The sun is out, finally, and maybe we are all thinking about getting on the water next weekend? After all, Memorial Day is just around the corner. But the thought of all that traffic…

I have an idea.lake Grapevine

Get a home on Lake Grapevine, a second home that could someday be a first. Maybe four couples buy in, create a private fractional? That way you will be (1) 30 minutes away from a weekend full of water fun and (2) 10 minutes away from DFW. In fact, you could catch all early morning flight from now on and probably save enough on airfare to cover the HOA’s here and more — they are ONLY $350 a year for the association and another $350 a year for the boat dock.

Wait, did I say boat dock? On Lake Grapevine?

2605 Lake Ridge Road, Flower Mound (this is the video!) is one of the few homes where you can still have boats (or kayaks or sea-doos) and enjoy the Lake Grapevine waters: the marina is grandfathered in on this part of Lake Grapevine. The Army Corps of Engineers controls most of the Lake Grapevine waterway, but there are a few select homes that were built in this one special community that still retain water rights.

Not only do you have those water rights forever, this home is a private lake retreat custom home down a quiet country road that was built in 2005. So it is practically brand new.

Seriously, buy this as a place to stay before getting on a plane. Think of the Airb&b possibilities…

You get stunning outdoor views even though you are minutes from civilization (and Starbucks), the dock and boat access to Lake Grapevine, a pond with fountains and… a six acre greenbelt.

As for the house, the most important thing with any lake home is the entertainment flow of the home. And trust me, being this close to Dallas, you will be having guests over ad nauseum because of the proximity. The home is designed around the large gourmet kitchen just waiting for flapjacks, the stone fireplace in the great room, and the media room upstairs plus game room where the kids can unwind after a day of water activity. I love the hand-scraped hardwoods, the stone facade on the huge granite breakfast bar, and the ample counter space in that kitchen. Perfect, too, is the downstairs master retreat and guest suite, plus a fully screened in porch with 360 degree water views. Two large bedrooms are upstairs with Jack and Jill bath. In all, the house packs a lot into 4277 square feet with four bedrooms, three full baths. There is a three car garage that can cradle a boat. The home is on .62 of an acre but like we said, you will have access to a six acre greenbelt you will not have to tend, water, or trim. Let the HOA handle it!

Now in case you decide to sell the main residence and live here full time, as 30% of vacation home owners do, you will have the protection of great Flower Mound schools!

My weekend gift to you: a total lake house 20 minutes from Park Cities or North Dallas! This home has been reduced (cannot tell why) but their loss is your big opportunity: $725,000. Yep, that’s it. Listed with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Malinda Arvesen. Anyone want to split a home on Lake Grapevine with me? We can test it out next weekend OR THIS SUNDAY from 2 to 4:00 pm. Get there by car or boat!
