Rock Dove Court is a perfect home for the Jonas generation II. Built in 2004, the home has been designed and decked out by the M2 Design Group and boasts walls of floor-to-ceiling windows. Which is great on those huge Vaquero lots – -this one is .71 of an acre. The exterior is Mediterranean with Austin stone and tile/slate roof.

Maybe it’s that the home only has three bedrooms, and the Jonases want to start a fam. There are three baths off each bedroom, plus three half baths, five living areas, a pool, outdoor living area with fountains, covered outdoor dining, fireplace and so many water features you might mistake the backyard for Hurricane Harbor. The pool and spa are amazing, loaded with water features overlooking the terraced terrain. Of course the kitchen is totally decked out — this is Vaquero! — enough granite and marble to deplete Brazil, and oodles of storage. Four car garage, wood, flagstone and terrazzo floors, mammoth utility room, home theater, gameroom, wine cellar and a beautiful, rich wood-paneled library housing all of Kevin’s work and guitars.

Guess what else comes with this home: a coveted Vaquero golf membership valued at $175,000 and included in the sales price.

You know what I’d do? I’d ask them to throw in all the furniture… including everything in that master bedroom. Then I’d dial up Ebay… jump for more photos.
