Monday Morning Millionaire for The Week Before Christmas: Just Get High and Ask Santa To Buy You This Estate at Lake Lewisville’s Sunrise Bay

Yes, we have our $30 million dollar Manson Court mansions, our Mt. Vernon and Troy’s pad, if he ever decides to put Highland Drive back on the market. Of course, if the Hicks ever put The Crespi Estate on the market, it would blow them all out of the water. Speaking of water, why not get away from the maddening crowd and head for Lake Lewisville’s Sunrise Bay? Say you dream of coming home every night to a peaceful water retreat, rather than pining for it at your second home while you stare at your neighbor’s fence Monday through Friday: Sunrise Bay at Lake Lewisville is for you. Not terribly far from I-35 and the Dallas North Toll road, this neighborhood is located in the charming town of Little Elm. It’s probably faster to DFW from here than my house now, thanks to the abortion that is LBJ. And forget the plains: this home is located on a 3.81 acre cul de sac with a CLIFF, an entire 35 foot drop with spectacular lake views.

Designed as his personal home by architect William Hidell of Hidell & Associates, this 7250 square foot home home built in 1997 is truly one-of-a-kind. And it was designed with raw love of architecture! I can tell you first-hand about entertaining at 3959 Spinnaker Point Drive because we have had so many fabulous Supper Clubs there: it flows guests like a faucet.

The front exterior is smooth white stucco with fascinating architectural detail, like a tailored grouping of crisp white boxes. The front stainless steel door is huge, impressive, and if I were the Hidells, I’d take it with me: one of the most unusual doors I’ve ever seen!

Walk into the living room/dining room with soaring 22 foot ceilings overlooking the lake. Oh, you HAVE to go potty: the Hidell’s powder room is to die for — I used to go in there just to see the fabulous stainless steel sink. There is a bar off the hallway leading to the stainless steel glass tread stair that wraps the wet bar, convenient to the entire first floor. The entire first floor experiences and views Lake Lewisville with a panoramic view that is your’s 24/7. Told you about the huge living-dining combo with that limestone fireplace, check. Around the wall is the fab kitchen with a mini morning room, breakfast area and every gourmet appliance — the mistress of the home really cooks! Off this is the family room with walls of custom cabinets. Flow right out to the huge landscaped concrete deck with fireplace, 43,000 gallon pool, fountain, spa, and mosquito mist system.

I don’t talk a lot about garages, but in this home, the garage alone is worth a million bucks: five stalls, two attached and three across a motor court and I’m estimating the height at 22 feet. You could never have south of George Bush because crooks would “go shopping”: the garage doors are floor to ceiling glass, crystal clear. Special overhead storage shelves hold all your junk, but the overall effect is almost artistic. Suffice it to say that you will own one of the prettiest garages in North Texas when you buy 3959 Spinnaker Point.

There are four total bedrooms; the “size of your first apartment” master, 730 square feet, and guest are down. The guest bedroom might as well be a master of it’s own: each bedroom is en suite with huge walk-in closets. Upstairs, too, a media room with built-ins and a 400 square foot balcony with stairs to the pool. Of course you can see that lake view from every room.

Speaking of the water, is it safe to go in? Absolutely. Lake Lewisville is a deep water harbor and 3959 Spinnaker Point has something here extremely rare:  a private Corps of Engineers permitted dock for jet skiing. Two boat slips and four jet ski docks are available.

Don’t let the acreage scare you: the home has an irrigation well to the sprinkler system, so that grass will always be green. Little Elm Independent School District. Complete security system, too. Asking $3,250,000 and worth every penny.
