Jonas Brothers K2 Sells Home in Vaquero, Moves On

Share News:

We don’t know why, but last fall the newlywed Jonas brother, Kevin, and his New Jersey-born wife, Danielle, put their Vaquero home on the market over there at 2000 Rock Dove Court. (Don’t tell us: The house was too close to Mom and Dad and the other Jonas brothers over there on Wisteria Way? Or maybe they just wanted to be in LA? We totally understand, Kev.) The 5,045-square-foot Westlake, Texas mansion was listed for $2.2 million. And here’s proof that our market just isn’t all that bad: a woman named Mary Skipton bought K2’s home on December 21, 2010 for a cool $2 million.

So gloom on about this market, but from what I am seeing, things are starting to pick up.

Originally developed by Discovery Land Company in 2002, Vaquero is a gated community for the √ºber-wealthy and loaded with sports stars like pro golfers Ben Crane, K.J. Choi and Todd Hamilton. Tiger Wood’s former golf instructor, Hank Haney, has a home in Vaquero.
Baseball player Vernon Wells, who plays for the Toronto Blue Jays, is building a 15,000-plus-square-foot home there, as is the retired CEO of Exxon-Mobil, but on three lots. Vanessa Swarovski, an heiress to the Swarovski crystal family, also has an enormous home in Vaquero. You don’t get behind the manned gates unless you belong, like Texas Rangers owner Chuck Greenberg. Greenberg’s 8,754 square foot manse is small by most Vaquero standards.

Oh and yes, Sean Payton is moving to Vaquero, commuting to New Orleans by private jet.
