Auction Alert! Snag Mark Teixeira's Westlake Vaquero Mansion with No-Reserve | CandysDirt.com

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. 

Valued at more than $4 million, the stone-and-stucco house at 2220 King Fisher Dr. will be auctioned May 12 at 11 a.m. in a no-reserve event hosted by Elite Auctions

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!
