If you, like me, are stuck in Dallas this weekend, put an end to that right now with this stupendous listing at the Island at Pinnacle Club on Cedar Creek Lake. Truly one of the most extraordinary homes out there I have seen.
But wait, there’s more!
So yes, I am in Dallas for the weekend, which of course means a trip or two to Cooper Aerobics Center. Who do I see there on the elliptical? Luke and Owen Wilson, in town visiting their parents who still live on Strait Lane, for the Memorial Day weekend. Which got me to thinking about close in lake retreats — you can get to 16 Island Drive in Mabank on Cedar Creek Lake, in less than two hours. Mabank is, of course, the deepest end of Cedar Creek, where Long Cove is sited: best, deepest water and hilly topography.
What does this have to do with Luke and Owen? The folks who own 16 Island Drive are dear friends, former neighbors, and our daughters went to school together. Our girls used to hide in the kitchen cabinets of their Preston Hollow home and spy on their older daughter when she was in high school and dating Owen Wilson, who was a St. Mark’s student. Oh the stories we got! Thank God this was before iPhones, or I’m sure there would have been photos!
So when I saw 16 Island Drive, I couldn’t believe how perfect this home is for having family at the lake, especially their old boyfriends!
Why is this perfect for Memorial Day celebrations, as well as other summer holidays? First, it’s immense!
In all, there’s 5,200 square feet, a huge comfy living room, a huge kitchen and breakfast room, five bedrooms, four full baths and one powder, bunk rooms up, luxurious master down with en-suite spa bath, plus a huge covered rear porch patio and a huge dock with boat house which includes two boat lifts, an upper party deck, and stainless steel decking. The flooring is easy-clean tile — you don’t want fancy or wood out here, believe me.
“The Pinnacle Club has a huge air show with an incredible fireworks show following,” says listing agent Kevin Caskey with Dallas City Center Realtors. “Then everyone would come to their place and the kids would make their own massive fireworks show off the party deck with boats anchored all around.”
I mean, party on! This is the ultimate way to live at Cedar Creek, and the only place to be on a holiday weekend. And it’s on the market for just $1.6 million!
