Former Texas Rangers’ first baseman Mark Teixeira hasn’t played for the team in more than a decade and retired from baseball in 2016. So it’s time for the five-time Gold Glove Award winner to part with his sprawling Westlake mansion, a waterfront property in the exclusive gated golf community of Vaquero.
Sitting on 1.08 acres, the 8,554-square-foot house offers an ideal floorplan with five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, four half baths, three living areas, two dining areas, indoor-outdoor theater with wet bar, master suite wing, game room, a separate casita for guests, wine cellar, two-story office, pool, hot tub, and cloistered patio. The custom millwork is part of a look that can only be described as perfection!
Teixeira said Vaquero was “the coolest resort community I’d ever seen,” and living there felt like going on a “mini vacation” with its golf lifestyle. He’s hit the nail on the head — Vaquero is unlike any other in North Texas.
Before the auction, come to a Cinco de Mayo CandysDirt.com Staff Party May 5 at this exquisite property. More details below!
Sitting adjacent to the Vaquero golf course, this manse emphasizes outdoor living, from a pool and pool house with gas fire pits to an indoor-outdoor theater with wet bar. Balconies off the second level overlook the course, as well as patio with swimming pool, hot tub, and patio below.
Inside, the house is dark wood, tile, and stone with a high-end rustic-traditional vibe. Gorgeous carved walnut paneling adorns a beautiful double-height library and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace anchors the main living room, which also offers a fully retractable glass door opening to the patio. Impressive elements include a brick-lined wine cellar, stained-glass windows, and distressed hardwood-looking stamped and stained concrete.
In the kitchen, find granite countertops, a breakfast bar, walk-in pantry, butler’s pantry, built-in refrigerator-freezer, double ovens, gas cooktop, dual dishwashers, and a warmer drawer.
There’s a game room with wet bar, which opens to an outdoor balcony above the three-car garage, a space created by Teixeira for his kids.
An indoor-outdoor theater is one of several custom spaces in the home, and the back of it opens out into an outdoor kitchen and patio space.
The master suite has double walk-in closets, double bathrooms, a fireplace, and private terrace with spa and fire pit, all overlooking the golf course. Wonderful!
The upper area houses three bedrooms and large game room. A separate casita has a full bedroom and bathroom, perfect for guests or relaxing after time in the pool.
Elite Auctions is managing the sale with no reserve price, with scheduled private showings every weekend through May 6. There will be a final preview on May 11. Private appointments are available — see the website for more information.
Our CandysDirt.com Cinco de Mayo party will be held in Vaquero at this remarkable home. Stay tuned for more information and to RSVP!
